-Quad Artera Play CD Player/Pre Amplifier
The Quad Artera Play CD/Pre Amplifier has gained a lot of attention from the industry, and there's a fair few reasons why. It's an easy-to-use pre-amplifier that's perfect for living rooms. Using the Artera is rather easy as the interface provides all the options upfront.
Offering ultra-high resolution playback up to 32 bit/384kHz along with DSD64/128/256 files, this Pre Amplifier competes with all other products in this price point. Using DSD file processing, state-of-the-art DAC chips, and other high-definition audio technologies, the pre amplifier does everything you will need to take your system to the next level. The front panel includes ultra-intuitive touch-sensitive control to provide effortless access to your music collection.
It comes with a slot-loading CD mechanism along with the capability to read buffer data from the disc-done before feeding it in order to avoid any last-minute performance jitters. Textured aluminum panels design the front, while CNC routed heatsinks and a thick glass top grace either sides to complete an unfussy design. The housing unit does not do anything dramatic but impresses with its sturdiness, sporting a rugged look, preventing interference of any unwanted vibration.
I would just like to thank the Bartlett's team for pulling out all the stops when an order failed to materialise through no fault of their own. Terrific service and would certainly shop with Bartlett's again.
Firstly delivery was estimated at 7-11 days - it was actually delivered by courier the next day (Free). Item was an excellent price and although it was advertised as used - it was absolutely mint. This is what internet buying should be like - well done all at Bartletts!
If I could give Bartlett's 10 stars I would....Quite superb service (a special mention for Simon here) - Buy from this supplier with complete confidence.
