    Product Information

    The QUAD Artera Pre is a pure analog preamplifier, combining innovative modern British design with the QUAD sound signature traditions, characterised by the pure analog signal. The Artera Pre mixes minimalist design with high-quality components to ensure short, direct signal paths that preserve sonic purity.

    Styling
    The Artera crisp, clean aesthetic both evokes QUAD's past and looks forward to the future, with a textured aluminium fron 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.

    A Classic For The Modern Age
    • The Volume is digitally controlled in the analog domain.
    • The Sensitivity of each input can be adjusted +/-8dB.
    • Versatile in application - AUX3 can be configured for 'AV Bypass' for use with AV processor.
    • The return of the classic QUAD 'TILT' control allowing subtle changes to the overall frequency response to suit your own preference.
    • The Different EQ filters settings can be assigned to each input, featuring changes to the overall balance of the sound, bass cut and bass boost.
