Mdrummer01: Geez...I said I look forward to hearing from him (meaning AnThuan), not from Miss Manners or the rest of Audiogon.
It should be obvious that when you choose to post something publicly, it is for all to read and discuss. If you only wanted to hear from AnThuan, well that's what email is for.
I don't know what the problem is, but at this point each of you, instead of sending an email, is asking the other to send the first email. I hope one of you will blink. Based on history I suggest it should be you. In other words, he made a public offer, and it was your turn to respond by email. Still is.
However, after you had your listening session(s), please post a review here. That would be appropriate and most welcome!
