Internationally known speaker designer Andrew Jones joins ELAC to create the ELAC DebutTM speaker series. The introduction coincides with ELAC’s return to North America with an exhibit ELAC_JONEST.H.E. Show in Irvine, Calif., May 29-31, 2015.

“ELAC is pleased to bring Andrew Jones on board, as the company expands into global market with products that establish benchmarks for performance and quality at every price point and in every category of the customer audio market”, says Gunter Kürten, managing director of the 89-year old company.

Designed in Cypress California, ELAC’s DebutTM series “redefines affordable speakers with eight models, including two bookshelf, floorstanding, center-channel and Dolby Atmos©–enabled speakers, complemented by three subwoofers”.

“My design objective was to achieve the most accurate sound possible in speakers that deliver performance far exceeding their cost”, says Jones. “I’ve employed materials and design specifications not found in speakers in this price range. From cone materials to driver geometry to subwoofer amplification, we built serious value into the Debut series”, Jones said.

Industry veteran Andre Jones’ 35-year career includes a portfolio of award winning loudspeakers. Jones previous positions include Chief Speaker Engineer at Pioneer Electronics, Technical Audio Devices (TAD), KEF and Infinity.
