Stereo Times 2016 Most Wanted Components List
01/19/17 at 19:21:00
 
Wow ..... I wasn't aware of this until Steve sent me an email, but the Caintuck Audio Betsy Baffles were included in the Stereo Times 2016 Most Wanted Components List .....

The list can be found here.

Six pairs of speakers were included in the list, ranging from 450.00 for the Betsy baffles to 250,000.00 a pair for the Raidho D5.1 Speakers.

The Decware Zen Mystery Amp made the list as well .....

The list can be found here.

My heartfelt thanks to Frank Alles at Stereo Times for the positive review and considering the Betsy Baffles for this honor.

Happy listening,

Randy

Congratulations Randy!  That is fantastic news. Smiley  I recently got my Betsy's hooked up to my Super Zen to test them out before installing in my coffee shop.  They sound beautiful.  I am really impressed with the dynamics and range of these wonderful speakers.  As I outfit my other shops, you will definitely be getting more orders from me.

And congrats to you too Steve on the ZMA making the list.  Go Decware!

Quite an accomplishment, Randy, when the next pair up the price ladder is over 4 times the cost of yours. I hope that this exposure leads to much more interest in your products in the near future.

And Steve, you deserve all the honors that you have gotten and more for continuing to come up with new products, and for continually improving your current ones.

Hi Bottlehead,

Thanks for the good wishes .....

To add to your thoughts about Steve ..... he is also responsible for setting up the Betsy baffle review in Stereo Times.

The audio industry and hobby is indebted to Steve for many things .....

Best wishes,

Randy

He he,  And the most expensive in the list is 555 times the cost.  $450 x 555.55 = $250K

That's rolling with some pretty high company ; )
