Hello dear forum people,
for those interested in strangely modified quad equipment, I today purchased a set of heavily modified Quad 510's.
Pictures of the outside and inside of the amps (they are absolutely the same inside and out) can be found here: https://files.me.com/c.sides/6fpap6 (7mb zip file)
I already sent the pictures to Joost and Stefaan, but thought that maybe there are some more enthusiasts here that are curious enough to look at them.
I got them for a rather low price, they work perfectly fine, but I couldn't audition them in my system because I just picked them up in Berlin and will only go back home in a couple of days. Very curious to hear what you have to say about them.
From the mail to Joost and Stefaan:
They do look absolutely different from all the pictures I have seen of the internals of 510s so far, and it seems like they received a full makeover. The guy I bought them from said they were from a recording studio in London, and that they have barely
been used. They drove a pair of large Magnepan's with total ease, so he said. But they haven't been connected to anything in years, supposedly. He claims they were from one of the last batches of 510's that Quad made.
