Overview & Features

Equipped for the modern music lover, yet still classically QUAD, Vena packs plenty of digital and wireless music playback options into an integrated amplifier that delivers 45 watts per channel in style. In our signature lancaster grey or wrapped in a combination of gloss or veneer wood casings combining a classic QUAD sound in this new modern package is creating a buzz with both audiophiles and those who want the convenience of bluetooth without sacrificing sound quality.


The Closest Approach, Since 1936

As we all know, the way music is consumed in the present day has expanded from vinyl and CD into realms of streaming and wireless connections, controlled by the latest smart-tablet technology. The convenience of accessing a digital library, filled with a lifetime’s worth of music is everything every music lover aspires to.


At Quad we are music lovers too and ‘The Closest approach to the original sound’ has been a Quad philosophy since 1936. More than just a slogan, it underlies the company’s commitment to producing the finest audio equipment, capable of reproducing all the elements and emotion of a live performance. This ethos has been considered when building our new integrated amplifier from the ground-up.


A Classic, Yet Modern Experience

Drawing from our hi-fi heritage, yet in a modern era of music consumption, we are proud to introduce Vena - a new user-friendly amplifier designed to be the perfect match to an amazingly wide variety of digital and analogue sources.


Vena has captured the essence of advanced Quad engineering in a world of modern technology. Whilst retaining the original design philosophy, users now have access to digital inputs including Bluetooth playback, in a compact amplifier without compromise on sound. Both Quad loudspeakers and electronics are known for their transparency, accuracy and natural reproduction of your music - Quad Vena is no different.


Combine Style and Sound

Vena encapsulates advanced engineering and sound quality inside a neat package that is bound to find favour with today’s space conscious listeners. In typical quad style, the simple fascia is dominated by a large volume control with an array of push buttons providing input selection.


The Quad Vena is available in a variety of finishes to complement your Quad loudspeakers and living space. A choice of high-gloss piano-style finishes in white or black, figured sapele mahogany wood or an ultra-clean gun-metal grey finish are available.


Award Winning Design

Vena's unique approach and completely refreshing balance between retro hi-fi and modern wireless technology has captured the imagination of the hi-fi press, also winning in group tests comparing, quality, design, features and of course, sound.
