Quad Z-1 is the bookshelf model in Quad's Z-series. Z series is their flagship range of ribbon speakers with a unique sandwich driver construction. The Z series sits above the S series and features fabulous high gloss cabinets.

The new driver design and construction means Quad have delivered an exceptionally robust, high power speaker, yet with the delicate sound conventional ribbon speakers are known for.

Unlike conventional dome treble units where the voice coil ‘motor’ is attached separately to the diaphragm, Z Series ribbon is both the diaphragm and the motor system. The result is a unique combination of delicacy, smoothness and hear-through performance that helps make your music sing.

The bass drivers feature Quad's woven kevlar cone geometry, now matched by the double-roll-surround for the same smoothness and clarity offered by the ribbon treble unit.

Quad have history of producing remarkable ribbon speakers that date back to 1949 with the "Corner Ribbon" design. The Z series today possesses the same wonderful attributes of a particularly clear and detailed upper mid-range to treble performance whilst adding much greater power handling to match current amplification and deliver high dynamic range.

Three finishes are available Gloss Black, Gloss White and Gloss Rosewood.
