Bob is better -
He worked hard on his passion and he is better.

Some of us have worked hard on our passion, or many passions.

Just like any endeavor (most can understand pro sports) Bob had a gift and trained hard because he loved it.

Bob is better !!!

As before in his younger years, he is now a top salesman on the web.. Read his ebay stuff and you can see he already has a cult built up there.

The guy builds excellent stuff and knows how to put that fact on line.

Any joining in here or lack of it is not due to his ability to work the web.

Good.... I'll give him your number to call at 3:00am, and you can explain how to send a picture in an email ((10 times))

Speak about what you know. I do.

I've read references to "live/performance level" playback by several posters here, and just wondered if at CFest anyone opened up their rig to the aforementioned levels. I wasn't imagining that it resembled a parking lot "blast off" !! :lol:
why yes. the throttle was turned up a few times at cabin12 with a couple of jl13w7 and a pt2400 to assist in moving you around with some al-v's through a lightstar reference matching pre and amp via ray. and yes, there even was a audio controll 3055 meter there as well.

Good fun --

Most agree, especially retailers, that loud is better.

I have the junk to play loud, but believe the truth in a good system is the ability to play low with authority.
