QUAD is proud to introduce the 9AS, based on the mini-monitor concept of the deservedly popular QUAD 9L. The 9AS is a brand new active monitor design featuring a new treble unit with associated waveguide front plate and the QUAD woven kevlar bass unit both driven by low distortion clas ab amplifiers via a sophisticated crossover network. The built-in amplification includes USB, digital and analogue inputs.
The amplifier can be controlled by discrete touch sensors, with associated indicators on the front panel just below the magnetic grille. A simple swipe across the volume strip will immediately adjust the volume, or you can touch to set the volume at a particular level. This can also be adjusted with the remote control.
Additionally, versatility in positioning has been engineered into the design - a rear panel switch offers bass EQ suitable for free standing, desk mount and wall mounting, providing the perfect balance where ever you wish to use the speakers. Optional foot extension tilts the speakers up if you wish to use them on your computer desk too.
An ultra high performance DAC, as found on Quad's Elite CD players resolves digital inputs with up to 24bit/192kHz accuracy. USB, Coaxial and Optical digital inputs allow a variety of ways to connect and switch between your digital sources. The 9AS thus becomes a full preamplifier and power amplifier plus lourspeaker combination that works with many sources - even a 3.5mm jack for a portable device.
