At Quad we are music lovers too and ‘The Closest approach to the original sound’ has been a Quad philosophy since 1936. More than just a slogan, it underlies the company’s commitment to producing the finest audio equipment, capable of reproducing all the elements and emotion of a live performance. This ethos has been considered when building our new integrated amplifier from the ground-up.
Vena has captured the essence of advanced Quad engineering in a world of modern technology. Whilst retaining the original design philosophy, users now have access to digital inputs including Bluetooth playback, in a compact amplifier without compromise on sound. Both Quad loudspeakers and electronics are known for their transparency, accuracy and natural reproduction of your music - Quad Vena is no different.
The Quad Vena is available in a variety of finishes to complement your Quad loudspeakers and living space. A choice of high-gloss piano-style finishes in white or black, figured sapele mahogany wood or an ultra-clean gun-metal grey finish are available.
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.
