Artera Solus - Classic Quad performance for today's music lover
Despite its attractive simplicity, the Artera Solus delivers exceptional sophistication beneath its skin. The Artera Solus nestles the ESS Sabre32 9018; a 32-bit, eight-channel hybrid multi-bit Delta-Sigma DAC considered by many to be the finest D/A converter chip available for stereo sound.
Artera is Quad’s first series to utilise the ESS Sabre DAC, and external digital sources can benefit from its exceptional quality via a range of digital inputs. These include USB, with support for PCM data up to 32-bit/384kHz and also DSD64/128/256, ensuring the Artera Solus is fully equipped to make the most of today’s hi-res music formats, as well as future advances in ultra-high-definition digital sound.
While sharing the same CD player and hi-res DAC tech found within the Artera Play the Artera Solus adds aptX 4.0 Bluetooth streaming technology for for quick playback from mobile devices for those seeking the flexibility of wireless sound, as well as a 2 x 75 Watts power amplifier, all within the sleek, compact Artera Solus chassis.
