“QUAD Musikwiedergabe knows about the ideas behind each QUAD product
When we work on your unit we try to get it back to its original specs. When we replace parts we of course have nothing against contemporary replacements, offering better quality. But we try to keep the general design untouched in its quality and don't trust too much in modifications.”
You can bring in all original ESLs and the newer Chinese models and also all ever produced electronic units.
QUAD Musikwiedergabe has a long-time experience in building electrostatic panels for the original QUAD ESL. To reach the original specs which “creates” the wonderful natural sound we all love, we carefully produce every single mechanical part of the panels and also use the original Mylar material for the membranes.
Using the original jig (Peter Walker designed back in the 1950s) to strengthen the membrane, QUAD Musikwiedergabe makes sure the membrane will “swing” for many years to come.
Another important point is the membrane coating. Nowadays it is a multilayer construction which benefits in the right conductivity and at the same time protects the conductive layer.
QUAD Musikwiedergabe not only produces the electrostatic panels but also virtually all parts of the original QUAD ESLs. This means we can refurbish any ESL back to new condition. It doesn't matter in what condition you bring them in. Providing all parts also means there is no need for you to bring in a used pair first. In case you don't own one you just can place an order for a newly-made pair.
