Leif,

As you know from our many discussions that yours and Damon's work is what generated the idea for this tag. Sitting amongst other listeners at Axpona and Capitol Audio Fest, we kept hearing repeatedly, almost like a mantra, the same thing from seasoned VSA owners and newbies like myself, that the show systems were producing sound that almost universally made listeners comment that it sounded like it was real. It was also uncanny to see how many people reflexly got up from their chairs and started dancing in response.

I marveled from the time I spent in your rooms and listened to other parts of the system settle in and the speakers put forth any changes, good and bad in the signal path, only to repeatedly watch you adjust your networks to shift the sound to be the most realistic I had heard. Perhaps even more impressive was the string of highly opinionated well known people in this space, like reviewers, make the same comments repeatedly because they were so excited by the experience.

In writing this post, I now know exactly why I have purchased Ultra 9's, VAC electronics and a full loom of MB products. I have always wanted a system that sounds indistinguishable from reality and you and Damon have made that possible. See you at Axpona 2019.

I just found out that they will not be having the dance competition this year. So we won't be dealing with the power draw like last year..
I look forward to seeing you and other WBF members soon.

It isn’t over yet, but a big thanks to Leif, Damon and Greg for what has been a mind-blowing evening of great music on a phenomenal system. I heard quite a few familiar pieces as I never heard them before. Bravo!

Greg Weaver's Saturday night music standup event was nothing short of amazing. I did not realize that I sat in place for 6 hours listening to many records I know quite well, so I thought, and left at 3 AM absolutely elated. Great music, amazing sound, great standup. Bravo Greg, VSA, VAC, MB, and TAC.
