Acoustics, aesthetics, advantages.

To create something that lasts. To develop something that speaks equally to the eyes and ears. To design something that brings experience, tradition and craftsmanship together with the latest technology. To bring forth works that are not just of their time, but ahead of their time.

That is our challenge. And our promise. It is based on the best possible synthesis of acoustics and aesthetics, and it’s found in AURUM speakers.

An AURUM is not just any nice-sounding speaker. AURUM is backed by a philosophy that has been thought though to the last detail. An AURUM speaker is not developed just with our mind, but with our lifeblood. And AURUM speakers are not bought just with the mind, but also with the heart.

canadahifi.com, February 20th, 2014 - Review for AURUM MONTAN VIII

"My time with the Aurum Montan VIII’s has been revelatory.  They have provided me with a reminder of what a well-engineered large stature speaker can actually deliver.  If it’s not yet evident from this review, I’ll say it clearly now – the Aurum Montan’s are capable of delivering marvelous bass performance – extended, flat, tuneful, articulate and dynamic.  They are also impressively coherent, even at a distance of just 8ft, despite their tri-driver complement of disparate sizes and construction.  I would say that if you desire uncompromising detail, accuracy, speed and transparency, coupled with essentially full-range performance, the Aurum Montan’s are a speaker to be heard.  At nearly $8,000 – sure, the Aurum Montan VIII loudspeakers have a lot of competition but I believe that they offer a unique combination of qualities that once heard won’t easily be forgotten."

consisting of: 4 x AURUM VULKAN VIII R; 1 x AURUM BASE TITAN, 2 x AURUM ORKUS R

"Here at audiovision we have never tested a set of speakers before with this type of naturalness and smoothness and none of the detail is suppressed. The profound bass controls Quadral’s updated sound artist. We awarded this 5.2 Aurum combination set, which costs 24,000 euros, 94 points and this puts it right at the top of our test table.”

6moons, August 2012 - Review for AURUM TITAN VIII

"Conclusion. Though I tend to find such statements cheap and over-used— apologies then—I do view Quadral’s Titan VIII as a very special offer amongst top speaker models. At this price I couldn’t think of another which combines this level of music-serving accuracy with such impressive power and pressure. As such this speaker is an open portal to a very direct and emotional connection with the music. The only departure from this in the very positive sense of the word utterly uncomplicated presentation was a minor elevation in the low bass. But even mediocre mastering jobs remained fun and this speaker was simultaneously capable to reach deep on audiophile productions.
...
Psych profile:

  • A grand high-pressure presentation without seams. The Titan VIII offers very immediate, emotional and stress-free access to the music.
  • High transparency, precision and resolution never intrude but serve the music as a matter of underlying fact.
  • Top dynamics both micro and macro.
  • An airy, fine and highly informative treble without nervousness or agitation. Particularly praiseworthy is the accurate rendering of textures and sustains.
  • A tonally perfectly even and satisfyingly differentiated midband. Voices and instruments are endowed with just the perfect measure of warmth and natural color.
  • A very 'mature' infrasonic authority. The bass is generally perfectly integrated but the first octave includes a small emphasis. Good if not bone-dry timing dominates the low registers.
  • Involving soundstaging perfectly detached from the boxes. Image sharpness and plasticity aren't extraordinary but solid.
  • High fit 'n' finish and high material returns even relative to the not insignificant sticker. Only the chassis mounting with wood screws is a point of criticism.
  • Last but not least: very high power handling."
