a line from a pair of Quad speakers for sale on audiogon
"There has been much written about the sound of the speakers. I will not endeavor to describe the sound in detail but only say that you'll be hard-pressed to find anything better at the price. Current models of the quad ESL sell for upwards of $10,000... Can be used with a receiver or the finest separate components. The higher quality of the source components will however give you the finest available reproduction on the face of the earth. When paired with a world-class woofer system can become unparalleled. Like a fine French wine, the best silk suit, a Ferrari or $3000 escort.
"Those who preach the myths of audio are ignorant of truth. Research begets reality."
