    Possibly!! He is running this TT with two tone arms (not simultaneously for you inquisitive types)

    Which direction? :D

    Congrats on your promotion! You get employee discounts now? I had landscapers here today. They saved me from transporting and spreading 250 plus bags of mulch.

    No discounts but the transition of the oddball pre+power and power amp into two stereo units was reasonable (slightly used caps for free). I did run the light switch in the room! WhoooHooo!

    Shoot. Just seeing this. I would have meet up with you. A lot of Innuos and Aruender. I was very suprised at the lack of Lumin presence.

    This room was a beast with these Audio Research 160's and speakers, very dynamic and the tube gear was fast and powerful. Too bad I can't tell you more. The guy running the room couldn't tell me squat about anything other then one of the amps meters was broken, no shat Dick Tracy my eyes tell that!
