    Jim Smith

    I just had a 60 minute skype chat with Jim. I have been following Jimís comments on AS for some time now and with interest. I can hand on heart say that my chat with Jim was educational and I canít wait to implement his advice. In short, I need to reconfigure my room. And at fairly minimal cost (I need to reposition my speakers and will need longer speaker cables). Other tweaks involve no or minimal cost.

    I highly recommend one of Jimís one-on-one sessions. You will be speaking to someone at the top of his game. Special forces.

    Re: Jim Smith

    get his book & dvd, read/watch it at least 3 times, get back to us. such an easy piece of advice, few adhere... if you have, no insult meant but there is some great advice in these that have saved me thousands of dollars & really ramped my learning curve with lateral thinking...
