Going back to school with Bob Carver

Post by Toy Maker » Thu Apr 05, 2012 6:59 pm

Well, we made it to Snohomish, WA late last night.
Alex , Angelo and myself will be hunkered down for the next 5 weeks in "The Lab" with Bob, as we begin the final stage of tuning the new ALS speakers for final production.

I won't be posting on the forum very much, as it's not very easy to upload photos with an iPad.
However, I have started an "event" on Facebook, that allows everyone to post, upload photos, and chat.
So, if you want to be kept up to date, and see many "insider" photos and info, I suggest you get on Facebook and "Like" the event, you will be updated as new into is added.

Great. I hate Facebook. ](*,)

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Reluctantly hopped on. Now I'm on "Facebook". Should I do a dance now? Perhaps order a pizza in celebration? :rolleyes:

Damned social network crap.

No, rah nailed it. This site has been used for years to do the social networking. I don't like anything about Facebook or what it stands for. To me it's the same damned thing to me as having to take the bus to get to work, instead of using your own car. Yeah, they'll both get you to work but one of them is a different vehicle that is not preferred by me to get there.
