    QUAD, the distinguished British audio brand, is launching its first new speakers since 2016. The Revela 1 and Revela 2 harness highly evolved versions of classic QUAD technologies that can be traced back to 1949 and QUAD’s first speaker system, the Corner Ribbon. These technologies, elevated to breathtaking new heights using modern materials and advanced contemporary design, have delivered two new models that are easy to accommodate and utterly beguiling to hear.

    The Revela 1 is a classic bookshelf/stand-mount monitor equipped with a 6.5″ woofer and offered with an optional custom-engineered stand of equally striking design. The stand is finished in the same high-gloss paint standards as the speaker and provides the perfect mounting option and display solution for the stand-mount offering in the series.

    QUAD’s Director of Acoustics, Peter Comeau, has furthered his ground-breaking engineering work in further developing this Ribbon HF with over four years of research to bring a new level of musical delicacy, smoothness and ‘hear-through’ performance, thus revealing beautiful details of your music collection with a truly breath-taking performance.


    The advanced ‘True Ribbon’ unit is married to equally high-performance bass and midrange drivers. Again, subject to many years of research, development, testing and continuous innovation, the mid and bass drivers feature a new advanced fibre composition, aptly labelled ‘Reveal™’. Refined for seamless integration with the ‘True Ribbon’ HF, the smooth diaphragm drivers were purpose selected based on their rigidity and excellent self-damping properties. This new diaphragm, combined with a new, specially developed custom rubber surround, for a greater excursion and a new high-power motor system, means that the result is a superb bass performance, with power, depth, speed and articulation in abundance. And, of course, putting it all together is a phase-compensated Acoustic Butterworth crossover resulting from not only Computer-Aided Design but also hundreds of hours of critical listening tests using all types and flavours of music to achieve perfection.


    The Revela series continues QUAD’s industrial design evolution, sported in the models of recent years – such as the Vena and Artera series. The Revela series cabinets are skilfully hand-finished to a quality far exceeding that of relative competitors in this class. The Revela series is available in options of a polished real-wood veneer and seamless polished-paint finish or a simple and uber-classy ‘all-black’ glossy paint finish. In either finish, the Revela cabinets are a sight to behold! The precision-fitted baffle is seamlessly joined, also with a polished finish, for a presentation of the highest order. More than just a genuinely stunning furniture-quality piece of craftsmanship, the cabinet is internally braced, using a purpose-engineered structure connected to the cabinet panels in a manner that dissipates unwanted vibrations and resonances, thus maintaining structural rigidity, even under the most strenuous of performances. More than just a photobook-quality design!


    Adding to the highly effective innovations in QUAD Revela, the port tube design is precisely positioned with the optimum diameter and flaring to prevent longitudinal resonances from colouring the speaker’s performance. The low and midrange frequencies can perform with a free-flowing purity and no unintended resonance or boominess – giving you the full dynamics of your music.

    A serious statement piece from QUAD, the Revela series is the culmination of more than four years of development. It offers advanced technology, beautiful looks and breath-taking performance, all combined masterfully for ‘The Closest Approach To The Original Sound’.
