Offering my pair of Quad Classic MKII, mono tube amplifiers purchased from Globe Audio Marketing in Feb 2005.

The amps do not have many hours on them and have sat idle for some time. I initially bought them to play with my LS3/5a's and Quad 57 ESL's
They are in near mint condition with the odd blemish here and there.
I recently replaced the KT66 output tubes with a fresh quad set of matched Shuguangs. Installed and tested for approximately 30 minutes only to confirm they were perfect.

These units were in current production from Germany under the banner - QUAD Musikwiedergabe GmbH, under the direction of Manfred Stein with a MSRP of $4995

Reproduction Quads made from the highest quality transformers, caps and point to point wiring/soldering by a Quad factory skilled technician!
Their design reflects a Class A, Push-Pull, Mono circuit with only two active stages and is a tribute to the original designer, Mr. Peter Walker.
These beauties are in excellent condition, conservatively rated at 8/10 c/w original boxes.

Quote from Art Dudley - Stereophile
" For its part, the new Quad II Classic is like finding a wormhole in the time-space continuum and going back to the Cavern Club of 1962. Or, to paraphrase Ken Kessler paraphrasing Quad themselves, this is the closest approach to the closest approach. Go buy a pair of these, use a bit of nail-polish remover on a cotton ball to remove the silk-screening, and live it up—life is brief, and second chances are thin on the ground."
