    When I got back to work from Skip's get together everyone at work was wanting to know how it went?
    I tried to tell them you don't want to know!

    I'm still lost of having to deal with the loss of such a wonderful experience Audio wise! not to mention the thrill of hanging out with everyone at Skips!

    that in it self is so special (specially after having to miss last years get together to be with family in need)

    You and other are lucky Skip found those Italian company's like : Rosso's & Mastersound & Northstar!

    But my Usher are so sweet I don't feel left out ;)

    Just tell them....

    I stole a pair of Ushers, got Skip liquored up, packed a few boxes, and just walked out with a pair of speakers...

    Say it

    PS, Skip was tired and didn't have much room left in his car ;)

    heck -- Gary Kaufman uses a pair of McIntosh MC-60s to power his "sub"woofers.

    Said woofers' enclosure started life as an Altec 210 :)
