The ELAC 3D-13 is a fully active loudspeaker that is a modern solution for stereo listening from a single compact enclosure, replacing the more conventional pair of hi-fi stereo loudspeakers and amplifier.

They hang on the wall and look like normal pictures but they are hi-fi loudspeakers and the bonus is that you decide what they will look like – a Monet, a Duret, a Lombarte, or a Van Gogh. For stereo listening, all you have to do is connect two ELAC flat panel speakers and the matching subwoofer to your hi-fi. For home theatre systems, two, three or four of the five speakers can be easily integrated into every living-room environment. Read More
