Aurum Altan VIII
Musically an undisputed talent and technically a superb piece of engineering with a masterly finish: that's the new ALTAN from quadral.
Musically an undisputed talent and technically a superb piece of engineering with a masterly finish: that's the new ALTAN from quadral. Its unadulterated reproduction of the fundamental tones is down to the quadral ALTIMA® diaphragm, made from a compound of aluminium, titanium and magnesium. And the high trebles come over exceptionally accurately and effortlessly thanks to quadral's new ribbon tweeter. The crossover network gives this duo precisely the support it needs to make music with unequalled homogeneity and vitality. The ALTAN can handle even really high levels of volume, and the sound it generates is what you'd normally expect from a bigger unit.

Reviews and Awards:
"... the final conclusion: There is nothing more to say — an extremely clear tweeter with outstanding analytical capacity. However, one that precisely filters out less worthwhile elements as they come in has yet to be invented. One would be justified in wondering if this will ever happen..."
Hi-Fi Choice 10/2011
"Wide dynamic range and fine coherence; sweet and smooth top end... Though not the cheapest, this speaker has a warmth that belies its size, and a laid-back character."
