Quad Qii Forty (pair)
The Quad II-forty power amplifier is much more than a tribute to one of the most famous designs in audio – but refined and powerful in the modern sense of the terms. Although the circuit topology has changed a little from the original, significantly better components and a brand new transformer design have been engineered. While still being delicately balanced a fast, crisp and detailed sound is achieved, whilst producing an output current suitable for modern loudspeakers, including our very own ESL. KT-88 output valves work in a push-pull configuration, while a choice of 4 Ohm or 8 Ohm taps allows for a wide choice of loudspeaker configurations.
The Artera’s complete range includes 3 models: Artera Stereo (power amplifier), Artera Play (CD Player / DAC / Preamp) and the Artera Solus (CD Player / DAC / Preamp / Power amplifier / Bluetooth Connectivity)
Each Artera Series model fuses modern digital connectivity with signature Quad amplification technologies. Styled with grace, influenced by classic Quad systems with a modern twist, each Quad Artera system is a beauty to look at, while demonstrating a life-like detail in every track.
