Description

My goal was simple. Accumulate as much stereo equipment as possible before my wife and I decide to have kids. I've had too many friends warn me that when the babies arrive, so does the money that funds your system. A special thanks to my very understanding wife who puts up with me and my constant false-promises that I'm 'done' getting anything new. And to my father, who sparked by incessant passion at a very young age, and who has loaned me more pieces that I can count, much to his dismay.

I've been busy, lots of changes has taken the system to new levels.

A friend of mine in Portland had just gotten a pair of the same speakers prior to my visit. I think he's finally gotten the speakers he was intended to have. He mentioned his son, whom he says is a bigger fanatic than he is, and that he has Brinkman turntables.

If you are indeed the son of this individual, whose name is George, we have become good friends, along with Michael, and they have visited me on Whidbey Island several times.

If this is the case, it points out that it is a small world. Maybe I'll have the good fortune of meeting with you, on my next visit.

Enjoy your Ascendos, they are excellent, as is the rest of your system.

Best regards,
Dan
