QUANTUM EDELSTEIN WHITE

A compact housing in combination with above-average acoustic performance. Technological excellence and innovative design come together in this exceptional compact loudspeaker to create an acoustic masterpiece – a real gem!
The front of the high-gloss varnished MDF body is adorned by a solid aluminium front panel with milled and burnished sound guide for the low-midrange loudspeaker and tweeter. The double base plate is also made of solid aluminium and has been combined with polished acrylic glass. Only high-quality components have been used for this two-way bass reflex system whereby the emphasis was placed on selected drivers (110 mm low-midrange loudspeaker, 25 mm dome tweeter and the also very high-quality cabling with particularly large cross-sections.)

These speakers are also available in black.

 Conclusion

"Magnat's elegant combination impresses with its premium workmanship and excellent musicality. The small Quantum Edelstein speakers proved to be the surprise package in our test, as they deliver a wonderfully vivid sound pattern despite their small size; the only thing lacking is a slight degree of emphasis in the bass range."

A real gem in terms of sound & design

Conclusion

"Those who appreciate the finer things in life will be getting their money's worth with these speakers. And I mean this in all respects, because the Quantum Edelstein combines everything long considered to be incompatible: design and sound - of the highest quality. The sleek and timeless elegance extends from the visual design to the coordination of the audio components. Overall, the Quantum Edelstein proves to be a fair-priced compact sound transducer whose resolution and neutrality will appeal to sophisticated listeners and whose amazing agility and level of power will attract fans of rock music. How anyone can make a compact two-way speaker with premium design standards even better in this price range I simply don't know."

Verdict

"With its Quantum Edelstein, Magnat has come up with a real treasure of sound that does full justice to its name. The small but fine shelf box doesn't only deliver a top-class build but also a sound that is convincing throughout. Those looking for a quite compact loudspeaker that combines sound and living-room furniture in a single piece will find their perfect loudspeaker in the Quantum Edelstein."
