In a world of ever-changing brands, products and trends, ELAC builds on its legacy with the vision of moving thinking beyond the present. This is ELAC built on its commitment to making the best sound in the world. It began on September 1, 1926, with the establishment of Electroacustic GmbH in Kiel, Germany, to focus on the development of sonar technology and research of signal and sound channels in air and water.
ELAC's passion for music and admiration for sound continued in 1948 with the PW1 record player, the first consumer sound product. ELAC continued to lead the thriving audio industry with innovative turntables and electronics. In the 1970s and 1980s, every serious music lover had a high quality turntable, and the lucky few had ELAC, the backbone of the best sound systems.
In 1984, ELAC started designing loudspeakers together with AXIOM Electroacoustic Speaker Specialists. A year later, ELAC's newly developed 4Pi omnidirectional tweeter is a driver that combines extended range with wide dispersion, bringing high quality sound to true "top" sound. He turned the listening world into the collective ear and made ELAC the company of the most distinguished speaker manufacturers.
ELAC and innovation go hand in hand, and in 1993 ELAC introduced the JET folded ribbon tweeter. With an expanded frequency response of up to 35 kHz, the JET tweeter has proven to sound better across the entire range of a driver whose response goes beyond the limits of human hearing. JET has been continuously developed and stands out today in both home and automotive applications.
