Since Peter Walker founded Quad in 1936, all Quad products have displayed originality in design and outstanding audio excellence. A world leader in audio amplifier and electrostatic speaker design, Quad has been recognised by awards from around the world including the Queen's Award for Technological Achievement in 1978 the only one ever presented to an audio hi-fi equipment manufacturer. It is hard to believe that the legendary Quad 11 was discontinued in 1970, yet my own Quad 11 still outperforms many high end amplifies some 45 years on. Our kits use the best current production and NOS valves to help you get the best sound out of these legendary amplifiers.
The Quad II-Eighty mono power amplifier upgrade kit is for a pair of monoblock amplifiers. The Quad 11 Eighty is an amplifier born out of the famous Quad 11 which was launched in 1953 and ceased production in 1970. Quad II Eighty takes Quad design, build and sound quality to a totally new level.

Quad has used one of the UK most famous and best audios designers in Tim De Paravicini to take Peter Walker design the philosophy to the next level.

The Quad 11 Eighty delivers huge dynamic headroom with more control and has a faster response than any amplifier I have heard. The sound that this amplifier produces is simply stunning. I being a lifelong user of the Famous Quad 11 can happy state that this is one of only a handful of amplifiers that blows the legend away.

This upgrade set uses selected valves which give a better sonic performance to match this incredible amplifier. For the 6SL7GT we use the 6188 Philips which is a super military 6SL7WGT and is the highest grade and most refined sounding 6SL7GT we have come across.
In the 6SN7 position we use a selected modern Tung-Sol 6SN7 GTB.

The KT88 Gold Lion re issue has gained a worldwide reputation for sound quality and is arguably the best KT88 currently made. The Gold Lion re issues have been created just like the original down to the finest detail with gold plated grid wire, carbonized screen grids, and a tri-alloy clad plate structure for exceptional performance and sound quality. Customers have told us that although the JJ is excellent. The Gold lion KT88 is a more refined sound and is closer to the original Gold Lion.

The Kit consists of 14 valves and covers a pair of mono block amplifiers.

4 x 6188 Philips
2 x 6SN7 GTB Tung Sol
8 x KT88 Gold Lion in two matched quads
