That's a really classy system. And it looks good in your listening space too.


Many thanks for the compliments!!  I started out with the Pioneer SX-1050 in 1973, which gives you a clue I’ve been around for awhile.  Couldn’t afford speakers so joined a bunch of fellows where I worked and we made ourselves exact copies of the big rear projecting Bose 901 speakers.  Then a few years later, fate smiled on me when I read a review in Opera News about how perfectly ideal the Quad ESL-63s were for opera and I knew I had to have them.  Wound up importing them from England along with Quad amp and preamp which saved me a ton of money because they were not only priced much cheaper in England but the dollar to pound ratio was highly favorable at that time.  I was pretty lucky.  One other piece of gear I had and I truly loved was a Meridian 508.24 CD Player which I splurged on and it was a perfect mate for the Quads.  Still am furious that it is out of commission because a replacement transport is unobtainable. Well, I still have my Quads and I  still love my Quads!


echolane - that system looks very nice.  I have never heard Quads; it would be fun to listen to your setup!

Awesome looking system echolane! Gotta love those Quads and I bet that Audiomat sounds luscious. Very well done thanks for sharing!
