It 'sounds' ok, I'd rather find the cd transport or a working DVD32r.

The amplifier belonged to a Peter Stevens, its nice that its stayed within the family as it were.

Nice system, I do love Electrostatics and they realy should be valve driven but what stopped you running a valve pre with your CD?

I'm a big valve fan myself so everything in the amplification chain is valve in my system, phono stage, pre amp, active crossover, power amps and even my CD player and tuner have valve output stages in them, so there's plenty of glowing bottles when I listen to music.

I've been pretty set with whats in mine for a good few years now but it doesn't stop me having a little swap about every now and then, although I do usually gravitate back to the same core components.

legrandfromage will probably be pleased to hear I do have a couple of completely solid state systems in the house and one of them contains some pre and post Tag as both bits are badged Audiolab.

Do you know what's wrong with the display? Its probably not a difficult fix (loose connection or the backlight spring to mind) or is it just not worth the bother to you?

Its a vac-flouro display so given the state of its, its probably pooped

Cool! I have that CD player too and a later Quad 44 but dont like valves!


I'm still using the 44 I bought off you many years ago (albeit not that much like it left Quad) with an A&R C200 with MC and MM cards fitted, a bunch of home built decks, a Sony SACD and a Marantz pro CD, and some dinky Q Acoustics speakers.

Just bought myself the best headphones I've ever owned - Shure SRH1540s.
