    I personally never expect bookies to put out much lower end. There have been a few I came across that does indeed, do it exceptionally well.

    I always look and only look at the mids. It is magic to get right and blend. All else is personal preference, highs and lows.

    With bookies, in a small room. No need. In a bigger one, musical subs.

    I will end with.. I look forward to it as well, like you. I believe the Rosso are special.

    Cheers,

    Halen
