I don't know how many listen to hi end out here. I haven't run into anybody. One guy I work with, who is in IT, well heads IT for the hospital, did the first sound ever heard on a computer. Gates was young then and heard about it and wanted to know how he did it. Our IT guy, Bill, also knew Steve Jobs (not too many kind words). Bill does know high end and was one of the wonder kids that built his first tube radio at . . . age 5. Yes, and talking with him I can tell he has the smarts. He was raised in the bush but lived part of his life down in California doing the computers in their infancy. He is about the only one that can identify with my joy of good sound and what it all really means. I am alone out here in the audio desert. :^) I was kidding with you though. I do have a Hugo on order but none have touched the ground within my reach. I do have some awfully fine sound/music to listen to. And feel fortunate to have that and the fine online dialogue with all you fine guys.
