ELAC - Navis 5-1/4" Powered Wireless 3-Way Floor Speakers (Pair) - Gloss Ebony Emara $1999 (Normally $3999)

$1,999.98

EDIT: Now sold out

Found this price while browsing online. These are normally $4,000 for a pair and Best Buy has them for $2,000 a pair. At first I thought it was only one speaker but the product description says "pair", it shows two speakers in the picture, and under specs it says " Number Of Speakers 2"

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/elac...Id=6371120

The bookshelf version of these won the 2019-20 EISA award for best product in the active speaker category: https://www.eisa.eu/awards/elac-navis-arb-51/

This more expensive floor version adds two additional woofers.

Nice find. $2k is a sweet spot for speakers -- it's where the point of diminishing returns really kicks in -- there's a lot for $2k that rivals much more expensive speakers.

I have not heard this line of ELAC speakers, but I have liked all the other ELAC speakers I have heard and consider them one of the best brands of speakers (especially for value).

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT ACTIVE / POWERED MEANS:
These speakers have built-in amplifiers and do NOT have traditional speaker connectors. They will NOT work with a lot of receivers. ONLY if your receiver has preamp outputs can you use these speakers with a traditional receiver-based system.

(Yes if you're determined to use active speakers with a receiver that doesn't have pre-outs, you could get a speaker level -to- line level adapter. But such adapters can compromise the sound and it's kind of silly and wasteful to use an amp to drive another amp.)

Here's what the connections on the NAVIS speakers look like: https://elac-content.s3.amazonaws...mall-2.png

Looks like B&H has the same pricing mistake: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/pr...wered.html

Then it's probably not a pricing mistake. There is already a precedent for ELAC speakers going on sale for half price. It's happened a number of times.

How close are these to the Uni-Fi's? I already have the towers, but like the idea of a self powered speaker. I just don't think it is worth the upgrade if I am not getting better drivers.

Good review for those interested.

The review even states the price is~$2000 per pair...

Wrong.

"Navis series of active speakers, which includes a stand-mount model, the ARB-51 reviewed here ($1999.98/pair, all prices USD), and a floorstander, the ARF-51 ($3999.98/pair)."
