..just thought I'd tell all of an interesting experience. I was just at the coffee roaster's store in Cave Creek, Az., and right across the parking lot I see a sign... Dan D'Agostino which piqued my interest. I went into the group of 2 or 3 small stores and there was the big guy who took me around for a look at his "factory". There were maybe 5 or 6 young (eveybody's young to me) guys soldering, banging, etc....putting together the Millenium amps, preamps, etc. There was a chalk board that told of the orders....all over the world...Sweden, Germany, Japan, etc. He told me all his parts are made locally, and combined to become expensive boxes right there. ...very interesting.
