handsomely crafted Soliloquy 6.5
loudspeaker ($5,995), designed by the
legendary Phil Jones, proved a knockout
strapped to the new Cary Audio Design
($4,000) CAD-280-SA (V12) amplifier.
This Class A/AB 100 watt ultra-linear
(50 Watt Triode), stereo amplifier
which, by the way comes equipped with
standard as well as balanced RCA inputs,
produced some of the best sound at the
show. I had the added pleasure of
meeting Srajan Ebaen, Soliloquy’s rep.
Mr. Ebaen gets thumbs up for his room
setup, which included an assortment of
tweaks, e.g., Aurios under the 6.5’s.
