    Got another review posted:

    https://positive-feedback.com/show-reports/axpona-2018-2/
    In some ways, I've saved the best (well, almost) of my more affordable choices for last. These last two rooms share two qualities in common: they both featured a global selection of components, and they both offered superb sound by any measure, not just the "affordable" qualifier that I have applied to most of the rooms featured in this segment of my report....

    The writer had some nice things to say about the unique product lines you carry, well done sir sticking with your guns and carrying things that's aren't all that common this side of the water. Looks like your doing your business right.
    Living room: Samsung UN55KU7000 4K UHD HDR 55 inch TV, Marantz CD6004, Pro-Ject Debut Carbon, Parasound zPhono, Mac Mini, Oppo BDP-93, XBox One S 2Tb, Kenwood DPX792BH car deck for radio purposes, Marantz SR5010 AVR, Parasound HCA-1200II, Front SDA 2 modded with Larrys Rings and RD0-194-1 tweeters, Rear Onkyo SKF-4800 Towers, Center CSiA6, BOOM Tannoy TS2.12 Sub, Audioquest Evergreen interconnects just about everywhere except from AVR to amp, MIT Terminator 4, MIT AVT3 speaker cables with extra terminals covered up Monitor 5 Jr+ in the wings for a center channel.

    So Cool to hear all the good reviews stuff about Skip's Room.

    I have not been blowing smoke up you asp for years about what Skip and his business and his rooms have done for years just to help others to find what maybe they have been looking for in their Audio search. Just to tickle your ....

    Get your self to any of the show Skip has been painfully doing thru out the years and let you own ear's till you what you might want to know about some really good Audio! o:)

    Yes I am Bias as I have come to know him as a trusted friend!

    I'm on cloud 9 because of the Ushers I am currently playing( ain't that right Mikey?)

    Another review just hit the webz. The BoX price is $500 too high - I'm going to see if I can get him to correct that.

    Of my group of favorites, this was probably the smallest room with the simplest setup, but Derek Skipworth of Audio Thesis had this room simply pure joy to listen to. This room made use of some equipment platforms from Robert Maicks and Star Sound Technologies and the combination worked pure magic. The music that came across was absorbing and highly involving. I had not heard the Rosso’s sound as good as they did in this room. I was not expecting music from such a simple system to be that captivating, but it certainly was. This room was a treat to listen to music in.

    MastersounD Box Integrated Amplifier w/Phono $3,500

    North Star Design Supremo DSD DAC $4,000

    North Star Design Magnifico DSD Transport $4,000

    Rosso Fiorentino Certaldo Loudspeakers $6,500
