Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Enjoy award-winning sound combined with flawless music streaming and multi-room capability, with the Quad Vena II Play.

The compact amp that does even more
The Vena II already packs a lot in, but the Vena II Play takes it even further. With DTS Play-Fi built-in, you get seamless music streaming and multi-room potential. A built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) provides digital connectivity. Analogue inputs include a connection dedicated to your turntable. Direct streaming from your smartphone or other device is also possible, thanks to the Bluetooth link. There’s also a top quality headphone output. Everything you need in an amp is right here.

DTS Play-Fi for effortless music streaming
DTS Play-Fi is a premium, wireless control system that brings everything under one 'roof'. Download the free app from the Apple Store (iOS), Google Play (Android), Kindle Fire or for your Windows PC and get started on streaming all your favourite music. You not only get access to Internet radio but also popular music apps such as Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon Music and Napster. It’s all here, for near limitless music.

Make sense of multi-room
As well as bringing all your streaming sources together, Play-Fi offers the potential for full multi-room music. Simply add other Play-Fi compatible sources and you'll quickly be able to build up a comprehensive music system around your home - all under the control of a single app.

Quad quality sound
With decades of top quality audio experience, the Quad Vena II Play sounds every bit the award-winner it is. An upgraded toroidal transformer and high output capacitors give the Vena II Play firm control and excellent dynamic range. Whatever the music, the Quad’s 45 watts per channel delivers a ‘wall of sound’ that makes you feel the performers are in the room with you.

Playback your Hi-Res music files
With the superb ESS Sabre32 Reference DAC at its heart, the Vena II Play effortlessly handles your hi-res music files. Use the USB digital input and the Vena II Play decodes right up to studio quality 32-bit/384kHz and DSD256. With the optical and coaxial inputs, the hi-res music capacity is a still impressive 24-bit/192kHz – the usual standard for most hi-res music files.

Digital connectivity
Helping you make the most of your hi-res and digital components, the Vena II Play features an array of digital socketry. Choose between USB, coaxial and optical for your inputs – ideal for your computer, TV, Blu-ray/DVD/CD player, network streamer and many other devices with a digital output.

Bluetooth for direct, wireless connection
For direct wireless streaming, the Vena II Play also comes with built-in Bluetooth. Compatible with aptX, the Vena II Play offers the potential for high quality Bluetooth streaming. Simply pair with your smartphone, tablet or other device and stream your stored music and favourite music services, such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music – without needing a wi-fi signal.

Connect analogue sources
The Vena II Play hasn’t forgotten about your analogue sources. Twin RCA inputs are perfect for plugging in sources such as a tuner, cassette player or any other source with an analogue output. With its pre-amp outputs, you can also connect up a more powerful, larger power amp, should you choose.

Vinyl doesn’t take a back seat
Quad have fitted with the Vena II Play with a phono input; letting you connect up Moving Magnet cartridge equipped turntables. This isn’t just any old phono input, though. The low-noise, JFET-based circuit with precise RIAA equalisation gets the very best from your turntable’s sound. Low distortion and a wide frequency response mean you get to hear the most subtle details with crystalline clarity.

Superior quality headphone output
Like the phono pre-amp, the headphone output is carefully and skilfully developed in its own right, rather than being an afterthought. The Vena II Play features a dedicated headphone amp with current-feedback circuitry and wide bandwidth. This gives you a sound that’s much more powerful and three-dimensional than you’d usually get with most standard headphone outputs. It also drives a wide range of headphones with ease – even if they’re current-hungry designs.

Smart good looks
Striking the perfect balance between retro and minimalism, the Vena II Play is a design classic. The standard ‘Lancaster Grey’ blends with a wide range of components and speakers. At just 313mm wide, it also has a smaller footprint than most of its rivals, making it easier to fit tighter spaces.

Combine all your amp and streaming needs in one, with the talented Quad Vena II Play.
