Your last post expounds on what I was saying. So you now agree with me?

Ken, I feel for you but anytime you say "my maid" you lose all sympathy.

I am so very sorry! And the unfortunate lesson is . . . Don't let the MAID even remotely near your audio gear. I hope you fired here on the spot for such sloppy, uncaring work?

AVB,

My wife earns enough to pay for the maids entire day's work in from 30-95 minutes depending on her day, not to mention my income. Why would we waste an entire Saturday ourselves cleaning the house??? that is economically foolish and generally un-fun. We work hard and do make god money, so time is very important to us.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!

My maid has been with me since 1999 when I was still a bachelor. She is part of our twisted little family. She looks after the cats when we are away, brings me exotic Polish beers and is super nice. I hooked her up with one of my previous partners and they too couldn't be happier with her.

There is something so nice about coming home Tuesday afternoon to a spotless house and all your laundry done and neatly folded and put away.... You should see how neat my underwear drawer is (OK, skip that but you get the idea...)

Yeah, I am not happy about her trashing my stylus, but that is replaceable. In so many ways, she is not!

Ok thanks, can we move on now. Personally, I don't think you need to justify yourself anymore.

Kal,

When will you review the Classé SSP-800? Soo I hope Classé should send you an evaluation copy, maybe you should ask Dave N.
