    Hey guys, the reverb, dynamic processor and the eq are just a light show for my enjoyment at night there not in the signal path I just like the cool factor.

    I thank both of them every time we talk, I talked to him about the Breo and the Pioneer and how I prefer the Pioneer over then Breo and he thinks a more laid back speaker set and different speaker cables. He told me you can tune the Breo with speaker cables, I thought he was kidding but he wasn't.
