    Location will be a part of it, as will their size/shape. Price is good so dont see that as an issue for a fettled pair with stands. Will go at some stage tho I'm sure. Not so many members up here

    Bide your time, they will sell at that price, location for collection and size of vehicle to transport them is the problem, to anyone knowledgeable they’re a steal at the price, good luck.

    3 options , Contact a packing specialist and have some boxes / crates made or contact Quad and see if they can sell you some boxes.

    Second option , more longer term , Arrange a weekend away with the partner and attend the Wam show at Kegworth and take them with you

    3rd option , Offer to travel 100 miles from Glasgee to meet up with a buyer

    They would be mine all mine if I didn't allready have a pair
    Please note , I cant spell , now you all know

    Good price, look nice.

    I'm sure someone will take them, just a matter of time.
    The only real problem is that of transportation. Quad, I am sure, would sell you some suitable cases for the Quad 63s, but they won't be cheap. There may be a packing case manufacturer near you who perhaps could make something similar (I approached one to make me a case for a very heavy amplifier).

    Don't give up - at the price you are asking they are a steal! Someone will buy them as a Christmas present to themselves.

    Ask Nick at Hifi Emporium - I saw a listing for Quad ESL boxes on their s/h list.

    As of yesterday my ESL 63s have a new owner not too far from me . I had a last minute wobble and questioned whether selling them was the right thing to do, but then came to my senses and accepted that sometimes hoarding hifi is counterproductive to enjoying the hobby, especially when it means playing musical chairs with items that take up a considerable amount of floor space! I hope they give their new owner many hours of pleasure...

    Completely understandable last minute wobble - which may turn into regret when you hear just how much the new owner loves the ESL 63s! Great that you managed to sell them to a happy new owner!
