DS-A101 integrated amp with Speaker matching and room EQ
This integrated amplifier marks ELAC’s return to the amplifier category. The EA Series EA101EQ-G Integrated Amplifier solves two of the biggest problems with two-channel audio: proper blending of a subwoofer with your main speakers and room correction. Our advanced DSP allows for speaker/subwoofer active biamplification with perfect sub/main speaker blending and innovative smartphone application provide all the tools necessary for anyone to achieve a true audiophile system at an affordable price.
The EA101EQ-G makes quite a statement and is guaranteed to change the rules of the game for integrated amplifiers, with sound quality and feature-rich control flexibility that make it the go-to solution for a no-compromise sound system. Once you experience what it can do—especially with the new Debut, Uni-Fi, or Line 240.3 loudspeakers—your world of sound just might be altered forever.
The EQ10 has a quality DAC with USB, optical and coaxial inputs. It can also decode Dolby Digital signals for great 2.1 AV systems. It has a good headphone amp and APT x control as well as a subwoofer out.

Discovery DS101G multi-zone server with Roon
Adding the Discovery Series DS-S101-G Music Server to an existing system is simple. Connect the Discovery to the internet and one of the outputs to the ELAC Integrated Amplifier or your existing system.
Adding your personal music collection is a snap. Connect either a hard drive to the rear mounted USB port or point the Discovery to your NAS (Networked Attached Storage) device and the Discovery will take care of the rest, organizing and gathering feature rich meta-data for your entire music collection.
Expanding your Discovery system to other rooms is easy. Whether you want the full functionality of an integrated amplifier or a simple wireless speaker in the kids’ room, the Discovery eco-system is ready to grow when you are.
* iOS (64-bit Devices), Android, Windows (7, 8, and 10) and Apple OSXThe DS-S101 comes with a lifetime subscription to Roon Basic with control of up to 30,000 cuts of your favorite music. It has its own internal DAC or can run into your outboard DAC.
In the Sound & Vision review they said:
Elac’s Discovery DS-S101 has no internal storage so it’s not a server in the classic sense. It’s an awesome music-management system with a high-performance digital-to-analog converter (DAC) to ensure the best possible sound quality. But what makes it special — and worthy of Top Pick status — is its use of the acclaimed music library and discovery platform from Roon Labs, which, among other things, integrates with Tidal’s high-quality streaming service so your Tidal library shows up as part of your larger collection. As reviewer Al Griffin put it, “Discovery’s compact form and minimalist design allow it to be integrated unobtrusively with an existing hi-fi rig.”
