Hello, Jack. That's you on that other forum, isn't it?
The summer trip to the East Coast came to a screeching halt 25 days ago when my 87 year-old mother fell ill with urinary tract infection (UTI), aspiration pneumonia, and heart failure. Yeah, all three at the same time.
She very nearly died in the hospital. Now she's out of rehab and back in her assisted living facility. I do not dare dash off for four months. We're about to rent a modest apartment not far from her where we'll stay for about 2 months. Perhaps, if she's fine, we'll sneak off for a short trip somewhere. [Oh, yeah. My father passed in January, so Mom would be mostly alone if I disappear.] I still get to have my life, but I must
make sure Mom is well cared for.
As for the Liquid speakers...they need room to breathe and my room in Taiwan does not have the space for that. I've crossed a whole bunch of speakers off my list in the last year because of room limitations. If I were sure I were going to stay in Oregon, my choice of speakers would be huge. In Taiwan, I either go with big name brand speakers like B&W, Focal, Dynaudio, etc. or I opt for specialty/boutique manufacturers on AC and elsewhere. I don't even consider B&W, Focal, etc. in the States. [Am I spoiled?]
tempted to get one of Klaus' best ass kickin' amps to hear for myself what all the excitement is about.

Well, refer to what I posted above and you'll understand I'm a bit travel limited for a while. I suspect I'll have made a decision on speakers and amp by the time I have enough confidence to leave my mother's side. However, I do thank you for the offer.
