    Perhaps we should all be like Russ, and change our avatars to his image? Worked wonders when we did it with Jesse way back when....
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, 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'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'.

    That might be the same color as my '73 Firebird was, Navajo Orange.

    The GTO was Carousel Orange, IIRC.

    Ah **** son....

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Russ & Judy were here last night and all the young ladies in one of the best burger joints in St. Louis were quite smitten! (well, that's what he told us after we left).

    Seriously though @lightman1 , thanks again for dinner Russ! You totally rock broham!

    Just got back to Des Moines....
    Good times Victor!
    Chicks dig me!

    But that was his noggin. It'd be redundant.
