Just what I needed!  My system was lacking athleticism, attitude and alacrity.

Actually those items aren't too different from some of the things you'll see advertised in Stereophile magazine.

Very funny!   :D  And Mike, absolutely right, in Sterophile AND The Absolute Sound - along with $10,000 cables.  ;D

I don't think these will work. It's the knobs that are more important to the sound.

Mike - I'd recommend the tube version of the HoleyStone to balance the attitude with some warmth.
I believe that Steve Roach used this model on the special-edition of his Early Man album.

I couldn't stop laughing.  I checked out his home page http://www.nathanmarciniak.com/ .  The art work and photography are amazing.  "The Personal Sorrow of Mister Sad Pear" is fantastic.  Thanks!
So, I'm a "Sr Member", huh?  In June it's SENIOR DISCOUNT TIME!!!

Yes he used a prototype made from slate, but he went a step further and had the tube replaced with a quartz crystal to absorb even more negative energy. :D ;D
Take care.
