Elac Debut ConneX DCB41 – Active shelf speakers with HDMI and phono stage
The debut model of the Elac Debut ConneX series is the DCB41 compact two-way shelf. The DCB41 claims to be the universality in demand: in addition to the digital / optical input, there is also HDMI ARC on board (make friends with the TV). As desktop speakers, you can connect to a PC / Mac via USB – a signal up to 96 kHz / 24 bit is available. Bluetooth, and with support for aptX (provides CD-quality), is also not forgotten.
In terms of their structure, the Elac Debut ConneX DCB41 are two-way bookshelf speakers with a phase inverter, and the aerodynamic S-shaped port is directed backwards – this should be taken into account. Note that in the corporate picture, the speakers are almost close to the back wall. A pair of built-in amplifiers of 50 W each work in class D, so that overheating does not threaten the speakers. To enhance the bass, you can turn on the proprietary patented Elac XBass Enhancer.
There is also an analog input on the back of the master speaker, complemented by a phono stage input. It remains to add a turntable, and the volume of the system can be adjusted with an encoder right here on the rear panel.
