99 series the closest approach to the original

it is so much better in terms of high fidelity in its purest sense it reminded me how quad retain an almost unique grip on the concept ­ noel keywood hi-fi world the closest approach since peter walker formed the company in 1936 all quad products have displayed an originality in design born from a full and proper understanding of every aspect of sound reproduction a world leader in audio amplifier and electrostatic speaker design quad has over the years made a major contribution to the improvement of sound quality this contribution has been recognised by awards from around the world including the queen s award for technological achievement in 1978 quad owners enjoy the confidence of knowing that the complete system has been engineered to achieve optimal performance free from compatibility problems the history of quad is one of technical achievement in the field of sound reproduction it is a story that began with the quad 1 amplifier which brought the benefits of 15 years knowledge

for those with a penchant for a spot of mozart or an `it s been a long day wind-down with some ella or bird the quads are hard to beat ­ what hi-fi sound vision 99 series quad sound systems have always been able to give their owners the utmost pleasure and passion when they listen to music but now the 99 series brings more conceived as a fully integrated component system there is an assurance of absolute compatibility and the convenience offered by the high levels of intelligence exhibited in the control system each component within the 99 series is one of the finest examples of such available today excessively over-engineered in every respect ­ highly specified the 99 cd-p combined with the 99 stereo power amplifier and the 11l loudspeakers is a perfect entry to quad and a stunning system in every respect transformers audiophile components multi-layer circuit boards and the most advanced software appear in abundance throughout the system our reputation however is based upon

the 99 series is timeless in design and quality newer models such as the multiple award-winning cd-p and timeless classics such as the 909 which is still winning awards to this day ensure that when you choose quad you invest in a piece of audio equipment that will not only last a lifetime but will retain as much value and relevance for future generations as well

99 cd-p the 99 cd-p is an exceptional cd player ­ without doubt one of the finest and most advanced machines available it uses a stateof-the-art transport and dac and incorporates both fixed and variable level outputs so it can be used both with a preamplifier or to maintain the very cleanest signal path directly into a power amplifier the transport has a remarkable specification with an ultra-smooth servo to dramatically reduce `clock jitter the three laser pickup reads the disc with exceptional accuracy ensuring transparency and neutrality in reproduction the very latest 24 bit/192 khz upsampling crystal dac produces breathtaking detail and resolution opening a window to the recording to squeeze out every last subtle effect and sensation six digital inputs three coaxial and thee optical allow other sources to benefit from the on-board dacs and in certain applications negate the need for a preamplifier altogether 99 cd-s the 99 cd-s is a brand new model offering a similar level of
