Thank you very much. When the D’Agostinos were introduced some years ago I was a little ambivalent about their looks, but they quickly grew on me. I like the steam-punk meets Captain Nemo vibe very much and frankly, I was getting kind of tired of blue LEDs on everything!

Best,

Steve Z

Hey Steve, congrats on the Dag setup, it’s wonderful sounding equipment to be sure, it’s amazing how lifelike and vivid music sounds through the combination. You’ll enjoy it for years to come! It still amazes me how many audiophiles are in the Pacific Northwest

Just realized the invitational event is the 6th, not the 7th. Think I’ll be able to make it.
