    various upgrades for Quad amps, notably for the 306. One source I know and have used is http://dadaelectronics.eu/shop/quad-upgrade-kits = very good V and gives you a fresh amp

    May I just say it's very good of you putting this together Andy as I know it can't be easy with so many potential items wishing to be listed.

    Should help anyone wanting to build a system take a short cut to tried, tested and proven products without all the uncertainty of whether they are any good or not.

    if this is going to happen might I suggest the list be titled 'Worthy of Consideration' rather than 'marks out of ten' or 'this is the best in class' since there will never be universal agreement on anything so it is best to avoid absolutes.

    'Worthy of Consideration' meaning if you are in the market for one this is worth taking the time for a demo, and nothing more.

    Then we are in agreement

    We surely don't want some idiotic 5 star rating system like What (sic) Hi Fi. I've always thought trying to catagorise audio equipment like that was idiotic, although I suppose it does help out the hard of thinking.
