You get what you pay for
unless you buy eltax
in which case you get a lot more than you paid for
Eltax is a swedish brand who are known for good products at great prices, their stuff is available from Richer sounds who are a popular UK hi-fi chain store
The Construction quality is actually very good for the money, no complaints at all in terms of build quality- I have it in the beech finish, and to be honest I wish i'd got in in black- as far as I know there is no 'walnut' or more luxurious wood finish choices- when you pay a lot more money for a speaker you get something that arguably looks better, better finish and better styling- the eltax is a little utilitarian looking.
In terms of performance I have nothing bad to say, maybe there are better speakers out there but I have never heard them- my father has a centre speaker that cost a lot more than this eltax did and I can't really hear the difference. I have mine set up as a centre with non eltax front speakers, personally I haven't found an issue with that but aesthetically they don't match, so if you wanted matching speakers then you'd get the 5.1 eltax set- i've never heard the rest of the eltax range but i've heard good things written about them, so if you want matching speakers but don't like the sound of the eltax front speakers you might have to spend a lot more money to get speakers from a different brand instead- otherwise I think that the eltax centre would make a great addition to other speakers- and if you get it in black it's unobtrusive enough to not stand out too much
good speakers, good sound quality, nice built quality, slightly uninspiring looks, and great value
spencer from london... I have had tannoys , yamaha, sony, & mission center speakers, but i must tell you these are one of the best center speakers i have ever used. music power some 220watt they have no port hole, fully enclosed, so all the sound comes right out at you, unlike some big center speakers with rear port holes, can sound a bit boomy. Tust me if you know your sound. try these this is what a center speaker should sound like. 100%
