    Sure, if you want the ugliest avatar award!

    You girls keep it up and folks are gonna think I'm the northern end of a south bound mule.

    Tis all good; I was really surprized Ray could get a shot off that quick at what 3:30am Sunday morning after so many brews :D

    Nice. I'm a little in shock to see tubes in Retro's room though.
    Sorry I missed it this year.

    Tubes would not be able to power most of my speakers, that's why we brought the Tannoys too. :smoke:

    I wish you could have made it too Adam, as usual, it was a blast!

    No rip intended, Just have never used a speaker that size as main or stereo speakers. Would love to hear a pair. Retro, No disrespect of course.

    I didn't read it that way and I know Retro didn't either. Just made me laugh at the time.

    If you ever get a chance to hear these sometime, you should. They are pretty dang nice! They would make for some killer surrounds also now that I think about it :yes:

    By the way, there are lots o' tube amps that would power your speakers. Next time you are in town, I will take you over to HiFi Sound and listen to the VTL Siegfried ( I believe they have them)

    About 800w of 6550 pleasure. Bring a couple credit cards though. You will need several if you decide to take em home. :smoke:

    Oops, I should have clarified that the tubes in "that" room wouldn't have powered my Thiels very well.
    Yeah, I saw the new McIntosh 375 watt tube mono blocks last year, they would power my Thiels just fine too, but you're right, at $22,000.00, I wouldn't be able to afford them.
