    I owned a pair of AL++ that I got from Ricardo, who got them from Rich, who got them from ??? Nice speakers!

    Norm (RIP). Still miss him. Norm had the Black and the Oak AL's. IIRC both had the woofer upgrade. I think I did the woofer upgrades in one of them, the Oak AL's.

    Ed the SRT king said he melted the fuses on a pair of AL's cranking them up to see how loud they would play with the Krell amps...lol

    Candyliquor is known by few anymore but nonetheless famous. Not so much in a good way.

    Ron (rsaravan) was a whole different character and torment to the forum. Bye bye to both!

    I thought they were one and the same? The SL 2000 tweeter with resistor in series trick? Damn I'm getting old, memory foggy...

    It was funny at HQ Polk Fest. I'm Ron.....everybody looked...lol

    I hear Ron (candyliquor) is going with you?

    LOL, candyliquor...Famous for his "Coat Hanger" Speaker Wire!!!

    The blunt of a lot of ridicule, but he just kept coming back for more.

    Anne Bisson is HOT! The picture doesn't do her justice.

    Fun day! Skip's room looked and sounded great. I look forward to seeing some more Polkies tomorrow.

    I've heard through the grapevine that the Raidho setup is a can't miss setup. I had a few guys tell me my sound was in the top 3 they experienced and every time Raidho was at the top.

    Still my favorites. I wish they'd put them in a bigger room.
    Over all great weekend. It was great to finally put name's to faces!

    IIRC there was at least one set playing but i thought i seen 2 pairs
    My one take away was this one room had these bookies that had an impressive huge deep sound stage with very nice low end. I'm sorry i do not remember the speakers. After about 50+ rooms it all runs together.
    Remember that most rooms are packed tight and folks are trying to come and go. I didn't grab every piece of literature that was available. I like travelling lite. Some rooms it was very hard to get to the seats or get the perfect seat without folks to the left and the right sucking up your sound stage. Although this was my first I agree with scompracer that next time there will be no wasting as much time as i did in rooms that are 8-10yrs of wages to acquire.
    I sure was impressed with the Dan D'Agostino's amplifier that is art pure and simple.
