ELAC Element Amplifier – Hi-Fi Choice Recommended

At the heart of its new range of Element mini-separates, ELAC’s latest integrated amplifier packs a punch, says David Price.

“...the ELAC delivers a bouncy rendition of that old club classic Pacific 707 from 808 State. This is electronic dance music from 25 years ago, mastered on DAT and hardly what you’d call an audiophile recording. Yet this amplifer is able to scythe through the mushy mix surprisingly well, throwing out large amounts of detail. More impressively, it’s able to piece together the music in a rhythmically coherent way – it has a decent degree of control and this allows the listener to really get into the groove and enjoy things.”
