Quad Artera Play Plus CD / USB / Pre Amp with Quad Stereo Power Amplifier and Quad S-5 Speakers, saving over £500 plus Free QED Cables -  Available with Online Finance and Free Delivery

Combining a sleek user interface with the latest high definition audio technology Artera Play+ CD player and DAC with aptX Bluetooth is the perfect match for the high power drive of Artera Stereo. Enjoy your music with ultra-high resolution playback up to 32bit/384kHz in addition to DSD64/128/256 files through the USB input.

Behind the simply beautiful fascia lies a wealth of hidden technology that comprises a fully capable Digital/Analogue preamplifier that can handle ultra-high resolution playback up to 32bit/384kHz in addition to DSD64/128/256 files through the USB input. A new slot-loading CD mechanism buffers data read from the disc before feeding it asynchronously, for minimum jitter, to the powerful ESS9018 8 channel DAC chip.

The QUAD Artera Series' styling incorporates a completely fresh design approach while still staying true to QUAD’s legendary tradition and functionality. With textured aluminium front panels, thick glass top and CNC routed heatsinks either side, the Artera's housing offers a beautiful yet rugged structure, which also deters any unwanted vibration interference. The front panel of the Artera Play is finished with an ultra-intuitive touch-sensitive control, with quick access to playing your prized music collection.

From the transformer to the input terminals, each section of the Artera has been engineered from the ground up to ensure power, musicality and stability. The Artera Stereo produces 140 Watts RMS per channel – ample power for driving first-class loudspeakers, unfaltering even under high dynamic and transient conditions thanks to the patented Current Dumping technology. Special attention has also been paid to the newly developed balanced XLR inputs. The robust connections are yet another string to the Artera Stereo's bow, with an incomparable signal to noise ratio.

Quad S Series loudspeakers - Sporting a new ribbon treble unit aligned, through sophisticated crossover networks, to Quad’s advanced bass-midrange drivers, each and every loudspeaker in the range delivers all the nuances and passion of the original performance.

Inc. QED interconnect cable and a pair of QED speaker cables with gold plugs fitted.
