Quad 66 CD


The mid-80s saw Quad release another complete system, the Quad 66/606.

It was the first Quad system to have a remote control, and also, perhaps more significantly, the first Quad CD player, the Philips based 66 CD.

Quad had never made record decks or cassette players, so the introduction of the Quad CD player was quite a radical departure for the company.

At the time CD was still quite a new format but despite this the CD player sold well and has now become a permanent feature in the various Quad ranges.
