Joey you were missed. A couple of your "go to" songs were played as everyone has heard them at every meet.

It was a great night of listening and sharing of thoughts on our hobby.

Hope to get some pics up soon of my system.

Ed

Ed's system was a hit! I love those Focals; they are truly magical and the electronics seem to bring out the best in them. Some of the best digital I've ever heard through that Aurender/Rossini combination.
