1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

[FS] Quad 33, FM3 and 303 in excellent order

    Bought recently as I’d intended to run a second system. I’ve now sold the speakers (somewhat out of the blue, as I’d not advertised them!), so reconsidering the real value of having a second system that saw very little use in practise. Just these three items are for sale, second picture shows the CDP and recently sold speakers as well which are obviously not included. Note, one fin on the 303 is slightly bent - but generally they’re in overall lovely shape.

    Very much looking to sell as a set, for £400 plus shipping - or even better collected from Worthing.

    Nagraboy How’d all these people get in my room?

    Lovely old Quads - any work done on the them? SN of the 33?

    All original as far as I know. All working perfectly, though only getting clear FM reception in mono as I’ve only a simple indoor ribbon aerial.

    Sounds lovely playing CDs from my Sony 103.


    33 is 47829
    FM3 is 19169
    303 is 15361

    And since everything is original and working, restoration will be easy and they will sound at their best.
    And you have no idea what they can do when properly restored! The preamp is much maligned especially (I know Jez) but once updated with modern components like mine it sounds just fine.

    Thanks for the nice words. To be honest, I liked how they sounded as they are!

    If anyone want the 33/303 without the FM3 I’d do that pair for £325.

    Cheaper than from a Leominster Bric-à-Brac shop!

    Pearl before swine at this price brother. The 303 is a stunning amp for the £ and the 33 is a pocket money joy.

    Totally agree. Timeless design and great performers, not many sets around in such nice condition as these.
