Alright Don....spill the beans, man!

You know who you are.

Now that you have had the Infinities in your house for some time, how would you describe them? How about a review?

Do tell, man. [-o<

That's what I'm talking about. Makes me wonder whether he's not happy with them.......given the silence.

Don hasn't posted in a while but I can assure you the Whispers sound great from our conversations. I believe he and Terri are catching up on some time together.

Well, Ed. I haven't heard them yet, which is why I am inquiring about a review. Go sit in the corner and count the number of bugs on the floor. I mean, do something useful for a change. ](*,)

As in lately (do something useful) or as in like in the past helping Dave "rescue" his tube amp "beasts" from San Pedro seller so you all could enjoy them at the last two fests? Sorry, Tom,I'll see what I can do because I know: what have you done for me LATELY? :lol: :lol:

But how come Kingman can causually "dismiss" MY extensive review of the 300x2 amp vs Carver with his one liner (as he did) and no one tells HIM to go do something useful? Just saying/asking.... :lol: And I was asked for the review as well and was just trying to do something useful/helpful for others contemplating a move to Sunfire.
