Elemental Designs A6-6T6 speakers only cost $500 a pair. This sounds like either crazy Internet pricing or white van material. At this price point, there is only so much you can do and eD has moved that bar quite high. The imaging of the A6's is really their strong point. I'm tempted to make grandiose claims about the imaging but I won't. If you're on a budget and or perhaps looking for your first pair of speakers, you could do a lot worse than the A6-6T6s.

Why do they claim Frequency Response 40-22KHz +/- 3dB if it's actually more like -12dB in the low end?
Is this discrepancy only found in their speakers or are their powered subs also listed incorrectly where frequency response is concerned?

Very informative review. I have been a fan of Elemental Designs stuff for a long time and always enjoy reading non-biased reviews.
How would you say these compare to the winner of your "Speaker Face Off I - Battle of the Budget Towers" article, the Pinnacle Classic Gold Reference?
I have a co-worker who is looking into setting up a decent HT system and I have been steering him towards the A6-6T6's simply because of the price/performance ratio, but he is open to other suggestions as well.
I don't think that's a fair comparison considering that the Pinnacle's are now discontinued and also retailed for nearly double the price. The Pinnacle's had a much better tweeter and better executed crossover design. The also had superior bass extension to the eD's.How would you say these compare to the winner of your "Speaker Face Off I - Battle of the Budget Towers" article, the Pinnacle Classic Gold Reference?
Tom will be reviewing some towers from tSc which look very interesting. He will be doing a direct compare between them and the eD speakers so stay tuned.
