    Ditto!

    We started talking turntables and someone started moaning...lol

    Don't forget Aaron, ALL212!

    Skip's room sounded really good, again. He deserves an award.

    ZMF Headphones, in or near Chicago. Aaron knows. These sounded and looked really good. Various woods used. Not real heavy. Can be pricey. Pic's snagged.

    I start my day at skips room ( sounding better the last year) and then start from there.

    For me so far, the 2 surprise speakers was 1 klipsch forte. I might have been the music they were playing but they sound nothing like the forte i remember from the 70's and 80's @4k price.

    In Wally's room the LSA . Both the bookies and floor standing sounded darn good especially for the price. Audio purists, he is running dsp on the bookies but he will turn it off if you ask him to. The towers he said a axpona weekend only for 3k a set. They sounded great for the $ and he wasn't using a high dollar amplifier either.

    The big rooms down stairs, make sure folks hit the eureka and epiphany rooms. Hopefully see all in a bit. Btw we changed dinner plans. Cancelled Bahama Breeze and were gonna hit giordanos instead

    I’ll be around until noon, early pm.

    Probably wander back up to Skips room again as it does warrant some more listening.

    Stopping at Odyssey on the way up to Skips.
