    Alright, you MADE ME say this. Although I appreciate you dropping the space before your question marks and exclamation points, you should limit yourself to ONE of either. Plus, in most cases, a period would be best at the end of sentences that aren't questions.

    And before anybody thinks I am being a total doosh, I like verb and I know he has a great sense of humor. :p

    As far as the question, I only have pics of the boards that Trey (Version3) made for me. (see below)

    ^^^ Nice addition! I've never seen that ad, nor (?!?) those loudspeakers before.
    I may be wrong about the latter observation -- but not the former! This is a new one on me.

    Thanks very much for posting it to this thread.

    You've never seen LS or S series?

    apparently? ;)

    I kind of dropped out of hifi from the mid-1980s until the late 1990s (kids and career).

    Funny from what I've seen you never dropped back in.. :p

    Number 18 on the Reader's Service Card - how hard can it be to figure out? ;)

    I have that same SDA ad but in a pamphlet form. It has 6 pages PLUS the front and back covers. I posted it from elsewhere on Club Polk a few months ago. I'll check to see if I can find it. It was very interdasting. :p

    "Everything you hear is true" always made me think of the Firesign Theater album "Everything You Know Is Wrong". :p

    Interesting that the XO plate in the picture appear to be badly sun-faded and they chose them for the picture.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Stradivari v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X1 preamplifier Signed by Poppa himself, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds



    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    I just discovered (I think??) this ad -- July 1974 Audio.
