Quad ESL 2805 Electrostatic Loudspeakers

Sorry, This product is no longer available



The new ESL-2805 and ESL-2905 loudspeakers are Quad's latest reference loudspeakers and like their predecessors should be regarded amongst the finest loudspeakers in the world today. In areas such as transparency, and lack of colouration, they are without peer. Quad ESLs can create a window on the recording - every nuance and subtle detail preserved and reproduced with unerring accuracy. Perhaps their most striking ability is to create a holographic soundstage - in which each voice and instrument occupies a precise location and is easily discernable within even complex pieces. Quad\'s patented panel technology results in a combination of the speed and accuracy only possible from an electrostatic loudspeaker; together with the imaging and soundstaging only possible from a theoretically ideal point source; and the coherence and continuity of a single drive unit. With possibly the lowest distortion of any loudspeaker, the ESL can be enjoyed for hours on end without fatigue; never adding or subtracting from the original recording. Even at low volume levels, they retain the full detail and drama of the music.
