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.

Wow! A 3000$ Escort! That's a lot of money for a Ford!

I'm looking for the finest available subterranean reproduction, so I guess they're not for me.

Escorts are not for reproduction, just for practice.

Sounds like a type of Japanese food or something. Maybe I've just got sushi on the brain...

Ken, that probably took a lot of courage, you know, to go public with your man-crush. I hadn't pegged you as the kind of guy with a fetish for Asian biochemists. Is that why Sushi doesn't come around the boards any more? Do we need to alert his local authorities?
