ohhhhh wahhhhhhhhhh!!!! Laughing

well, the 405-2 sounds mighty nice with the calindas regardless. i still like my mcintosh MC60's better. smoother with far better top end.

i still like the quad though. i think i'll use it and the 34 preamp for a nice little bedroom system. screw bose! Wink

just gonna keep an eye out for some cute little kefs to sit side by side with the quads on our dresser.

see ya,
Robby

Sorry to disillusion you, but the Calinda was almost certainly in its development phase before even the first 405s were launched, let alone the 405-2. From memory, I think the listening room at that time had a pair of 303s modified to work in bridge mode; one for each channel.

In any case, the idea of "voicing a speaker with an amplifer" did not exist in the late 70s.
