Further information: Top model in Quad's current range of cone speakers in beautiful piano rosewood finish with RRP of $8600. 

While Quad are renowned for electrostatic speakers, these are the most exotic cone speakers that Quad have ever made, featuring their revolutionary Z-Series silky smooth ribbon tweeter.

Elegantly curved enclosures reduce internal standing waves and aid the external dispersion pattern. Coupled with heavy internal bracing, the cabinets are low in unwanted resonances and high in soundstage size and openness.

Hi-Fi News Nov 2016 Editor's Choice: "Naturally open and detailed sound devoid of any character traits. Tonally it's smooth with well extended bass... Ribbon tweeter is lightning fast".

All accessories and packaging for safe transport are included, as is warranty. There is some external cabinet damage towards the bottom of one edge. Repair has left a small remnant, only visible close up, but nothing to affect perfect operation. See the last photo. Otherwise the pair are in virtually faultless condition.

Donation to SNA on sale.

      Looking at picking up an old pair of Leak speakers which are 15 ohms.
      The three spare amps that I have ( which are all 8 Ohms ) are Quad 303, Quad 405 and an Earl Watson Trinity valve @11 Wpc.
      i know the power output is halved when a 15ohm speaker is powered by 8ohm output, so which would be the best of my amps for the job ?
       
      Supplementary to this, I also need to power a pair of Tannoy T225 Mayfair ( which are 8ohm) so a recommendation for one of my amps would be greatly appreciated.
      cheers

      Item Condition: Excellent condition Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Perth (NOR; Westminster 6061) State: WA Payment Method: Paypal (+3%), Cash on Pickup, PayID Reason for selling: No longer selling as a set I'm selling my Quad set: Quad Vena integrated amplifier + 2x Quad S-1 bookshelf speakers + 2x Vandenhul The Snowline speaker cables.
       
      I have been listening to this set for a few years and have always been very happy with it. It's amazing how much music can come from a small set like this. But I'm ready to upgrade, which is the only reason I'm selling.
       
      This is a perfect set for "starters", people to look getting into HiFi. The Vena has ample inputs, of which two are analog and the rest are digital:
       
      Aux1 (analog) Aux2 (analog) Coax (digital) Opt1 (digital) Opt2 (digital) USB (type B, digital, you can connect this amp directly to, e.g., a Ropieee powered Raspberry Pi - Roon!) iPod (type A, digital) Bluetooth (digital)  
      Output power: 45W per channel (quoted). It does not have a Phono input (I use a Schiit Mani for that purpose). It comes with a small, stylish remote control.
       
      The speaker covers are magnetic and can be taken off quite easily. The speakers can be bi-wired (see images). Speaker stands are not included.
       
      I'm selling this as a Plug&Play solution, which is why I include a pair of Vandenhul speaker cables (The Snowline, spades on one end, exposed wire on the other). Length roughly 2m each. You only need to provide a source.
       
      Audition is absolutely possible. Amplifier and speakers are as new, not a scratch on them. (Please note this is not the Vena II.)

      STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW:
              Once sold, a donation to SNA of 5% of items total will follow.
              Any title here gets a brand new inner and/or outer quality Blake sleeve as needed before shipping.
              I try and ship 3-4 days a week.

      THE SMALL PRINT:
             I fully guarantee everything I offer  - if you don't like any item for whatever reason, return it at my expense for a full refund, no questions asked (verified 30 day+ active Forum members only thanks)..
             Original contents are stored inside the cover.
      I try to ship all records themselves outside the cover, so any postal damage is minimised.
             I use mostly s/hand pre-made cardboard mailers for all orders, and these virtually guarantee safe arrival of your record (they are also MUCH faster to pack).
             Combined postage to anywhere in Australia at cost (or close enough) and is EXTRA (ie. not included in prices). 
            ABSOLUTELY NO LOCAL PICKUPS - don't ask - it's not going to happen.
      Complain to me loudly if anything goes wrong (although it barely ever does) - and it'll be fixed, in your favour.
