Quad - Tower Speakers (Pair)

Glance at the Quad S-5 and you'll notice the elegant spiked outriggers that bolt onto a metal base and give the tower loudspeaker optimal stability. Indeed, something about these speakers, available for a veritable steal at nearly $800 off list price, suggests that they require the pro-grade support or they'd start walking toward you. Such is the degree of power, punch, and impact with which these 55.8-pound floorstanders play music. Of course, you'll also get an idea of just how gorgeous they look. Graced with Italian-inspired rounded top edges at the front and rear, each tall, slim cabinet is comprised of alternate layers of MDF and high-density particleboard with circumferential internal bracing that reduces panel resonance below the threshold of human hearing.

That's just the beginning of a unit that Ken Kessler of Hi-Fi News says "delivers so much bang for the buck that I had to double-check the price." Designed in England and claiming a heritage that stretches back to the company's iconic Corner Ribbon loudspeaker, S-5 features a 1.75 x 0.5-inch true ribbon tweeter that ably handles modern high-power amplifiers while also retaining Quad's trademark detail, accuracy, and smoothness. And since the composite ribbon sandwich substrate tweeter functions as both the diaphragm and motor system – completely unlike conventional dome units – you'll benefit from off-the-charts levels of efficiency, control, and transparency.

Whether you want to experience the crescendo of an orchestral piece, the interplay of a jazz trio, or attack of a rock band, S-5 remains composed, finessed, and clean with all types of music. A sophisticated crossover network handles the virtually seamless handoff between the tweeter, four-inch woven Kevlar midrange driver, and pair of 6.5-inch woven Kevlar woofers. To ensure superb low-end scale, stability, clarity, and depth, the drivers pair with large auxiliary bass radiators (ABRs). All you need to do is position S-5 at least a foot from the wall and you'll hear what they have to offer – fatigue-free performance, beguiling coherency, and pinpoint imaging included.
