Hi Soundhappy,
Thank you, that was a very useful link. I have only ever wound small RF coils before.

Default Quad ESL

As you probably know, I have two pairs of Quad ESL.
First pair I think quite O.K..
But second one is a nightmare.
It is entirely my fault, because I wasn't careful enough.
I believed what the seller said, they were refurbished by Mr. Ottó Popori, an electrostatic speaker expert in Hungary.
Yeah, that was the case for sure, but he was forget to say, he burned down the ESLs, after they were refurbished by Mr. Popori.
Well, this is sucks, what can I do?
I phoned Mr Popori, and told him the story.
He is a very generous person, and he promised me, he will refurbish the ESLs for me in warranty !!!
So I delivered these to him.
And, if I was there, he invited me for some music listening.
He not only repair ESLs and Martin Logans, but he even makes electrostatic speakers on his own experience.
I must have to say, I was very impressed with the sound I was heard.
Here you can find some pictures:
POPORI ELECTROSTATIC loudspeaker
Anyway, he is a pretty interesting person, he likes beers, which is an important property, as you know.
I'm very curious, of sounds of the refurbished ESLs.
I think, there will be an other pair to refurbish, if I will be satisfied.

P.s.:
In the last picture you can see someone's familiar face, you probably know him.

Gyuri.....

Being a fisherman I know when a salmon is firmly hooked by a well tied fly!!

When you collect the original pair of Quads from the real overhaul and have two pairs overhauled you will be asking questions about frames for another pair!!

Hope that all is good for you.
