Hi Michael—thanks for reviewing the Quad VA One. I’ve been intrigued by this piece for a while, and am considering it for a small, “retro” inspired system in my basement. Quad makes a pair of speakers that they sometimes market with the amp- i’d like to hear them with speakers priced more closely to the amp than the two you auditioned.
Enjoying the new blog. now when i type “t-w-i-t-t-e-r” into my browser, auto-fill takes me to a better place.
