QUAD "The Closest Approach"

The Definitive Quad Book. Brought to you by Ken Kessler!

Article code: award

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!
