Hi Fi Year Book 1959 Quad for the closest approach to the original sound

The 1959 Hi Fi YEAR BOOK seems to be limited to Quad stereo. I would love to have this vintage system. The Quad II's were the first tube amps I ever heard.

  1. Amazing piece of gear! Not many people is realizing how good does it sound. It wipes the floor with nowadays stuff with ease. I used to have one of those until got myself McIntosh MC275

  4. It wasn't limited to Quad amps. That's just the front cover ad. :-)
    As it says in the masthead, this is the 'Special Tape Edition' but features pickups, turntables, speakers and more. It's an amazing piece of audiophile history.

    I have my dad's copy of this - if you'd like to buy it, make me an offer.
