Quad Elite Integrated Amplifier
The Quad Elite Integrated combines the Elite Pre and Stereo into a single Chassis.
A musical experience
Each Elite component has been designed to deliver the best possible user experience. The build quality is solid, the controls simple and the sound carefully tuned to maximize musical enjoyment. The natural, uncomplicated sonic scale, pace and dynamics that made the 99 series so highly ranked remain intact with now even greater determination to deliver the most captivating musical performance possible, while maintaining competitive prices throughout the range. QUAD products have always been about the musical experience, first and foremost, and this has never been better illustrated than through the performance of the Elite series.
Accuracy and clarity
Using quality components, highly specified transformers, multi-layer circuit boards and the most advanced software available, the design is based on the classic Quad sounds of accuracy and clarity.
Framed in a modern aluminum chassis design constructed with superior class alloy and finished in deep gray with a matte black front panel, Elite stays true to Quad's bold yet elegant signature aesthetic.
Your missing link
The Quad Link system bus can be used to connect Elite CD players and the Elite FM tuner to the Elite Pre-Amplifier stage. It carries the audio signal in fully balanced form, plus system commands that allow all components to be controlled via a single remote handset. Similarly, Amp Bus delivers balanced audio and control signals between the Elite Integrated, Pre-Amplifier, Elite Stereo or Elite Mono Power Amplifiers. Several power amplifiers can be chain-damped via Amp Bus, which allows the user to bi-amp or even tri-amp with ease. All Elite components (except Elite FM) also have conventional RCA sockets for connection to components from other brands.
