    It would hurt my feelings to hear how hard they'd laugh at my "offer." lol. I don't have anywhere near the funds available to get them. Broke college student here! If someone were to buy all of my Energy Reference Connoisseur speakers, I'd have enough for a nice down payment on the C1s. I'd have to upgrade the McCormack amp to the DNA-225 or DNA-500 to drive the C1s sufficiently and that'd be expensive as well. After I graduate and get a good job I can start to think about the C1 Platinum and the DNA-500 :)

    I got a 1 bedroom executive suite, King in my room.

    Got a couch in the living room. I wonder if it actually fits his tall frame. Cuz he ain't sleeping next to me.

    We are at the peninsula Chicago.

    Joey, when have you last been to a show? You will be 16 miles away, you have to make it!

    Myself, I want to do two days this year to actually get to see everything and hang out a little longer in the rooms I like.

    This looks interesting...not sure which day yet.
