I am reluctantly selling my Quad 33 control unit, Quad FM3 FM tuner, Quad 303 power amplifier, ESL-57 speakers, Garrard 401 transcription turntable, SME 3009 Mk II pickup arm and Ortofon VMS30 Mk. II cartridge.

If the included photos are not very clear, I am just not great with a camera, I will try to get and add some better ones.

This is a VERY high quality HiFi setup, I have had it hidden away in the spare bedroom for years and only got it out in order to listen to the BBC Radio 3 Proms - my better half is "encouraging" me to sell it all and to get something that doesn't dominate the house in quite the same way.

For what it is worth, the Quad ESL-57s are heavy and measure 87 cms wide by 73 cms high. I don't have the original legs for the speakers so they are mounted on wooden bars in a bay window. Nor do I have the speaker power leads with the (now unobtainable) Bulgin 3-pin connectors, I use leads with "bullet" type connectors and they work fine although they would doubtless horrify any electricians.

The Quad 33 & FM3 are housed in an original Quad wooden sleeve.

The plastic cover for the Garrard 401 has a crack on the rear, right-hand side. The 401 still plays perfectly using a VMS30 Mk. II cartridge. I have a spare VMS30 Mk. II stylus and two spare VMS20E Mk. II styli.

I will include all the relevant connecting leads although if you are a purist you may want to replace them with shorter high quality interconnects from someone like "SoundsHeavenly", "CustomLynx" or "Flashback".

I will more than happily demonstrate all or any of this setup. In the improbable event that you want to connect up a mobile 'phone (with a lead) I can probably cope with that and I can certainly play any CDs using my CD player and a lead. I am happy to answer any questions to the best of my ability.

I am looking for £1,500 in cash on collection from Winchmore Hill in North London, I will not negotiate over this. Nor will I sell some parts of this complete HiFi setup, ship it or deliver it. - 07517667849
