We now have Quad’s new ‘Vena II Play’ wireless streaming amplifier in stock!

The QUAD Vena II Play is the latest addition to the best-selling QUAD Vena series of integrated amplifiers. It also heralds the arrival of wireless audio streaming and multi-room technology to the QUAD product portfolio. Based on the recent upgrade and richly specified Vena II, the QUAD Vena II Play incorporates the acclaimed DTS Play-Fi® platform.

With DTS Play-Fi® Technology, music can be streamed over your wireless network in high-resolution format and can be easily expanded to an ultimate multi-room system if required. You can stream from any source on your wireless network, including smart-phones, tablets or PCs as well as a NAS Drive.

The DTS Play-Fi® platform offers a wealth of music options from around the globe. Spotify, Tidal, HD Tracks, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster, KKBox and Sirius XM, to name a few. Browse a radio guide with thousands of stations and podcasts, or stream from a home media server with DLNA compatibility.

QUAD Vena II Play borrows more than just looks from its sibling, the Vena II – utilizing much of the same high-specification design, including the ES9018K2M from the Sabre32 Reference DAC as well as the aptX Bluetooth connectivity, it has all the pure musicality of QUAD coursing through its very versatile circuitry.

There is also a smattering of both digital and analogue connections, including an MM phono stage, for a turntable. So however you want to enjoy your music, analogue or digital, the QUAD Vena II Play will have you connected and ready to play.
