Pros

ELAC Uni-fi UF5 Floorstanding Speaker with the custom designed concentric driver gives you an advantage over the other floorstanding speakers on the market. You have a lot more leeway in how you can play all of your favorite music and movies. You also have a lot more control with how you are able to hear all of the different frequencies and sounds.

This means that you are not going to be limited by the features of the speaker in hearing what you want to hear. This is a lot better when you compare it to the other speakers within its price range which offer a limited capability with the list of their features.

One thing that we love about this speaker unit is that it is a furniture-quality finished speaker. You have something that looks and fits the mold of a lot of the designs for different room themes. This means that you are not going to leave a clutter of equipment in the middle of the room and have to worry about how it looks like to your guests.

You are going to be confident about how it looks so you do not have to stress over if it does not fit the design of the entire room. This high-quality design gives you less to be desired since you are getting the premier design for the speaker with the satin black cabinet finish.

You have a sophisticated crossover and a sophisticated aluminum woofer. These two components are incredibly important if you want to retain the high quality that your sources are going to produce. You have to be able to hear all of your sounds in the manner and quality that the source intends them to be.

This is important since you want to be able to take full advantage of the things that you have bought such as the high def cable and the blu ray discs playing high-quality streams and movie files. You want to be able to hear all of those sounds in high definition without any loss of quality along the way, while still having full control over the volume and frequency of the audio.

Cons

The downfall of this floorstanding speaker is that you might have a few issues if you crank the volume up too much, depending on the frequencies of the sounds that you are playing. Some have said that they had issues with playing songs from different rock albums because of the incredibly high peaks and a different manner of sounds.

This might present an issue to you, especially if you are the type that listens to that genre. This might be better suited for pop and classical tones that are much lighter on the woofer and do not present an immediate dilemma for the sound system.

Conclusion

We are going to give the ELAC Uni-fi UF5 Floorstanding Speaker four stars out of five simply because it is the best speaker out there that can pack a punch considering its price point. You have a lot of features that you can take advantage of, and you are not going to have to worry about the sound quality since that is going to be on par with what they have marketed.

There are some issues if you are going to listen to high paced and high peaked music such as metal rock and similar genres, but if you are someone that wants to use this speaker set for movie watching, TV watching, and some classical sounds, then you are not going to have any issues at all.
