But that’s not the most noteworthy thing about these speakers’ performance with this song. Unsurprisingly, Michael’s inimitable vocals take centerstage, ringing through with such authentic timbres that at one point I actually looked behind the speakers to make sure I hadn’t accidentally left the cables connected to the pair of Paradigm Studio 100 towers sitting to either side of the ELACs.

This is a heavily reverberant track, and as such speakers with less-than-stellar transient response can deliver the vocals as a sort of wide blanket of wet sound. Through the ELACs, Michael’s voice still undeniably emanates from a weighty center of mass between the speakers, but the waves and echoes that follow flow from wall-to-wall, like ripples ebbing outward from a pebble tossed into a pond. Even with the overdubbed backup vocals kick in–“And I’ll go where I’ve longed/To go, so long…”–and the mix spreads to fill the stereo soundstage out past the limits of the speakers themselves, you can still undeniably close your eyes and point to Michael’s lead vocals in the mix.”
