    I think that's a fair assessment. I sell BMWs. The scary thing to me is I get credit applications from retired folk whose income is more money a month than I'm making still working 12-months!

    As my Dad used to say when I'd ask why I couldn't have things the preppy kids at my prep-school had: "You picked the wrong womb!"

    Hey Phil,

    Did you ever watch Billions the series on Stan?

    Kind of says it all on sketchy new get rich quick wealth versus the DA’s office looking for the white collar crooks. I think l saw a descent turntable on one of the sets.

    I could help them spend it all. On Hifi stuff anyway and cars. Your right, priorities are the thing.
    I did see in that clip I posted above that the CBS reporter was quite floored by what he heard. Even the ladies were impressed it seemed. Or just being TV phoney. But I felt the male reporter was genuinely taken back but what he heard.
    I've always felt that was the key to any sale. Once you hear something that good, some folks can never forget. They are hopefully a future sale to somebody. That itch just may catch.
    I mean if you love music who could say no to better music?
    It's like we say in the car world, speeds just a matter of money, how fast do you wanna go?

    That's funny as I just watched that guys video yesterday with that system in it. I like how he has done the plywood in that grey tone. You can still see the plywood grain . I think it looks cool. Never seen that finish before.
    Too me that system looks beautiful. Not TOO big at all. It's art to me. I'd like to hear that 30 inch. At least I think it's a 30inch. Or a 21inch.

    yeah, I love the finish on those cabinets. Definitely a more elegant look than your standard matte.

    I'm heard the super sub in another one of Devon's systems and, believe it or not, it's subtle. When it's on, it simply fills out the sound. It's not in your face like one might think. I heard his home system with and without the Fostex sub enabled and when it's off, you can tell something is missing but it's not a dramatic difference.

    Although the 4305P is being pitched by the Harman Luxury Group l think this interview is a good product profile on answering the needs of the next generation.

    https://www.harmanluxuryaudionews.co...udio-monitors/
    $2,200

    It has a built in streamer. https://www.whathifi.com/au/news/jbl...reaming-skills

    I think the connectivity on the rear gives this model universal appeal.

    I am not sure about the appearance of the design fitting in with mums beautiful living room.

    If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.

    Colleagues,

    Germaine to subject matter at hand: The N.W. Audio Show event is scheduled to take place at the Double Tree Inn across the highway from the Sea-Tac airport the 29th through the 31st of this month. I will take my self and beloved spouse from the bucolic wastes of Hood Canal and witness this sight and give a report.

    God willing and the creek don't rise, and my spouse feels up to it.
