I honestly have no idea who or what VerticalScope is but as long as the forums are still around and everybody is still cool beans, it's all good.

Welcome to the new owners :D

Well, first off I'm a bit shocked!!! I have come to feel like Sonnie...you...are a friend. A respected friend. A friend that shares my sence of morality & views. I will truely miss you & what you have brought to this forum. I wish you all the very best in your new endeavors. That's from the heart. So keep in touch!

In keeping with the true HTS tradition...I would like to welcome the new admin (name?). :wave: It will be interesting to see how things will continue/evolve. We have a great group of members here that should be able to accomodate any new avenues that might ensue.

It would be nice to hear a few things about you, so we can get to know each other. That is one of the things that has made this site so special...kinda like a family.

36 years old, live in Toronto Canada. I have lived here almost all my life. I spent about 8 months living in the California Baja Sur, Mexico in a city called La Paz. I am engaged to a wonderful woman from New York and if all goes right will be married by the fall. (We are all tied up with immigration lawyers at the moment). Before working for VS I have been a Wedding and Portrait Photographer, a content manager for a company that ran a hand full of online magazines, a print broker/designer and used to volunteer teaching kids and adults how to ride unicycles. Drink way too much coffee, love craft beer, Mexican food, have a lot of tattoos and want a bigger TV...

If you have questions please post them up. :)

Other than the unicycle riding and tattoos we have a lot in common. Maybe you can teach Mechman how to ride a unicycle while playing hockey. I will by the GoPro to donate to the project. :)

Thanks everyone for the very kind words... they are much appreciated.

Now that would be really funny... just seeing mech on a unicycle.

My wife can ride a unicycle (or use to could 30 years ago)... she is a photographer of sorts (but not near as much as when we first got married)... I drink way too much coffee too, but never acquired a taste for beer, will probably at Mexican tonight cause we love it so much... my wife and I have been talking about getting a tattoo (a parlor right down the road from us and got a friend who tattoos)... and I got way too many big TVs!

Good stuff to know Philip... you sound like a good ole home boy, as we call them down here in the south, with a hint of geek built-in.

Did I hear a bigger TV is in your future. :) jk.

Hope you will have some free time to stop by our showroom when you are in NY.

All the best in your new career and marriage to a great NY lady!!

Thanks Sonnie and John for providing the Forum/site to us geeks so that we can set up our systems without all the drama that we would have had to wade through in order to get good info.. You have really done a service to me, I am very grateful. This is the best Audio site that I know of and I think it will continue to be. Good luck in your new ventures.

I think we all drink too much coffee! Comes with getting :eek:lddude:. I would like to hear a bit about your personal interest in HT/2 channel. Do you have any gear your fond of or looking forward to getting one day? Seems like we are always dreaming of something new or better.

I'm also interested in if the speaker evals will continue. They were fun & seemed to garner a good bit of interest. I know I was looking forward to an upcoming bookshelf speaker evaluation. Don't know how this would work now that Ceader Creek Cinema is out of the equation...hoping there is some way to keep them going. Anyway, I imagine you have your hands full getting used to everything. Feel free to ask us questions also! Again, welcome aboard.

Speaker Evals are on my to do list to get ironed out so they will be able to continue. I am almost sure this is the plan but it involves more than just me.

Can we please restore R rated movie reviews? :)
+!... Maybe with it being in a separate section so it will not offend anyone?

Just want to wish Sonnie well on his new endeavor and thank him for playing such a major role in creating this great forum. I hope and expect that the core of what makes HTS great and unique will remain, and be expanded upon going forward.

Thanks Sonnie, and good luck. Don't be a stranger around here :wave:
