    If you really wanted to "leave it at that" I'd think you wouldn't have included it in your sentence because it hints at contempt. The next logical question would be "what exactly, do you mean by that?"..?

    You don't like Shady or sumpthin'?

    Same, it is indeed surprising considering we released the Sierra-1 over 14 years ago. I feel old

    Well that sent me on a trip down memory lane! I don't really post over at AVS but did find an old thread over at AH... you, Grant (ATL Audio), BSA, Tom V and Shady. 'Nuff said, I now know what it is you speak of, lol. I still talk to Grant on occasion. We exchanged phone numbers and he really had a lot to do with teaching me the ins and outs of REW and a MiniDSP.

    Btw, I do recognize you as Billy106. You've quoted me once or twice over there and advertised a pair of HTM 200SEs last year, right?

    Yeah, I was slow to get on the train—my first pair of S1s are now 11 years old. My gorgeous light cherry gloss cabinets...

    Of course, that's the cabinets. They were upgraded to NrTs like a year later, then eventually S2s, then almost immediately S2EXs. Likely the only pair of light cherry gloss 2EXs out there.

    Then, of course, I bought another pair of S1s and replaced the internals with my NrT internals. Then later I bought a pair of empty cabinets for those S1 internals. At this point I definitely don't need the instructions to take S1/S2s apart or put them back together.

    Eagerly awaiting the chance to crack open my Duos and upgrade them, too.
    Luna Duo LCR in HT, Sierra-2 EXs in study, S-1 NrTs in bedroom, S-1s at work, HTM-200s in kitchen. Brother owns CMT-340s and dad has a pair of CBM-170s. I also own a Rythmik L22 sub.

    Yea...I listed my 200se over at AH but I had to create a new user moniker because I couldn't remember my old one...but Alex aka "The Monkey"... recognize my room, since he visited me while in Toronto visiting family.I had ~3k post met lots of nice folks through that site...but I moved on...due to circumstances that arose and of course Mr. Larsen's becoming their head reviewer...I doubt he's even heard the Sierra's...I don't think Dave's ever sent a pair...iirc..for review...perhaps he can correct me...afterall reviews usually come with a cost.

    Anyhow...AH has plenty of activity or traffic and could send new or potential buyers ascends way...

    Wow -- you are officially our upgrade expert!

    Yes, I do believe you are the only customer with a pair of high gloss light cherry Sierra-2EX.

    Thank you for all the support - it is greatly appreciated.
