    Quad 57s are simultaneously the world's best and worst speakers. Everyone should own a pair at some point since what they do well is utterly magical and their faults are relatively easy to overlook. It's a crying shame that any money spent on bringing a pair up to full working specs, either by Quad, One Thing etc, is not reflected in their market value. So, preserving and servicing these things is best done for love, and there's nothing wrong with that!

    Hi Hugo

    I'm going in with an open mind i am also getting the Professionally tested once collected if i knew the history of them i know they had power cables so may have been in regular use who knows i have got to get them either for ownership of the most iconic speaker ever made..

    Thanks guys.

    Wrap each one in a quilt and put then on the back seat of your car held by the seat belts.

    Worked for me.
