Stylish speakers for your entertainment system

The Debut ConneX Adsum powered stereo speakers feature a compact and elegant design and connections for a wide range of sources in your entertainment center. Technically, they're identical to the Debut Connex DCB41, but this version includes stylish stands and cosmetic design from celebrated Brooklyn clothiers Adsum. Each speaker gets a solid 50 watts, thanks to an amplifier built into one speaker, and there's Bluetooth on board for music streaming convenience.

Connections for your components

These speakers take up very little space but put out big sound that can fill small to medium-sized rooms.

There's an HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) input for connecting a compatible TV. You can connect a computer to the Type-B USB port, and there's a digital optical input for a gaming console or CD player. For vinyl lover like me, there's a switchable built-in phono preamp for the stereo RCA input. And you can connect a powered subwoofer (sold separately) for more impactful bass.

My hands-on experience with ELAC Debut ConneX Adsum powered speakers

I set these nice-looking speakers on either side of my Sony OLED TV to see if they might be a better sound solution than my older Polk Audio sound bar. My wife can sometimes be a hard sell when it comes to speaker cosmetics, and she loved Adsum's timeless modern look.

I heard sweet two-channel sound that was as full or fuller than what I got from my old sound bar and its wireless subwoofer. And since I connected the speaker system via HDMI ARC, the TV recognized it automatically. After setting the audio output to PCM and changing a couple other settings I was able to control their volume with the TV's remote. I love single-remote simplicity, and this came easy.

These speakers are great for TV sound, but I kept noticing other spaces in our house where they'd be a natural-looking and -sounding fit for stereo music.
