I didn't even know this had been reprinted on AVS. I don't hang out here much, but I appreciate the kind words from guys I respect. I am sometimes cautious about writing about Michael, as people have such polarized opinions of him, but I am proud of the work I did with him both in the studio as well as at the ranch. His creativity and freedom to try new things with technology (for example we put 20,000 watts of music through EAW speakers in the trees, triggered by a Crestron, for when people drove through the gate they would be welcomed with a wall of sound!) made that a period of my life a lot of fun, and a great learning experience. I have done larger, more elaborate systems since then, but when one of my systems made Michael laugh and yell his approval, few clients can match that level of enthusiasm or gratitude. As I said, I am proud of the work we did together... he was a great client and a good friend.
