Quad ESL-57 Electrostatic Speakers - Legendary Performance - RESTORED


We just finished the restoration of these beauties where we installed new high frequency (HF) panels. The low frequency (LF) panels were also recently replaced, so this is essentially a new set of these INCREDIBLE speakers.

To avoid any damage to the HF panels, we've installed limiting circuitry so you can get the most out of them without much risk.

This is not a loud rock and roll speaker. Heck if you play them very loud you're likely ruin the panels! But boy can they project a natural voice or a cello, well enough to raise hairs on the back of your neck.

These are an all-original survivor pair. They feature the very sought after bronze fireplace grill in almost perfect condition, which is rare. There are a few dents highlighted in one of the pictures, but they're very presentable - one of the best we've seen.

The drivers work perfectly with no rattles or signs of stress. The power has been modernized, and the inputs are banana jacks which allows you to use modern connectors as long as they aren't very big. The wood side trim pieces look amazing...

Most audiophiles will agree there is no better speaker from this era. If you're an audiophile and have not owned a set of these yet, you owe it to yourself.
