I have a quad 34, the later orange logo design along with the 306 and 66 CD player.

My friend is thinking of selling his 99 preamp/CD/with the 909 amplifier.

I am quite happy with what I have, but I wonder if the newer equipment will improve the experience that much more. What say YOU?

IIRC you live in the USA, so - sweeping assumption - you may have a larger listening space than many of us Brits. If you like loud music and have the space, I’d always plump for the bigger amp, given a choice.

What speakers are you using?

I doubt you will notice any difference

No idea, as I suspect would be the case for almost all here - but if he's a friend, surely he'll let you borrow for a day so you can decide?
No. It's actually my friend's father's equipment, and he lives 80 miles away. I am too lazy to bring my speakers there, or bring the whole bunch of kit back and then back again, possibly.

Right now, KEF C55s I planned on getting larger more full range speakers. I think I know what I am going to do...
