For the QC Twenty Four pre amp, our designer scoured the globe for the very finest components, with possibly the best example of this being the new 'old stock' 6111WA double triode.
With transformers designed by one of the world's leading authorities and relay input switching the musical signal is preserved in its purest form - pursuant to the philosophy of the theoretical perfect amplifier which Peter Walker himself stated is, 'a straight wire with gain'. The QC Twenty Four has 2 main outputs, 2 Tape Play and Record connections and inputs for CD, Tuner, Aux 1, Aux 2 and an optional Phono port.
A Truly Iconic Amplifier
Designed by Quad founder Peter Walker, the truly iconic Quad II helped to define the modern concept of high-fidelity sound in the 1950s. Quad has kept the legend alive with the current Quad II classic, a faithful reproduction of the original valve monoblock with build quality and aesthetics lovingly updated for the modern era. The new version takes this a step further, with the development of additional, pre, power and integrated models. (Pictured: Original Quad II Amplifier as designed by Peter Walker).
The Quad II Series circuit design is the work of Tim de Paravicini, a man widely acknowledged to be the UK's foremost valve amp designer. His design is faithful to Peter Walker's Philosophy of cathode loading onto the same output stage and fundamental simplicity of design, ensuring the new amp delivers the same wealth of detail and exquisite tone as its famous predecessor.
