Sleep soon! Too much listening and not enough sleep:)
The Cavalli LAu is stellar and as per our private conversations has a refined European overtones to it character. It adds to the sonics. I am definitely not in the wire with gain camp.
Yes, I am very interested in your Studio 6 v LAu with the Abyss thoughts.
For me, after auditioning the Q7, revaluation was necessary as I did not want to pursue a course of tuning my system that was beginning to sound too euphonic and sweet.
The Nordost is definitely complimentary, couldn't be happier.
We are both die hard audiophiles and more or less know, what a realistic sounding system is about. One of the attributes has to be that it sounds excellent with all genres.
The Abyss more than satisfies the above criteria for me.
