My local bike mechanics shop has some really really old system, i think its made by a company called QUAD or its a quad system made by some company
Looks very retro i must say

Normally work outside, so either the laptop or preferably the ipod through some logitech speakers, loud and built in battery make them ideal 8)

A cobbled together system for the cellar using some retro monoblocks and a simple gain control - sounds good when they warm up!

It's a cellar - so no great worries with damp/theft. Definitely TDLs - although cheapo varients - good spot Cheesy!

Have you any experience with Kelvin stuff? One of the switches on the front has packed in which means I have to plug/unplug from the mains, tsk! Would love to get it repaired...
