    Anyway I gave up for good.For those who still on hifi,just listen and enjoy the music.

    Plinius-yeah,maybe one day meet up for coffee/makan and chit-chat.
    Sometimes I miss the old story and good to have someone who has the same hobby and refresh our minds of something we've been through...good and bad.And maybe can bring our camera and shoot-shoot whatever we can.Don't care about camera lah...hi end or lo end just shoot only.

    I can see people with similar hobby comin'.
    Keep on coming...

    See ya.

    You can guess I got my gear from Norman Audio too. Damnit, they made the place so comfortable that one could not help but plop one's ass on their couch and blast their amps away. Thank goodness they don't make camera stores like that else I'd have everything Canon ever made.

    Yes, that too.

    Think recently they've re-arranged the setup, more stuff to play (and listen).

    The new Dynaudio speakers is good. Especially after the Contour 1.3SE, the new Contour series and the Confidence series, top notch.
