AURUM A10S

Streaming Verstärker im Review.

Das High-End Magazin Image-Hifi hat sich in seiner neuesten Ausgabe den A10S genauer angeschaut.

Das Fazit:

"Betrachten Sie den Aurum A 10 S zuerst als Vollverstärker, der eine in seiner Preisklasse unge­wöhnliche Souveränität an den Tag legt. Dabei reicht er die spezifischen Qualitäten vorgeschalteter Elek­tronik mühelos an die Lautsprecher weiter. Eben dar­um verdient er exzellente Quellen; Phonostufe und SACD-Player bleiben unverzichtbar. Das Streaming­Board ist ein willkommenes Tor zu den unendlichen Weiten der Musik im Internet. Wer sich weiterhin auf seine Tonträger zu Hause konzentriert oder schon ei­ne separate Streaming-Lösung besitzt, der sollte sich den weitgehend baugleichen A 8 ansehen. Das The­ma Verstärker kann man mit einem Aurum im Regal jedenfalls für viele Jahre zufrieden abhaken. "

Vielen Dank für die tolle Bewertung!

Streaming amplifier under review.

High-end magazine image hifi took a close look at the A10S in its latest edition.

Summary:

“Consider the Arum A 10 S first and foremost as an amplifier that carries exceptional authority for one in its price class. It effortlessly transmits the exact qualities of the upstream electronics to the loudspeakers. Which is why it deserves excellent sources; the phono stage and SACD player are indispensable. The streaming board is a welcome gateway to the infinite vastness of music in the Internet. Anyone who still wants to concentrate on their audio recordings at home or who already owns a separate streaming solution should take a look at the largely identical A 8. With an Aurum product on your shelf, you can happily tick off the subject of amplifiers for many years to come.”

Thank you for the great review!

Full amplifier Aurum A8 and CD player Aurum C8

Wishful thinking

The new combination of full amplifier Aurum A8 and CD player C8 provides independent of the musical genre and the connected Loudspeakers long, relaxed and at the same time stimulating listening sessions. It is the consistent development of the Aurum product range. The high-quality processing, the certainty that these timeless devices result from manual work in Germany (this applies even to the circuit boards!) and the consistent sound - tuned electronics are on the plus side of the combination. The amplifier is powerful, musical and without preference for a musical direction or certain frequency ranges - it is balanced and playful. I almost liked the CD player even more – next to its excellent timing, especially due to the open and distortion-free recording analog Class-A output stage. A real insider tip in this price class.

STEREO AURUM TITAN 9

TITAN 9

Summary, TITAN: a success story
This loudspeaker is a legend. 1981 was the year when – for what was then 8,600 DM – this huge acoustic transducer with a truly amazing sound appeared on the scene, making a noise that only really big loudspeakers can. The idea conceived by Helmut Schaper with transmission-line sound channelling and ribbon tweeter were the key elements in the first four versions, until subsequently Berndt Stark, Dirk Fritsche, Thomas Mengert and now Sascha Reckert took over the development of Titan, Vulkan, Montan & Co. and each made their own, very individual mark on the product. The Titan trademark was always an exceptional low bass with a lively dynamic It’s not changed over the generations and decades. Admittedly there is no stopping technical progress and so the sound of each more sophisticated successor is more mature, more harmonious and altogether more convincing. Simulation technology, CAD and an improved chassis make that possible.

AREA DVD AURUM TITAN 9

TITAN 9 Masterpiece

AREA DVD: "Best performances in every discipline crowns Titan 9 to the best Titan of all times"

Online magazine AREA DVD has elected AURUM TITAN 9 as "masterpiece" in the category "floorstander luxury class". The result of the XXL test of September 19, 2016: "Titan 9, which has been presented at the fair Highend 2016, is a real masterpiece. This impression manifests itself right after unpacking. Finest manufacturing quality, outstanding varnishes, a first class connecting terminal with sound potentiometers that fulfil the highest standard, and a top quality socle – this already shows the special status of Titan. The only compromise lies in the visible screw connection of the two middle and tweeter chassis that are integrated in the D’Appolito-arrangement. Acoustically Titan 9 also satisfies the highest requirements confidently. Not only is the level stability exorbitantly high, even in the listening room above 40 square meters, no: also the all round acoustic harmony lies on an enormous level. Better attuned as its predecessor the current Titan 9 is also far from appearing aggressively or even shrill. Fine tuned midst, enormous transparency and brilliance in the treble range: Especially the high treble range shows the strength of Titan 9 impressively. Accordingly, it was worthy to bring the production of the quSENSE ribbon directly back to the company in Hannover. Like this the tweeter appears perfectly attuned to Titan 9. In the bass range, on the other end of the frequency spectrum, the two powerful 265 mm woofers set accents effectively. Due to the over the years perfected pressure chamber bass reflex principle a clear structured firm bass with extraordinary depths is provided. Like this Titan 9 presents itself as an in every detail totally successful new construction, that surpasses audibly the acoustic performance of its predecessor in all respects.

