Quad 12L Classic

 

Tonal neutrality, integration between drivers, composure, fine build and finish

Lacks verve, gloss finishes add £80 to the price

There’s plenty to admire in the 12L Classic, but we wish they’d stir the soul more

Quad 12L2

 

Launched last autumn, the L2 series is designed to update Quad's popular L-series with new aluminium voice coils, new-look tweeter pod, improved chassis designed to cut down on midrange distortion and improved terminals, spikes and plinths.

Marvellously integrated sonic image, no shortage of bass

Unsubtle, blocky looks, tweeter can feel a bit 'shut in' with very high frequencies

Quad 12L2

 

I tried these speakers at the suggestion of the audio dealer near my new home when I moved in 2007. I had enquired about Charios because I liked the open and clear sound of the Syntar 100 monitors, but they were lacking a bit in bass. These 12L2s...

Beautifully finished lacquer work. Excellent sound, especially at this bargain price! Handy to have bridging plates provided if they are not to be bi-wired.

(Minor - The plastic blanking plugs in the banana sockets had no 'nib', unlike the earlier Quads, making them a bit difficult to remove. A knife was needed unlike the earlier types when one could grip the 'nib' without getting near the gold metalwork.)

Quad 12L2

 

Excellent sound quality, very open midrange. The speakers have wonderful articulation in vocal tracks. Being used with 2x Audiolab 8000M amps. 1 Amp per channel. Bi-Wired. Music played from CD (Cambridge Audio 740C upsampling CD player) or from coaxial...

The left channel speaker was resonating at a certain frequency which i did not have the equipment to measure, but an audible buzz was apparent at all volume levels. Removing and reinstalling the larger cone rectified the problem. Speakers are now both...

Quad 12L2

 

Lovely detailed sound, plenty of bass, shiny cabinets, bi-wireable, good build quality, great value.

Grilles are an ugly shape, speakers need to be a fair distance from rear wall to avoid boomy sound, shame they're not made in the UK but you can't have everything.
