Where did you see that?
Yeah I've seen quietly = p in other cryptics.
p=piano in music notation means soft and quiet.
f=forte is the opposite

I'm not sure. Superior Quality = super -- does that come from some Canadian ranking system?

I admit, the piano 'p' got me good …

Okay, that explains the adjective part 'superior'. What about the noun 'quality'? Is that for surface?
