The new Quad ESL-2805 Electrostatics 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, the Quad ESL 2805 are without peer. It should be noted that whilst moving-coil loudspeakers are the norm, the physical principles upon which they work are fatally flawed - and not even the latest advances in materials science can address their shortcomings. Quad alone has sought a different path - to push the boundaries of electrostatic technology to the point where the Quad ESL 2805 are closer to the ideal loudspeaker than any other.

In short, the Quad ESL technology is unique in its clarity of sound, lack of distortion, lack of interference and continuity of response. The Quad ESL 2805 Electrostatic loudspeakers are the absolute pinnacle of that technology. Engineered without compromise, they are destined to become modern classics.

The Quad ESL-2805 is the smaller of the two models using six panels rather than the 8 of the larger model. The inner two panels of the Quad ESL-2805s construction again utilise the concentric anode rings for point source imaging, and the outer rings are again linear in their response. Whilst absolute bass extension and dynamic ability is less than it larger brother, the Quad ESL-2805 offers a sublime performance.

The clarity of mid-range for which the Quad are most famed is fully in evidence, as is the sparkling detail and transparency that has long been the hallmark of this series. Their response characteristics are virtually identical and a base weight of 34.8kg together with the rigid bracing ensures they are suitably deep in bass and dynamic enough to fill all but the largest of listening rooms. For the Quad aficionado without the need or desire for the additional bass extension of the larger model this, the smaller of the Quad ESLs is still regarded as the pinnacle of electrostatic refinement.
