Artera sets a new standard of hi-fi electronics by QUAD. We have crafted our new power amplifier – Quad Artera Stereo - and Control unit/CD Player – Quad Artera Play - with some of the latest high-definition audio technologies: state of the art DAC chips, DSD file processing and more.
Creating an experience for the modern living room has been the primary focus of Artera Series. However, it wouldn’t be QUAD without referencing a heritage of manufacturing audio equipment since 1936. 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, first pioneered in the QUAD 405.
As you would expect, the Artera Play beautifully complements the sonic realism and power of Artera Stereo. 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. Each model is available in both black and silver to match seamlessly with your living room.
