The QUAD Artera Pre is a pure analogue preampliﬁer, combining innovative modern British design with the QUAD sound signature traditions, characterized by the pure analogue signal. The Artera Pre mixes minimalist design with high-quality components to ensure short, direct signal paths that preserve sonic purity.
The Artera’s complete range includes 5 models: Artera Stereo (power amplifier), Artera Pre (pre-amplifier), Artera Play+ (CD Player / DAC / Preamp), Artera Solus (CD Player / DAC / Preamp / Power amplifier / Bluetooth Connectivity) and the Artera Solus Play (as the standard Solus but with wireless audio streaming and multi room technology)
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.
The Artera range combines the qualities that have made Quad one of Britain’s most revered hi-fi marques for many decades with fresh industrial design and the very latest high-performance audio technologies.
Artera’s crisp, clean aesthetic both evokes Quad’s past and looks forward to the future, with a textured aluminium front panel, thick glass top and CNC-routed heat sinks on either side. The housing provides a rugged structure that resists interference from external vibrations, while the fascia of each player incorporates an intuitive touch-sensitive control, contributing greatly to its sleek design.
