I have rated this as a 7/10 due more to its age, perfect front plate. I have been using it in my own system for a number of years and it works flawlessly. Over the many years I have always used Quad amps/preamps from the Quad II, 303, 405, 606 and changing to the new Elite. The matching power amp is also listed here on Audiogon.
The Quad 99 Preamp is such a device, that can be used virtually anywhere and with no matter what gear. The Quad 99 Preamp sports a very handy combination of inputs that allow it to connect with gear from other manufacturers with perfect matching, but at the same time provides unrivaled integration in Quad racks via the bus-link. The bus-link is a special Quad-dedicated connection/cable that allows all the pieces of equipment to interconnected via the link in order to be controlled and operated with the same remote for easy, fast and comfortable use.
The Quad 99 Preamp comes with top-notch solid state signal switching with completely noiseless operation and digitally-addressed volume and balance controls for unrivaled precision down to 0.1dB, as they constantly monitor both channels for outstanding results. Even more, the Quad 99 Preamp comes with adjustable filters for both treble and bass and a very precise tonal control can be exerted over your sound.
