    Hey Skip the LaQunita is sold out for the dates needed..any room near by you would recommend?

    Easy solution Daryl. Fly in to DFW on Friday and drive 2 hours to my house. We get up Saturday and drive 2.5 hours to Skips. Makes sense...right?

    Maybe some similarities, but at least the offer I made to you was good. I wasn't going to make you drive two hours just to get in my car and drive two more hours :D :D

    Oddly, my nads (not the audio variety) began hurting as soon as I read this post. :p

    The Volterra is in pieces right now. It will be back up and running once I get a soldering iron.

    If I come, I am driving down to be lazy...and most likely passing out in a drunken stupor in Skip's front yard. I can't be expected to bring my own gear that I care about.

    Maybe some of Russ'...but definitely not MINE.

    At my house, passing out happens. Sometimes I wonder why people get a hotel honestly.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Hoping he acts as the shoulder angel since my shoulder devil (Russ) is such a terrible influence.
