    Am I the only one who thinks those guys are too old to really enjoy all of that gear? Just can't imagine them maxin' the volume and rockin' out on those systems. Classical is OK, but sometimes ya gotta rock, dude!

    Classical don't rock?? Au contraire mon frere.

    Pick up Mahler's 5th and tell me THAT doesn't rock.

    Then, pick up the 1812 Overature on Telarc....

    I'm askeered of that Telarc "1812 Overture". Don't forget Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyrie"...

    Oh yeah, I can see you grooving along with your air guitar and bobbing your head like Van Halen when Mahler's playin'.

    Your never too old to rock!

    They do what they do for the same reason that we do/would if we had the means. Because you don't hear....you feel.

    Were those a pair of Usher D2 horns in there?

    Great vid....thanks for posting.

    I've linked Jean-Yves Kerbrat's system before on here, but it has been quite awhile ago. His system is the pinnacle the ACA boys...........although the whole club has a large number of nice systems with just a few $$$ invested.

    Just watched the film myself (I posted the link when I was at work).

    Wow!! Lots of horn-loaded speakers....JBL (the black refrigerator-sized ones), Tannoy, etc.

    Hi all,

    Thanks very much for your comments about the documentary. :p

    Here is another link @ http://aca.gr/event06-3.htm to a page that explains everything about the film's genesis, links to the systems presented in the film etc, etc...

    Hello skaloumbakas. Are you one in the first row of thumbnails? Who made your turntable? What is some of the other equipment in your system? Amplifiers? Speakers?

    Hello fellow freak!!!:p I enjoyed the whole film. It was well produced. Some of you fellows are about the same age as several of us at Club Polk and we understand a little more of where you are coming from....that is saying that the newer, whether younger or just starting out, are more into home theatre than 2-channel. Let's just say that there are several, here, that are on that same wavelength as you guys.:)

    Have a Merry Christmas, Hanukah, or holidays,
