Quad S-1 Bookshelf Loudspeakers

Quad's S Series of loudspeaker models are an embodiment of the company's commitment to bringing the listener as close to the performance as possible. Featuring new ribbon design tweeter units, advanced Kevlar bass/midrange drivers and a sophisticated crossover, each S series speaker is able to offer a detailed and dynamic performance to suit your room requirements and budget. 

The S-1 is one of two stand-mount models in the S series and features a high-quality 100mm bass/midrange driver built from Kevlar. The Kevlar material allows for an extremely rigid cone, that is both firms yet light, allowing it to push vast amounts of an hour while also responding quickly. This cone works hand-in-hand with the S-1's Quad-specific ribbon tweeter design. Quad has been using ribbon tweeters in their loudspeaker models for a long time, the first one being the 'Corner Ribbon' which was first used in 1949. the S-1's tweeter is considerably more advanced than this though and uses a sandwich construction design. This makes it far more robust and easily matched with high powered amplifiers.
