The name of Peter Walker and the company he founded - QUAD have been ingrained in the history of Audio Reproduction around the world. Not only famous for the classic Electrostatic Loudspeakers he designed in 1957, were followed in 1958 with Stereo Reproduction. Peter Walker’s name has always been associated with the electronics he developed - in particular Amplifiers. Peter Walker’s valve and transistor designed amplifiers live on today in QUAD’s ranges of valve and transistor amplifiers


Quad products have always been some of the finest audio products in the world.
In 1936, Peter Walker started producing public address systems, few could predict that many of his products would have the longevity and the esteem with which they would be held. In the 1950’s, Peter Walker and Gilbert Briggs (founder of Wharfedale), embarked on a series of famous concerts, demonstrating that real high-fidelity music reproduction should be virtually indistinguishable from a live performance. They toured as far as the United States and demonstrated in venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall and the Royal Festival Hall. Audiences were truly amazed in the similarity that the Quad amplifiers were able to reproduce relative to the live performance.
