ELAC takes its inspiration for the new Vela range from the sea and the cosmos.

The new series built to replace ELAC's 400 range of models was named in honour of the constellation Vela and the plural form of the Latin word for sail.

But however it’s spun, ELAC’s message is clear: buy a Vela speaker, and you’ll arrive at your audio destination.

ELAC's exhibition space at this year's High End show in Munich, Germany is bound to be busy.

Along with the Vela, ELAC will show the Argo active speakers, again stressing the maritime theme for its new models.

Argo, it will be recalled was the famous vessel that Greek mythological hero Jason and his crew sailed in search of the Golden Fleece.

ELAC says it’s embracing speakers with built-in amplifiers because actives blend well with modern living environments according to ELAC engineers.

Visitors to the stand will also hear the Concentro M, a smaller version of the Concentro model.

The Concentro M features every technical refinement ever invented by ELAC's designers. The Concentro M is half the weight and half the price of its bigger sibling.

New turntables will also be displayed in Munich. Called the ELAC Miracord 70 and Miracord 50, the new vinyl spinners were developed to celebrate ELAC’s past achievements in audio.

Plenty to see and hear from ELAC at this year's show. Stay tuned for more in our rolling coverage from the High End Show in Munich.
