Excerpt: It's been eight years since we first laid eyes on Quad 's 11L. That first generation was terrific, blitzing all-comers for a few years. We were less taken with the second-generation model, which improved on the original in some areas while losing balance in others.
Pros: Impressive neutrality, control and detail resolution, terrific build and finish, relatively unfussy about positioning
Cons: Presentation lacks the sparkle to truly engage the listener
