Old man pointing and wheezing,. I remember when........
I am happy for all of you (us) that have been in this rat race....er, ah Hobby for sometime and remember your own Golden Oldies. Some that I remember fondly:
Original Large Advents
Martin Logan Sequel
Original Monster cables/interconnects
These were some of the beginnings. I had the CJ-ART, many Audio Research units..and other big names, but I expected those to be good. That little Advent Receiver was not expected to be much...but really gave much pleasure and growth to my audio journey (a nod to Steve Perry)
