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 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.
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.
