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’.

Quad S Series loudspeakers fulfil that objective admirably. Sporting a new ribbon treble unit aligned, through sophisticated crossover networks, to Quad’s advanced bass-midrange drivers, each and every loudspeaker in the range delivers all the nuances and passion of the original performance.


Where It All Started


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 new 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.
