      Much improved over Debut C5

      I recently got into the higher end budget audio game and started out with the Elac debut b6 bookshelves along with some small home theater in a box insignia speakers in a 5.1 setup. I love the b6s and their warm sound for listening to music in stereo. However, I quickly realized with my setup that I needed to upgrade the center channel to make voices in movies and music not sound so tinny (in 5.1) so I decided to get the matching Elac C5 center channel. I was somewhat disappointed with it after listening to a lot of music and movies through it. They maintained the same warmth of the b6 bookshelves which did not translate well to the dedicated vocals in my opinion. Movie voices were not very clear and listening to music with the C5 It sounded like the vocals (especially female vocalists or guys like Sam Smith) were muffled, like I was listening to them through a closed door. To my surprise the 2.0 series came out within a month of me getting the C5 and I pulled the trigger on the C6.2 after reading the CNET review. AJ seemed to have specifically addressed the aforementioned issue because the difference is night and day. Vocals are clear as day in music and movies and sound very crisp and natural unlike with the C5. Where I had to turn up the volume in movie dialog before they now come through like they are talking in the same room as I am. The sound quality outside of vocals is still phenomenal through the C6.2 like the b6s just a bit brighter as CNET goes into depth about, and I appreciate the front ports as it does sit somewhat close to the wall in my entertainment center. I was a bit concerned with the Best Buy demo C6.2 as the pegs on the grille didn’t line up with the holes on the speaker, and it literally was hanging on by two of the six pegs. My grille however fits just fine even though I leave it off most of the time. As far as looks go, I think it looks pretty good under the TV (without the grille) I know some were complaining about the looks of it but I think the removal of the silver pegs makes it a little lower profile and the vinyl wrap doesn’t seem to be as reflective as the old wrap was. Build quality seems just as good to me as any of the original debut speakers which is great in my opinion. All in all I am very impressed with the C6.2 especially when compared with the old C5 (already returned it), and it works well with the B6 bookshelves next to it. Planning on getting the B6.2s next and moving my current B6s to the rear to replace the small satellites I have back there now. 10/10 would recommend the C6.2, it sounds great!

      Beat all others in listening tests

      I compared the ELAC 6.2 to several other center channel systems while at Best Buy's Magnolia listening rooms in West Palm Beach. I was truly impressed by the efficiency and depth of this center speaker. I also want to say how much I appreciated being left alone in the listening room so I could handle all of the switching and comparisons, myself. I understand this is not normally permitted, but the sales associate was very understanding and obviously trusted me after a brief "interview". I'm writing this review due to my surprise as to how much better this speaker performs than systems costing, literally, twice as much. This is the only center speaker I could find that had almost a magical, non-digital softness without losing any clarity or definition. I do recommend setting your crossover to 80. I'm running this through a Pioneer 502 with a pair of DT 9020's, a supercube and a pair of acoustimass III modules on stands for surround. The only speaker system that came close to the superb sonics of the ELAC Debut 2.0 6.2 was the Definite Technology series -- All of them (the DT's) at all price points, were excellent and exceeded, in my opinion, all other selections available in the listening rooms at Best Buy....except for this one singularly amazing speaker, the ELAC DEBUT 2.0 6.2. Go listen.

      Sooo. When I first hooked it up it was horrible. Muffled and no highs. Blended in and couldn’t understand dialog. Then I remember my system had been set up automatically with a microphone for my old speakers. Ran the auto setup on my av receiver again and amazing. This center speaker know kicks butt. Amazing. Dialog is both crisp and bold. Low voices are low and full. Gave my system new and exciting life. I really am amazed every time I listen to it considering the price!!

      The first movie I watched with this new center (which replaced a no-name pawn shop special) was The Fifth Element. The clarity and soundstage is just amazing. I'm going to enjoy home theater so much more than I did before. It's also excellent for playing music.

      After doing a lot of research, I came to this brand and I am glad I did. I had initially ordered it online but it was going to take over a month for delivery since it was back ordered. When I saw the my local B.B. had it I ran to the store to get it. Amazing sound, crispy every time. I also went with the brand’s other speakers.

      When watching programs other than movies the voices are loud enough to be heard. But when watching movies the voices get lost in the other sounds. I turned up the center and turned down the front L and R but still not clear enough for me. Going to exchange for something else. Bummer.

      Exceptional performance for minimal investment. My only complaint is the size, but I can overlook that due to its value. I highly recommend this center for this price point (if you don’t mind the huge footprint!).

      Extremely modern and clean wooden enclosure. The bass drivers are very high quality and unique, great tweeter. This is not a flimsy center speaker. Sounds best with crossover set at 80Hz in my personal setup.
