    I have seen a reveiw in 'What TV & video' mag. highly rating the Elac 208 front, 207 rear & 201 centre speakers.

    So, wher can I go to hear them, and even more importantly where can I get a good price on them.
    I have tried just about evey HiFi shop on Tottenham Court Road, but most people haven't even heard of Elac.
    I live on the edge of London and Essex, so any retailer close to this area would be great to listen to them, but any web retailer with a good price would be nice.
    Any other suggestions for speakers around £1500 would be gratly appreciated (front, rear and centre and if possible a sub).

    Thanks,
    Mark.

    Thanks for your help mrblue:)

    I have already tried unbeatable. They do sell Elac, but not the series 2.:confused:
    Audio-T looks a good be though, and the Brentwood store is not too far, so I'll give them a shout.

    Thanks again,
    Mark.

    Does anyone else remember the design for DIY speaker enclosures using a single full-range Elac drive unit published in HiFi News magazine many years ago? The quality of the finished unit was quite astonishingly good; my pair did sterling service for me for a very long time.

    The magazine was inundated with requests for details of where to get the driver units; I was lucky - Elac had a factory just round the corner from where I was living at the time.

    Ah, nostalgia. It's not what it was...
