Quad Artera Solus HiFi System with Quad S1 Speakers and Free QED Cables (worth over £100). Available with Online Finance and Free Delivery.
The Artera Solus combines a CD transport, DAC, preamplifier and power amplifier in a single compact chassis, with extensive connectivity options including Bluetooth wireless streaming. Despite its attractive simplicity, the Artera Solus sports cutting-edge sophistication beneath the skin. At its heart nestles the ES9018 Sabre32 Reference, the eminent 32-bit, eight-channel hybrid multi-bit Delta-Sigma DAC chipset, expertly implemented by Quad’s renowned electronics engineers. External sources benefit from this DAC’s exceptional quality via a range of digital inputs, handling PCM data up to 32-bit/384kHz as well as DSD64/128/256. This ensures the Artera Solus is fully equipped to make the most of today’s hi-res music formats, as well as future advances in ultra-high-definition digital sound. For CD replay, a slot-loading mechanism buffers data from the disc before feeding it to the asynchronous DAC section. Four digital filter options enable users to tailor the sound from both CDs and external digital sources, to suit personal taste and the nature of the source material.
The Quad S1 Speakers combine advanced Kevlar-coned bass/midrange drivers with a specially designed ribbon tweeter. Standing at 285mm, the Quad S1 houses a 100mm bass driver as well as a new ribbon tweeter designed specifically for the S series.
