Selling my beloved Quads which I picked up from a fellow SNAer about five years ago. Not sure how I've managed it, but I can't find a single scratch on them hence the 'excellent' description - always driven with quality amps and never thrashed (I live in an apartment and the neighbours keep me in line ).
I'd say a deep soundstage, controlled highs and a really sweet midrange are these speakers strengths. Bass is respectable for their size, but I ran a sub to fill things out. They do like powerful amps (performed well with Nad, Cyrus and Emotiva for me) and benefit from careful positioning. By way of comparison, I ran a pair of Usher 520's for a bit and while they imaged a little better, the Quads were far more warm and involving to my ears.
Grills unmarked and I still have the original packaging (even the white gloves!) Pictures: Sorry about the iphone photos - can't seem to upload larger files from my camera.
