Artera Solus
The new Quad Artera Solus is available now from Kingscote Audio. This is a seriously well-built and stylish unit combining a CD transport, DAC, pre-amplifier, and power amplifier in a single compact chassis, with extensive connectivity options including Bluetooth. We’ve tried this unit with some very expensive speakers and it sounds truly amazing for the price. At £1500 you might match the Artera Solus with speakers costing from £500 to £1500, and doing that would reap great rewards, but you can keep on improving your speakers and the Artera Solus keeps giving at a performance way above its price point. We think this unit is a true Hi-Fi bargain that will just keep on satisfying you. Quad Artera Solus in Black or Silver - £1,499
