Hello Myles, good to see you hear and read about your system progress.

I'm grateful you reminded me. I just received an email from Bob Attayeh telling me they are receiving fresh tape this afternoon.

Hopefully not too long before I can enjoy this gem.

On the topic of your new Magico, are you using footers under them? Have you experimented with Stillpoints?

I don't know what more you could do. The bass was so improved I could hardly believe it and distortion was reduced to the point it was just "music" rather than speakers.

I would love to hear the system again. Maybe the next California show.

Don't know if you heard my 2013 PFO POY "Smoke and Mirrors" from Yarlung Records but get it if you don't.

After reading I intended to several times but never did. This reminder I went to their website and ordered. Should be good on my Focal Grande EM too.

Speaking of WBF, Steve sure has improved his system. I got to listen after hours when I was doing show coverage at THE Show Newport.
