Quad Vena review


The Vena's a solid effort from Quad. Greater subtlety could turn it into a brilliant amp

Solid build aptX Bluetooth Potent, authoritative sound Deep, controlled bass Focused soundstage

Delivery lacks finesse

Nevertheless, the Vena is still an interesting proposition, not least because of the apparent shift by Quad to a more driven, potent sound. Whether this direction is taken with the company’s future products remains to be seen – but for now, Vena is a...

Quad Vena II Play


Following the Vena II integrated amplifier/DAC that received an Editor's Choice award for its updated feature set and dynamic and detailed sound when we saw it in HFC 448, it's hard not to be intrigued by the arrival of the new Vena II Play. Quad...

Quad Vena II


You'd be forgiven for wondering why Quad parent company IAG felt the need to upgrade its small-form Vena amp to Mk II status; after all, the original – launched back in 2014 – was good enough to take top honours in our mini-amp Group Test in November...

Quad Vena II Play Streaming Amplifier Review


Quad has taken its Vena II amplifier and added network functionality to create a product that is old school at the front and cutting edge at the back.

Excellent sound quality ; Comprehensive feature set ; Well priced ; Well made

DTS Play-Fi still a bit of a work in progress ; Phono stage good rather than great ; Grey finish might not be to everyone's taste

Good for money


I own it almost one year. Quad serves me in my home office room connected to bookshelves Dali speakers (Zensor 3). The source is either my laptop or iPhone. Both devices work smoothly with Quad Vena II. Since it is my second system or, in fact, the...

Quad amp is superb


Purchased to replace my Denon mini HiFi. I wanted a quality unit that would connect to my iMac to listen to internet radio and stored music files the Quad fulfils this requirement. It sounds brilliant on all inputs, phono, coaxial etc., playing into my...

Amazing amplifier. Great sound


Bought this amplifier last week and am really pleased with it. It has all the classic Quad characteristics- clarity, detail, excellent mid range and sound stage and looks great. No frills, just excellent simple features and it's WiFi and Bluetooth...
