”I couldn’t have been more impressed with the electrifying performance and value of the Elac Navis ARB-51.” ’The Absolute Sound’ ‘Defying Expectations’

Active speaker with the sound to impress

Featuring Elac’s highly renowned concentric speakers and built-in amplification, the Navis ARB-51 delivers the convenience of an active speaker with the audiophile sound quality you’d expect from Elac speakers. Unlike other active speakers, the Navis ARB-51 don’t follow a master and slave principle but makes both actively powered, giving totally purity of balance between the speakers.

Total vocal precision – from concentric cones
Placing the treble unit within the mid-range speaker gives a single point sound source – meaning the sound is cohesive and seamless. Featuring an aluminium mid-range and soft dome treble unit, the Navis ARB51 moves with total precision. This means that every detail is perfectly resolved, making vocalist’s sound like they are ‘there’ in the room with you. For the lowest distortion, a separate cabinet housing is constructed around the drive units – isolating them from the bass unit.

Dedicated bass
As a 3-way speaker, the bass unit is entirely dedicated to low frequencies. This means it acts like a subwoofer, concentrating on bass without having to also reproduce mid-range frequencies. Although these are compact speakers, close your eyes and you might think the punchy bass is coming from something much larger. If you’d prefer to use the speakers with a separate subwoofer, select a 60Hz or 80Hz cut-off for smoother integration.

300 watts of analogue control
Each speaker features three amplifiers – one for each drive unit. This helps give each speaker precise control, meaning the sound is incredibly lifelike. Analogue amps mean a rich, pure sound that perfectly complements digital and analogue sources alike.

Adjustable response
Each speaker features adjustable EQ levels for the treble, mid-range and bass. This lets you boost or reduce each frequency, for the perfect response in your room.

Balanced or phono inputs*
Each speaker has a mono input for either the left or right signal. Simply connect your pre-amp or source via RCA phono or XLR balanced connections. The option to use XLR Balanced connections enhances the sound, as the signal remains free from interference and signal loss, even over longer runs.
*Please note, a source with volume control is required as this isn’t featured within the speakers.

Optional wireless connectivity
For a top quality, wireless connection between your source and speakers, take a look at the optional Navis Air X2 transmitter. Connect your source to the Air X2 by RCA phono and enjoy a high quality and robust, wireless signal to both speakers – without needing an umbilical cord between them.

Top quality style
Immaculately finished, the Elac Navis ARB-51 looks as good as it sounds. Choose between high gloss black or white for sleek, contemporary style or gloss Ebony Emara for a more traditional look.

Hear just how impressive compact active speakers can sound, with the Elac Navis ARB-51.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb active speakers I bought a pair of these nearly 2 years ago and still loving them today. Feed them a good source and you won’t be disappointed. I’ve used active speakers from AE and Hedd previously, but these suit my ears better - they have a ‘hint’ of warmth that makes listening over extended time periods a joy. Read the glowing on line reviews and take note. Mine are combined with a small, high quality sub - they have high pass filter switches on the back which is brilliant for accommodating a sub. Heard them before purchase at RS Stockport. Great service and a really great speaker!
