Quad ESL 2812



The ESL is the complete embodiment of Quad's company ethos “The Closest Approach To The Original Sound” and the ESL series reproduces a sound which is indistinguishable between hearing a pair of loudspeakers and having the performers right there in front of you.

The Quad ESL-2812 is one of Quads latest reference loudspeakers and, like its predecessors, they regarded amongst the finest loudspeakers in the world. Quad's patented technology provides a unique combination of sonic speed and accuracy that is only possible from an electrostatic loudspeaker. This latest generation of ESL models, the ESL-2912 and ESL-2812 have built on the original concept with improved efficiency.

With the imaging and sound staging realized by a theoretically ideal point source, alongside near perfect transparency and lack of coloration, Quad ESL speakers are without peer.
