I will be joining this club having just bought a pair of the PF IX. it has been a year since I first considered a pair of the FAD PFs.
At the moment, a little apprehensive but am defintely looking forward to delivery later this week, and wondering whether their idiosyncratic signature suits me...I am sure it will be an interesting experience
Oh dear, not another PF IX owner!
Here's a thought for you, spkrs01: Why not try instead to source a fake PF IX (if there is one, that is, since there seems to be a fake PF VIII)? For all you know, a fake PF IX may not be the "crap", "piece of s**t" the genuine article seems to be according to some.
On a less serious note, I'll say to you what I said to cooperpwc when he ordered his own pair in July last year: "As Polly said to Manuel in the "Basil the Rat" episode of Fawlty Towers: "Prepare yourself for a shock!" ;)"
