ELAC and Adsum Announce Powered Speaker Collaboration.

ELAC Adsum Collaboration

ELAC is excited to announce a partnership with the Brooklyn-based fashion label ADSUM, culminating in the creation of a special edition for the acclaimed Debut ConneX bookshelf speakers. This ELAC Adsum collaboration infuses the Debut ConneX with a unique blend of minimalist design and high-fidelity audio. The result is a set of bookshelf speakers that offer the straightforward functionality and convenience of a soundbar while delivering the superior sound quality and visual appeal expected from top-tier powered speakers.

“ELAC and ADSUM’s partnership melds advanced audio engineering with urban streetwear aesthetics, setting new standards for style and acoustics,” stated Joe Riggi, CEO of ELAC Americas Inc.

The collaboration between Adsum and ELAC transcends mere cosmetic changes; it represents a comprehensive redesign. Adsum spearheaded the transformation, introducing an exclusive tubular metal stand and magnetic detachable grilles. The design overhaul also features a modernized aesthetic with squared-off edges, freshly painted cabinets, and a bespoke remote control, complemented by custom-colored cables to complete the distinctive look.

The Debut ConneX were designed to be the ultimate audio companion for the space-conscious city dweller. Its array of inputs makes it adaptable for everything from cinematic viewing and video gaming to DJing and hosting last-minute gatherings. Compact enough to blend into any space, yet powerful enough to fill your apartment with rich, neighbor-rousing sound, it’s the ideal speaker set for the city lifestyle.
