Of all the British high-end hi-fi brands, Quad boasts the longest and most distinguished history. The company has been at the cutting edge of audio since 1936, continually pushing back the boundaries of performance with technologies both new and established. In 1953, the Quad II valve amplifier was launched, setting new standards for audio amplification, and three years later Quad invented the first full-range electrostatic speaker – later known as the legendary ESL 57.
Throughout the ensuing years, Quad products have continued to win worldwide acclaim, building a reputation for excellence that bears comparison with the most distinguished brands in any field. 80 years after its formation, Quad continues to be driven by the philosophy of its founder, Peter Walker, to produce “the closest approach to the original sound”. Its latest product line, Artera Series, incorporates a range of CD players and USB DACs that use state-of-the-art circuitry extending performance to ultra-high-resolution playback including the DSD audio format.
2016 is a huge milestone for the revered audio manufacturer as it marks its 80th anniversary. To celebrate 80 years of Quad, Native DSD has partnered with Quad to curate a selection of Audiophile music taking you on a unique journey through Jazz, Vocal, Guitar and Classical genres, in high-resolution DSD format.
