They present an easy load though. I run them on a 70wpc amp.

86db sensitivity in a 6" "audiophile" speaker is actually pretty good. At $600 it is excellent. It means the raw woofer is ~89-90.
86dB makes 101dB output with 32W.

I’d like to hear them, last years early show reports were very favourable. Another speaker that intrigues me is the new JBL HDI stand mount. It’s more money but...

Like I said it’s more money, but it intrigues me and I would expect it to be considerably better than the Elac Reference 62. :D :D

I am intrigued after reading the review. I have been looking to put together a second system for the bedroom and don't want to go the floor stander route. Want to keep it simple meaning no sub.  With a 44Hz bottom this might fit the bill. I have to admit that I am impressed with my Elac12 subs paired with my Maggies so I have an open mind. It has been a challenge as most bookshelf speakers seem to be >50Hz.  I wonder how they would sound with an hybrid integrated like the Vincent SV500?  Add the DAC and keep it all under 2k? Jazz, Instrumental, smooth evening tunes.

Mine are breaking in nicely so far.

It appears trianglezerius has started two threads with exactly the same title and exactly the same subject, one of them being moved into the Enclosures circle by another facilitator.  I know you're excited about your new speakers, however this is a violation of site guidelines.  Therefore I'll merge the two topics.

They are finally broke-in and sound like the first generation on steroids. Everything sounds better and bigger. Best $600 I have ever spent in audio.

  That is exactly the reason JBL came out with A170. Huge competition going on.

I have on loan from a friend the JBL Studio 530's I will be comparing the Elac's to soon.

I considered the DR62 but I feel the need or urge or the compulsion to spend more money. It’s so hard to decide when you have no way of listening to any of the speakers that interest you. But I have to say, I’ve read nothing but good things about the DR62.  :thumb:

Do you could ask to an admin merge these threads ?

I don't have to ask admin to merge topics, it's on my dashboard, and is already done.
