    Next year, I may show up a day or two ahead of time and explore what Charleston has to offer (which is a lot). We were there at a rather fancy wedding the very day the country shut down for the "14 days" and haven't been back (except for Polkfest 2020) since then. Shame, considering we have 2 timeshare locations down there. It really is a cool town and I need to get another SC mug from "The Market".
    Well, that and I'd like to eat at Breck's.

    R200s arrived today. They are currently sitting on another pair of speakers because I don't have speaker stands. They sound great. Looking forward to hearing them settled down over the next few days.

    ...and Blast from PolkFest past......2009, here are the Carver Amazing Plats (the ones I have now) about an hour before I absolutely SCORCHED a ribbon.

    It was glorious, I assure you, right up until it caught fire.

    I didn't get Trey's speakers... the shipping was way too much.

    One of them was a temperamental SOB. I believe Ted moved them on some years back.
