Hi, came across a pair of QEDs, which from the outer appearance, in very good condition. Because the rubber cover cannot be removed cannot tell the under the hood condition but Im assuming good also for its age but prepared for  potential issues. So a few questions, any general thoughts on this 40 year old speaker? Do you recall if the surrounds are foam or rubber, and based on the description what would you consider a very fair and not insulting to the seller price offer? This would be mated to a Yamaha cr 820. Thanks much, Dave
Way back in the day, there was a store near Kerrytown (Ann Arbor) closing out a pair of the largest model of the Time Frames.  I was so tempted, but I was poor.  I changed my mind the next day, went back, but they had already been sold.  One of several significant purchasing (or non-purchasing) regrets.
I still have mine ... bought them around 1980 or so.  They sounded very similar to the Time Windows, which were awesome, but beyond my budget at the time.  They have survived the other components I bought back then- integrated amp and tuner (Onkyo T-9 that I wish I still had), and a Philips 212 TT (now a Rega P3).  I still think they sound pretty good.  I think the weak link now is my Sony receiver, which I want to upgrade, but not sure to what.  I suspect the cartridge (AT VM540ML) is not a good match for the phono stage, or maybe the phono stage isn't much to begin with.
