    Wow, how cool is this! I've been tuned out for a bit, buried in construction at the house I bought a year ago. Glad to see another group buy going strong! And glad I'm not running it!!! The last one I did went off the rails.....
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Fun times - can we rename this thread "Group Buys Gone Wild!" The action starts on page 8 towards the bottom. If anyone wants to see a case study in how to get yourself banned from Club Polk, here it is:

    Wow, just wow. That was an interesting read. This GB was a sunday walk in the park compared to the drama in that one.

    Though, sadly there is apparently a current issue with a long term member here that was also somewhat involved in that discussion. But on the positive side that member has a strong support group of 'Polkies' here on the forum. I'm not involved in it but am always glad to see 'common sense' solidarity among the many members here.

    Hey Neil good to hear from you. Hope all is well. Yes this one has been smooth so far we had some great folks in this one and some repeats from yours as well.

    It’s good to see y’all. The past year has been a wild ride. We bought the house and then decided to re-do the entire thing! So 3 bathrooms, a kitchen, 4 bedrooms, a living room and dining room later, I’m here to say hi! Haven’t been very focused on audio with all that’s been going on. But the interior work is just about done, now is the fun part - the pool and the landscaping!

    Just for kicks I went back through that mess of a group buy thread. It gets interesting again on page 12 when he pipes back in. I forgot about the whole part where he called AL directly and tried to muscle his way into the group but through back channels. And then he accused me of only being in it for the air miles. All $52 worth. And that led me to a Githens donation as a result. Definitely an entertaining read!

    I miss George Grand. In fact, that’s worthy of a new thread....

    Good to see you Neil. Yeah, that was head-shaking stuff handled superbly by you. The guy's immodest self-destruction is pretty hilarious in retrospect (also illustrates the shift in admin since that time IMO).

    I hope you'll return often. You are responsible for several positive steps in my audio journey.

    Wow Neil I had forgotten how much of a jerk that guy was and yes indeed you did handle it superbly. Thanks to that group purchase that you handled so well for us I've been able to use and enjoy monoblocks on my 1.2s ever since. It's been a few years since that group buy but my ears still thank you.

    Yeah, that was one for the books! Glad the Dread is still keeping a smile on your face!