35 years on top

... this is how online magazine LowBeats entitles the test of current AURUM TITAN 9. Chief editor Holger Biermann sees the newest AURUM flagship in his conclusion: “again at the top“, “the total package quadral AURUM Titan R9 is just right. 15,000 euro is a lot of money, but a lot is offered. In the ninth variation of the Titan theme, excellent manufacturing and a comparably discreet sound with an extremely low bass capability are combined. Regarding the tonal character it is similar to the equally priced KEF Reference 5, but has more level stability. Of course there are some loudspeakers in this price category that sound even more open and starting. Well, there has to be something for every taste. With Titan R9 you can listen fabulously relaxed, but also re-enact live concerts in original volume. So, quadral AURUM Titan R9 again sets standards in its class – the flagship character maintains. The slightly high display is a matter of taste, but you can easily correct it by bending it gently forward and back down again. “

AURUM VULKAN 9

Die Quadral Aurum Vulkan 9 kann in allen Testreihen für Begeisterung sorgen. Sie ist eine ungeheuer druckvoll und zugleich sensibel aufspielende Box, die auch im großen Hörraum dank der exzellenten Pegelfestigkeit und der gebotenen Räumlichkeit sehr gut aufgehoben ist.
Die Abmessungen sind mit einer Höhe von 145 cm, einer Breite von 32 cm und einer Tiefe von 51 cm schon durchaus als imposant zu bezeichnen, der eindrucksvollen optischen Erscheinung folgt aber auch ein nicht minder eindrucksvoller Klang: Toller Tiefgang, vielschichtige Mitten und eine enorme Transparenz - ohne störende Aggressivität - in den Höhen machen die Vulkan 9 schon fast unerhört gut.
Hier stellt sich die ernsthafte Frage: Wer braucht noch mehr? Kaum jemand, wir nehmen die Antwort vorweg. Natürlich gibt es HiFi-Freunde, die schlichtweg immer das Größte und Beste des jeweiligen Herstellers brauchen. Im Falle Quadral Aurum wäre das die Titan 9. Doch die wesentlich preiswertere Vulkan 9 kann fast alles genauso gut, und trotz der erwähnten nicht eben kleinen Abmessungen ist sie doch kompakter als die Titan 9. Für uns ist die Vulkan 9 derzeit eine der besten Boxen überhaupt auf dem deutschen Markt.

The Quadral Aurum Vulkan 9 achieves impressive results in all tests. It is both an immensely powerful and sensitive speaker. Its excellent stability and reproduction potential makes it equally at home in a large listening space.

The dimensions are certainly imposing with a height of 145 cm, a width of 32 cm and a depth of 51 cm, but the impressive optics are also matched a sound that is just as convincing: excellent depth, multi-layered mid-ranges and an immense transparency – without distracting aggression – in the trebles, make for an almost unbelievable overall package.

It seriously begs the question: who could ask for more? We can answer that ourselves – hardly anyone. Of course there are always HiFi fans who always want the biggest and best offered by the manufacturer in question.
In the case of Quadral Aurum that would be the Titan 9. But the significantly cheaper Vulkan 9 can do almost everything just as well and despite the aforementioned not-exactly-small dimensions, it is still more compact than the Titan 9. In our view the Vulkan 9 is currently one of the best speakers available on the German market.

Summary
The multichannel system from quadral sets the bar very high for other loudspeakers. The Vulkan 9 team produces a fantastic sound for music and film, stereo or multichannel along with winning fine and broad dynamics. And besides all that, the loudspeakers look fabulous and have a first-class spec and finish.

