To Jeff Fritz,
Another great thought piece from you [“Jeff’s Getting a New Stereo System: Part One”]. We can only imagine the wonderful times and great listening sessions you must have enjoyed through the years with the access you have had to truly high-end stereo gear. The gear you have ended up with in your listening room is truly the subject of envy (without malice) to a great section of the audio-loving public and having this era of your listening life change must be tearing at your being.
But having this change can truly be a revelation for you and your readers in the fact that you are now building a system and trying to approach the level of performance you know exists. A great journey awaits you and your readers, Mr. Fritz, and the envy is still ours. I live in Australia and have just discovered SoundStage! Oz, although I’ll keep reading your pieces on Ultra. Remember it’s only about the music, so enjoy.
