Quad ESL 57 are there better speakers out there??

28 years of searching i never imagined i would find heaven at long last. So realistic so present so alive. After 25 years of searching for the time machine that can transport me back to the very moment the recording was made, and have me standing there next to the musician I have found it.

Feed it glorious amps like my audionote p4 signature monos and the jadis jps1 pre all headed by the very first DAC that was ever made the TDA 1540 in the form of the Revox B225 and join this to the best speaker i have ever heard and you are there at the finishing line.

NO Bass crap, bring it right out into the middle of a large room fgive space to breath put it on heavy metal stands remove the oak feet and put a couple of ebony pucks underneath and you will never look back. Well thats how I feel right now.

People who have lived with quads set up properly with high quality equipment need only respond.

Let me know what you think , and what is the next best step stack them in pairs??

Who would believe the two of the oldest technologies could make hifi sound so real????????
This really dates me but back in the seventies Mark Levinson sold a system called the HQD. This was made up of stacked Quads with Decca supertweeters in the middle. The H might of stood for Hartley, I don't remember but I tried to make my own. I had two pairs of Quads and bought the Decca and then had a carpenter make a stand. Then I had two 9' transmission line enclosures built and put two KEF woofers in for the bass. Talk about audionirvana. I moved to a condo and didn't have room for it anymore but it was awesome.
the answer to your question regarding my mastering response is that the quads technically are not full range or clincal enough to hear every little annoying detail one would want for mastering. Nor can they take high SPL to turn them up loud.

For listening, they are great and I have a pair, so i understand what you are saying and how you feel about them.

yes you are right i do believe these are the best speakers ever, hence i only want to hear from those that believe that is the case and how i may go forward from here.
But thats not the question you posted.You asked if better loudspeakers exist and they sure do.But its great your happy with what you own so many never find what they like.But as far as state of the art quads while musical- fun are far from it.But whats wrong with a bit of musical fun;) Ive owned so many electrostatics inc quads.Did you have your quads restored? If not this might be your 1st step.
what speaker is timbrally less inaccurate than the original quad ? better is so subjective that it is almost a meningless word. no one describes what better is, so when the word is used its meaning is ambiguous and undefined.
