Not everyone who puts emphasis on extreme tonal naturalness and a rich bass Foundation, has the necessary space in upmarket until 700 euro to confront a Floorstanding speaker into the living room. Many others like look also very reluctant in his blessed not to big boxes.

Quadral went another way for the optimization of beam behavior. The smallest baffle in this comparison nestles with little overhang of the two drivers. The Hanoverian chassis diameter of just 13.5 centimetres content in the bass.
The aluminum cone is just times as wide as the base plate of the tweeter, which represents the cream of the piece. It’s a ring radiator the type RiCom M, as it is used in a similar way also in the Aurum series settled above the row of Platinum M. This construction principle, sound is produced only by a small, existing in this case Titanium Diaphragm ring in the area of the voice coil. So, the force can be optimally distribute while domes with increasing frequency in the Middle tend to “Break up” onto the beam. Say: The inner portion follows only delayed and sometimes even matched the outer part, which is close to the driver. The partial coloration result in undulations in the frequency response.
The middle area of the tweeter, where otherwise usually takes place a unwanted life of the membrane at high frequencies, was omitted. But this smart little box against the other three would have a chance with their larger low midrange drivers?
The modifier default the monitor audio the daintier Quadral Platinum especially in the bass not exceeded. While bribing with extreme precision and considerable attack, but due to the size disadvantages of housing and chassis the well could do nothing against the neat Fishing. She had was a certain kick, for example, when Thomas Dolbys “Budapest By Blimp” (Capitol) was very bubbly but some of the low bass content remained guilty.
The tide turned in the highs and mids, and the Quadral enthusiasts with special enthusiasm and precision. Their individual strengths were absolute terms at a level that would have been quite enough to fight for the title of the test. This is the quite slender tuned box formed the instruments and performers as nailed up on the stage. Jamie Cullum appeared during the song “High And Dry” (“Twenty something”, universal) to stand between the speakers and to breathe. The stable spatial imaging of also very transparent Platinum was almost holographic. This performance makes the small Quadral for combination with subwoofers and makes a wall near list not only possible, but almost essential.
