I hope that you are all safe and healthy out there! I think I am ready to take the plunge into single driver speakers. My system is a fairly simple vinyl-only system in a 12x15 room. I have an Acoustic Signature Wow XL turntable, Don Sachs phono stage, and a Mystere ia11 (40wpc). A couple of years ago I tried a pair of Contrast Audio bookshelf speakers. They were high efficiency with a 5 inch woofer and a tweeter that only kicked in at 10khz, so it apparently had some of the characteristics of single driver speakers. At first, they sounded thin and brittle, but a few weeks later I was stunned by the clarity and the realism of the sound. Although I've tried other gear, that sound has always stuck with me. I listen primarily to jazz with some other artists mixed in (Dylan, Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Richard and Linda Thompson, etc.). Nothing too hard/heavy, and I don't play the system loud.
So, I was wondering if any of you have had the chance to compare the CAM and SAM. Do you have a preference for one or the other, taking into account the music I listen to? I'm not worried about the difference in cost. I will also talk with Louis, of course.
Thank you for any input that you have. Sincerely, Scott
