Hi everybody.  Haven't been on here for a while. Glad to see the new forum up and running. I bought my first pair of horns off of Audiogon (see avatar) many years ago, since then I had Ed make me a second pair. Still enjoying them after all these years. I am in southeast Tennessee and enjoy reading all your posts.

I'm here.  It's good to be home.   :D

Not too much new on my side of the earth, I did overpay for a few vintage integrated amps and two receivers. The only thing noteworthy is the mighty Pioneer SX-9000 from 1970.  It's a beast at almost 50 lbs. and has not seen the light in 50 years.  It's as close to NOS as it gets.  It belonged to a NASA guy who purchased it from a Germany PX.  I snagged it straight from Huntsville AL. 

I love it mostly because it reminds me of those guys that served.  And I have to salute the folks that serve and their families. 

Oh... and the on-board reverb is a great way to irritate small mammals and wives.
