    You're so right Bill. After 25 years of IT Projects, I much prefer this. But the saying "how do you make a small fortune in high end audio? Start with a large fortune!" is sooooo true.

    Hiring smart, young go getters to do the IT project work, respond to BS RFP's, RFI's and RFQ's was the best thing I ever did.

    You're borrowing from a great mind .

    Richard Branson was once asked how to become a millionaire. His answer was simple: Be a billionaire and buy an airline.

    The cold dinner was accompanied with a fiery stare.

    The interconnects have a 3 position switch and the starting point for selection is the line level impedance of the source (sending) unit.

    Mike does Magico use MIT wire internally in their speakers?

    I just left it at Medium (40-100ohms). The Pass amp is 100ohms. The Vitus is 75ohms.
