Quad are a highly renowned manufacturer of quality hifi electronics and loudspeakers, having developed award-winning audiophile-standard products standard for over 80 years, their highly acclaimed reputation is well-earned. The company originally built speakers for public address, moving onto domestic hifi following the end of the war. The first commercially available products were the Quad 22 Pre-amp and Quad II Monoblock Power Amplifiers, both of which were on the market for ten years to great success.
Quad now develop a wide range of hifi products at varying price points, such as the S Series, Z Series, Electrostatic Series of loudspeakers and accompanying amplifier ranges the Vena and QII Series. Quad also build a range of Active Loudspeakers. Quad continue to win the hearts of critics and consumers alike with each release and each product bears the same original design philosophy set out by founder Peter J. Walker; to design and engineer a product that offers 'the most accurate' sound response for the best price.
Quad's QII (or 'Quad 2') series is based on the original Quad II amplifier, built by the company's founder Peter Walker in 1953, but now seeing the integration of finer components and materials, more intricate yet effective circuit integrations and a more precise manufacturing process. The QII series features some of the most refined sounding valve pre/power combinations on the market today, retaining the genuine heritage and craftsmanship that Quad have preserved over 80 years of designing and engineering quality hifi.
The Quad II Classic is a monoblock power amplifier, based around the design principles and sophistication of the original 1950s Quad II. A newly developed chassis allows for more room internally for the much larger componentry that the Classic is comprised of. The internals of the Classic are wired by hand and follow a similar topology to the original Quad II power amp. Featuring KT66 output valves, a highly refined and efficient 15 watts per channel is achieved.
