Last thing I need is another pair of speakers right now but those would be a "match made in heaven" with my Berning AE-230. I may toss in a bid, thanks for the heads up.

Wow, 465 bucks for Quad 63's.! Was that you? I heard the Berning 230 amp on Quad 57's and it was sweet. :thumb:

Nope, chickened out. Long drive and no solid explanation to give my wife.  :(

My buddy Rex bought a pair new years ago and paid about 6K.

What preamp would go well with the Quad 63's? I have them driven by a Music Reference RM-9 power amp.

Hi, I have the same setup:  The ESL 63's driven by an RM-9 power amp. Depending on whether or not you listen to LP's, how about just using a passive preamp for volume control? Or what about the RM-4+, which is passive line stage but tube-powered phono?
