    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.

    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.
