Formerly I was running my X30 via line-out to my QUAD 33/303 pre/power amps to my ESL-57 electrostatic speakers - sadly my QUAD 33 died on Friday :cry:

I spoke to the nice folks at QUAD and asked if they thought that the amp in the X30 could satisfactorily drive the ESLs (they are notoriously hard to drive) - they looked at the X30 specs for me and thought that there should be no problem.

Well after some time spent re-wiring on Saturday (the ESLs require a 13 amp power supply - formerly taken from the 33) I am happy to report that an X30 can happily drive the ESL-57s directly - and very sweet they still sound driven that way :D 8-)

Just posting this for the benefit of any future QUAD owner who wonders about this.

Peter
