    Talking A great day for lightman

    Just got back from Georgia to pick up a set of SDA-1A's. Four!!
    Sat and listened for while to his new HT rig. Martin Logans and "Viennas"(?).
    Denon AVR and BIGASS Sony LCD. Tasty.
    Got to jawin' about music, gear etc. And before to long he goes into his storage room and comes out with the rest of his old gear. On top of the speaks and Denon power amps. (POA-1500's) He has the tuner, TT and dual cassette deck! Says to me "Here, take these." "How much?" I inquired. "Nothing, I know they will be in a good home."
    BONUS!!! After yappin' a little more and loading the van, he treated me to a glass of the sweetest single malt and wished me many good years of enjoyment. I replied "It all starts today."
    BTW, HI Joe, One SMALL glass.
    Here's the list:
    4 SDA-1A's
    2 Denon POA-1500 power amps
    1 PRA-1000 pre amp
    1 TU-767 tuner
    1 DP-45F TT w/ Signet diamond cart
    1 DRW-580 dual cassette deck
    Total duckets dropped: $1050 and $80 for gas.:D:D:D

    But there's more!!!
    My bestest buddy I've known since we were 10 yrs old lives about 30 miles from the other guy. Hadn't seen him and family in over a year. Dropped by to say Hi. Showed him the loot I plundered. He says "Hey, I still have my brothers stuff in the house." His brother (mine too, more or less) passed away in 2000 from cancer. He pulled it all out, knocked the dust off, and says "Here, take it. It needs to go to a good place, Russ. Chris wouldn't want it any other way." (cue Twilight Zone music).
    Almost shedding a tear, I thanked him.
    Goodbye's were exchanged,hugs from his kids and wife (a really long hug for the wife, She's HOT!) and I set out for Mooresville.
    Along the way home, I realized there are few people who will stick with you no matter what. I set out this morning to to buy some toys, that's all, and came home with more than I ever bargained for. Made a new friend, saw an old friend of 30 years and now have a part of a friend departed.
    It was a great day for lightman.

    The 'roidals in those things are HUGE!
    Gotta wait till daylight and the neighbors are at church to put them to the test. Soon as I figure out how to turn on the camera, I'll put some pics up.
