RE: Anyone hear the new Quad ESL-2812 at CAF?

I heard them. I showed them! I thought they sounded pretty good. More of a refinement of the 2812 rather than a completely new model the reason is has the X designation.

The best Quad ever built IMHO by a fair margin. The improvements in dynamic capability, weight, grip, slam in the bottom still has me stunned. I can slam down on my Yello at 102dB+ peak levels and never shut them down and they do not sound the least bit stressed or strained. In fact I have yet to shut them down no matter how hard I bang on them.

At home I am using the 2912X driven by an ARC Reference 160S amp incredible combo for sure!

Full disclosure I'm an authorized Quad dealer so take my comments with the proverbial grain of salt!
