"When I finally sat down to listen I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. It was the best sound I’ve ever heard in my home — and I’ve had some unbelievable sound systems in my living rooms over the years." ~ www.nbcnews.com

I have heard a number of Quad systems and without invoking any of the TOS's, I can simply say that if I could afford them, they would be in my home.

FWIW, Philips Classics used the QUAD ESL-63 as its reference speaker for many years. I don't know exactly when they started using them, but it must have been from the early 80's until the mid 90's. I bought my pair in 1983.
It's very well possible that their recordings from that period sound superior on the ESL-63 because they were recorded, mixed and mastered on them.
