Hello,

I have a set of Quad II amps with GEC KT66 tubes that I want to sell but need advice. Would I be increasing or decreasing their value if I updated the power connection to IEC input and upgraded the RCA and binding posts? It is such a classic and such classics tend to be loved as-is so I'm not sure what the market wants.

Thank you!

IMHO, leave them them stock. Nt, posted on June 17, 2020 at 23:32:48

Munging any amp will typically reduce price !
What you think is a feature might not be in the potential buyers eyes.
A classical amp such as the quad II is well documented, any
changes that is not well documented will make harder for any future owner.

I'll do as you suggest and sell as-is.
