    Default WTD: quad 306

    I'd like to try one of these if anyone has one they are not using, ideally one that has been serviced relatively recently and with upgraded speaker posts.

    Thanks
    Phil

    Have you heard one Phil? It's a good amplifier, certainly the nicest sounding Quad amp I've used. Works well with a passive pre-amp too.

    I've not heard one, but I've only heard positive reports about them. My feeling is if I don't like it it should be easy to shift without too much of a loss. I'm also keen to try a passive pre/power amp combination

    Obviously highly rated on here. No one seems to want to sell one!

    They do come up on E-Bay regular but as always people like to take the piss with prices..

    I bought one serviced a few years back for 175, IMO they have such synergy with Tannoy speakers. Mine drives kitchen bookshelf speakers for toons whilst cooking.
    Good luck finding one, they are quite common.

    My main system:
    Linn Axis + Goldring Eroica + Puresound T10 + EAR834P / Innuos ZENmini + Mytek Brooklyn DAC+ / Musical Fidelity A5 + L2 mods / Boenicke W8 speakers

    Thanks all. I have managed to find one on PFM, I need to find myself a pre now! The consensus seems to be that passives are the way to go for the 306.

    I used mine with a Tisbury passive, cheap solution but a very good one
