    You should hear it. It's even more mellifluous than the Quad II and that's saying something. A deeply flawed and ultra 'valvey' sound, but wonderful!

The 6V6 valve is not seen often in Hi-Fi amps, but it is highly regarded for use in guitar amps.




    6V6 single ended, what is the output power Geoff?

    Found it, 4W at less than 10% THD.

    Yeah. 4 watts it is, not that you'd realise using it, there's no obvious shortage of power. It's only going to be driving tweeters initially, so more than enough. The tweeters will be vintage Japanese 10w horns made by Coral.

    Now I have to decide on what power amp will be driving the bass drivers.

    Quad 306 cosmetic restoration now finished. Case resprayed gunmetal metallic, battered front panel cooling fins touched in to match original colour, I had to mix to get the right colour. One new + speaker banana socket fitted. All looks really nice!
