Quad 510


The Quad 510 is a single channel 130 watt amplifier for 19inch 2U rack mounting.

The balanced signal input is suitable for bridging 600 ohm lines, 0.775 Vrms, with a lockable gain control.

The output is isolated and provides up to 130 watts into almost any impedance from 2 to 75 ohm, the choice being determined by a plug-in card.

The 510 is thus highly versatile and can be used either singly or in groups to provide virtually any power into any load.

The amplifier is fully protected and virtually proof against mis-use.

No harm can be caused by factors such as gross overload, continuous operation or short circuits, heavy reactive loading, inadequate ventilation etc.


Power output: 135W into 8Ω (mono)

Frequency response: 30Hz to 20kHz

Total harmonic distortion: 0.1%

Input sensitivity: 0.775V

Signal to noise ratio: 115dB

Speaker load impedance: 2Ω (minimum)

Dimensions: 482.6 x 88 x 310mm

This is one of the best sounding amplifiers regardless of price. Revision from DATA Electronics Nederlands (Joost) transform this into a beast. Tight Bass, mids to die for and a smooth silky treble. BBC stuff that remains in time and has that proud of ownership with Harbeth speakers.
