Signal Path Optimised Stereo Amplifier

add a review (1 review)



The QED A240CD amplifier is fitted with a balance control which can be bypassed - this is achieved by turning the control fully anticlockwise until a switch off click is heard.

Used this way, the amplifier is fully signal-path-optimised, with the superior plastic film volume control further eliminating signal degradation.

The A240CD may be upgraded to SA specification by replacing the standard disc input board with the Super Analogue board.


Power output: 40 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo)

Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz

Total harmonic distortion: 0.1%

Input sensitivity: 3mV (MM), 300mV (line)

Signal to noise ratio: 72dB (MM), 80dB (line)

Dimensions: 355 x 237 x 64mm

Weight: 5.25kg

Year: 1989

Price: GBP £249 (1989)

I bought a used QED. SA 250 SA.From a guy. He said it was his first taste of high end. Any way $50 .Bargain of my life. Never heard qed. When I guick looked it I saw a nice Holden Fisher transformer. That's all I needed to see. Anyway hooked it up to Clements 207 di speakers Atoll mk 3 cd ,
Incredible sound.Bass has beautiful punch. Even wallop. No buzz,dead quiet.
JHavent had any problems with it.
It's very clear and clean. So surprised nobody jumped on it.
Couldnt be happier.
