Elac Debut B5.2 What Hi-Fi? Award 2020 winner

“The Elac’s original Debut speaker range was launched around a few years ago to a fair amount of acclaim. Now it’s back with Debut 2.0, and these are the entry-level Debut B5.2 speakers. We tested the entry-level Debut B5 and liked their combination of fluid midrange and timing, though found dynamics and drive fell short of that delivered by the class leaders. Established budget superpowers such as Q Acoustics and Dali could rest easy knowing their respective products still held the upper hand. ”

“Elac has been in the speaker business since the 1980s and has made many fine products in that time. It’s fair to say that these new Debut B5.2 speakers should be considered one of the company’s finest efforts, particularly when their price is taken into account. If the established budget speaker brands aren’t worried about these boxes, they should be.”
