When at the end of October, on the 28th, QUADfans meet for this year's QUADfest in the Eifel, it will be the result and the realization of the idea of a loyal customer.
"I would like to organize a real "old-fashioned" analog day."
These were the words of Andreas Wolff a few months ago. Andreas has been not only a customer, but also a friend and fan of QUAD Musikwiedergabe for decades.
The premises of our manufactory offer enough space, so I quickly agreed and was looking forward to the planning and realization.
Analog and vinyl - that immediately brings back many memories of the good old days. The "making of music" at the QUADfest is obviously in the hands of the two original QUAD electrostatics ESL57 and ESL63. If you bring your favorite LP, you are welcome to listen to it "live" over a pair of electrostatics. Andreas will also give a presentation.
Dietmar Meisel, a specialized local dealer from the area, has agreed to present a selection of REGA turntables and amplifiers. For exactly 50 years REGA has been producing turntables in England and has a suitable solution for every budget.
A record exchange in the entrance area enriches the event. Behind it is Norbert Schumacher, better known to insiders as Nobbi`s Plattenladen. In his record store in Bonn-Beul there are about 30000 records. To the QUADfest the "Vinyljunkie" Norbert brings a large selection of Jazz, Blues and Rock.
A special thanks goes to the team of QUAD Musikwiedergabe. For decades, our staff has been working steadily and meticulously to preserve the great developments that Peter Walker gave to the audio world more than 70 years ago. Music lovers around the world enjoy their natural reproduction characteristics every day, "For The Closest Approach Of The Original Sound".
I will be happy to see you on Saturday, 28 Okotober from 10:00 to 16:00 for a lively event with exciting discussions, casual conversations and, of course, lots of music.
PS: Who announces us his visit in advance by telephone or by mail, simplifies the planning for us.
