Description

Navis Powered Bookshelf Speaker ARB51

Inside each Navis Powered Bookshelf Speaker is a Tri-Amp Pure Analog Amplifier, employing three separate amps for each transducer: a 160-watt BASH AB amplifier for the woofer, a 100-watt BASH AB amplifier for the midrange, and a 40-watt Class AB amplifier for the tweeter. A total amplifier power of 300 watts ensures that each transducer is optimally—and amply—powered, eliminating clipping and crossover distortion, and driving each transducer with authority. Specs like a 110 dBA signal-to-noise ratio and 100 uV noise floor could only come from such audiophile-quality amps!

Beautiful Cabinets

Navis’s elegant design integrates perfectly with any interior. Its enclosure has a fine-furniture finish, available in Gloss Black, Gloss White and Wood Veneer. A dedicated floor stand completes the installation, and is recommended for optimum performance.

All New Custom Designed Midrange/Tweeter

One reason ELAC’s Navis sounds so natural is because of its in-house developed transducer, a 4-inch aluminum midrange driver with a concentrically mounted 1-inch soft-dome tweeter.

Combined, this signature configuration lets Navis set the
performance standard for its class.

 

Flexible Connections

Local inputs include balanced XLR, RCA and Wireless, when used with ELAC’s Discovery Connect wireless transmitter to stream Discovery, Spotify Connect, Bluetooth, AirPlay and Roon. Just switch Wireless “Off” for a no-compromise analog input and output. ELAC’s Navis Powered Bookshelf Speaker is frequently paired with reference sensible speaker wires – RSPW, and performs great on the LS8 Speaker Stands.

What Audiophiles Think…
“…the basic character of the Navis is warm, inviting, easy to listen to, very low fatigue speaker. The treble is very clear, but not aggressive. Mid-range is probably the best part – it’s got body, it’s got soul. And the woofer is surprisingly rich and full.”
– Steve Guttenberg Audiophile
