The Quad S-5 is the largest floorstanding speaker of the range. A true 3 way speaker with a dedicated mid-range driver and ribbon tweeter. Stunning detail and bass authority. Beautifully finished in a classic design.

The S-series combines advanced Kevlar-coned bass/midrange drivers with a specially designed ribbon tweeter, supplying effortless detail to capture all the nuances and passion of the original performance.

The ribbon itself is a sandwich construction, making it robust enough to handle high-powered amplifiers, and is fully immersed in a powerful magnetic field so that it accomplishes its dual role of being both the voice coil and the sound radiator.

As well as delivering first rate transients and superb levels of detail, the sound from this ribbon unit is smooth right up to the highest notes beyond the limits of human hearing. Controlled directivity maintains this sound quality over a wide horizontal arc to cover all listeners whilst vertical dispersion is tailored to avoid floor and ceiling reflections, resulting in the purest high frequency performance at the listening seat. The S-5 is a floorstanding design capable of filling a larger spaces with ease possessing substantial bass weight as well as articulate mid-range and open high frequencies.

As we expect from Quad the S-5 is beautifully presented with rounded top edges at the front and rear. The speaker cabinets use a sandwich construction of alternate layers of MDF and high-density particleboard to reduce panel resonance to an absolute minimum.

Why is this item collection only?

This is because some items require more setting up than others (e.g. multi room systems) or have advanced settings.

To ensure you get the most from your equipment we need to take you through the process of setting it up correctly.

Sometimes the equipment is simply not suitable for shipping (e.g. glass stands that have been built up).

Simply reserve your product today and then arrange to pick it up from your nearest Audio-T store.

Items showing as "In Stock" are within the Audio T group and we may need additional time to transfer to your selected branch.
