More Information



The history of Quad is one of technical achievement in the field of sound reproduction. It is a story that began with their first amplifier, which applied fifteen years of knowledge and experience in professional audio and industrial products to the task of making the most accurate domestic audio amplifier of its age.

Every product in the Quad portfolio of amplifiers, headphones, moving-coil loudspeakers and electrostatic loudspeakers have received international acclaim. However, Quad has never indulged in technical one-upmanship. Their technology exists for a purpose that has remained constant over the years - to reproduce music in a form that is the closest approach to the original.

Unilet Sound & Vision are one of the longest-established official Quad dealers in the UK, and one of only a handful of dealers for Quad Electrostatics in the entire country.
