Certainly a well-qualified observer of Lou's artisanship. Consequently, a very insightful review. John hit on all those qualities that are key to my relationship with my Athenas - the first pair that Lou had produced. Near seamless presentation of the frequency spectrum, incredible efficiency and natural resolution of detail (partic. at low amplitudes), the true-to-source instrumental sound (partic. acoustic), etc.. - John got it.
Congratulations, Lou, and thank you!
