FOR SALE: Quad L-series centre speaker
This is a nice single Quad centre speaker in lacquered bird's eye maple finish in gorgeous like new condition – not a single scratch in sight.
Besides being in impeccable cosmetic condition - please see the attached pictures - it is also in flawless working order with impeccable drivers (tweeter and woofers) and front grille. It has been tested by me just before listing and it sounds superb.
On the fastidiously perfect lacquer finish you may find the following description on line:
… seven coats of lacquer each dried for 24 hours, then hand-cut and polished before the next coat is added...
And on performance:
The centre channel in particular has a very precise interpretation of speech and treble detail. Dialogue is projected well into the room and clearly enunciated without any sibilance. The terrorist bomb attack that replays throughout the film is brought to life in an exhilarating fashion. The balance errs toward the bright side of neutral, which means lots of great crunching effects, but doesn't go so far as to sound harsh at all, even with the volume up high.
This centre speaker came out intended to be part of a Quad L-series based 5.1 home cinema system and the rest of the speakers including main/fronts, satellites and a subwoofer may be easier to find than this one. Anyway, that's all I got for the moment.
Please note that this model is no longer part of the Quad range and may not have been substituted. Your chance to pick a, still, like-new item.
Like in the case of all items I sell / have sold I’d prefer this speaker to be collected, at my place in Luxembourg where I’m currently posted, but I can ship it and should that be your choice I’d suggest in a sturdy double box - with packaging material a parcel containing it should be around 8Kg; please check the two websites indicated below for shipping prices (that vary depending on buyer’s location):
1. Luxembourg Post (for cost, safety, speed, convenience, traceability and their track record) - please check their rates in: https://www.post.lu/particuliers/colis/prix
2. GLS (for a similar set of reasons) – please check their rates in https://gls-group.eu/LU/en/parcelshop-prices
On the other hand, as I’m in the UK often (on average once a month) I can also bring it to you, either for free, should you be on my way from Dover to East Sussex/very near, or for the cost of petrol should a significant but reasonable (up to 50 miles max, give or take) detour be necessary. Same rule applies in case you should live near Luxembourg. A small deposit will be required to secure one such deal.
Price is €180 or £150
I can accept payment by cash on collection/delivery, bank transfer or by PayPal, the latter with shared PayPal fees, meaning adding a mere 2% to the final agreed item price + shipping costs (sharing PayPal fees makes sense since it is both convenient for buyer and seller). Should you want to collect or have it delivered to you (in case this latter alternative should be possible) then cash is the only option unless paid previously by bank transfer.
Any questions please ask and you can also solicit my phone number to discuss any doubts by phone.
