NEW Products


Quad has replaced all models in the excellent L2 dynamic loudspeaker line with the new Classic series. Thus, we now have the 11L Classic monitor at $750, the 12L Classic monitor at $1200, the 23L Classic tower at $2500, the 25L Classic tower at $3400, and the Center L Classic center channel at $650. In addition, Quad has raised the performance level of its new loudspeakers to an even higher level with Signature models of the above series. These are the 11L Classic Signature at $1100, the 12L Classic Signature at $1500, the 23L Classic Signature at $3100, the 25L Classic Signature at $4400, and the Center L Classic Signature at $800. There are also new and updated versions of the electrostatic models, the ESL 2812 at $13,599 and the ESL 2912 at $15,599.

Quad 23L Classic loudspeaker We have been ardent fans of the Quad dynamic loudspeakers since they first came out over a decade ago. This newest Classic series has refined both the sound and cosmetics, giving us models with even better imaging, clarity, smoothness, and bass reach than before. This is especially true of the tower models which, while remaining trim and compact in appearance, use new, downward-firing, passive radiators in place of bass ports to yield deeper and lower distortion low frequencies. Whereas the previous series only had high-gloss finishes, the new Classic series offers both satin finishes at the prices mentioned above as well as optional high-gloss finishes for a modest up charge. The feet (spikes) and bases of the towers have also been enhanced in appearance and are much more striking than before. Of course, all of the wood finishes are real veneers.

Quad 12L Classic Signature loudspeaker The Signature series takes the Classic line to new heights. It maintains the same clean and natural midrange performance alongside a crisp bass but brings the sound to a new level. The Signature models incorporate long-throw, Kevlar cone drivers constructed of self-damping, resin-impregnated fiber. These Kevlar cone drivers have been specially manufactured using proprietary bi-directional Kevlar weave, adding strength to the original structure. The motor system of the L Classic Series' mid-bass driver has been vastly improved in the Signature models and allows for a more linear motion and lower distortion. The tweeter uses a precision-engineered waveguide to integrate the midrange and treble coherently. An advanced, phase-linear crossover combines the drive units, creating a truly holographic stereo image. Cosmetically, the wood veneers are even more exotic than the regular Classic series and are finished in a gorgeous high-gloss finish at no extra charge.
Quad ESL 2912 electrostatic loudspeaker The new electrostatic models have been improved and refined in the areas most leveraged to impress music lovers. The design of the electrostatic panels has been engineered to allow them to play more loudly and provide more bass than in previous models. When you consider that Quad electrostatics are among the few finest loudspeakers in the world in the areas of coherence, spatiality, and detail, allowing them to play more loudly and with a more extended bass truly enhances their performance as an all-around transducer in all important areas. Those who love the accuracy and purity of Quad electrostatics but wanted a more dynamic loudspeaker should find the new models very satisfactory. Quad has also improved the net grille-cloth to make it more transparent and has also enhanced the rigidity of the frame to make it more non-resonant and less likely to color the sound. Finally, high-gloss, wood accents have been added to the frame to enhance cosmetics. One of the world's most highly regarded music reproducers has just gotten better!
