ELAC just seems to get the audio zeitgeist. Every single one of their new products has been right on target, with great sound at reasonable prices. The EA-Series EA101EQ-G is no exception. This stylish compact integrated amp has enough inputs to support a fairly complicated audio system, one of the most intuitive and useful control apps I’ve used – except for its name! – and a powerful amplifier. ELAC also priced it very well for such a versatile and stylish compact integrated DAC amp.ELAC’s Auto Blend & Calibrate applet steals the show. ABC is subwoofer-speaker blending and room correction from a speaker designer’s perspective.
