Yes Pete,

Another great room !!!  I Just kept returning to this room. (Maybe 5 times today)
Just like LAAS, I was impressed by only a handful of rooms.  And again, my favorite was the ( Volti-BP-TWL ) room !!

Every time I walked into the room, no matter what music gender was playing , it sounded smooth and easy to listen to . ( Blues,Jazz,Classical,Steely Dan,Reggae,Ect.)  Every time!  Every gender!   
I can't get over this systems ability to play stringed instruments , especially guitars "Willie Nelson & BB King OMG!!!"   Most of the other rooms only sounded good with certain types of music , they did not empress me unless the " right song " for that system was playing.

I played a Reggae CD- (" Stick Figure "- Burial Ground ) - on a $150,000 system at LAAS using Focal speakers and it sounded awful.   But I played that same CD in your room today and , ..."WOW"... :singing:

I left my CD in your room 5216 for all to "HAVE FUN" with this weekend. Try the Reggae , it's really fun on this system !!!

Thank you guys ( Greg, Pete ,Gary ) for Showing your system.. I loved it..BURT from Fresno ca.

A little humor (& truth) from Greg Roberts from Volti Audio...

"The attendees at the California Audio Show this year voted on what they thought was the best sounding system at the show.  After all the votes were tallied, the Volti Audio/BorderPatrol/Triode Wire Labs system came in second place!  But what’s more intriguing, is that if you purchased the second place system at CAS 2017 instead of purchasing the first place system, you would save yourself $970,000.00!"
