CarverFest: $2000.... Fried Lightstar: $600....

CarverFest: $2000.... Fried Lightstar: $600....
Bob's Tweeks: PRICELESS !!!!!!

Well, it's cost me around $2600, and in the end, it's well worth every penny.

It's taken me about 3 months to get around to hooking my system back up after CarverFest.
I am impressed with the what Bob did in tuning my speakers. It's WAY different, but it's not as big of a shock as it was, while he was doing it. It's been so long, I am not used to anything any more, and it seems very easy to listen to the EQ'd sound now.

BIG THANKS BOB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While you're thinking CarverFest and Bob — can you think Polo shirts? 8)

Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Not really snarffydoggy, but then I don't expect to receive the 4 polo shirts I paid for back in August to show up before I die either.
