QUAD ESL-2912 Electrostatic speaker

Quad ESL-2912 electrostatic loudspeakers are Quad's flagship model and replace the ESL-2905, the latest in a long line of well respected speakers that Quad are best known for, back to the original ESL-57 that made its debut back in 1956. Improvements over their predecessor include a better power supply, new acoustically transparent grille and wood finish on the top and sides of the bases. We're pleased to say the flagship ESL-2912 improve on the outgoing model where it really counts, sounding even more unbelievable as a result and creating their trademark holographic soundstaging beautifully.

In contrast to the ESL-2812, the ESL-2912 uses six rather than four electrostatic panels, the inner two utilising the concentric rings of anodes used to create the point source image. Whilst all electrodes receive the same music signal, each electrode area reacts slightly differently, such that treble frequencies appear to come from the centre of the speaker.

Construction is a combination of tensioned aluminum extrusions coupled to stainless steel support structures, with a piano gloss wooden trim. The substantial base construction is finished with piano gloss side cheeks and high-quality terminations. Internally, the highest quality components are used, including rare core transformers and high-grade audiophile capacitors. Three types of protection system are used to ensure the speakers are difficult to damage when over driven.
