Amplifiers - Quad Amplifiers: Quad Vena II Play Wireless Streaming Integrated Amplifier

£799.95 

The QUAD Vena II Play is the latest addition to the best-selling QUAD Vena series of integrated amplifiers.

Based on the recent upgrade and richly specified Vena II, the QUAD Vena II Play incorporates the acclaimed DTS Play-Fi® platform.

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.
