    I've just aquired a Quad 50D but the guy didn't ship one cable, managed to persuade him to pass on the power cable but I have no audio in&out cables. Does anyone know where I can source these, preferably in UK but not that important. Or even better, can I just fix those cables in with matchsticks without using those touchel like connectors, and if so where can I get the pin diagrams?
    Thanks

    There is a wealth of Quad information on the Web - but start at:

    MKH 800's

    There are a lot of different variants of Quad equipment made for different Customers (such as the BBC and other broadcasters) - so different connectors will be seen.

    If you have a problem finding the connectors - post another message......

    (I am in the UK)

    Not having much joy just now, there's a few of the phone numbers out of date. The response I got from the guy down in the southwest of England was unbelievable. He would not help me and he seemed genuinly shocked that I was intending to use my Quad 50D as a foldback amp. "You cant do that, its a labarotory device, not for audio".

    I wonder who that was (as I am also in the SW of England.....!).

    E-mail me directly via my Web site if you think that I might be able to help you further. I have a variety of connectors in stock - and sources for most old types.

    I am intrigued to know what this chap might think to learn that many Quad amps are used in Studios for driving headphones! Surely not!
