    Oh crap! I forgot all about this! My life has been a disaster this whole week with the heat, automotive breakdowns, the death of my brother in law yesterday. I'm just going to have to ask for a raincheck. Was hoping to meet some Polkies there.

    I think that I was one of his first visitors. He’s got the room pretty dialed in and it’s one of the best sounding, IMHO.

    That box they are referring to if I am not mistaken is from Caprice Audio. The person behind it is a very nice person. We hung out at Axpona. I might be wrong on the box but, I really think it is one from Caprice.

    I have heard those speakers a few times and every time I have heard them, they have sounded wonderful.

    Hey, my speakers!

    Nevermind the fact that everything upstream from them is, let's just say, a bit more expensive than my gear :#:D
