The 34 is taking shape. Fully recapped and slightly breathed on, waiting for a 4001BP which will hopefully sort out a filter switching wobbly. Repainted in satin black which I think brings it bang up to date.

You could have any colour as long as it's black.

The Quad colour is nigh on impossible to get, and as the vol knob was corroded, and edges of the front panel scuffed, I figured 'paint'!

There is a gloss white 405 out there which looks superb, and I did think about blue anodising...

Yet another bonkers day down the tip - Quad FM3, 33 and 303 plus a cabinet for the 33/ FM3 and, one single sad looking Rogers LS 3/5a.

Oh and a couple of Philips CD104 which suddenly seem to be sought after.

What condition are the Quads in?

The CD104 is sought after as it's easy to convert to non-oversampling, which 'audiophiles' seem to think sounds better - which of course it does as all that unfiltered RF shite that ends up in your amplifier is just BOUND to improve things...

Quads are minty mint for 40 years old.

So is the Lecson for that matter....

I take it you've got an inside man at the tip keeps stuff for you? Might have to befriend one of the guys at my local tip...
