    Visit With Jim Smith

    Last week I drove over to Jim's place to listen to his fabulous system again. He had made a few changes and I wanted to hear what he'd done. Jim had re-wired his system,including his outboard crossovers,with new wire. He also had his speakers in a slightly different location, a little closer to the listener. It was as good or better than the first time I was there. If you get the chance to book one of his Roomplay Reference session at his place it's well worth it. It really opens your eyes to what is possible with an audio system.

    We also talked about my system and what I should consider next. I always learn something every time I'm around Jim that helps me on my audio journey!
