When anyone thinks of quality hifi they generally think of Japanese equipment. Whilst the Pioneers and Kenwoods of this world do make good stuff, when you shell out on high end British equipment you really do notice the difference. Quad make a range of hifi separates. I am lucky to work in Yeovil which means I have access to 2 independent stores. When the offer of a Quad 99 pre-amp and power amp came up (ex-display) for £1500 I leapt at the chance. I was using a Mission Cyrus 2 and the Naim amp and Linn deck were showing it's deficiencies. The Quad has paired well with my Linn Helix II speakers and the added oomph really drives them well. Mid range is particularly well defined and the stereo imaging is also noticeably improved also. Apart from the sound quality the Quad looks good too. I canno recommend this amp highly enough.
