'Tis the season for thanks and for giving. I just wanted to take a moment to give some quick thanks to a several in our space that I have appreciated.

Dealers (yes dealers, whose survival is paramount to the success of this hobby); Here are a few I've bought from this past year.

Alex Siufy at Alma Music in San Diego
Anthony Perrotta of Perrotta Consulting, CT.
Chris Venhaus of VH Audio in Wisconsin
Alex and Anthony are two of the best brick and mortar stores for gear as they are generous with their time and never make me feel that I am imposing. Who says you can't have price and service? With these guys, you can. Chris is my go to guy for parts. I've bought every kind of metal connector, plug and assorted minor items from Chris. He doesn't advertise and depends on word of mouth but his selection and service are outstanding.

WBF A quick shout out to the many contributors who continually educate me and entertain me. Specific kudos to Steve and Ron for providing the platform and for putting up with us when we're bad!

Who do you want to give a "shout out" to?

I totally agree about Alex and Fabio at Alma. Every time I have been there has been a musical experience. They have a beautiful store, represent top notch brands and as you say, always have time to discuss their products. Plus they have an uncanny ability in setting up speakers. The last time I was there I heard the Alexia ll set up outside the parameters given by Wilson Audio yet the sound in that large room was one of the best I've ever heard

Thanks, guys!
Both of you need to return, as we've completed phase 2 of our room, and it's sounding quite a bit better than it did when both of you visited!

How you had the speakers set up was remarkable

Iirc the ratio was 0.88 rather than 1.0-1.5
