    Quad 57's, Radford STA15, Weiss DAC202 (Possibly)

    Quad 57 complete rebuild from One thing Audio at a cost of 1090 in December 2009. Complete with custom built quad Musikweidergabe external legs in solid beech and brand new grilles in powder coated white. The legs have internal threads for spikes if required. The quad Germany components were 1067 Euro (900) as well as the speakers themselves this package cost over 2k as you can appreciate this is a unique pair of quad speakers and will include a 4m custom made pair of OTA widgets made as part of the cables as opposed to separate connectors. All paperwork available.

    Quads now Sold

    Radford STA15 amplifier. Iconic amplifier that works effortlessly with the quad 57. Much sought after this has had the cage professionally powder coated. Under the hood all transformers are original. The circuit boards are removable and have been completely rebuilt with some of the finest components available..Shinkoh and audionote tantalum film resistors throughout 90%+ as well as Jupiter beeswax HT coupling caps, electrolytic replaced with Ansar polypropylenes where applicable, others are Elna Silmics as well as 99% Silver 1% Gold Mundorf wire. Valves are all within the last 12 months...Minwatt branded Mullards XF2 EL34's all matched with lovely printing, Telefunken ECF 82's, Mullard EF86's. The Components alone are approximately 900 on top of the amp itself. Looking for 1400

    Radford now sold subject to payment

    Weiss DAC202 Removed from sale

    ASC Tubetraps*http://www.tubetrap.com/
    Pair available as of the link. These are $1000 new. Offers? 200 anyone??

    GEC ECF82, 2 pairs boxed NOS. One pair with GEC printing 90 one without 75.

    Will take 150 for both pairs posted...this is a bargain when 125 a pair is the norm?

    Bugger. I love those ESLs a bit. I'm guessing that ten or so watts of Audionote power won't exactly get them singing though?

    Quad 11's were only eleven watts, it's voltage swing not power per se with the Quad ESL. You are reaonablly close to Stuart, why not ask him if you can bring your audionote amp for a test drive?

    Stuart's ESL 57s are amongst the finest speakers I've heard (with Quad IIs, a Leak 20 and Radford 15) and if I had the space would have these in my home now. I also echo Mr. Moon's sentiment (though not the bit about the gender reassignment !), this is really special kit. The amp. in particular is quite unique given the spec. of the parts used in the rebuild.

    Good luck with the sale Stuart, I hope you won't regret it !
    Cleanliness is next to Quadliness.

     Yes

    11 watts is enough

    A friend is still using the 57s I sold him 35 years ago and he uses a rebuilt Heathkit with , I think, 8 watts. 57s don't take much power, just a very stable amp. If I remember the impedance curve dips below one ohm in the top end.

    Please excuse my ignorance but is there an advantage, other than aesthetics, with this arangement?

    FWIW, last week Quad Musikweidergabe quoted me 465 (delivered) just for a pair of 57 legs! They do look superb though.

    The widgets in-line allow the same speaker cable to be used throughout and removes additional terminal connections..and yes aesthetically the widgets are housed at the amp end of the cables so you effectively don't see them at all..
