Quad 44 Service
 

 

Quad 44 Service  (Quote Q44FS) price 110.00.

Fault diagnosis and repair, replacement of all electrolytic capacitors and out of tolerance components.
F
ull performance test to ensure it at least matches  the original specification, followed by a PAT* and 48 hour soak test.
This does not include socket and other upgrades.  If you have your 44 and 405 serviced at the same time we only charge a total of 190 for both.

Quad 44 Service and Socket Upgrade  (Quote Q44MS) price 170.

This option is ideal for older Quad 44s with DIN only interconnects.

We can improve your Quad 44 and take it to new heights by carrying out some sensible modifications. This option includes the full service, as above, plus modifications. For example, some older serial number models used DIN connectors for the tape, aux, and radio inputs. If this option is requested, we will add gold plated phono connectors and change the sensitivities and impedances to match modern DAC, CD, MP3 sources.
Simply tell us what sources you want to connect on your
service request form.  We also improve the stereo image and hum background by several dbs* by carrying out some wiring changes.  We may also add low, noise  low distortion op-amps where necessary **. To the improve the poor fitting DIN connection we fit a replacement on the outer side of the output panel to allow full pin interconnect.  The image below shows a Quad 44 being modified with phono socket upgrades, new ICs and wiring.

* The actual reduction depends on the source impedance of your power amplifier.

** Depends on the type of op-amps fitted in your 44. If there is no audible benefit to be gained, we leave the existing ones in situ.