AURUM MONTAN 9 Test

AURUM MONTAN 9 as a guest at fairaudio

Big commendation from Berlin: New AURUM MONTAN convinces at its test premiere in optics as well as in sound. The conclusion of fairaudios test editorial staff: ”Finding a loudspeaker that seems to do everything right is really rare. quadral Aurum Montan 9 comes very close to this goal. If you ad a potent amp as working base and a not too small room, it plays every music literally monitor-like neutral and at the same time thrilling. Everything is possible: from the small chamber music line up to brachial electronic music. Sure, you will always find loudspeakers with deeper reaching bass, even more level, more love for detail, or which are able to provide something else, especially if you are willing to make higher investments. To squint for “higher, better, wider” however, the Hanoverians leave little room. The cherry on the cake is that the all-rounder qualities of Aurum Montan 9 don’t “smell” like compromise. Listening to them brings lots and lots of joy. The design as well as the manufacturing quality deserve an extra commendation. I personally find the quadral total package simple and simply superb. Congratulations!”

AURUM RODAN 9


Summary:
The quadral Aurum Rodan 9 is the smallest floorstanding speaker in the Aurum series – and reckoned to be the most graceful of these 3-way speakers. In terms of how it looks, that’s exactly right. The slim proportions, the extremely successful design and the high-quality finish ensure that this one-meter high pillar can embellish any living room. The daintiness stops when it comes to the sound: here the Rodan very impressively keeps the quadral promise to deliver unexpected bass volumes. It’s also possible thanks to the Aurum-typical pressure chamber/bass reflex construction. Almost more impressive is the impact of the aluminium ribbon tweeter: it helps the Rodan to achieve great transparency and space in its reproduction. The treble level switch also means this speaker fits acoustically into the living room. Anyone looking for a fresh sound transducer could have struck it lucky with the Aurum Rodan 9. The fact that quadral is offering a 10-year guarantee for this loudspeaker is another indicator that the next box change won’t be an issue until a long time into the future.

A solid entry into the high-end world

... is how Lite-Magazin is heading the test of AURUM GALAN 9. Chief editor Roman Maier personally took a look at the smallest members of the AURUM-family and he gave a great commendation: "With GALAN quadral presents a worthy rootkeeper of its now legendary Aurum line. One, that completes the said series with its first-class workmanship, high-quality choice of material and excellent sound quality. With the home motto "Form follows function, follows form, follows function ..." the Hanoverians combine design and technology to a perfect unit. This is only possible when all components come out of one hand. And so they do! quadral not only develops, but manufactures both, the elaborated design of the tweeter as well as the matching low midrange chassis single-handedly. So Galan is no less than a compact high-end loudspeaker, that simply belongs to the absolute best of its price-class according to cabinet design and sound. One, that does not conceal any detail and is not boring, despite all the balance, but agile and grapping. Now this is the biggest compliment you can make a loudspeaker ..."

AURUM TITAN VIII

„So how good are these Quadral Titan VIII? Stunning… Demanding. But also rich and full of great musical moments. If you put them in space large enough to proove their dynamic capabilities, if you let them stand freely in the room as far from the walls as possible and if you equip them with powerful and stable high-end electronics, they will reward you with universal talent. Of course you shouldn´t expect monitor sound, also don´t wait for quiet, chamber listening – this you can achieve with something else. But if you desce unrepeatable move to the goal, if you wish dense, powerful, colorful and unbelievably rich atmosphere, if you want to feel very realistic proportions of the instruments and if you want to feel impressed by the pressure and the airiness of the sound, also if you like to enjoy fun combined with clarity and absolute control, the eighth generation of Titan should be great for you. Once they play the first tune, you´ll forget there´s slightly too much bass and treble, that even the chamber music and quiet jazz has so much power it´s strange and that making these to play silent is like wanting a Rolling Stones gig to be calm and quiet. In context of contemporary prices and trends, the Titan VIII are also reasonably priced. So, let yourself be amazed, because these speakers are really amazing!“

Verdict:
"If I've been hard on the Titan VIII in this review, it's because my expectations of it were so high. Physically, it's a lot of loudspeaker for the money and it is immaculately finished. It also delivers impressive bass and, with its high sensitivity, can easily be coaxed into playing loud. For some, it will tick lots of boxes. All it lacks is that rare ability to cast a spell and draw you helplessly into the musical experience."

