    Re: Exciting news -- Suncoast Audio goes brick and mortar

    Congratulations Mike! Extremely well executed and a great array of gear. I just caught up on this thread and noticed that just about everything in your shop you at one time owned in your home and spent many intimate hours with. I bet that makes a great experience for anyone shopping gear with you -- who better than someone who personally owned it!

    Mind if I ask a few questions:
    1. Did you have to sell the Porsche -- I hope not.
    2. What interactions are the tiles in the ceiling having? One of the dealers I use had problems with them rattling with low bass so he pulled them all and sprayed the ceiling with this black, spikey, almost tar-like substance and it's sooo much better. I wonder if you get the right tiles if you might not have that problem -- but I'm really curious if they're giving you any problems and how you're dealing.
    3. I didn't see any Focal's in the photos? Did I miss something?
    4. Do you have a list of your rooms and gear in each?

    Thanks a ton and congrats all around. I wish you great success. I may be visiting your area in the Fall. If so, I'll drop you a note and see if you're available.

    Re: Exciting news -- Suncoast Audio goes brick and mortar

    1. Porsche is gone. Had to sell it to pay my late Mother's death taxes in Canada. Her house took a while to sell, and the taxes were due, so....
    2. No tiles rattling, I went for heavy ass acoustic tiles used in recording studios, churches, etc. HOWEVER, the cold air returns did rattle in the beginning, but I've since applied thick weather stripping around the frame. Problem is 95% fixed. I'm still looking for heavier cold air return vents. It's only noticeable now if I get the ladder and put my ear up to the cold air vent.
    3. I loaned my Sopra 3's to a customer in Tampa to demo. My Sopra 1's are here and sounding great.
    4. No list, but I can make one.

    Thanks for the kind wishes! I hope you can visit.

    Mike
