I purchased these speakers brand new with their dedicated stands from an authorised dealer approx 8 weeks ago and after extensive listening I have decided to keep my Quad floorstanders. 

 

The speakers come with all paperwork and warranty and are in as new condition.

Current cost is  for the speakers is $3995 and the stands are $895, So I am offering them at a substantial discount.

      Item Condition: Excellent - and upgraded Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Fitzroy North State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash on pickup preferred, but will accept EFT and Paypal (plus fees) Reason for selling: not used Further information:
       
      Up for sale is my beloved C.E.C. TL-1X belt drive CD transport. In stock form, the TL-1X is already considered by some to be one of the very the best transports ever made, but this one is even better: it has been rebuilt/refreshed as described below, and has a custom built true hydrodynamic bearing (see below for details).
       
      I hunted long and hard to find this one, imported it from overseas, and had it completely refreshed and upgraded by Leviathan Audio (details below), but I just don't spin CDs any more, despite the C.E.C. transport clearly sounding better through my DAC than my high cost computer transport (a silent PC with SSD, linear supplies running Windows Server 2019, Audiophile Optimiser, hqplayer, and Roon server sending data to an Ultrarendu powered by an LPS-1.2).
       
      I would have used the Tl-1X transport for maybe two hours in total, so frankly it's wasted on me. If the electronic components need to be run in, then they almost certainly would not have been run in yet. 
       
      The C.E.C. has a brand new laser (plays any CD-R disc I have thrown at it, and of course commercial discs). It also has the 'lampizator' S/PDIF output mod. I have the original box. Although I would prefer pickup (from Fitzroy North or Melbourne CBD), I would be willing to send by courier anywhere in Australia if necessary.
       
      Mark of Leviathan Audio has refreshed and upgraded quite a few C.E.C. transports, but he told me that this one was in the best condition he had ever seen, and also that, after the rebuild, it sounded better than the others he had done. 
       
      The rebuild/refresh includes the following:
       
      1 – The Bearing. This is the heart of the mods, and took some time to work out.  I press out the original “Oilite style sintered bronze bushes, and machine up a light press engineering plastic bush that runs full length of the spindle, instead of yoke style as per original. It’s then reamed and hand scraped to perfect fit. This bit is quite tricky.  The brass housing then has a machined ‘O’ ring sealed sump spigot soldered onto it allowing the new sump to be oil filled. A new Eng Plastic thrust disc is machined up and then the housing is sealed and oil filled.
      This produces a true hydrodynamic bearing which will run with virtually no clearance and no vibration. This ultra smooth rotation allows the laser to read the disc with no vibration and gives a cleaner/more accurate digital steam, rendering the error correction circuitry almost null and void.
       
      2 – I modify the chassis to allow the new bearing housing shape to fit into the transport plate.
       
      3 - Strip out all original Electrolytics. It’s easy to think that they are OK because the units still works, but the servo board, power supply and control board need to be within spec to do their jobs correctly. I replace all the electro’s with
      high quality Nichicons. Genuine,....not Chinese copies.
       
      4 - The Power Supply Board gets particular attention here and I use great quality Elna Cerafine 11’s here, for better tolerance and reliability. The Elnas are quite a bit bigger requiring relocation and subsequent wiring to the board as you can see in the Photos. I also replace all the bridge rectifiers with high spec Motorola Ultra Fast/Soft Recovery diodes. This helps supply a cleaner waveform.
       
      5 – If the Tracking Belt and or the Spindle Belt  are stretched, or oxidized, I replace them as a pair. I’ve never seen either worn out,...they usually oxidize and start to micro crack.
      I only use genuine CEC Belts.
       
      6 – I install a WBT RCA on the rear of the unit for SPDIF out. I use silver plated solid core copper wire from the Servo Board to the RCA.
       
      7 - new laser diode
