Elac Carina BS243.4 loudspeaker Review
January 3, 2020 § Leave a comment
“I had high hopes for the Carina BS243.4 with Schiit’s new $799 Aegir power amplifier. If this combo could play demonstration-quality recordings with demonstration-quality sound, a better place.
I already knew the Elacs could do elegant and refined, but there remained in my mind some X-factor, some sonic issue I was not quite noticing. I felt this because, while I listened, my brain kept scanning the soundfield for anomalies, trying to decide whether the BS243.4s can focus and image with sufficient precision. I realized that, despite the Elacs’ good dispersion—or perhaps because of it—toe-in was working like the focus ring on a camera lens. But unfortunately, at this point in the review, my brain could not decide when the best focus had been achieved.”
