Equipped for the modern music lover, yet still classically QUAD, Vena packs plenty of digital and wireless music playback options into an integrated amplifier that delivers 45 watts per channel in style. In our signature lancaster grey or wrapped in a combination of gloss or veneer wood casings combining a classic QUAD sound in this new modern package is creating a buzz with both audiophiles and those who want the convenience of bluetooth without sacrificing sound quality. Two analogue inputs are mirrored with a variety of digital options from Optical and Coaxial to USB plus the unusual inclusion of direct linking to iPhone, iPad and iPod digital outputs using the standard A type USB connector. Vena’s high resolution DAC is enabled for sampling frequency capable of 24-bit resolution. In addition any Bluetooth equipped source can link to Vena wirelessly with optimum sound quality ensured by the innovative aptX codec. Vena’s loudspeaker output (45W per channel into 8 ohms) is matched by a front panel headphone socket. Digital Optical and Coax outputs in addition to an analogue Preamp out make Vena a truly versatile control unit. Remote control of volume and input selection is available from the included handset. In one neat package Quad Vena provides the necessary amplification to realise the highest quality of both digital and analogue music sources through any partnering loudspeakers or headphones. And, of course, you can expect the legendary Quad sound performance through the precision engineering that has been the hallmark of Quad since 1936.
