Bro, I don't print money!

Even if I do, the weather's raining almost every day over here, so the printed bills difficult to dry ahh!

My birthday is coming, a gift from you perhaps?

Seriously, it will be like buying another Pre-Amp and not using the 808.3 & 800v4 (where itself, had the same Pre amp facilities, sans ID40 Card, and now ditching the 808.3 ID40, to have the newer ID41). The 818 is not cheap and the monies can be used to buy the REAR speakers when the time cometh.

If not for the love of Meridian and its great performance, I would have been so angry with the dealer that I will just sell off the entire setup and do another one for 2012!



See you on Friday 22nd AFTER 8 pm at The Prince Hotel (with Philips?). Please confirm, if not, I'll go off to do my usual CD/BR hunting at HK records which is in the same building.

Cheers!
