The QUESTARs are destined to be the best entry-level options of the Heed modular line for vinyl reply that money can buy. Under the hood of their hefty, shielded steel chassis beats the heart of our reference Quasar MM/MC phonostage, conveniently divided into neatly-specialized a' la carte portions.

   The QUESTAR MM largely incorporates the Quasar's unsurpassed MM circuitry, while its sibling, the QUESTAR MC deploys a streamlined version of the Quasar's MC stage, eliminating the need for jumper switches by optimising the amplifier to suit the 300-600 µV/100 Ohm output range characterising the vast majority of today's moving coils. Considering its generous 18 dB headroom, ideal cartridge matching is virtually assured.
