Quad's most valuable breakthrough is still the method which eliminates problems allied to transistor amplifiers providing a steady performance and eradicating the need for fine tuning adjustments during production, otherwise known as current dumping. The "current dumping" technique features a very high quality low output power amplifier and a very high power output amplifier. The former emits a signal to compensate for errors between the input signal and the signal fed to the loudspeakers, while the latter controls the loudspeakers at all times and provides the current The Elite QSP stereo power...
