    Dan was let go like a week or two ago and has already landed himself a new job at another company. He hasn't given any details yet though.

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.

    I meant that he gave detail on the company he is working for. Not very much on what he will be doing or who he is actually working for.

    Thanks for the support man, It means a lot.

    So I guess you know now I have been out of Tweeter for a few weeks now and landed a new position for a new company. Now that I have officially started and I'm gonna stick around for awhile, I can fill you in on it.

    I work for www.audiolab.com. This is my new company. They are a smaller custom shop that carries really nice stuff. As I listed on that other thread, I'm doing exactly the same line of work as I did for Tweeter but on a smaller scale. Tomorrow I'm spec'ing out a high end dedicated home theater room which I'm excited to do. What I really like better about this company is that they really care about how the system sounds. That means so much to me. At Tweeter they did 2 just on a different level. It's nice to meet with the entire company in one room as well. I went to my first meeting and it was nice to have everyone inputing and trying to make the company better. That I really like.

    I will keep you guys up to speed on how things are going. I really am thankful that you guys took the time to care, that says a lot about the quality of people in here,

    We got some really good things coming up. We are going to have another sale. We have tons of good gear and wire. Kimber, Cardas, Ixos ,Tributaries ,so lots to play with. I see new and exciting wire shootouts.

    Today I sat and listened to the Thiels on our website with Krell, running a turn table. Very very organic and nice. The head room of Krell is something to experience at least once in your life.

    I'll let everyone know when the sales begin. I'll do my best to get you guys good deals. Allday,
