Product Description

Quad all-in-one hifi package incorporating the ESL 2812 electrostatic speakers with Artera stereo power amplifier and Play+ CD player, DAC and preamplifier.

ESL 2812

Quad ESL-2812 electrostatic loudspeakers are an update on the ESL-2805. The ESL-2812 are the latest in a long line of speakers that Quad are possibly best known for, back to the original ESL-57 that made its debut back in 1956.

Artera Power

From the transformer to the input terminals, Artera 140W RMS stereo power amp has been engineered from the ground up to ensure power, musicality and stability. Unfaltering performance thanks to patented Current Dumping technology and newly developed balanced XLR inputs with an incomparable signal to noise ratio.

Artera Play+

Artera Play CD player and DAC combines a sleek user interface with the latest high definition audio technology and is the perfect match for the high power drive of Artera Stereo. Features improved power supply and DAC (supports 32bit/384kHz and DSD files via USB) plus aptX bluetooth and discrete headphone output.
