The Quad Vena II has been a top seller for us since launch, mainly because we love the sound of it so much! Now, the Vena II Play adds wireless Hi Res streaming with the Play Fi platform, making the Vena II Play a formidable little unit. 

Still very much a Quad looking and sounding product, just a little smarter. 

Available as a stand alone unit or in a bundle with the Quad S1 or S2 speakers.
