The Quested Lifestyle

CLASS LEADING

Quested speakers are designed with engineering at the forefront – No gimmicks and no quick fixes. The sonic characteristics of the driver design and the cabinet loading are optimised first, electronics are then paired to perfectly match the speakers’ requirements.

Smooth midrange and high frequency is delivered with the use of soft dome drivers in our studio range. This was an area that Quested pioneered during the early days of studio monitor designs. Powerful low frequency and sub bass that delivers clean yet not overpowering bass response to below 20 Hz depending on system resource and configuration. 

These design principles allows for a very transparent and open sound stage to be reproduced with no false or forced frequencies colouring the output of the speaker. What goes in electronically comes out acoustically. Due to the very natural sound, many engineers and producers find they can mix over long sessions without feeling fatigued. With such detailed accuracy mixes easily translate your work from the smallest earbuds to the largest speaker systems.

The philosophy of how we tune and design our speakers has allowed Quested to form some lifelong associations with some of the most respected names in terms of recording, broadcasting and artist owned studios around the world. The diverse references are again a testament to the quality and ability of the monitor’s core job, to produce a reference that allows everyone’s mixes to translate across genre and playback mediums.

A Rich Heritage

Quality, craftsmanship, support

Every speaker produced by Quested is hand built by our dedicated team. All our speakers are tested and measured during the building process. The final, critical test after recorded measurements is by ear against our house reference systems.

The electronic elements of our systems meet with the same scrutiny as the acoustic elements. They are hand built and tested during the various stages of construction to ensure all components are within our specified tolerances.

Working in partnership with clients and consultants means that we are often designing bespoke systems to meet the needs of a particular room or special project, from large commercial facilities to private residential studios looking for a unique finish. Artists, producers, DJs, broadcasters and record labels come to Quested when they’re searching for the solution to their monitoring needs.    

Pride in what we do means that from the smallest of speakers to the largest of custom systems, any product with the Quested badge guarantees hand built quality and a lifetime of experience.

 

 

Craftmanship

Reputation, trust, loyalty 

The reputation, trust and loyalty Quested has built up during more than 30 years in business means that recommendation is how most people find us. We believe in you being the judge. Tell us what you need and we will recommend a solution that really works.  

Over the past three decades, we have been privileged to work on some amazing projects and with some incredible artists. We are very proud to be associated with them and that they continue to turn to Quested as their choice of reference when making music.

Constantly working on new projects, researching new technologies and with investment in our team, Quested still grows its business in an organic way. Our founder, Roger Quested, continues to oversee research and development and recent additions to the management team, who share Roger’s original founding principles, ensure Quested will continue to do what it’s always does best.

We’re looking forward to the next thirty years of history
