1999 - Day 4)
Whether playing CDs or LPs, Kevin Hayes' VAC electronics (coupled with Thiel's CS6 loudspeakers) had an uncanny way of sounding like music. A liquid midrange, tight , articulate bass, and a wonderfully refined treble presentation were just a few of the hallmarks of this fine system. Kudos to the unassuming Mr. Hayes, who, with the Avatar, would appear to have another success on his hands.

Israel Blume, designer of the Milleniums, has a winner on his hands. The speakers have superb tonal qualities and play with amazing dynamics.
The Milleniums made beautiful music (from within a magnificently finished cabinet) in great accord with the Manley monoblocks. This seems to be a marriage made in audio heaven. The CAL CD player and Wireword cable helped things along nicely. Congratulations to all concerned.
1999 - Day 2)
The associated components (Panasonic DVD-A110 DVD player as transport, EAD Theatre Master Ovation preamp/processor, Sunfire Cinema Grand power amplifier, Synergistic Reference Designer's Reference cables, and Sound Anchor equipment stands) were chosen carefully and reacted in true synergistic fashion with the VM-3s. Imaging and soundstage were obvious in their excellence, but it was the superb tonal quality that caught our ears. Congratulations Albert.
