QUAD
ESL-988
Full-Range Electrostatic Doublet




*pic is 989





"Even if price weren't an issue I'd be hard pushed to find speakers that better the 988's combination of talents...
I can't recommend them too highly."

−Gramophone, March 2001




"Quads can deliver a sublime performance. They still take my breathaway with their profound revelation."
−Hi-Fi World, Noel Keywood




"Going back to conventional speakers afterwards merely highlights how great the 989 is."
−Hi-Fi News, July 2000




"The Best Late Night Speakers inThe World... ever! "
−Hi-Fi World, December 2000




"Quad has done it again: the 988's are world class -
the single driver presents a fabulously together sound that's tough to match at any price.
"
−What Hi-Fi?, December 2000




"When I return the 988's it will be in a package much too small for the speakers, but just large enough to carry a check for their remittance."
−PS, The Absolute Sound, July 2001




"...time marches on, but properly subwoofered Quad 988s are still one of the world's best speakers."
−REG, The Absolute Sound, July 2001




"What more could an audiophile want than a pair of ESL 988's? You get world-class resolution. Superb, stable soundstaging. Spectacular transient response. And sound as neutral as it gets. I could hear into each recording as if the speakers weren't there. The spatial presentation was breathtaking. The only things you don't get are very deep bass*, the ability to play crazy loud*, and sexy styling."
−Stereophile, Vol.24#11.


* Addition of low-coloration electronic crossover and subs solves these issues, outperforming the larger 989 (and most everything else!).   −AllegroSound, 2010.
