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.

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.
• Low noise Class A phono stage which can be configured for moving magnet or moving coil.
