SOUND & VISION Festival - Quad

What can you expect to see from Quad at the upcoming SOUND & VISION Festival at AudioTrends, Melbourne May 29th - 31st?

In STUDIO 1 of the Sound & Vision Festival, QUAD will demonstrate some of its newest and best known products.

Quad was the first company to develop and market an electrostatic speaker, the ESL57. That speaker is still regarded as one of the most important speaker products of the 20th century, and as a result the ESL Series has become the world’s most famous and respected electrostatic speaker.

Its latest model; the ESL2912, is synonymous with Quad’s slogan “The closest approach to the original sound”.

In keeping with this ethos the latest incarnation of Quad’s famous ESL design is simply something that must be experienced by any true audiophile.

At the heart of the system in Studio 1 will be the Quad ESL2912 electrostatic speakers, driven by Quad’s famous II-Eighty mono-block valve amplifiers, and Platinum Reference Pre-Amplifier.

Connections throughout the system need to be of the same calibre as the electronics, which end this system will be using QED Signature series interconnects and speaker cable, including the new Signature Audio 40 cryogenically treated interconnects.

Along with the reference system Quad will also be unveiling its latest traditional speaker design, the S Series in which for the first time ever, Quad makes use of a Ribbon Tweeter in its speakers. The model to be auditioned in Studio 1 at the Sound & Vision Festival will be the flagship floor standing model, the S-5 which will be powered by Quad Elite Series Electronics.

Connecting the system will be the award winning QED Reference Audio 40 interconnects and XT-40 speaker cable (voted speaker cable of the year in the What Hi Fi 2014 Awards).
