Quad Vena II System Pack

Quad Vena II Integrated Amplifier

Digital to Analogue Converter

The Vena II features a significant upgrade to the DAC chip, using a Sabre32 Reference ES9018K2M, benefitting from the chip’s 32-bit Hyperstream architecture and time domain jitter eliminator for ultra-low noise and high dynamic range delivery. For hi-res playback, the Vena II supports up to 32-bit/384 kHz resolution, as well as DSD 256, to get the best from today’s music formats.

Analogue Stage

Class AB amplification in the Vena II draws on Quad’s years of design experience. An upgraded power supply with a new 200VA toroidal transformer is followed by a 30000µF reservoir capacity, in order for the amplifier to perform with superb dynamic range, whilst maintaining an excellent hold over the music. The Vena II contains an additional Moving Magnet phono stage, to enable flawless vinyl playback through the amplifier, using low noise JFET circuitry with precise RIAA equalisation, for more flexibility with the Vena II.

The layout of the Vena II’s internal layout is arranged to minimise noise interference helps the amplifier excel sonically at the price point, with a detailed and refined performance.

Connectivity

The Quad Vena II features a variety of connections for seamless integration into your hi-fi system. Inputs include digital coaxial and optical, as well as USB for hi-res file playback, and three RCA analogue inputs, including the MM phono stage for turntables. Bluetooth wireless streaming is available with supported aptX codec to allow you to stream music directly from your smartphone or tablet via your favourite music streaming service. The Vena II forms a smart, feature packed amplifier, yet remains compact in size.

Quad S-1 Bookshelf Speakers

The Quad S-1 bookshelf speakers are known for creating a focused soundstage, and give you the ability to enjoy your music or films with sound quality normally associated with floor-standing speakers. The 2-way bookshelf speaker's vertical dispersion helps in delivering optimum performance by eliminating ceiling and floor reflection, a Horizontal Arc helps to maintain quality via controlled directivity.

Using a sandwich-like construction, the tweeter used in the Quad S-1 delivers high-range amplification. The Ribbon Tweeter can function as a Sound Radiator and a Voice Coil because it is surrounded by a powerful magnetic feed. For maintaining integrity of sound and ensuring articulate rendition, these speakers come equipped with ABR Bass extension at the rear panel. The Quad S-1 Bookshelf Speaker use MDF and high-density particleboard for eliminating issues like panel-induced disturbances and unwanted resonance.
