Miracord 90 Anniversary - ELAC resurrects a golden era with a turntable to mark its 90th birthday. Ninety is the new thirty, as we say at ELAC, and we are celebrating the occasion by saluting the early decades of the company‘s history when our turntables reigned supreme. Memories of those times live
on, and not just within our factory walls in Kiel:
Dealers and customers have constantly asked when the ELAC loudspeaker family will finally include turntables again. Vinyl is popular among audiophiles and ELAC Miracord remains an iconic name from the era of the long-playing disc. The ELAC Miracord 90 Anniversary draws on this legacy and sets the highest standards in terms of sound, workmanship, and mechanical precision. It is designed to deliver what customers have come to expect from our speakers: a clever concept, flawlessly executed with superlative engineering, exquisite workmanship, and the finest materials. The 5.5 kilogram MDF chassis rests on specially developed silicone feet that decouple the deck completely from the surface on which it is placed. The aluminum platter weighs 6.2 kilograms and sits on a sub-platter whose hardened steel axis rotates on a ruby ball that minimizes friction.
The axis is mounted using high-quality sintered bronze bearing bushings. The motor is double-decoupled from the chassis and, therefore, from the tonearm. Along with the rubber damping, the suspensions employed here use materials that have proven themselves in ELAC speakers. The newly developed tonearm made of carbon-fiber is a perfect match for the drive mechanism. The pickup with its MicroLine® stylus was developedspecifically for ELAC in cooperation with audio-technica® and comes as standard with eachmodel.
The Miracord 90 Anniversary proves that the tradition of turntable design is very muchalive in Kiel. Especially since we were able to draw on the expertise of engineers from the golden era of the Miracord. We also understand what vinyl fans are looking for. By revisiting the legendary chapter in our history, we are clearly signaling what the market can expect from us in the near future: an expanded product range and, above all, a fascinating addition to the ELAC brand.
