Quad Elite Integrated Amplifier is a newer addition to Quad's impressive Elite range, unveiled at the Munich High End Hi-Fi Show 2011 and due for release later in the year. The Quad Elite Integrated takes as much as possible from the Elite Pre and Elite Power Amp to form a stunning single box integrated amp.
The Elite Integrated forms a high end heart of any system, and a great deal of work has taken place to enhance its musical transparency beyond that of the 99 series components that precede it. This is achieved by careful component selection and re-tuning of the signal path, whilst maintaining the advanced facilities that are unique to Quad’s solid-state range.
This new model is a perfect partner for the Quad Elite CDS CD Player and indeed any other music sources including high res or standard audio PC or Mac, your turntable, DVD or Blu Ray player, Sky, and much more.
About Quad Elite
Individually, each Elite component has been engineered to perform at the top of its class. Combine them to form a complete high-performance music system and the standard they set is higher still. Their smart, understated looks and compact dimensions are both practical and pleasing to the eye, while Quad’s proprietary Quad Link and Amp Bus technologies ensure perfect synergy between every Elite component, optimising sound quality and simplifying system connectivity and control.
The Quad Link system bus is used to connect the Elite CDS CD player and Elite FM tuner to the Elite Integrated amplifier. It carries the audio signal in fully balanced form, plus system commands enabling all three components to be controlled via a single remote handset. Similarly, Amp Bus delivers balanced audio and control signals between the Elite Integrated and Elite Stereo power amplifier if you choose to add the latter as an upgrade.
