    Hello from Costa Rica

    Hola Chicos,

    I'm an old wolf sneaking and sniffing here. Thanks for letting me be part of you!
    I just wish to you a very happy listening and also I beg for your understanding with my poor English.

    When I was a kid, I told my dad that I wanted to learn and play Classical Guitar. I started when I was 12 years old. When I got to College, my dad told me that he needed to talk to me. When he said things like this, always was in a really serious manners. I got to the sofa at the living room, and he started to say this: Roberto, I am seeing you with your guitar, playing at least 5 to 6 hours every day. Tell me something, are you planning to pay your life bills with the guitar? If you are thinking to do this, I have to recommend to you, don't! And do you know why? Because you are not that good! Don't get me wrong here. I have being supporting you with this since you were 12 years old. Every Wednesday before two o'clock, there is an envelope with the money for your guitar teacher at the top of the desk. I love to listen to you, your mom, your brother and your friends, but paying bills of the life, is a different history. I ended studying electronics.

    I don't want to get you bored with my stories, so again, thanks!

    Happy listening!

    Re: Hello from Costa Rica

    Hola, hola...of course I remember you! Good to find you here!. Yup, I am a planar type speaker fan. Love Magnepans, too. Ribbon are excellent to my ears also...but honestly way of speaking, there are good products on these days. Speakers had changed for good in the last 10 years. Dynamic speaker are offering very low distortion, and great stage. I just, do love good quality sound. My taste is toward the Planar...but this is my liking.

    Happy listening!
