Quad 405 2x been hacked about. Info needed!

Recommended Posts

Front label. It's exactly the same label and font as my other standard 405.

I wonder if it has been reworked by Russ Andrews?

I don't think Russ is a bodge artist so I would be doubtful of that one .. quite frankly it looks a mess and no way would Russ leave rusty holes and do such a soldering bodge on the addition capacitors.   Also it would have a proper mains inlet or soldered on mains lead.   It is kind sir - a bodge (and probably a very dangerous one).

When reworked people usually have the speaker outputs on each side to shorten the run from the amp circuit boards, similarly the RCA input sockets are more to the center right where there is plenty of space and to have as near to equal cable runs as possible.  You can see how the example I showed was clearly done by a very knowledgeable or professional person.

Sounds like I'm best to Ebay it for spares or repair then.  Thanks for the advice all :)

Death trap methinks .. get an expert to sort it or sell it on.
