    Elac Debut Reference DBR-62 Speaker Review

    If you've had a chance to listen in the exact same setting with all else being equal, what aspect of the sound was altered using tubes vs a solid state amp/preamp?

    Yet another Elac Debut reference thread!

    Nearly 4 months after starting this thread (and about 6 months of owning the 62s) I have gotten accustomed to their sound signature & absolutely love them! I added no sub (as integration is too much effort in my case) or any new gear. While I did experiment with some of the very nice PEQs on...

    Elac Debut Reference DBR-62 Speaker Review

    I even had the chance to listen to my pair on a lowly Marantz PM5005 and they still sounded amazing in an untreated room with no sub. I just love these speakers.

    Elac Debut Reference DBR-62 Speaker Review

    After spending a few days with this eq I'm really enjoying the small but noticeable difference especially for lower volume listening. Subjective impressions (not measured with umik) as follows: - Highs are ever so slightly "crisper" without being harsh - The mids are brought forward a tad bit -...

    To answer my own question - audibly there should be no "improvement" of using the dual mono HPA vs the stereo MPA so may as well save some dough if I do down this route. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/ncore-dual-mono-or-stereo.9755/

    Even though I don't really need a new amp for my Elac Dbr 62s I'm still considering the MPA-S250NC out of sheer curiosity to try out a Hypex class D which would replace my custom built class AB dual mono power amp rated at 200 wpc @ 8ohms. Question: Will the HPA (dual mono) of the same product...

    It takes a whole lot of courage to admit to oneself about pre-conceived notions/impressions on things. Even more so to do it openly on a forum. Respect.

    Yet another Elac Debut reference thread!

    As a follow up to my own question, some very helpful suggestions and further experimentation: - Perceived lack of dynamics at low volumes, say <60db may be attributed to the Fletcher Munson curve - This slight dullness at low volumes is in the nature of "flatter/more neutral" speakers like the...

    Elac Debut Reference DBR-62 Speaker Review

    Thanks, I've seen this one tagged earlier as well and have tried it. Just wondering then if there is no way to equate the higher Q factor peq from APO to something more limited like in moode (0-8)?

    Elac Debut Reference DBR-62 Speaker Review

    Thanks for sharing. I'm really enjoying my 62s and now starting to experiment with eq. Can someone please explain how to translate these filters from apo to something that moode offers where Q range is 0-8 please? And what should overall gain be set at to avoid clipping?

    Some good points. I've spent a lot of time and effort in optimizing placement so I believe I have that covered. I'm working on the peq option and will report back.

    Yet another Elac Debut reference thread!

    Would the q-values here refer to a scale of 0-10? e.g. Filter 1: ON PK Fc 173 Hz Gain -1.30 dB Q 1.69 Asking as Moode for instance does q from 0-8 (in which case i'd have to re-calculate if I'm not mistaken?)

    Yet another Elac Debut reference thread!

    Thanks all for the responses so far. 1) Sub - I've had several other similarly sized speakers from Wharfedale, Monitor Audio etc in the same room. Never felt them lacking even at lower volumes and in fact have used them in much larger rooms as well. This is still a maybe for me especially...

    Yet another Elac Debut reference thread!

    Hi all - noob here and this is my first thread on ASR so please be gentle :) Mods, if this needs to be merged with another thread please fire away. So, after all the research I took the DBR 62 plunge. These are setup in my partially treated living room which measures about 12X20 feet with a 9ft...

    Elac Debut Reference DBR-62 Speaker Review

    Interestingly (apart from a bit of Jazz) I listen to literally every genre apart from what you're into :) Yeah, I recall someone else on the forum saying they have literally stopped bothering with reviewing anything else after owning the 62s and I'm probably gonna be in the same camp - but oh...
