    I visited with Lance at Forefront Audio today. He seems like a really nice guy. Nice shop. He does installs as well as sales. His web site is: http://forefront-audio.com/
    It is definitely worth the trip. He will take the time to talk with you.

    Glad you enjoyed your visit. Remember when you leave, turn to the right, walk 60 or so paces, and visit Bop Shop Records :)

    I was also able to stop by and visit Lance today. I spent about an hour or so there. He has a nice showroom,with some really great gear. He demoed a pair of Spendor D7 paired with a Plinius amp. Wow!! His hospitality was second to none! I will definitely be visiting him again very soon. If you are in the neighborhood,I strongly suggest you pay Forefront/Lance a visit. You won't be disappointed!

    Just ran into Lance on RSD outside of the Bop Shop. Nice guy, gave him some classical LPs for demo purposes.

    I am one hour down the NYS thruway in Buffalo. I've actually been talking to a dealer in Rochester regarding my TT upgrade. If you are ever in the Buffalo area you should check out the upstairs of Speaker Shop which is about 5 minutes from my house and they have a $200,000 system up there that was running a pair of gorgeous Magicos powered by McIntosh MC2301s. It would be a must see stop if I hosted something in my area.

    Hey, whereabouts (slightly more specifically) are you, 04?

    It sounds like I was right around the corner from you (moved about 45 minutes to an hour north last year).

    Hey Man, im in Amherst NY which is also right near Speaker Shop. It would be fun to have some sort of meetup and I could probably host if needed, love demonstrating the system.

    That would be great. I lived over on Getzville Rd. I’m up in the hinterlands now (near Ransomville/Youngstown/Wilson), but I still work down there.

    There a few of us (one in Hamburg) who have been threatening to get together for too long...

    I'm in Lockport (for a couple of more months, at least) and would attend a get together. I can't host as I am packing up stuff.

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I normally get up to Rochester 4 or 5 times per year but this year I have a work event over Presidents' weekend and I'll be on a long vacation over the summer. Sooooo....I won't be up to Rochester again until probably next Christmas. That being said, I have a Record Archive $50 gift certificate that I will sell for $40 to anyone who wants it. I'm going to put it in BT in a moment, but wanted to make sure to drop a note here.
