PLATINUM M20

The PLATINUM M20 is outstanding for its superb musical performance whilst requiring a minimum of space. It goes without saying that its compact dimensions mean less deepdown bass response than the larger units in the family, but this is certainly a PLATINUM in every other way. Just like its sister units, this speaker impresses across the board with crisp bass runs, natural-sounding voices and finely detailed trebles. The PLATINUM M20s slender design makes it feels at home on a bookshelf. PLATINUM M20 is the practical loudspeaker for hi-fi stereo and home cinema sound.

PLATINUM SURROUND + PHASE A10

Sound from all sides!

Large multi-channel test at AREA DVD: 10 quadral loudspeakers lined up to create the perfect surround sound. In detail: 2x quadral PLATINUM M40, 2x PLATINUM M20, 1x PLATINUM M10 BASE, 1x QUBE 12 and 4x the new effect-stage PHASE A10. Together, the ensemble won the title "price class reference". The bottom line of the test project: multi-channel experts from Hanover: The Quadral 5.1.4-set pleased us in the test with a far above-average performance. The spatial effect with four tower modules is gigantic; one feels enveloped by all sides and in all dimensions of sound. The quadral ensemble converts very well, what “immersive sound” wants to achieve. All components are level-resistant. The QUBE 12 active subwoofer impresses furthermore with its impressive design. The built-in output stage with a full 500 watt sine-wave power fits into the first-class overall picture of this multi-channel system. Thanks to the RiCom V tweeter, the Platinum components included in the set, play up to 50 kHz, making them ideal for high-definition audio media. The processing is excellent, even in the detail we do not find any defects. The top firing modules, phase A10, however, are technically - with a broadband chassis - very simple. Here the competition (KEF, ELAC TS3030) puts in more effort. With the 5.1.4 set of Platinum M, Phase A10 and QUBE12, quadral delivers an impressive statement for modern multi-channel sound"

Result: Price class reference (multi-channel loudspeaker sets upper class), the test of 18.11.2016 is available  here

PLATINUM M20

"Test conclusion: Quadral Platinum M20

Taking into consideration the small size of the M20 as well as the amount that the price on the label has dropped to, I have to say that I am really impressed. With regard to the bass reproduction, the dash of warmth and the overall, truly vibrant tuning as well as the relatively wide design, this small Quadral easily sounds a lot “bigger” than it looks. Naturally, it would be asking too much to expect concert volume levels or for it to function as a sound system for use in very large lounges. Anyone who is looking for compact, economical speakers should listen to the Quadral M20 without any hesitation whatsoever. It would be hard to find small speakers producing such tremendous sound elsewhere at this price."
