However, now seeing Elac’s whole catalog, I am a bit confused. The BS263 is very similar priced to the BS244.3 and BS312 and their specs: BS244.3 – Lower series? – Nominal/peak power handling: 80/120 wpc – Frequency response: 38 to 50,000 Hz – Size: 330x200x282mm (HxWxD) BS263 – Nominal/peak power handling: 60/80 wpc – Frequency response: 41 to 50,000 Hz – Size: 285x195x285mm (HxWxD) BS312: – Higher series? – Nominal/peak power handling: 70/100 wpc – Frequency response: 42 to 50,000 Hz – Size: 208x12x282mm (HxWxD) So the BS312 is the most compact, and the BS244.3 is the biggest. The BS244.3 has a lower bass (it also has a bigger woofer than the other two: 180mm vs 150mm) and apparently more power. My question is: sound quality alone, how do you rank those three speakers?
