    Ya know the longer you guys moan, the longer I'm going to hold out. I've been back in town barely a day and have had other more pressing things to take care of.

    :D :p :D

    Ok, I just hooked it up for listening this weekend, I have to say this is a very nicely built unit, the remote it self is beautiful...

    With just the few songs I listened to I can tell it will be hard to pack this back up..

    There is one issue, and that being the XLR input on the left channel I had to wiggle it a couple times on the back of the unit to get full sound to come out of my left speaker..
    Outside of that it sounds incredible, it really gave me some great sounding lower end..

    Tomorrow when I spend some real time with it I will update more..

    Andy, we get a discount right?? B)

    Enjoy it while it's there, Larry! Looking forward to your review. And Brock's. >:) I assume he's buying one since he's hocking his tires on the FM...

    Brock, I keed, I keed! Take your time; we'll be here to read whenever your review is done.

    Nice Larry, she really is a fine sounding piece. With all the shipping, I'm wondering if that balanced connection hasn't been shaken loose somehow. Give us some more thoughts as you progress.

    Agreed, I'm actually thinking about purchasing one, yes I liked it that much..

    By the way the XLR was on my end, it's not the unit..

    You should, maybe even their next higher pre. I know Andy and Bob will stand behind their product too.

    Andy may even, if you buy one, come and cut your grass every third Thursday of the month. If you buy the bigger brother pre, he may even pick up the dog poo too.

    It has been sitting at UPS since Friday night as they do not deliver on weekends. It should be delivered mid morning and then I have the house to myself until 6. Can't wait!
