A few years ago, there was an undersea slip of two plates which caused the earth to move in its orbit by some 0.00008 seconds, backwards, as tidal waves began to sweep over islands and shores. The whole world took notice and places like Tahiti got drastically drenched...
About a year and a half ago, it happened again. I got a call from a New Yorker, world traveling, connoisseur of music, bands, jazz, headphones and all things general interest & chit chat, ha... He knew I had his custom collector exotic koa PF-1's, and that he had my rare custom collector reference HP3000... Yeah, there was a little ripple in the water, but I wasn't so sure, ha...
Dave knows a million things about a million things and we had plenty to talk about over the next eighteen months. He seems to know everything about everyone and everything on head-fi as well, which made this classy guy a delight to experience the earth shattering extraction of my once beloved PF-1's. Of course the prolific far seeing genius was exactly right in his predictions, and so I shipped over to NY my Excalibur and he Tossed me his Holy Grail HP3000.
Stellar Deal, of course... Many, many knights sought me for the PF-1, but I was like a rock... Dave pulled it from me like he was the rightful king, which he is, of course. There may be many more ripples and waves to come from this royal treasure trade, and time will never be on its original axis again, but Dave and I will both be smiling for years to come for all the enjoyment we risked to bring each other. After all, owning both the Holy Grail AND the Excalibur is no quest but for the most gallant of dragon-slayers.
Dave sold me his Futuresonic Atrio M5, shipping them across the pond to the UK, box and all.
To my delight, they got here a mere 5 days after I paid, and of course, they were in wonderfully kept condition.
A super friendly, helpful, totally recommended Head-Fier!
I sold Dave a pair of IEMs and had no problems whatsoever. Ran into a few problems with e-mails not showing up, but he was adamant and did everything he could to keep in touch throughout the entire process. He's a great Head-Fier to deal with, and I would definitely not hesitate to do business with him again!
Bought a pair of UM2 from Dave and this post is way overdue but he was very prompt with his email responses and it was a very smooth transaction. Also gave me an unbiased opinion of comparable IEM's. Even so, I love the pair that I bought.
Thanks again Dave.