PLATINUM+ nine

FAZIT:
High-Tech made in Hannover: Unsere Elektronik-/Lautsprecher-Kette begeistert uns durch akustische Lebendigkeit, enorme Räumlichkeit und ausgezeichnete Leistungsreserven. Die 8.200 EUR Systempreis inklusive Fernbedienung sind für diese Leistungsfähigkeit nicht zu viel, zumal auch das Finish aller Komponenten erstklassig ist. Im Detail gibt es kleine Kritikpunkte. Das Display des A10S könne noch besser auflösen, und es wäre schön, wenn man mit der App alles steuern könnte. Ehrlich gesagt, dann würde man auch die RC-III nicht benötigen. Die Auswahl an Streaming-Diensten könnte großzügiger ausfallen. Wenn auch bei wahren Musik-Kennern wegen der unbefriedigenden Auflösung verpönt, könnte unserer Meinung nach eine Integration von Spotify nicht schaden. Das war es aber auch - ansonsten bekommt man ein feines, auch im Detail überzeugendes System für die höchst sensible, mitreißende Musikwiedergabe.

The PLATINUM +nine from quadral belongs to the premium class of floorstanding loudspeakers, without question. It looks great and offers a high-quality finish with the very best materials. It lends jazz and classical music as well as hand-made pop and rock a natural feel and remarkable spatial presence.

Latest from Hanover

IN BRIEF:
This loudspeaker doesn’t overstate its case. There is no false sentimentality here – and just as well. The high degree of analysis is it's trump card. That goes for all frequency responses right to the lowest bass – which has contour and pressure. The pressure chamber system shows what it is made of here. Bravo for that. Plus the interesting D'Appolito arrangement, creating an extremely analytical mid and high-range playback. The panoramic reproduction was wonderfully wide and precise. The high degree of analysis could dignify any sound studio – not a single weakness.

RECOMMENDATION: Bass quality

PLATINUM+ five

FAZIT:<br/>Ich hatte es seinerzeit bereits bei der Aurum Orkan VIII behauptet und tue es jetzt wieder: Die Hannoveraner können einfach Allrounder! Die Quadral Platinum+ Five gibt sich im Grunde bei jedem Musikgenre souverän, lebendig und angenehm balanciert. Selbst grenzwertig abgemischte Rockmusik macht mit diesem „härtefreien“ Lautsprecher einfach nur Spaß, wenngleich die Platinum+ Five schon auch vermittelt, dass sie noch mehr kann, wenn das Ausgangsmaterial von höherer Güte ist. Das kann man in dieser Preisklasse aber auch erwarten. Darüber hinaus punktet die schlanke Niedersächsin mit zeitlos-elegantem Design und pfiffigen Detaillösungen (Füße/Spikes, Anpassungsschalter für den Hochton). Ja, sicher haben in dieser ambitionierten Klasse auch andere Hersteller schöne „Töchter“, das Qualitätsniveau ist generell hoch. Wer klanglich auf der Suche nach einem ausgeprägten Alleskönner ist, könnte mit der Quadral Platinum+ Five aber genau „seinen“ Lautsprecher finden.<br/>

MINT PLATINUM+ two

PLATINUM+ two

Quadrat Platinum Plus Two, 1.600 Euro

Hat man einen etwas kapriziösen Ver­stärker mit großem Potential, ist man auf Boxen angewiesen, die ihm opti­male Entfaltungsbedingungen bieten. Die Quadral-Boxen der alten Plati­num-Serie waren solche Boxen. Sie sahen zwar nicht nach viel aus, ließen sich aber zu wunderbar stimmigen, eleganten Anlagen verketten, die viel besser klangen als die Summe der Einzelteile. Ob das auch für die Nach­folgerserie Platinum Plus gilt?

Bei den Platinum Plus Two handelt es sich um Kompaktboxen für alle Räumlichkeiten, in denen ausgewach­sene Standboxen nicht unterzubrin­gen sind. Wobei kompakt hier weder winzig bedeutet, noch dass man ir­gendwelche Kompromisse eingehen müsste: Die Platnum Plus Two verfügt über ein dickwandiges, relativ großvo­lumiges Gehäuse, das gerade noch auf ein Sideboard passt und dort in wei­ßem oder schwarzem Lack eine sehr gute Figur macht. Bestückt ist die Box mit einem 15,5 cm messenden Tieftö­ner mit Metallmembran, sowie einem vornehmen Ringradiator-Hochtöner, der wie der Bass aus Quadrals eigener Entwicklung stammt. Und dem die Entwickler eine aberwitzig hohe obere Grenzfrequenz von 48 Kilohertz zu­trauen - nicht direkt hörbar, aber für eine saubere, präzise Wiedergabe auch im Hörbereich zumindest ein gutes Omen. Ein knackiger Knebelschalter auf der Rückseite erlaubt eine feinfühlige Anpassung der Hochtondosis um plus/ minus 1 dB.Im Test blieb der Schalter in der Neutralstellung, weil die Box einfach auf Anhieb absolut stimmig spielt.

