It was way back in the mono days of 1949 that Quad launched its first loudspeaker, the Corner Ribbon. This was, indeed, a prestige product, but it offered something special, a particularly clear and detailed upper mid-range to treble performance from a large and delicate ribbon driver.
The naturalness and fidelity of sound reproduction of the original corner ribbon was championed by the hi-fi press. Both the S Series and flagship Z Series both have bought influence from this classic speaker, in two new modern speaker ranges taking the delicate and beautiful sound in a more powerful and modern loudspeaker.
Beautifully presented with rounded top edges at the front and rear, each speaker cabinet uses a sandwich construction of alternate layers of MDF and high-density particleboard to reduce panel resonance to below the level of audibility.
Aesthetically, the look is classically Quad, yet subtly updated, available initially in black or sapele mahogany wood veneers. These will be joined in the autumn by premium, hand-laquered piano white and piano black finish options.
