Those who know me will know that I have fetish desire for single ended stuff.   Now the Klipsch LaScalas have been my favorite high efficiency speaker for quite a long time, that is up until the day I was invited into Rene's home.  The Cain & Cain Abby is now my official new lover.

Wooo Whooo, these Cain & Cain Abbey babies are sexy indeed.  Tall, handsome, sleek, and they come with nice skin colors.   You would think they cost five grand or above.   Punch up the price and you'll be in for quite a pleasant surprise.

Food, Wine, and Cheese are always generously served at Rene's house.  BTW, he also has a source for some of the best tasting olives I have ever tried.

  Rene's Comments:

 

  Coming up shortly......

 

  

   Cain & Cain speakers, what you see here are Fostex full range drivers.  There is a fantastic mid range sweetness

   to these speakers, probably colored but they are pleasant colorations.

 

  

    Never mind how they sound, I'll buy these on looks alone !

 

  

 

  

 

  

   Running Spring Audio "Haley" power conditioner.

 

 

  

 

  

 

  

   The DPS turntable may have a small footprint, but the unit weights more than 50 lbs !
