When the Elac Debut B6 speakers first hit the market at the unbelievable price of $279, this is what CNET had to say about them:
“The ELAC Debut B6 bookshelf speakers offer stellar, best-in-class sound quality that no other speakers can match at this low price.”
Stereophile also had some high praise for the B6:
“Who cares what they cost? Forget about recommending them to only your non-audiophile friends. Elac Americas’ new Debut B6 loudspeaker is an extremely competent audiophile design that is more musical and concise than any other speaker I’ve heard that costs less than $1000/pair. “
So let me tell you, as someone who personally owns these speakers and also loves the sound, the current price of $199.98 on Amazon is a crazy deal! It’s hard to get a decent pair of used speakers at this price must less a brand new pair.
If you have a small budget, and you’re looking for a great pair of speakers to build a new hi-fi system around, get these right away…they will not last long.
