QUAD proudly announce Z Series, our new flagship ribbon loudspeaker range. After taking a new approach to ribbon tweeter design using a unique sandwich formation, an exceptionally robust, high power speaker has been engineered, yet with the delicate sound, conventional ribbon speakers are known for. Z Series is housed beautifully curved piano lacquered cabinets, available in black, white and rosewood.
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 were championed by the hi-fi press. So, the question is, can Quad engineers replicate this performance today, or even surpass it? the answer, not surprisingly, is yes.
