Quad has unveiled details of its latest speaker range, the S Series. Consisting of five new models (two floorstanders, two standmounts and a centre for home cinema use), the S Series features advanced Kevlar-coned mid/bass drivers and a specially designed ribbon tweeter to supply what Quad describes as “effortless sonic expression to capture all the nuances and passion of the original performance”.
The £600 S-1 is a two-way standmount with the new 12 x 45mm True Ribbon tweeter, 100mm woven Kevlar midrange and a reflex port. It claims sensitivity of 84dB. The £800 S-2 ups the midrange driver to 125mm and the sensitivity to 87dB. The S-4 is a three-way floorstander with the same drivers as the S-1, plus a pair of 125mm woven Kevlar bass drivers. It costs £1,300 and has 88dB claimed sensitivity. Finally, the £1,600 S-5 combines the tweeter and mid drivers of the S-2 with a pair of 165mm bass drivers. It boasts a claimed sensitivity of 90dB.
