You might also like RockNRolla (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1032755/reference) if you like Guy Ritchie. It's a better movie than Revolver IMO and also has a great sound track.

Yeah! You were worrying me there for a moment Jerry with that monumental bass boost! :) I envisaged you with the WOTW pod escape sequence on repeat ;)

Amps are usually very heavy. Putting them at the top will unbalance the rack and possibly make it dangerous, especially if it is moved. Putting all the weight at the bottom lowers the center of...

Good point. With Pro you have to generate a new key every 30 days - if their server goes, the Pro Kit becomes junk. Not really worth worrying about IMO. On the scale of things to worry about, it...

Interesting. Although it makes me suspicious as, IIRC, all of us who tried averaging a few spots vs a single spot found very little difference.
