Quad S-5 Floorstanding Speakers (Pair)
Quad has always prided itself as providing the complete solution to music lovers Each Quad component marries perfectly to other parts of the hi-fi system and is designed with one target to be: The Closest Approach To The Original Sound”
The S Series ribbon tweeter is the product of today’s advanced technology. The ribbon itself is a sandwich construction, making it robust enough to handle high powered amplifiers, and is fully immersed in a powerful magnetic field so that it accomplishes its dual role of being both the ‘voice coil’ and the sound radiator.
As well as delivering excellent transient response and superb musical detail, the sound from this ribbon is smooth right up to the highest musical overtones beyond the limits of human hearing. Controlled directivity maintains this sound quality over a wide horizontal arc to cover all listeners whilst vertical dispersion is tailored to avoid floor and ceiling reflections resulting in the purest high-frequency performance at the listening seat.
ABR Bass Extention
Similar purity is available from the woven Kevlar coned bass-midrange units supported, in the floor standing speakers, by bass units that extend the response down to reach the fundamentals of orchestral instruments thanks to multiple ABRS on the cabinets rear panel.
Whatever your musical taste you will find that Quad S Series speakers create a believable musical presence in your listening room that will have you discovering your music collection anew
