    Default Just so everyone knows.....

    I'm back boys... Yes mantis is back. Hi gear and swinging. I have taken a shot in the pride, in the gut and every where else you can take a shot but I survived and I'm back. No not the forum, I didn't leave and come back again, that was many years ago, but All I'm saying for right now is....
    I'M BACK!!!!

    .......so does this mean that you have some good news to share with us on the old job front buddy?

    Tell me some good news man......... *praying*
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    I am concerned. He is posting, but not making any sense. I think CL35 may have taken over his brain

    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    So the good news is I hooked up with a custom Inter-grader who I have known for many years. I have stopped in his shop many times as he carries really nice stuff. I think Losing my job helped me move on. I'll be doing what I love but at a different level. I feel this company does it better. After my 3rd Interview, I felt really good about the company, where they are going and how they conduct business. Big thing for me is they are apart of Cedia, so finally I can get back to Cedia and continue that training. I have not been to Cedia since 2002. Tweeter did mini CES training which was good but I always felt it was a step below Cedia.

    I miss a lot of people I used to work with. Many good folks there. But these are new exciting times and I'm looking forward to moving forward.

    Alittle word on the cool gear we carry is Krell , B&K , NAD , Rega,Carver , Classe , Tributaries , Kimber Kable , Liberity , Focal , Def Tech(cool I get to stay in the family so to speak LOL) Paradigm , Anthony Gallo which is really cool they got some new cool stuff I'm digging , Magnpan , Thiel , Denon , Pioneeer Elite , Sharp , Panasonic , Elan , Lutron Home works , and a few more I don't remember off the top of my head.

    Whats cool about this company is they care about good audio which is what I care about. They do turntables and 2 channel. They still get crazy Audiophile cats which will feel like Soundex. I'm so excited about that.

    What's really cool is I get to hang out with Bob Carver in feb of next year. He is coming in to do a Seminar. I met him years ago that crazy mofo.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, I'm very happy to land on my feet. I'll tell you guys more about it after I start.
