I was strongly influenced by him as well...

...although I hate to admit it.

I had just discovered high end audio and bought a pair Dahlquist DQ-10s when his first issue came out - they were his reference loudspeakers along with the electronic crossover and woofers.

Of course I bought those, too.

Then he rated the Rappaport PRE-1 as the best preamp. I was talking to a salesperson at Jonah Millers in downtown LA who said he wanted to sell his so I bought it.

Aczel said the best amps he had heard with his DQ-10s were the Quatre Gain Cells.

Quatre was located in the San Fernando Valley about an hour away and I saw an ad in the LA Times Audio Section for a sale they were having - I drove up and bought two of them.

So I was using Aczel's bi-amped Dahlquist reference system until the next issue of TAC came out when he traded in the DQ-10s for LS3-5as.
