Further, when I spoke with Rick (while thinking my Phil 3 order might be cancelled) about possibly getting a kit from him for full-range towers, he very humbly expressed concern that his posting on the thread might be seen as him trying to poach clients away. I told him I didn't see it that way, especially in light of Dennis retiring and the fact that Rick wasn't here peddling his gear. Thank you Rick, again!, for your time that day. I look forward to getting to meet you in Oakland at the audio show.
Though I have not personally had any contact with Dave
, though when I was talking to Ascend about going to audition, Dina was amazingly helpful and generous with her time answering my questions.
I am grateful to all four gentlemen mentioned above for their contributions. Dennis, of course, is why we are here. But Jim, Rick and Dave have been great in sharing with us and helping try to maintain perspective.
One last note, and a special thank you to Jim: While discussing whether my Phil 3 order would stay alive and be completed in his house, he kept to his agreement with Dennis regarding the cabinet, and priced out the rest of the work very fairly. I did not fully grok before the extent of what was going on regarding the cabinet work and cost, but do know and understand now. All I can say at this point is for those who feel differently about the pricing of the BMR, that is of course your right, but by my experience and his actions, Jim is a man of integrity. I am honored to be a customer of his now, as well as of Dennis! Thank you, Jim.
Best to all.
