Hi all, 

I just bought a quad 44 and quad 405.2 to fit a pair of Dahlquist DQ10. The guy gave me a good price for the 44 as the stereo was working only on the left way. Any ideas what it could be, and what should I do?

Another problem seems to add: when I plug my thorens TD125, I don't have any sound. The turntable is not the problem, as it works with other amps. Does it mean the disc module is broken? Can the disc module be repaired? Or does it have to be replaced? On ebay there are two disc module for sale with "moving coil"... can someone explain to me what it is please? (I'm a neophyte)

Thanks a lot!

Matteo

Did the 44 (and the 405) get a revision already?

Otherwise you should do that first because the Quads are 40 years old meaning that several components are completely worn out...

The 44 balance fader is notorious (!) for causing trouble. (Cautiously) taking it apart; cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol and putting it back together again did the trick for me recently...
