Gold Sound QUAD Page
     QUAD is one of the world's oldest & most respected high end audio companies. Quad  began in England over 80 years ago. Quad electrostatic speakers are a world-class reference standard.
      Editors of STEREOPHILE, ABSOLUTE SOUND & many European magazines own Quad. STEREOPHILE's Editor At Large Art Dudley has Quad electrostatic speakers in his living room system. ABSOLUTE SOUND ranks a Quad ESL as the most significant speaker ever made. "For top-to-bottom clarity, coherence, transparency, resolution, openness, naturalness & a disappearing act that still inspires awe, the ESL established & remains to this day a reference standard across the globe. It tops virtually every list of the best, the greatest, the most significant audio products ever made. What made it an overnight sensation was its seamlessness, quite low coloration & incredibly low distortion." 
     ABSOLUTE SOUND chose a 
Quad as one of the four most historically significant solid state preamps ever made. "Like its companion power amp, it was the first solid-state product of its kind to sound really good: I know, I still own one & use it happily." 
     Whenever magazines have published lists of the most important products, Quad is always on everyone's "top 10" lists. Only Quad is recognized for totally different technologies, including speakers, tube amps & solid-state amps. Most of Quad's competitors never appear on the lists of most important products ever made.  
      Quad has always been known for great value. Customers have chosen Quad speakers after comparing them with more expensive models from B&W, Boston, Canton, Dali, Dynaudio, Harbeth, JBL, KEF Reference, Klipsch, Paradigm, PSB, Sonus Faber, Spendor, Thiele & many more. Every time, customers have preferred Quad speakers. A recent Quad customer is the owner of a competing audio store, who decided that Quad is the best speaker for his own personal use. 
      "In their factory, the designer is virtually omnipotent. He doesn't use any off-the-shelf parts, or wait 6 months to have a part custom-made. Instead, the on-site tool & die shop makes parts & he can redesign them as often as he wants. This gives him power over every part in a Quad & lets him stuff products with high quality parts at a fraction of what it costs elsewhere. This means you get better sound, because Quad's designers have long pedigrees & good ears. It also means you get unbeatable value." HOME THEATER 
Some competing companies spend more on an amplifier's face plate than the entire cost of a Quad amp. Quad amps usually sound better than those for several times its price. 

Customer comments on Quad include:
"Deeper bass; more three dimensional imaging"
Sounds as good as my B&W speakers for five times more."
"A piano just sounds more like a piano."
"It's just a nicer speaker." 

      A recording engineer thought our system with Quad electrostatics sounded better than others that cost over ten times more, or over $200,000. People often think Quad speakers should cost ten times more, since they sound so much better than more expensive speakers.
