Having the living room remodeled and re-arranged presented a “Golden” opportunity to address the TV viewing and the audio system in the main living space of the house.
Dali Callisto is such an innovative product, after accepting an invitation to hear the system that included the 6C floor-standing version, I immediately worked on getting a pair of the stand-mounted 3-way powered 2C monitor.
Stunning in Aria Blue, the Persona 3F speaker is the “smallest” of the full-range floorstanding speaker line that includes the larger 5F, 7F, and powered 9H. The 9H also includes the amazing Anthem room-correction ARC software.

High-End tube design phono preamplifier inspired by its successful but pricier predecessor, the EAT E-Glo S revealed everything in my system’s potential. Switching from moving magnet (MM) to moving coil (MC) cartridges is simply accommodated while providing flexibility for any system.
Any fan of Parasound Audio gear knows all too well the “JC” moniker in their Halo line stands for John Curl. Before joining Parasound to work with founder Richard Schram, John Curl became legendary for his Vendetta Research SCP-2 phono preamplifier. About 200 were produced, all were hand-built.

Anyone who is a fan of Parasound Audio gear know all too well the “JC” moniker in their Halo line stands for John Curl, (always referred to as Legendary John Curl).
