For the first time in over a decade, we have a Quad Pre Amplifier with Tilt Control! Meet the new Quad Artera Pre. Built around the award winning Artera Solus chassis, the Artera Pre has four stereo RCA inputs (three line-level, one phono, plus one balanced XLR). There is also a Class A Phono Stage for Turntable fans and a Class A Headphone amp if you do your listening on headphones. 

Quad's Tilt control adjusts both ends of the frequency spectrum together, adjusting the overall balance of the sound to make it ‘warmer’ or ‘cooler’, without colouring the sound. Like a Bass and Treble control both being adjusted at the same time. You also get the option to get the option to assign individual EQ settings to each source. 

Available in Black or Silver and in stock with Quad now.
