As I wrote for the Quad II amplifier, the Quadd 22 have small sized electrolityc capacitors. After changing them by new values in order to get 20 Hz without feedback in all stages, the sound is just better, and not only in the basses. The overall sound become cleaner and more precise, and the dynamic get much better in the basses.

Without these modiications, I will put it 7 or 8 stars, mainly because of the lack of attack in the basses with music styles like jazz-rock.
