    Yeah, a certain guy on this forum who's name rhymes with the word "Drey" stated privately that he was done.

    A friend of ours and I gave him much grief and he stated that...."no, I mean I am done, DONE!"

    LOL

    I haven't heard the latest rendition of his rig yet but I have to laugh when someone says that in this hobby.

    I'm done with my rig for a stint. Not to say I'm done.....it's just on hold while I concentrate on the new room. That's definitely the one thing that's holding me back right now.

    I think as long as it is a hobby you can never technically be done

    The takeaway for me was that McIntosh gear makes your music sound like band practice. That's good information.

    I think there should be a “say no the audio gear purchases anonymous” club somewhere!!

    And make it National!
