A rare BBC-spec Quad 521f power amp!
Well out of my price range at 1.4+ kilodollars on Reverb, even if things were normal, which they most definitely no longer are. It is assumed that this pricing is because of it’s rarity.
Like the uploader, I find the male inputs very weird and I would change them out to the proper female connectors. Why would the BBC specify such weirdness? Nice Speakons, usually the civilan 520f has XZLRs! Which is rather weird in itself.
Anyhoo, I would love one of these… Quad amplification is nothing short of legend.

(We do have the original copy of the actual blueprints from the Jackson studio that will be included with this listing)
In addition to following the spec of the original design, they were taken to the next level of performance with some very nice upgrades.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Excellent. The cabinets are very clean. T-215A 001A has a very small chip in the veneer on the face of the cabinet at its bottom edge. T-215A 002A has a dust cover that has a faint dimple and the mid horn has 2 small dings that have been covered with a black marker. The horns have a few small chips and nicks that noticeable upon close inspection.
The tweeters have scuffs on the outer housing from the way they’re mounted in the stands. The high-frequency input terminal gasket on T-215a 001A is a little loose, as the panel is missing two screws but does not affect operation at all. All 6 cables are in very good condition but a few of the tips need to be replaced. Overall in amazing condition!
WORKING CONDITION: Excellent. All cabinets are internally wired with very high-quality cable and components and sound phenomenal. The low-frequency cabinets are particularly robust, deep and impactful, while the mid-high cabinets give a graceful, deep soundstage. The additional tweeters finish the top octaves, bringing clarity and smooth detail to the picture. These speakers can go loud but sound excellent at any volume level. Overall in excellent condition!

Just a bit of audio porn. Anything Augspurger is at the top of the world class class. And I love stuff like this. I dream of owning them just because they can truly reproduce the sounds of whatever we put through them. There are other companies that are cool, too, like the Ocean Ways and Westlakes mentioned above and super monitors like Barefoot, PMC, ATC and folks like that. Most are custom made for the individual studios. They are all, in a word, stunning. But Idk, I just dig Augspurgers.
Did You Know Gorillas Can Sing?

Spy gorilla witnesses wild mountain gorillas singing, a phenomenon caught on camera for the first time.
After being accepted as a member of the gorilla family, spy gorilla witnessed some of the family’s most intimate moments like eating, singing and flatulating. This is the first time that wild mountain gorillas have been caught singing on camera.
I love this!
From here, off a Facebook post…
Robot ‘spy’ gorilla records wild gorillas singing and farting, because nature is beautiful
By Mindy Weisberger – Senior Writer 12 hours ago
This is the first time that singing mountain gorillas have been caught on camera
Though human camera operators typically keep a safe distance from wild gorillas, the lifelike animatronic gorilla spy was able to infiltrate a troop and film their daily routines, which included an impromptu suppertime serenade.
Footage of the singing gorillas is featured in the first episode of “Spy in the Wild 2” and shows the apes reclining amid dense foliage in a sanctuary in Uganda. As they munched on leaves and stems, they hummed to themselves in contentment, accompanying their vegetarian meal with a vocal “chorus of appreciation,” according to the episode’s narrator.
And the gorillas produced a chorus of mealtime music in more ways than one. Under the spy robot’s watchful camera eye, the great apes also revealed that they were extremely gassy, punctuating their dinner with near-constant bursts of flatulence.
Ooh, it’s all so simply marvelous…
Fairchild 670 compressor serial number 10. (!!!) Normally, the faceplates are pretty faded, but this one is pristine. Possibly a different finish used early on.
Wow. This was at the notorious Vintage King Audio. The uninitiated may be shocked to learn that this multi-decade old compressor is worth at least $30,000 and probably more because of the non-faded faceplate. Wow, indeed.
I worked on an audio / video installation at Mr. Fairchild’s apartment in Manhattan with a systems installation contractor I once worked for.
[I am assuming that Tonyo is really Tokyo.]
The inimitable Bozak CMA 10-2DLA stereo mixer preamplifier.
A true legend, it has a cult following. I would love to have one; for the phono circuits, especially. It’s out of my league, of course, price-wise. This one’s going for $2,100 bucks.
Made with no nonsense just 15 minutes Northeast of here. Extremely highly regarded by everyone. This was the first pro level DJ mixer and was a standard for the then-new field.
All hail Rudy Bozak!
Superior speakers, too, came from Rudy Bozak, a point-source dude!.
OMG how lovely!
The fantabulous Quad 12L Studio!
These are basically my 12Ls but in a powered version! And we know how good Quad amps are, eh? That said, mine are powered by a Hafler P3000 transnova, so mine just might win! Ha! Hahaha!
Gosh, even so, I would love to get these, just because they are what they are — but, there’s my persistently non-existent budget standing firmly in the way, as I doubt that affirm will help me. As usual.
Yesterday late, I learned of Brenton’s passing and felt so sad. He was great to listen to and interviewed folks that probably wouldn’t have gotten on most shows. He was so down to earth. Sigh.
Here he is interviewing the late, great JC Johnson, perhaps the Indiana Jones of cryptozoology.

