SUMMER VACATION ! ! !

*

I will be out of town from July 19 - August 5.  Maxing out the gas cards!  A Hot Springs tour of Colorado, Arches Park in Moab, Utah and Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. Gotta get these precious family trips in before the kids are "Tweenies" and think I'm "totally uncool".  

*

I will be checking my email, brian@whetstoneaudio.com and will have my cell phone. Please leave me a message and I will get back with you ASAP.

*

Summer also means my kids are not in school so my wife and I are bouncing them back and forth.  Should you roll up to the shop and I am not there, PLEASE CALL MY CELL  512-784-8282.  I'm probably close by and can be there in a few minutes... I may arrive in a wet swim suit.

It's always a great idea to make an appointment.

Thanks,

Brian

EPOS HAVE LANDED!


Y'all can't imagine how hard it is to find great gear that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. After years of being anti Chi-Fi, I've bit the bullet and have in Epos once again. Years ago I carried them and have always loved their sound. Now they're built in China, but WAIT! THEY DON'T SUCK! In fact I'm surprised to say the workmanship is A+. Nothing cheapened here. In fact, the packaging blew me away! Double boxed, banana plugs and floor spike protectors. Inner cloth bags, not plastic. DNM internal wiring. They arrived unscathed (a rarity). So, I'm starting to pay closer attention to the final product and not so much their origin. There is just no way getting around the fact that cheaper labor produces less expensive products. I was concerned about the factory and people working there so I asked the importer about the working conditions....

"The speakers are made by kids in china that don't know they are being abused and they usually die before they figure out what they are doing is fatal. The good news is some of the children have as many as 8 arms as result of birth defects caused by the factory dumping toxic chemicals into the local river the workers draw their drinking water from. The octo-armed kids are incredibly productive thus allowing us to make even more profit. Seriously, the speakers are basically hand made in an ISO9001/2 factory that has a superb reputation."

I LOVE a sick sense of humor, so I couldn't resist picking them up,,, again.
