The Definitive Quad Book-Brought to You by Ken Kessler! Long out of print . Same book is for sale now on Ebay for over $269 and an opened one in Greece for $114. We have 1 signed by Ken Kessler that we would sell for $150.00. Purchase at asking price and I will include a copy of Rega A Vibration Measuring Machine $80 value.
Ken Kessler has written what is absolutely the most thorough history of one of the most respected names in all of Hi-Fi: Quad! This 240 page hardcover book is not only an utterly informative history of the manufacturer; it is also visually stunning - a feast for bibliophiles and the equal of any art book, an audiophile 'coffee table book' if ever there was one! This massive volume is oversized (the same dimensions, interestingly enough, as an LP record!) and includes everything you would want to know about the famed company, including: original ads, reprints of technical papers, complete charts of production models, years of manufacture and how many units were sold! Interviews with QUAD founder, Peter Walker, and other principal characters, plus technical chapters from Tim de Paravicini and others are captured inside. It covers everything anyone could want to know about Quad, from its origins in 1938, and on into the future. As you would expect from the pen of Ken Kessler, this is not only the most informative history of a HiFi company every published, it's also super-cool and really fun to read!
Quad: The Closest Approach is one of the most complete and compelling sagas ever produced for the hi-fi and music lover. We consider it a 'must-read' for anyone with an interest in Quad ... or audio in general!

This innovative new book opens with an in-depth history of the company from the birth of it’s founder, Roy Gandy, to the present day, detailing the key events and the creation of new products along the way.

The book also unravels Roy Gandy’s thesis on hi-fi turntable engineering, examining every aspect of the engineering and structure of the component which has always been close to Roy’s heart. Finally, the book concludes allowing central figures from the company to tell, in their own words, their personal tales of commitment to the Rega ideals.This long-awaited book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in music reproduction, written with the home enthusiast, the professional manufacturer, and the hi-fi journalist in mind.
