Details:
Quad is delighted to announce the launch of the Quad 11L Classic bookshelf speakers, the latest version of the company's longstanding and critically acclaimed 11L compact loudspeaker. In terms of both sound quality and value for money, the 11L Classic improves upon the original, trailblazing 11L - released in 2002 and described as "phenomenal" by What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision magazine - and its highly regarded successor, the 11L2. It retains the same compact cabinet size, standing 31cm high, 19cm wide and 24cm deep, but broadens the finish options to deliver an even greater competitive advantage.
In addition to their sonic performance, both the Quad 11L Classic's predecessors earned high praise for the quality of their cabinet finish: real-wood veneers smothered in high-gloss, hand-polished lacquer that set new standards for speakers at the price (just £380 per pair). The new 11L Classic is available in the same sumptuous lacquered finish, but now Quad is also giving the option of classic, non-lacquered wood veneers, reducing the price by £50 in the process.
The Quad 11L Classic's 25mm fabric dome tweeter has also been upgraded, its housing forming a shallow 'horn' or 'waveguide' affixed to the front baffle. This controls the dispersion of the dome to mimic that of the midrange cone through the crossover region. As a result, the crossover becomes almost inaudible in the overlap between the drive units, yielding a coherent, detailed and remarkably lifelike midrange performance in a similar manner to the coherence heard from electrostatic panels.
The Quad 11L's crossover has itself been significantly enhanced. A sophisticated yet electrically simple network, it is integrated for both phase and frequency through several octaves either side of the crossover point. The handover of frequencies between the tweeter and mid/bass drive unit is seamless, whilst the maintenance of phase allows a deep and broad soundstage to be created between and around the speakers.
Twin reflex ports are located at the back of the cabinet, augmenting the speaker's bass response and enabling a physical crossover to the bass unit at 68Hz. The ports are placed on the rear panel to baffle any effects of airflow distortion and midrange leakage. The use of two ports reduces the velocity of the airflow, enabling the speakers to be placed close to a rear wall without acoustic problems arising.
The Quad 11L Classic follows in the tradition of small, monitor-class loudspeakers originally pioneered by the legendary BBC LS3/5a in the mid-1970s. This precedent set new standards for accuracy and midband definition when it was first introduced and is still held in high regard by audiophiles today.
Though clearly benefitting from the latest manufacturing techniques and component technologies, the 11L Classic might be considered the LS3/5a's natural heir. A small monitor loudspeaker has distinct advantages, not only for near-field monitoring, but also for music reproduction in the home. The use of a relatively small mid/bass driver aids integration with the treble unit, delivering an accurate power response both on the forward axis and in the room. As a result, the 11L Classic yields an expansive stereo soundstage that belies the size of the speaker itself, with a wonderfully coherent midband that gives lifelike reproduction of vocals and instruments.
Externally, the 11L Classic is finished to a level befitting high-class furniture, with wood veneers especially chosen for their grain structure, then laid and polished by hand. That alone is rare at the price, but the addition of a deep, lustrous, multi-layer lacquered finish is truly exceptional.
