    It's a rare thing when logic and politeness overcomes bureaucracy.

    Congratulations, sir, on your quick thinking! The fact that it is personalized with your name on it is what reduces the "Commercial Value". It cannot be used to make a saleable product for someone else, though, truth be told, these items cost more than the 50 Euro limit.

    I fully understand the feeling that, to you, it is priceless. I feel the same about mine.

    I am very happy that it arrived, in your country, so quickly. Now, you need wait only for the short hop to your residence.

    HooRAY! :banana:

    Thanks for that story, Chris! :thumbsup: So glad you have your precious plaque!

    Today I was talking to a woman about Audio Karma. We were both looking at the records in a thrift store. She and her husband just brought out the turntable to spin some records after many years. Hope they'll join AK! That's my story of the day. :D

    I am sincerely pleased to know that you have been awarded this distinction, Chris. It is a "prize" which you will wear very well, my friend. Perhaps sometime in 2017 we'll meet @ Strasbourg or near climes and raise a glass (or a few) to this honor.

    Let's see it Chris! Of course part of the fun could be the anticipation now that you have it right there.

    Looking forward to seeing it!
