Qln Prestige Three is a 2-way floor standing speaker. Based on the classic Qln Signature pyramide design. Such as time alignment leaning baffle, minimised baffle area around the dive units.
Every speaker models are unique and every component are carefully selected and matched to each other for the very best sound performance.
As with previous Qln designs. Priority has been set around getting technology out of the way to make music lovers be able to effortlessly concentrate on enjoying the magic of listening to music. Performed by stereo equipment at the very far end of the performance spectrum. At Qln we believe the music should always be in the forefront, not the stereo equipment.
Prestige Three offering refined speaker engineering at the pinnacle of a classic 2-way speaker design.
Incorporating over four decades of speaker research, development, design and construction, the Qln Prestige Three carries the legacy of a timeless combination of form, function and performance. Re-engineered to provide an unprecedented high-end 2-way floor-standing audio transducer, presenting truly enticing audio reproduction without any impediment or compromise, packaged in perfect symbiosis and harmony.
A slanted baffle provides perfect time alignment between woofer and tweeter. The truncated pyramid cabinet top with its minimised baffle area suppresses any standing waves inside the cabinet also offering improved 3D imaging.
By again basing the cabinet construction around Qln’s unique Qboard® technology, structural resonances are eliminated. The bass reflex port with its trumpet shape at both ends eliminates air turbulence.
Cabinet is de-coupled from the floor via solid feet with cones and pucks constructed out of hard, high damping materials.
The mid-woofer have been specifically selected and custom developed by industry renowned Danish driver manufacturer Scan Speak offering the latest in 21st century advanced driver technology. The uniquely coated Kevlar bass/midrange driver with its built-in copper ring in the magnet system offers symmetric drive and higher midrange dynamics while also suppressing intermodulation distortion. The result is remarkable vocal reproduction and astonishing micro/macro dynamics from a compact 2-way speaker design.
The advanced 25mm wide surround tweeter offers remarkable vocal reproduction and excellent imaging at all listening positions. Its large roll surround and textile dome diaphragm provides a flat frequency response above 30 KHz with outstanding off-axis dispersion. The unique AirCirc magnet system and its rear chamber eliminate any reflections and resonances.
The constant impedance crossover has been completely redesigned and hardwired with non-inductive capacitors for the tweeter part and high-end oil-filled capacitors for the woofer part with flat foil inductors used at the most critical places. All components are fastened with damping glue and remaining coils are baked to avoid any internal component and filter resonances. Resistors with high power handling capabilities offer lower noise and temperature stable performance, altogether resulting in perfect timing within the crossover and with low noise throughout the entire frequency range.
Cables, speaker connectors and internal damping.
Internal cabling is our own special design produced in Sweden. Solid pure copper core wrapped around a polypropylene core with polypropylene isolation, bounded with a high damping acoustic shield to minimize acoustic feedback. All components are carefully hand selected and individually tested for any deviances.
Speaker terminals are WBT Nextgen® connectors made of the highest grade silver plated copper with minimal copper mass for low energy storage lowering distortion and offering the purest contact to the speaker cable.
For internal acoustic damping we use real wool. Wool is the best material for internal acoustic damping but we need a small amount of syntetic fibre to get the right density.
All parts have one thing in common. Non-resonant behaviour from connector, cables, crossover, speaker drivers through the cabinet with the damping feet.
This suppresses disturbing noise, offering more and better dynamics with better silence between the tones thanks to the lower noise floor.
The Prestige Three presents a more relaxing sound with remaining details – nothing is added – just pure music!
