Quad July 1952

Great Quad ad from Wireless World July 1952. I believe examples of this amp and preamp are in the Klipsch audio history museum. Anyone want to sell me the pair for $35. Hell I'd be happy with the illustrated book mentioned in the ad.

  1. Yes, and that Peter Walker design is still the benchmark for each and every tube amplifier over 60 years later. Anyone with a well restored 1950s designed tube amp, be it a Fisher, a Leak or a Quad 22/double II has an incredibly musical sounding combination. I've a late sixties Bocama using EL84s (also known as 6Vs I think), that needs some TLC, that outperforms any modern amp sound wise. Solid state amps, with the exception of Sony's vFet's just are too harsh.
