Dennis is a great person, honest, etc., but beyond, that my experience is that he is one of the best speaker designers around today. I have had lots of contact with others but Dennis is one of those rare people who does it for love and not for the money. That being said, he should flourish so BUY HIS SPEAKERS.
I have to add something to this. Jim Salk is also one of the true "good guys" in this business so BUY HIS SPEAKERS TOO and I would want to buy his SALK stream media server when he comes out with a price. Jim and Dennis are the best people in this biz that I have dealt with and I am really old (without being dead) with lots of experience.
My 2 cents.
P.S. I did not intend on buying Dennis Phil 2's but when I visited him, I realized, how can you do better for the price (IMHO you can't)?
