    Interesting design. I like the modular woofer section. I am sure we will get your opinion on their sound.

    Re: Holger Stein Visits Suncoast Audio - Again

    Hi Mike,

    Great to see my friend, Holger in Florida. He is very knowledgeable and an excellent person to deal with. I have been using his products including the entire set of Harmonisers and blue suns, the record mat and also his Aventurin cartridge, which I find competes very well with my other wonderful carts like the Zyx, Etsuro Urushi and the Colibri MS.

    His speakers, I believe, are well thought out designs and I have heard great things about them. Alas, haven’t had a chance to listen to them, especially since Covid took its toll on Audio Shows like hi-end Munich.

    Cheers

    Sujay

    It was impromptu and I had to leave quickly to get the kids. He also talks very softly. Great guy….but on Seinfeld, he would be the soft talker!

    Yep, I get it, Mike. No worries. I was just making a general suggestion for future interviews, as you do make nice videos!
