Today should be even better, as we are expecting the Zena to be delivered shortly and both Acoustic Sounds and The Tape Project are lending us new compilation tapes. Can’t wait, should be really iexciting, not to mention always a pleasure to see old friends again. . The sound quality last night was superb, another twelve hours of warm up, should really be noticeable, Fuller, more natural sound, with a deep and wide soundstage.

Hi Philip. I visited your room at RMAF at least 4 or 5 times during the show. Given the challenges of a hotel environment with all the ambient noise, I thought your presentation was one of the very best. The dynamic range and pure scale of the setup was just awesome!
