The QUAD Artera Solus Play is the latest addition to the best-selling QUAD Artera series. It also heralds the arrival of wireless audio streaming and multi-room technology to the established QUAD Artera portfolio.

With DTS Play-Fi® Technology, music can be streamed over your wireless network in high-resolution format and can be easily expanded to an ultimate multi-room system if required. You can stream from any source on your wireless network, including smart-phones, tablets or PCs as well as a NAS Drive.

You can stream from any source on your wireless network, including smart-phones, tablets or PCs as well as a NAS Drive. All of this is in addition to traditional hi-fi functionality of the Artera Solus Play as an all-in-one Bluetooth aptX receiver / CD player / DAC / Preamp and integrated amplifier.
The DTS Play-Fi® platform offers a wealth of music options from around the globe. Spotify, Tidal, Qobuz, HD Tracks, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster, KKBox and Sirius XM, to name a few. Browse a radio guide with thousands of stations and podcasts, or stream from a home media server with DLNA compatibility.
QUAD Artera Solus Play borrows more than just looks from its sibling, the Artera Solus – utilizing much of the same high-specification design, including the ESS ES9018 from the Sabre32 Reference DAC as well as the aptX Bluetooth connectivity, it has all the pure musicality of QUAD coursing through its very versatile circuitry.
