I am a new member from the United States.
I want warn everyone of a scammer and thief.
Alain Courteau (formely designer and owner) Of Revelation Audio, Of Mascouche, Quebec.
Alain Courteau formely designed and built speakers for Odyssey Audio.
But Klaus severed all connections and working relationships with him, several years. I wish I had known that, three years ago.
I paid Alain Courteau $1,500 USD (in the form of an United States Postal Service International money order), three years ago; to build me a pair of Lyra 2 floorstanding loudspeakers. I have the money order stubs and proof he cashed them in.
As of today, I have not received a pair of Lyra 2 and I have not received a full refund. I have spent the better part of the last three years trying patiently to work with Alain, as he repeatidly promised me he would deliver the product. He never delivered anything and never refunded my money. He ceased responding to my phone calls and e-mails, in February of 2009.
I was foolish to be patient with him and wait this long. I wanted to be patient and give him a chance to make good on this, because he worked for Klaus of Odyssey Audio. As it turns out, I should have discussed this with Klaus a long time ago.
Over the last 10 months, I have been attempting to go through the legal process and I am searching for an attorney to handle this case. Unfortunately, it appears this will cost me more money in attorney fees than the amount Alain Courteau owes to me. With no guarantee the money will ever be recovered/reimbursed from Alain Courteau.
I was fool to trust this man, Alain Courteau.
I'm here to warn everyone else.
