Thanks so much for hosting this event. Also, please thank Kathy for being such a wonderful wife and pitching in to help you with the cooking and setup
It was a wonderful opportunity to demo so many great toys! The Dodd pre's and mono amps were beauties and sounded great. Danny did a bang up job in 2 weeks to get those speakers ready for this GTG...what a great sounding pair they were (even in the challenged environment). How'd they sound in the upstairs room, btw?
John's KCI cables were kick-ass, as well as some of Danny's cables. I guess my cables (interconnects and speaker) were the 'weak links' in the downstairs system, as after they were replaced by the Silkworm Plus and Danny's speaker cables (sorry, I forgot the name), I noticed a pretty nice change in sound.
The Crescendos sounded very nice (from where I was sitting) after they were warmed up. I didn't get a chance to sit in one the middle seats (as I was so busy running around), so I couldn't provide very good feedback.
I was going to post some pictures, but we (Art and I) know why I can't
I was hoping that if I leave enough things at Art's house, that he'd let me move into the CLS9 room
