    Usually he has funny dog pictures. But I guess tonight he’s the resident a$$ hole. Must be from Ontario. It’s hot and I can’t sleep! Waaaa!

    Hey thanks a lot, glad you're enjoying the reviews. The show was a lot of fun, I just wish I would've gone for the full day on Friday!

    Are you or have you been affected by all the fires?
    It's been hot here in Ottawa. Usually in the mid to high 40 with humidity. Our lawns are just coming back from being brown. Just on the tail of our summer vacation and kids go back to school in 3 weeks. Just received their uniforms getting them hemmed. Congrats on the new truck.

    East Coast, here.
    I feel I almost checked out last month. Lost 14 lbs. during a crazy weird illness of all kinds of sorts. But I made it and getting stronger every day.

    Other than that, I bought a great BEAUTIFUL TT ( Pro-Ject Perspex)and a couple sets of BEAUTFUL speakers ( Triton Ones and Def. Tech. BP30's )off of Craigs List this summer! B)

    All three at what I consider GREAT prices!! ;)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I’ve hadn’t a great summer, for Audio and otherwise. Got a TT, a few receivers, SDA’s, and have been enjoying every minute of it. Also had family from Norway here.
    I’m also going to go to Glacier National Park for the week, leaving on Monday. It’s gonna be a lot of fun!

    Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
    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'.

    I haven’t been affected personally by the fires, but being on the edge of the Rocky Mountains, our city has been blanketed in a thick layer of smoke. It was 38degress here yesterday, got dry and Smokey!

    Audio has been on hold for me this summer, but I did his pick up a rogue audio stereo 100! And I’m absolutely stoked how this baby sounds! I hate to say at almost half the price of my bryston 4B3, it kills the Bryston in sound quality! Wow!

    Glad to hear parts of Alberta are just as warm as parts of Ontario. Makes for a great summer.

    Summer is flying by. Working too much, haven't been to the range at all. Built a Pergola over the patio was the most notable thing.

    Right on! I believe Steve-o got arrested once for climbing the head! Banff is gorgeous, we camp on crown land (public use land) just east of banff. I’m out there almost every weekend.

    Here’s a pic of Margaret lake, it’s a very sketchy logging road to get here.
