    Steve.......I enjoyed reading your article about Julie's new sound system. Your contribution to her satisfaction with her purchase was exemplary. The final price point was remarkably low, and her excitement with the system was high. The whole event made me smile. Thanks for sharing.

          Excellent piece Steve and really needed. It’s good to show people that they don’t have to spend a fortune for musical nirvana and audio bliss. Not to mention that’s what dealers exist for too. Rather than shopping for the cheapest thing on Amazon.

          Sounds like she could use a Spin Clean. 😉

            We've told her if she cooks dinner, we'll bring our Spin Clean and Record Doctor and clean any new additions to her collection.

            Steve another well done article and promoting this hobby doesn't need to be about esoteric super expensive gear.

              Thank you Steve. It proves a person can be extremely happy with a audio system that doesn't cost more than a lower end new car..
