Quadral Aurum Titan VIII

Their history is long and eventful. The Titan of the 8th generation by Quadral back there provided, where it belongs: ahead.

  2. Data sheet

There are very few products that so long and so successfully have accompanied stereoplay like Titan. It came this liaison about bumpy detours: wanted to weigh Quadral that test newly developed ur-Titan Audio – In the fall of 1981 and took a harsh rebuff: the then editor-in-Chief of the audio Hannes Scholten declared them unusable.

The Quadral executives were irritated, but kept a cool head and knocked on in stereoplay, housed in the same publishing house. The former protagonists of the editorial office, Gerald O. Dick and Joachim Reinert, saw the potential, and so the Titan from here could start their unique victory run. for many years the rank & name-list – stood the massive transmission design on the top and on the wish list of most readers.

The Quadral Titan inspired a whole generation of speakers developers with its ingenious idiosyncratic combination: the legendary Technics bracelet set new standards in the treble, and you knew a such sub bass to date also does not.

– Or 15 years – the Titan was so or so similar – see also chart on page 24 five generations. The principle with the long line for the basses had not just benefits: there was a principle conditional frequency hole just above by 100 Hertz, and the Titans proved all of them extremely Watt-hungry. On top of that whopping performance was at that time still significantly more expensive.

Edmond Semmelhaack, the present-day Quadral’s Managing Director, describes the considerations of those days: “1996 we had arrived with the principle of transmission at the end; something new had to be found as.”

With much pressure

Since then, the Titans also are classic bass reflex designs. Well, but not quite classic. For the 6th generation Titan, Quadral fell for the first time on the combination of the bass reflex enclosure plus superior pressure Chamber. Although, these small antechamber brings a slight resonance with itself, but also in the upper bass between 80 and 200 Hz more level. Benefit: The bass need to work less and produce accordingly less distortion.

Significantly less THD…

…lautet also the motto for the 30 year anniversary showpiece Titan VIII. The new Quadral developer Sascha Reckert not only has a profound knowledge of the speaker, he is quite savvy in dealing with the analysis system by Klippel. The possibilities of this system led to a huge surge of development in recent years. Rad took the time and improved especially the magnet systems and drives the new Titan Chassiswith Klippel. And he decided to use a real high-frequency tapes for the first time, – as he says – distortion to get also here as little as possible.

The results show the TESTfactorythat the efforts have had an effect, at the latest. Linear frequency response almost to far about the audibility, distortion over the entire frequency range, low bass without end. Most importantly: I of the 1981 Titan 78 decibels efficiency came to a mere, anniversary model has about 86. The new needs roughly only one-seventh of the power, the connected amplifier previously had to take to achieve a neat volume as well as the desired bass control. I call time progress.

Modern times

Ur Titan in 1981 sounded – when it’s honest – Yes only when kept well. She was world class. It was loud, the small Mitteltöner schell from the clock fell. The new Titan – that made it clear they already with the first bars – does not know such limits. Mussorgsky’s “Gromus”, played by Markus Schirmer on a mighty Bösendorfer, requires downright huge dynamic jumps from the speakers. The most transducers bend here. The Titan VIII not.

Just at high levels, which reached the Quadral’s flagship with an only a subtle twist on the volume control, it makes the listener feel the whole power of this instrument. Schirmer takes in the lower keys, it rumbles up in the deepest layers, and the Quadral builds an ominous soundscape. Threatening because she play so clearly and precisely. For their outstanding skills are not the very sovereign bass fundament or the crazy dynamics.

The great joy of the resolution and the ability to so precisely and effortlessly swing buttons and their strings, inspired the tester team beyond all measure. Another example: the fast played “Highway” from LaBrassBanda (Habediehre). The trumpet was nice plastic, open, almost sparkling in the listening room. However, came just this trumpet in the well- stereoplay listening room damped but a touch too brisk over.

The “plus” position of the central controller brought here exactly the right dose of heat, the voices like that of Constanze Friend (friend ‘n fellow) did very well. But also called setting no beautiful Dyer made the new Titan VIII. No, she’s an exceptionally precise and highly dynamic, exciting fine resolution box with huge bandwidth and high level capability. Just a real titanium.
