Designed by Tim DeParavicini, the Quad II-Eighty takes inspiration from the original Quad II amplifier. It is an 80-Watt mono power amplifier following in the tradition and philiosophies of Peter Walker. The output section consists of 4 KT88 valves running as two pairs in push pull with the hallmark Quad topology of partial cathode loading in the output transformer.
With KT-66 output valves on the Classic Integrated / II Classic and KT-88 on the II-forty / II-eighty, the push-pull configuration is visually stunning, even when safely secured within the cage that protects them. The output characteristic is a superbly refined sound, matched with both classic and contemporary loudspeakers.

The amplifiers had to retain the retro look of its famous predecessor but with the transformer and power amplifier sections blended into a modern compact design. It has an understated elegance which lies beneath its smooth curves and lustrous finish, referencing the time when vacuum tubes ruled the electronics industry and Peter Walker was considered by many to be the master of audiophile design.

All Quad products are expected to last a lifetime - even longer. Many Quad customers still derive immense pleasure listening to products built only fifty years ago. The new Quad II Classic Integrated amplifier is no exeption, and with periodic servicing and a caring hand you can expect its performance to continue for years to come.