Die Platinum Plus Two braucht für optimale Ergebnisse Platz und etwas Wandabstand, denn ihr Bass ist kraftvoll und reicht angesichts der Abmessungen schon fast irritierend tief- kein Kompaktboxen-Trickbass, sondern ernsthafter, erwachsener Tiefton.

Erwachsen ist auch die Abbil­dung: richtig weit, sauber gestaffelt und auf Anhieb ohne langes aktives Hinhören stabil einrastend. Ein Klang mit Präzision und Wucht, ein vollwer­tiger Gegenentwurf zu Standboxen. Und das Beste: Der Rega-Brio-Verstär­ker versteht sich auf Anhieb prächtig mit den Quadral-Boxen, was man daran erkennt, dass er den Edwards überraschend deutlich distanzierte.

Both music and voices always sound natural and films are reproduced homogeneously and non-stressfully. This is why the set gets 90 points (out of 100) and reaches our "reference class."

„Plain speaking

The Quadral Platinum M40 is not stingy when it comes to its advantages. The ample and innovative configuration gives it a powerful sound, which does not lose any of its impressiveness at high volumes. This guarantees overall neutral tonal tuning with particularly non-stressful and therefore relaxed musical enjoyment. This speaker is recommended for use in medium sized and large lounges and you will be enchanted by the supreme bass power, punchy mid-tones and high definition high-tones.

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"

"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."

Good news from the hifi-isle. In their March edition the specialist journal "HI-FI WORLD UK" tested Chromium Style 8 with a veeeery pleasing result:

Conclusion

The quadral CHROMIUM 8s are a handsome-looking floorstander with a quality of performance that belies their £1750 asking price. They are unerringly musical with a natural, balanced sound that allies detail to a punchy bass and rich treble. I’ve heard loudspeakers costing twice as much which don’t have the all-round quality of the quadrals – which makes them something of a bargain!

Tasteful, refined, but also brutish and powerful when it needs to be - features also reflected in the sound performance. If you have the right AV receiver, you can easily fill rooms up to 50 square metres with the setup tested here.

"Conclusion:
The Quadral Chromium Style set including QUBE 10 active is, same as the first Chromium Style ensemble that we tested, a hit in every regard! Excellent workmanship gives it both a truly noble appearance and polished acoustics. The expensive and complex ribbon tweeter ensures that the Style 52 and Style 12 Base give the optimum values for this price class, especially with regard to homogeneity and an extensive high tone range. The coupling of the ribbons to the mid-tone ranges, which is quite a problem on its own, has been completed brilliantly by Quadral, as the sound appears to come from a single source. The precise voice reproduction and authentic spatiality make the mid-tone ranges extremely satisfying to listen to. The new QUBE 10 has worked wonders for the bass ranges. The new active subwoofer is powerful, precise and has tremendous depth."

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"

Die neuen Aktivlautsprecher breeze blue Xl und L sind kaum im Fachhandel, da sind sie schon im Test. Das lite-magazin.de findet die kleine Regaler ziemlich gut. So auf ihr Fazit:

"Ja, es ist das Klangvermögen. Der 35 Watt leistende Quadral Breeze Blue L und der 45 Watt starke Quadral Breeze Blue XL bieten bei kleinen Maßen einen überraschend großen Sound, das rechtfertigt die Bezeichnungen „L“ und dem „XL“ – und damit lösen beide beeindruckend das Quadral-Versprechen „Bluetooth goes HiFi“ ein. Das ist die Bestimmung dieser neuen Blue-Modelle aus der Breeze-Reihe: Diese Bluetooth-Boxen sind für den Stereo-Musikgenuss gemacht. Das gelingt insbesondere dem XL, da er nicht nur klanglich größer aufspielt und mit der Fernbedienung mehr Komfort inklusive Sound-EQ bietet, sondern mit einem analogen Line-In und einem digitalen Toslink-Eingang die Musikzuspielung auch in unkomprimierter und hochqualitativer Form ermöglicht – für gerade mal 100 Euro mehr ist dieser Mehrwert beträchtlich."

breeze blue Xl & L tested by Lite-Magazin.

