Building Quiescent

Our objective is simple – to change the landscape for high-end audio with new levels of buyer experience, ownership, and performance. Buying hifi can be risky - not least for your wallet. With huge margins for the middle-men, it's all too easy to make an expensive purchase only to find it massively discounted a few months later. So we sell direct – and only through this website. But you do need high-quality advice and some way to hear our products, so we appoint selected sales consultants to support you. And our consultants don't own the Quiescent demo stock they hold, we do, and we only pay them a commission that is nearer to the standard in other industries. 

The money you invest in a hifi component should reflect the technology, design, materials and support that goes into that product. What you own should have real, long-term value. Our sales model and Lifetime Support Agreement helps sustain this, but so do our design values. From the unique way we tackle signal disruption, the exceptional casework, the open-architecture of our streamers or the simplicity of our amplifier designs, every aspect of each product is designed for robustness, easy and reliable operation… and performance…

...dazzling performance. Our approach to product design is unique. By applying extensive systematic techniques such as passive noise and vibration reduction within and between each subsystem, we reduce reliance on musically damaging digital and analogue fixes including signal shaping algorithms and large amounts of feedback. The result is a performance of such stability and musicality that it connects you emotionally to every genre, every recording and every song you could ever hope to play.

Our product range will centre around digital sources and solid-state amplification, with high-end power conditioning and key system accessories included in the lineup. For the main components there will be three price/performance levels:
