The new model Quest QSA200i: When size and sound means everything
The headline to this story says it all, but some users may be asking the question, what was wrong with the old one? The Quest QSA200 was always considered a great little powered speaker package. Featuring full-range hi-fi sound, rotatable top end wave-guide, plenty of power and a range of handy accessories. Lots of them made their way into a multiplicity of compact monitor/mini FOH roles in both rentals and installation. The retail public liked them as well. Musicians and DJs purchased them for a variety of applications when ultra-small good-sounding monitor boxes that could take a hammering were needed.
Well the QSA 200 just got a whole lot more pro with the introduction of an updated model, the Quest QSA200i. The price hasn’t of course; they’re still priced at the base-end of the pro-products market, but a complete revision has seen a number of improvements with the new Quest factory aiming high.
The new QSA200i is the first of a new range of powered speakers to emerge from the new Quest factory and it’s a real indicator of things to come. It’s not just a restyling job, a newly developed top-end driver and an improved power amplifier, as well as multiple inputs, give the new QSA200i more versatility, and the addition of the integral stand fittings and extra rigging points make this box even better for rental and installation applications.
A very smart looking protective transit cover, which can be left on the box during operation, makes this quite a unique and functional package. It certainly has a lot to live up to. A famous Australian audio industry magazine reviewed the old model, placing it up there with competitors twice the price, so the new QSA200i will certainly be the one to beat, if you’re looking for a micro-powered package that fills a silence hole without making too much of a hole in your bank account.
