He was thumping away with his stereo. He has some Sony reciever and speakers for an HT setup and was blasting music as I arrived home.
I heard another neighbor bitching about the stereo on the phone to a friend while I was outside throwing salt on the walkway to melt the ice. Just as I was opening the door to go back in, the neighbor comes out. I looked at him and told him that the neighbors were bitching about the music and not to be surprised when he gets a call from the office. Just as I said that, I hear the bass line from Paul Oakenfold's "Starry Eyed Surprise" come out of the second bedroom where the SDA shrine is.
The wife turned on the SDA rig and didn't realize how high the volume was so it played kinda loud. Boy did it sound sweet! It was shaking the planks on the landing outside the apatment. The neighbor's jaw dropped and he started walking over to get a peek and asking me "What the hell was that?!"
I knew I wasn't going to be able to keep him away so I flexed the Adcom GFA-535MKII a bit (still haven't managed to get that thing hot yet!) and pushed the SDA's pretty hard. I backed off when they vibrated hairspray cans off of the dresser in the other bedroom. I figured I didn't need my neighbors getting pissed at me too.
Anyway, he's super interested now and was asking about all my gear. Probably because he's never heard of dbx, BSR, NAD, Adcom, Behringer or Carver. He said he listened to Polks before but never thought much of them. Then again he never heard the SDA effect. I think it's sucked in another minion to do it's bidding. He's probably scouring the 'bay for a set now.
