    The amp is new with only about 12 hours thus far so will give it a few days and will share my impressions relative to the Rogue. I was told to not even listen to the Pass for 5 days but that clearly didn’t and isn’t going to happen!

    Those are the best smelling diffusers. :p
    At least until they turn brown.

    Made a new Rack to combine two into one and moved gear to the side of the room. This cleaned up the center image more than I expected B)

    I had a cleaning crew once that would do those fancy stripes and then at the front door entrance, they would switch it up and make a "floor mat" in the carpet with a carpet rake.

    It's kinda hard to describe without actually seeing it but they would take a carpet rake and make a 2'x5' rectangle with all of the carpet fibers pushed one way. Then they would spell out the word, "Welcome" in the carpet with the fibers, neatly written within that rectangle going the other way. It was actually pretty cool and for some reason, it made it look more inviting/clean.

    And that concludes today's lesson on Tom's useless trivial p o o p. Stay tuned for more completely useless trivial p o o p in upcoming posts soon.

    The welcome mat idea is cool!

    Only crazy one I have seen is flower shapes

    Beautiful rig Mike! Totally agree about keeping racks out of the center!