The latest active loudspeakers breeze blue Xl and L have barely hit the dealers and they have been tested already. lite-magazin.de is quite impressed by our little rack. According to its summary:

“Yes, there is excellent sound. The 35 Watt quadral Breeze Blue L and 45 Watt quadral Breeze Blue XL offer a surprisingly big sound for their small dimensions to justify the “L” and “XL” labels. Both impressively live up to the quadral promise that “Bluetooth goes HiFi”. That is the purpose of these new Blue models from the Breeze series: these Bluetooth boxes are made for stereo music enjoyment. That works particularly with the XL which not only delivers more sound and offers higher convenience including Sound EQ with the remote control but also enables the music feed with an analogue line-in and a digital Toslink input in an uncompromised and high-quality format – for the 100 Euro more, this added value is substantial.

"Affordable all-rounder with surprisingly powerful and dynamic acoustics" - an "Outstanding" for our entry-level model QUINTAS 606!

With just under 280, - Euros a pair QUINTAS 606 provide much sound for little money. This is also online magazine AREA DVD’s opinion: "Casually speaking, quadral Quintas are no formal "scoop": Still, classic old-loudspeaker-style from the 80s will certainly find its pleasure. Don’t be dazzled by the lightly dusty, but clean manufactured exterior. Acoustically, it may be difficult to find a comparable low-priced speaker that attracts with these convincing sound arguments. Powerful bass, excellent spatiality and a perfectly integrated voice reproduction speak for Quintas 606. Also efficiency and level stability deserve commendation. Thanks to their harmonious design, Quintas are suitable for virtually any source material."

"The low-distortion reproduction coming from the sleek Bauhaus-style Quadral Qube will enthral any listener. It was noticeably unobtrusive during the reproduction sequences yet it had a decisive emphasis when reproducing spec­tacular sound effects, such as those in the flight scenes in ‘Avatar’. Even music gourmets will come to love it as it makes the complete music spectrum audible right down to the deepest frequencies.”

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"

"Conclusion:
The Quadral Chromium Style set including QUBE 10 active is, same as the first Chromium Style ensemble that we tested, a hit in every regard! Excellent workmanship gives it both a truly noble appearance and polished acoustics. The expensive and complex ribbon tweeter ensures that the Style 52 and Style 12 Base give the optimum values for this price class, especially with regard to homogeneity and an extensive high tone range. The coupling of the ribbons to the mid-tone ranges, which is quite a problem on its own, has been completed brilliantly by Quadral, as the sound appears to come from a single source. The precise voice reproduction and authentic spatiality make the mid-tone ranges extremely satisfying to listen to. The new QUBE 10 has worked wonders for the bass ranges. The new active subwoofer is powerful, precise and has tremendous depth."

The discreet 5.1 set consisting of 2x RHODIUM 400, 1x 100 RHODIUM 100 BASE, 2x PHASE 150 and the QUBE 8 subwoofer convinced the test editors, as can be seen from the test mark of 1.0 (top class). The conclusion: "Smaller living spaces quickly appear overloaded with a 5.1 system and forfeit fast the living atmosphere with bulky and plain speakers. However, limited space and high demands on optics is not the end for a surround system, as quadral proves with its visually appealing combination of its Rhodium and Phase series. Particularly the white finish is doing very well in tight spaces and sonically the quadral setup leaves nothing more to be desired anyway. With the "small" Rhodium ensemble quadral offers no less than home theater sound at the highest level."

Quadral have proved that top quality can still be produced in every regard even if the purchase price is low: The Ferrum 7000 F front speakers are visually sleek and modern and they also have an excellent finish. Acoustically the set was vibrant, with superb level stability and it was a joy to listen to. Furthermore, the extremely compact Qube 7 is also a tremendous surprise. It would be very difficult to find a better solution for a purchase price of around 1,300 euros that includes an active subwoofer and even in the more expensive price classes up to 2,000 euros it is not easy to find another set that can out-perform this Ferrum set."
