Quad ESL-2912 Electrostatic Speakers

The Quad ESL-2912 Electrostatic Speakers will offer astonishing high-quality sound, whilst remaining stylish in almost any room.

The Quad ESL 2912 Electrostatic Speakers strive to achieve as close to the original song recording as is currently possible. The latest version of ESL series 2912 employs the signature Mylar diaphragm, resulting in an impressive high-quality sound reproduction. Quad’s incredible expertise and knowledge spills over into these speakers, delivering exceptional accuracy with ultra-low distortion, resulting in a loud and clear sound, produced with startling realism.

The ESL 2912 uses six electrostatic panels, making the treble frequencies appear to occur from the centre of speakers, thus improving the bass response. The construction of these electrostatic speakers is a fusion of tensioned aluminium extrusions and a piano gloss wooden trim, exclusively combined to produce this high grade audiophile speaker. The substantial base with rare core transformers and capacitors further improved the speaker by delivering best quality terminations.

Quad’s powerful three layered protection system ensures absolute durability and prevents from damage when overdriven. The ESL 2912 speakers offer true quality control, allowing for a high quality sound reproduction when you play back all of your favourite music. The ESL 2912 not only focusses on the sound convergence, but the newly added wood-veneered panels make these speakers stylish to boot. The gold plated cable terminals along with matched PCB’s and wiring have also been augmented.

The precise engineering of the Quad ESL 2912 speakers helps to reduce the effects of creepage, especially in environments with high humidity. The speakers will maintain consistency in the EHT supply, leading to signal purity in the musical response. The improved dynamics of these electrostatic speakers use a net cloth to cover the speaker elements, allowing superior audio transparency. Paying extra attention to the minute details has allowed Quad to create a pair of speaker that will produce an astonishingly indistinguishable sound, making the Quad ESL 2912 Electrostatic Speakers some of the most original and iconic Quad speakers to date.
