Item: Full Quad System. ESL988, II/40 Monoblocks, QC24 pre
Extra Info:  One of my favourite systems I've had the pleasure of owning. Silky tops, a sound stage bigger than a Broadway theater (remember those?), and a transient response that traditional drivers can only dream of. 

 

Speakers: 

 

The best late night speaker ever built. Fully rebuilt by Melbourne's Quad expert John Hall. Quad owners will know how good his work is. With all new panels and power supply components these are as good or better than new.  I pulled them out to take photos, so a listening session of course followed, so they have around 2 hours on them. 

 

Amps:

 

Valve complement 2 x KT-88 , 2 x 6SH7 , 1 x 5U4G - Brand new Electro-Harmonix KT88 will be fitted before pickup. (Alternate tubes by negotiation) 

Total Harmonic Distortion at 700 Hz 0.3% at 40W 0.03% at 1W

Frequency Response 10Hz to 30kHz (+0 / -0.5dB)

Damping Factor 20 at 700Hz (8 ohm)

Hum and Noise better than -80dB

Loudspeaker taps 4 ohm and 8 ohm

Power Consumption 180W maximum

 

Pre: 

 

1 x 6111 Twin Triode valve

5Hz - 50kHz (+0dB / -0.5dB) Frequency response

0.6% at 15W (at 700Hz) Total harmonic distortion (THD)

Better than 80dB Hum & Noise, 15dB Line stage gain

50k ohms Recommended minimum load

Inputs: 5 x Line level & 2 x Tape loops

 

I will not ship these, so pick up is essential. Happy to answer any questions, or just simply wax lyrical about hifi.

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Regents Park State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on Pickup, EFT Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
       
      (PRICE DROPPED) $1900 --> $1700
       
      The DM2000 is a two-way, three-driver floorstanding speakers. The bass and midrange frequencies are handled  7-inch woofer and a passive Acoustically Driven Radiator (ADR) of the same size. Crossover frequencies above 3,000 Hz are radiated by a 1-inch dome tweeter.
      An electronic time delay (ETD) circuit is built into the DM2000's crossover-network system. The crossover filter proper is a fourth-order Butterworth design with steep, 24-dB-per-octave slopes in the stop-bands.
       
      Each speaker weight around 25kg.
      Cabinet is kept in great condition, however one of the speaker's top rear glass corner is chipped during moving house but it does not affect the sound. Also, one of the speaker's bottom "DM-2000" badge is missing.
       
      Had this pair of speakers serviced at "Speaker Hospital" in April 2020. which cost around $1300 (service invoice attached).
      Also, new speaker terminal has been replaced with modern terminal.
      It sound way better than the time i just acquired it.  
      But time to clear out some equipment to raise fund for other upgrade.
