It looks like Amazon is having a blowout on these! Amazon is $332.49/each, $665/pair. Whereas other sites like Crutchfield and BB have them for $580/each, $1160/pair. Honestly, that's cheap enough to make me want to buy a set and I don't even remotely have a need for them.

I haven't used these myself but I did order the bookshelves a few years back, but they had a cosmetic issue so I sent them back and just took a refund.

I will say the concentric design yields a better soundstage, a more 3-D soundstage, than other designs like an MT or MTM. That's something that just can't be replicated with a standard MTM or MT design. Soundstage is a huge factor for me. With most AVRs you can correct for tonality easily via the auto-eq but you can't fix polar response issues at the crossover caused by the non-coincidental mounting. And that's the big advantage coincident mid/tweeter designs like the ELAC offer.

I pulled up some reviews and all are very positive, as expected.
This guy's reviews are always excellent: Review: ELAC Uni-Fi UF5 floor standing speakers | Part-Time Audiophile



If any of you guys are looking for a nice set of speakers for home audio use I'd say jump on these at this price.

Well, he's had a little experience with them through me. Maybe that's what he's basing it on. Not sure. But when I used the ones I had I was quite fond of them.

the ones from the r100/r300/r500.

The blades would have been easier to install with that neo magnet. The ones I used had a HUGE ferrite magnet on them.

If you ever consider selling the ones from the Blade let me know. I'd love to get my hands on them to test.

Saw that deal and almost pulled the trigger but I'm dead set on saving up to give some Ohm Walsh towers a try.
