ELAC Debut F5 Tower Speakers (EA)
With its custom drivers and floorstanding design, the Debut F5 is a great choice for a serious two-channel rig or as the nucleus of a multi-channel setup.
THE GOOD The ELAC Debut F5 offers excellent floorstander performance for half the price of some competitors. The speakers sport attractive styling and decent build quality. A whole surround package will only set you back $1,500, which is less than some sound bars.
THE BAD The Debut F5 is only available in a black, vinyl finish.
THE BOTTOM LINE The ELAC Debut F5 tower speaker delivers astonishing performance for the price.
