Lowther America had a nice, refreshing system with their concept piece that uses a PM6A driver plus a pair of Seas W26 woofers.

This super sounding Class A zero feedback solid-state design was reviewed by our own senior editor Dick Olsher.

Tyler Acoustics had their Woodmere II floorstanding loudspeakers in artistic deep dark hand finished Italian Ebony wood. These are truly full range with D'Appolito configuration in this 185 lbs each cabinet. All Seas drivers and the critical
midrange drivers use neodymium for the magnet structure. If you want super deep 25Hz
bass, clean mid and silky-smooth highs, this could be the trip to
Cain & Cain is going strong in memory of Terry, who passed away 9 months ago, and the legend lives on with the cute little Noogi monitor & Spud subwoofer ($1600). The Noogie uses a 3-inch Fostex FF85K tweeter/midrange and 8-inch paper cone woofer. Included is a 25 wpc plate stereo amplifier for the highs and 50 watts for the woofer.
