Make High-End Two-Channel Simple and Magnificent: One-Box Quad Artera Solus Integrated Amplifier and CD Player Includes 32-Bit/384kHz DAC, XLR Outputs, and More

Quad Artera Solus makes high-end two-channel audio as simple as can be imagined. A Class AB integrated amplifier stacked with user-friendly connectivity and filter settings, the multi-tasking specialist includes a built-in CD player, superb 32-bit/384kHz DAC, aptX Bluetooth for high-quality wireless performance, and a power amplifier ready to drive your speakers to pleasing levels. Two balanced XLR outputs, a USB-B input for computers, headphone output, and two RCA inputs speak to its ability to jibe with most any set-up imaginable. Whether you stream or spin, Artera Solus has your back.

Being a Quad, it also arrives built to deliver expressive sound marked by detail, definition, and dynamics with any format you choose to play. Compatible with high-res files up to DSD256, the 75Wpc Artera Solus also addresses physical discs via a slot-loading mechanism that buffers data in advance of it hitting the DAC section to further reduce jitter. And while the 26.1-pound component's sleek looks, aluminum front panel, glass top plate, and touchscreen display show off its obvious visual merits, less obvious to the naked eye is a robust toroidal transformer that helps account for its full-bodied sonics. A solid remote control and our 100% Music Direct Guarantee round out a convenient, one-box solution true to Quad's prestigious heritage.
