ELAC Uni-Fi UB5 is yet another quality pair of speakers from ELAC. If you liked ELAC Debut B6, you will certainly love these. Even if you don’t at the moment, you will grow accustomed to them. The designer of these is already well-known. His name is Andrew Jones, and he designed your favorite KEF Q350, for example. His expertise is the high-quality but affordable speakers. He showed us just how good can speakers get while staying lower in price. To clarify, the price of ELAC Uni-Fi UB5 pair of speakers is only $350. Let’s see just what you will get in the package:

The specifications are unbeatable when compared to price, and this is certainly one of the best budget speakers today. Even though it’s quite large, it will fit on a bookshelf of your choice. Now, it might stick out just a bit, so make sure to protect it from falling. The design is beautiful and the whole outlook looks modern. The color is called black ash vinyl, and it looks just the way it sounds. The only ”bad” thing is that it feels a bit hollow when you nudge it, but in our analysis, it didn’t affect the sound.

ELAC Uni-Fi UB5 is famous for having a brushed vinyl finish on it. Although beautiful, it shows wear-and-tear pretty quickly. Especially in the corners, it feels like it starts to peel after some time. A solution can be the other design they offer – wooden finish. If you chose that one, and as per other user reviews, you will experience a lot more durability. The connectivity is all on the back, and you will find gold-plated all metal posts. They work with everything, so-called banana plugs, pins or even wires without shielding.

It’s important to know that each speaker weights around 7.5 kg, which is quite a big. As per manufacturer recommendations, you should place them so your ears are near the same height as speakers’ tweeters. Now the sound quality of ELAC Uni-Fi UB5 is on the menu. The bass went unexpectedly deep in our opinion, and it’s insanely good for the price. If you decide to hook up a tone generator, you’ll see just how good it really is. Midrange tonality was precise and, can we say, superb. In fact, when compared to it’s younger brother, ELAC Debut B6, it showed superiority!

Even though B6 was a very impressive pair of speakers by default, it outdid it in every way. Not only is the bass deeper and more defined, both midrange and treble are improved. We’ve noticed something in the specs of ELAC Uni-Fi UB5, though. It seems that because of a low sensitivity, just 85 dB at 2.83V. That means the features need a lot more power to play at loud volumes. It isn’t a deal breaker in any way, just a bit unusual. Also, it entirely depends on the amplifier you decide to use. If hooked to a more expensive and stronger amplifier, it shines brightly and sounds like a way more expensive pair of speakers.
