It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: I also think the Cain's are Gorgeous

Unfortunately, the one time I heard them long ago at the Mid-West Audio Fest, I didn't like their sound at all. Back then I had built a Foreplay and 2A3 Paramours but went in the opposite direction driver-wise to Wayne Parham's big bass reflex/horn designs. I built a few of those, then some of my own and finally, my main speakers the past ten years, 4 Pis with JBL 2226s, B&C DE-250 compression drivers, and Wayne's own design catenary horns.

More than 10 years ago I built a UX-45, direct coupled Parafeed design from a circuit Doc and John Tucker scribbled on the back of a napkin at CES. Still frequently in service for my Classic Jazz collection those 2 watt'rs now give way to my recently completed 60 Watt KT-88 push-pull mono blocks based on an extreme update of the Mullard 5-20 circuit published at Diyaudio.com. Those have re-kindled my love of symphonic, large forces music.

What a shame Terry passed on so young. He was a brilliant craftsman and I spent a lot of time at his website ogling his commercial cabinetmaking designs.
