I know some of you will want to comment on how HeadRoom has been a part of your enjoyment in this hobby. I also know it'll be a little embarassing to me, so I thought I should start a thread for you to thank HeadRoom for our work, and keep it in one tidy spot. I'm also interested in hearing how folks at HeadRoom, other than myself, have helped you out, they work very hard at something that isn't necessarily their passion or hobby; I know that they'd appreciate you gratitude. I'll start. I want to thank Roger and Carl. You don't know these guys, but they are the ones that pulled $225,000 out of their pocket for me to start HeadRoom. (I suppose this might be the hobby's first "sorry about your wallet" moment.) They thought I might be able to put productivity where my mouth is, and if I've done anything to get this hobby started it was all because they had the courage to invest in a crazy guy who thought headphones could be more than what they were 15 years ago. Thanks! I also want to thank all the HeadRoom employees I've had the pleasure of working with over the years. I may have been the wildman that had some interesting ideas, but they were the ones doing the heavy lift day after day that makes a company a living, breathing, productive being. HeadRoom is now at a point where even my hairbrained idea like a speaker stand is strongly refined as it goes through the gauntlet of the product developement team. (You should have seen my first drawings of the thing; it was a completely different beast as it first appeared in my head.) We have a strong team of strong headed people here at HeadRoom who work VERY hard to make the rubber hit the road, and I am immeasureably greatfull for all their efforts. Thanks! I want to thank Jude and the community here. Our products are nothing but black boxes but for the community of headphone enthusiasts here. It's that enthusiasm for great audio reproduction that breaths life into HeadRoom. I remember 15 years ago when I was shouting into a black hole advocating the benefits of headphones. I remember writing ads and brochures waiting all day for the phone to ring. I remember thinking, "OMG! Will this ever take off? Am I just a lone moron betting my life on a worthless audio accessory?" Well, you all have given me far more than hope in my love of great reproduction on headphones. I now know with confidance that my initial belief in headphones as being a great avenue to get high-fidelity performance is founded on something so real and bigger than HeadRoom that others will recognise it if just given the chance. Thanks! And I want to thank this community for something else: I NEVER had any idea that this thing could be a legitimate hobby. I just thought it was an unexplored opportunity for a new category of high-end gear. You guys turned it into a REAL hobby with a whole variety of avenues of exploration from meets to DIY. While I pretty clearly saw what commercial headphone offerings might be, I allways thought I'd end up being just another vendor at a trade show, and surrounded in my PR work-life by a bunch of suits. You guys have built a community in which I get to proffesionaly participate with a bunch of great guys and gals in a very sincere and genuine way. I get to be my hairy old self, wearing Hawaiian shirts and baring my belly ('Course you probably could have done without that), and I don't have to put on some baloney artificial persona as I work. Thank you VERY much for that. I can say I've enjoyed every minute working the field shoulder to shoulder with MOTs and enthusiasts alike, helping to build this community that we all so love. Thank you, thank you, thank you. OK, feel free to lavish praise. But I'm most interested in the specific things we've done to help you, and how we could keep making them better.
