Update on Audiogon Member Almarg
Prayers for the family. Very sad news indeed.  I know I can speak for all of us. Al is a true gentleman and I always enjoyed reading his very informative posts. He took the time to give great detailed responses that most of us never would think ab... 
Shunyata Sigma VS Shunyata King Cobra CX
