From 1981 through today, quadral AURUM loudspeakers have been setting standards. Every generation combines consistency and innovation in a unique way. AURUM is no mainstream product. This high-end series from Hanover, Germany is for a person who loves the unrivalled; for a person who doesn’t hesitate in taking the higher road. Therefore, developing a new AURUM generation is an undertaking and commitment like no other, presenting huge opportunity and also challenges. At the beginning technical aspects are paramount. Physical limitations have to be considered; then there is development, measuring,...

AURUM INSIDE Form follows function, follows form, follows function… The AURUM 9 loudspeaker cabinet design has never been this elaborate. Inside are massive braces and insulated walls. Wedge-shaped midrange chambers also provide a clear reduction of unwanted standing waves in this big floor-stander. Even the bevelled housing edges improve the omni directional sound characteristics. Besides the tonal aspects, this latest design plays a distinctive role in our future development. Loudspeakers are furniture that have to fit harmoniously into their environment. AURUM 9 clearly demonstrates a language...

quadral quSENSE T H E H E A RT O F A U R U M 9 From the tiny shelf speaker to the strong TITAN, AURUM 9 loudspeakers utilize the new quadral quSENSE tweeter technology – developed and manufactured by quadral in Hanover. In comparison to conventional ribbon tweeters, quadral quSENSE is the product of a short and wide ribbon. Therefore the membrane surface is highly resilient. The result is impressive: extremely low distortions and a vertical radiation behaviour – one of which you would not expect from a ribbon. In addition comes an unrivalled, finely drawn and hugely detailed sound picture of enormous...

AURUM IN DETAIL PRESSURE CHAMBER The AURUM recipe for power and dynamics Two powerful woofers - that work by way of a pressure chamber in the front and a bass reflex chamber at the back. The theoretical description of this being the AURUM pressure chamber. In effect, this principle is a combination of deep and kick-bass. Two attributes which only a few loudspeakers combine. New with the AURUM 9 is the bass reflex port which is placed in the front, between the woofers. This facilitates the setting of the loudspeakers and the impulsivity. Once more, the pressure chamber becomes a visual highlight...

The high / midrange area is a combination of quadral ALTIMA® and quadral quSENSE in a D’appolito-arrangement. In the low range area, you’ll discover a powerful pressure chamber with two strong drivers. The result is impressive: extreme dynamics paired with an enormous sound stage and...

AUDIOPHILE POWER The more calmly you dedicate yourself to a task, the more authentic and accurate the result. The new AURUM VULKAN is capable of sheer inexhaustible reserves of power and also finesse, which is why it renders naturally and with ease at the highest levels. As a result, it takes you on a musical journey, one that’s shaped by power and sovereignty. Crystal clear highs bewitch, while rich and dry basses make music a totally perceptible experience.