“I’m sure that they exist.”
On this date eleven years ago, Jane Goodall sent shockwaves through the scientific community and the public at large with comments made during an NPR interview.
Goodall is considered one the 20 most influential living scientists.

Dr. Jane Goodall Speaks About Bigfoot-PGF Normal Speed
Oct 7, 2006
Here’s the radio call-in show in which Dr. Jane Goodall has a little something to say about Bigfoot. Listen carefully to what Dr. Goodall says, she is one of the world’s leading authorities on primates.
Dr. Jane Goodall being interviewed by Ira Flatow, National Public Radio’s “Science Friday,” September 27, 2002.
The color copy of the Patterson Footage that I found on the ‘net obviously has something wrong with it. It plays too fast. I believe the originator of that video clip may have assumed that the film was shot in 24fps (instead of the 16fps that it was probably shot in), resulting in the video being played 1/3 faster than natural speed. This creates an unrealistic motion in the creature’s gait. I found that very annoying so I tried to fix it in this video. I included the MK Davis ‘walking with bigfoot’ enhancement footage, also.
Davis is a real disappointment and has done quite a bit more harm than good to the field.
Dr. Goodall, on the other hand, is a personal hero and exemplifies what it is to be a scientist and a field researcher. I would bet a million bucks that she could do the same with Sasquatch as she has done with gorillas.
The creature is absolutely real and people need to come to terms with that. It is not at all an exotic concept and is an everyday world-wide occurrence in the forests of this planet.

America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilisation, by Graham Hancock
Published on Aug 9, 2019
Graham Hancock’s new book, published 2019, is the New York Times top 10 nonfiction bestseller “America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization”. From March through June 2019, Graham toured widely in the UK, the US and Canada, speaking about the book. The talk, offered free-to-view here, is the only version that will be available online and was given in Graham’s hometown, Bath, on Saturday April 6th 2019. The event organiser was Toppings Books and the venue was Christ Church, Julian Road, Bath. Graham’s daughter, Shanti Faiia, formerly a lawyer, now a healer and yoga teacher, sings the song “Waiting on an Angel” in the opening 5 minutes before the talk begins.

Videography and video editing by Luke Hancock
Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally bestselling author, has made it his life’s work to find out — and in America Before he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion.
Hancock’s research takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientific rebels responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs. In the process, from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon rainforest, he reveals that ancient ‘New World’ cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected ‘Old World’ cultures.
Have archaeologists focussed for too long only on the ‘Old World’ in their search for the origins of civilization while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the ‘New World’? ‘America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilisation’ is the culmination of everything that millions of readers have loved in Hancock’s body of work over the past decades, namely a mind-dilating exploration of the mysteries of the past, amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today.
I was fortunate enough to catch Graham giving this lecture at a lovely church in the east SoHo. It was wonderful and revealed much more new info than I ever expected.
It all started here!
That is HUGE.
Bigfoot screams Sierra Nevada, July 1, 2019
Published on Jul 12, 2019
My family and I returned to a spot where we went camping last year. No reason on the spot, The wife just found this location on maps. Last year, as we slept, my 12 year old son woke up to something slapping our trailer. As he was looking up at the window thru the blinds, he saw something very big walk by the window covering the whole window.. from the ground to the top of the window is 7 feet.. it scared him so bad he jumped in bed with us crying hysterically. So we decided to go back, but this time with my sound equipment.. All we were hoping was to get some wood knocks. Well, we got more than that… it went on for a little more than 9 minutes. Needless to say, we will never forget that night…
I am going to need to listen to this a few more times. Yes.
These screams, after just this first listen, are some of the strangest sounds I’ve clapped ears on. Quite a lot of them don’t sound much like screams to my mind. As of now. I am at a loss for words to describe them, even. Tomorrow, when I’m less pooped.
Is it … singing? Is it a concert? Of sorts?
That would be strange.
Interesting discussion going on here.

Somewhere amongst the rubble is a CD by these guys that I got at an INFO conference many, many moons ago.
Here is the basic story of the recordings:
The Bigfoot Recordings – A True High Sierra Wilderness Story
Challenged by skeptics, but time-tested by scientific analysis, these accounts bring to the reader an exciting report of unsurpassed vocal interaction between humans and Bigfoot. Recorded on reel-to-reel tape in 1972-74 at the famous Sierra Camp in California. Take the journey into this unsurpassed phenomenon and decide for yourself; is Bigfoot real, or just the product of a colorful imagination.
Volume 1 CD is 40 minutes. Produced in 1996 by Ron Morehead, it features very clear vocalizations captured in 1972 by Alan Berry, the investigative reporter brought into camp. Narrated by Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker) of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” fame.
Volume 2 CD is 40 minutes. Produced in 2003. Written, produced and narrated by Ron Morehead. It features rhythmic rapping-pounding sounds, and almost understandable phrases emanating from these creatures. The very same sounds that have been thoroughly analyzed by a former military cryptologic linguist as having a discernible language!

I wonder if they used a Nagra?
