Cube Audio launches Qualio IQ floorstanding speakers
Qualio IQ floorstanders consist of a low-frequency module based on a 9.5-inch Satori woofer and an open dipole section with a Mundorf AMT super tweeter and an SB Acoustic Satori midrange with an Egyptian papyrus cone. This pair of speakers is mounted on a thick acrylic plate – the solid mass and low resonance of the material are good for sound, and the complete transparency gives the design a unique look.
The Qualio IQ speakers are presented as a separate project. Their availability was promised in December 2022. The circulation, apparently, is small: the manufacturer, the team of the Polish company Cube Audio, complains about the difficulties with the supply of Mundorf AMT super tweeters.
However, the production of Qualio IQ depends on many components: in addition to a set of speakers, these are also Mundorf crossover components, high-quality ribbon coreless inductors, WTB pure copper terminals (two pairs, one for the super tweeter).
As a result, the system plays from 30 Hz to 31 kHz, it is promised “accurate highs and realistic mids, combined with fast, tight and deep bass.” As for the appearance, there are at least seven options for finishing the low-frequency cabinet with a glossy or matte surface. The transparent top panel goes well with any of them.
The full European debut of the Qualio IQ will take place at the Bristol Show 2023 (February 24-26). For European buyers, a pair of Qualio IQ is offered for 4,512.20 euros.
