Perhaps the first time a Dada Electronics Quad 405-2 was given its own upgrade to 'Club Class'!?
As you know I did the upgrade work while flying S61 helicopters up in the Shetland Islands. At the end of the contract I flew the helicopter with the 405-2, back to our home base in Penzance, Cornwall, UK.
The 405 loved the trip!
Today Justin added:
Just back to Cornwall from Stornoway in west Scotland.
Plugged in the 44 ....and I'm very very pleased to say it works like a dream; perfect in every way. There is certainly a most worthwhile improvement in the sound -- much greater detail, transparency and channel separation. I am looking forward to plenty of great music as the winter nights draw in.
I am absolutely delighted with the 'Dada improved' 44/405-II combination as it sounds fantastic. I hope lots of other Quad 44 owners will take the trouble to do the Dada up-grade and re-discover how good this pre-amp can sound. We all know how superb your 405 mods sound!
The photo shows the freshly upgraded 44 ready to ride home to Cornwall on the instrument dash-board! ...actually it had to go under the seat for safety....
How about a challenge for the weirdest places to find a Quad?
