    Oh well, this Quad 303 is now on its way to me. Not sure quite why I bought it, but there you go.

    It looks cosmetically rather good and may even work and it was cheap!

    Not heard one for many years.

    It can be a side effect of the meds you take for it, can also cause obsessive behaviour.

    If I was to hazard a guess I'd say a few people on the forum might be on them

    One of the 306's is a boxed minter, the other two were cheapies that have some cosmetic needs, but they all work.

    I may have a dabble at colour matching the case enamels to respray the scruffier ones.

    Looks to be in good cosmetic condition, so ought to be in good working order. Well done.

    Are you after my status as Incorrigable Quad Fanatic? Three 306s and a 303 isn't bad, but you're up against 4 tuners; a pair of speakers; 3 405s (all fettled); a pair of 'monoblocked' and heavily modified 405s; a 303; a 303K; a 520f, and a pair of 510 monoblocks.
