To Jeff Fritz,
I will try and keep this brief, but I just had to write my first message to a SoundStage! audio reviewer: as someone who has been at this hobby a long time (my first good stereo with LS3/5As was about 35 years ago); as someone who once had a 2500-square-foot one-bedroom condo and an active system that featured around 40 vacuum tubes; and as someone who now has small children (2, 3, and 8) at a point later in my life than most do.
Yours is the most timely, most insightful, and I must say inspiring article having to do with audio I have ever read. I look forward to the privilege of reading the chronicle of your journey to your new system. Kudos, bravo, and any other words that are appropriate.
