Quad 11L is Best Stereo Speakers of the Year 2004 from What Hi-Fi?

The Quad

L-Series

The QUAD 11L

The 11L is the entry point for the series, with a single five inch KEVLAR bass/mid driver and a 25mm textile dome tweeter. Despite its diminutive size, the 11L boasts some of the finest top to bottom cohesion you will ever find in a stand mount speaker and is accurate and smooth through the mid-range in true Quad style. Careful placement will extend the bass response significantly, giving this speaker a performance well beyond the scale of its dimensions – yet throughout the frequency range this speaker is articulate and musical for a thoroughly refined and enjoyable listen.

The QUAD 12L

The cabinet volume and drive unit size are slightly larger than the 11L to produce a wider frequency response in the bass region. A 6.5" KEVLAR bass/mid

driver replaces the 5" unit. In most other respects,

they are similar to the 11L. Elegant and simple, the uncluttered design has a remarkable dynamic range for such a small speaker – a consequence of the accuracy and speed of the long-throw driver under pressure.

Hi-Fi World

The Quad 11L shown is one of our ‘Collectors Editions’ - limited runs of only 500 pairs in an exotic veneer - in this case, Ebony.

“These [11L] Quads have that extra touch of monitor-like finesse that brings them out of the midprice bracket and into the

upper echelons of audiophilia.”

– What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision

“Not only do they come in a beautiful real-wood veneer with a piano gloss lacquer, but they sound terrific too. The scale and authority of their performance is breathtaking”

The QUAD 21L

The 21L is a loudspeaker which is simple and elegant in design, yet remarkable in performance. As well as negating the need for stands, the 21L gives an extended bass response over the standmount versions, yet retains all the precision, detail and imaging capabilities of its smaller brethren.

The lustrous piano finish is applied to each speaker by hand over a period of seven days, each of which involves applying a coat of lacquer which must then dry at an ambient temperature before being cut and polished. The final coat is polished to a high gloss finish to produce one of the finest finishes seen on any loudspeaker in this class.

The QUAD 22L

The 22L is the flagship of the range. This tall, floorstanding model with ultra low distortion twin KEVLAR drivers produces a fast, dynamic bass, extending to around 30Hz at the lower end for real impact and a compelling sense of scale. Bass detail is excellent, tracking precisely every nuance of the deepest double bass while, maintaining an area of open space around instruments.

The QUAD L Centre

For the first time ever, Quad is producing a centre channel speaker within the ‘L’ series. That is not to abandon our hi-fi roots, but to enable those with good multi-channel systems to enjoy the ‘L’ series in all its glory – the ‘L’ centre is tonally and frequency matched to produce an exceptional surround sound speaker system capable of reproducing not only film sound-tracks with spectacular clarity and precision, but also of reproducing the growing number of multichannel music formats.
