These speakers are what we call a survivor set meaning they arrived at our shop in all their glory - dusty, dirty, AND working.

They even have their matching stands!

If you haven't heard a pair of DQ-10's you're in for a treat. Despite their off shape (meant to emulate the venerable Quad ESL-57's cosmetically) and plentiful array of drivers in a strange configuration, it all just works like magic.

It's a great sounding speaker even by today's standards. They are musical, full range, and capable of a realistic soundstage.

These are also a consecutive mirror image pair, meant to live together. They are considered to be a 5-way phased speaker array.

These were cleaned up and tested in our listening room where they passed with flying colors. While the stands are a bit tired, the speakers are in very nice condition cosmetically.

*Note these are local pickup only from our shop in Glen Rock, NJ. You're also welcome to arrange your own courier or freight if you're further away.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:

Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
