For CD replay, a new slot-loading mechanism buffers data from the disc before feeding it asynchronously (in order to minimise time domain errors known as ‘jitter’) to the DAC section. Four digital filter options enable users to tailor the Artera Play’s sound, with both CDs and external digital sources, to suit personal taste and the nature of the source material.

As well as offering analogue inputs plus both optical and coaxial digital inputs it is posible to enjoy your music with the Quad Artera Play offering ultra-high resolution playback up to 32bit/384kHz in addition to DSD64/128/256 files through the USB input.

It forms a highly capable and flexible two box system when partnered with the matching Artera power amplifier.
