THE QUAD 57 RENAISSANCE STAND
It was twenty-five years ago when Pierre first heard the Quad 57 and was converted on the spot. Its still his favorite electrostatic speaker. Sure, the stock 57s are shy on low bass and high treble. But thats simply due to flimsy mounting, just like for Magnepans.
Our Renaissance Stand completely solves the 57's lack of panel vibration draining and excessive panel wobble. The plain jane 57 is transformed with intriguingly subtle curves and elegant, polished maple textures.
The real seducer is the sound: raw bass punch increases 100% and the normally muted top end comes in super-sparkling and airy.
If youre on a concrete slab, tile, engineered wood, or plywood floor, definitely consider the Maple Plinth option (now or later). Youll never want a subwoofer again.
If you have two pairs of the 57s, the Renaissance Stands make possible the newly developed, radical Double-T configuration . Youll gain staggering bass, endless treble, and a room-wide sweet spotsubstantially better and much more practical than stacked Quads. For details on the Double-T option or the Maple Plinth option call 410-867-7543.
