Undertaking a new project to rebuild/mod or replace a vintage Quad 44 Mk 1 Preamp (early serial number variant that is Olive Drab/Brown original Quad colour) that will be completely been upgraded with all new electronics kit (Caps, Opamps etc) for a newer version Charcoal Grey unit. I have a 405-2 and FM4 in Charcoal Grey so the older Brown/Olive Drab 44 one I have sticks out like a sore thumb next to them. See:
As a result I am looking for either bits from either a crapped out grey donor unit since I need a few parts to complete the conversion or willing to swap for a grey unit where this one has been upgraded to completely new guts. I just received the Dada Electronics upgrade/mod kit from Europe that will be installed shortly - I just did the 405-2 amp upgrade and received it back today (31 Aug). It absolutely sounds amazing! For those that know these units as well as I do (I used to sell them in Europe back in the day), I also have the upgraded CD Module that I got from the UK on EPray as well. The early serial number variants of the 44 only had two radio input modules where one was considered an Aux input where redbook CD output is way too hot for these. Rather than do a mod to one radio module I just ordered the right module with completely updated components. Anyway, the old brown/olive drab 44 had brown tilt and tone controls as well as volume controls so I would be looking to update those to grey and also replace the yellow and red input/monitor buttons with the newer grey ones if I can (similar to the tuner unit in the photo). If anyone has these spare parts laying around to unload I would be happy to work a fair deal.
Would also consider a fair swap or reasonable price purchase for a grey version. The DaDa Electronics Upgrade kit i have is here: http://www.dadaelectronics.eu/shop/quad-upgrade-kits/quad-44-mki-diy-upgrade-and-revision-kit-deluxe-opa604
This will be installed shortly making it function far better than it ever was new with upgraded opamps and new capacitors, resistors and transistors etc. It also comes with two complete cases and faceplates. Contact me for full details.
