Bottom Line:   
I have the Quad 77 Integrated and compared it to my NAD 315 BEE.
After that the NAD went to the bedroom.
A great Amplifier with superb sound, very robust.
Great soundstage, very fast, never getting aggressive.
A lot of power too.
Built quality is exceptionally good.

Bottom Line:   
Very well build amp. Sounds really sweet and analog. The case and looks are a real piece of luxury. The remote operation is a crap. Non ergonomic, non convenient, non compatible, non reliable, non reasonable (the function of a remote control must be a very simple one, volume higher or lower, source, on/off) This remote doesn't happen to easily manage this very basic and simple operations. All of the cheapest Chinese gear do it very well (even the made in Iran ones). The remote is almost half big as the amp itself :)))), heavy. The rechargeable batteries within are placed directly on the electronic plate among sensitive microelectronic components with a great acid damage risk. Repair costs are the same as buying a new and pretty good amp. A designated battery compartment within the remote unit was for Quad probably a big problem. For almost all other electronic manufacturers it is not a problem sins 50-40 years (including the most cheapest). You cant replace this remote Chernobyl because it will not work with any other universal remote (except the pronto perhaps and the price is 1000 euro).

Bottom Line:   
I have the 77 integrated amp and CD player, swapped for my older Quad 67/306 pre/power and 67 CD player. I like the Quad sound - natural-sounding with vocals and strings - but given my wide musical taste wanted a "heavier" sound, hence the swap. It sounds more powerful and "darker" than the 66 system, with more weight underpinning rock and orchestral music, but also slightly slower. If you like Quad's tube amps the 66 system may be a better match sonically, but the 77 system is satisfying with a wider range of music. Drives the Harbeth HLP3 better than the 306 power amp. Great system to come home to after a hectic work day.

Bottom Line:   
Open letter to Antonio Mendez ; have you replaced the batteries in the remote? These expire after a few years, depending on how long the remote has been in storage.

Contact Quad or your dealer to either supply replacements which you can solder in to the remote yourself, or get Quad or its dealer to fit them for you.

Bottom Line:   
The QUAD 77 only deserves one discription: ABSFAB It's fantastic to listen to. I can recommend this one from the hearth. As a lot of people switch to surround you'll find this amplifier easy as secondhand. It's quality that will enrich your life for years to come, even if it is a secondhand model. My advise, get it now!

I just refoamed some JBL Lancer 77's
