I finally met "the man" today!!!

Post by jjptkd » Fri Jan 21, 2011 12:53 pm

I knew it was just a matter of time since I'm at Rita's Vintage Audio atleast a few times a week but the timing couldn't have been better. I brought my black M-4.0t in for a signature figuring I'd have to leave it there for awhile until he made it in and just a few minutes after I got there Bob Carver showed up. I helped him pack a couple of boxes in from his car and spoke with him for a few minutes about my M-4.0t and his new speakers in the works. That just made my weekend!!! I feel like a teenage groupie!! \:D/ \:D/ :D :D :D :D :D :D My signed M-4.0t will be my new avatar very soon!! 8)
