Frank..., Frank..., Oh My God...

Frank,

OMG!!!!!

I am very glad you posted your amazing Statement e2 System here at the greatest ML site on the Internet, "The ML Club"...:cheers:

OK ~ Maybe our first "International Get-together", I motion we do it at Frank's house... If it's OK with you that is Frank... :drool:
Even though - I've never been to Europe.
Even though - I would probably be strip searched several times, just for fun, just getting to Berlin Germany.
Even though - I hate flying in a plane... I do think we should all be responsible for bringing our own individual 'Drool Buckets' with us, for good manners, as a courtesy... :drool:

But seriously, Your dream system is simply inspiring. We are all honored to have your system here among us... :cheers:

Yawn


Just kidding, I'm reacting to the oversized fonts from others ;)

Very nice setup, love the modern decor and the nice set of gear.

Frank,

Wow, I'd have to say that you have a music lovers dream come true system. I've seen the Statement E2's in various wood trims, but with the styling of your room the black trim compliments it perfectly :) I also really like the whole presentation of your setup. Sweet!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful system with us :)

Hi,
first - thank you for the positive feetback. To give you an idea how my listening room looks here are some additional pictures. The racks and amp-stands are from COPULARE Germany.

Frank, that is one of the nicest looking spaces I've seen in a while. Great décor.

And of course, those e2's look great in there.

It is a VERY impressive room... of course IMHO, e2's look good just about anywhere... in fact... Casa de Garvey in Austin comes to mind :haha1:

Frank,

Please stop posting pictures of your system. Every time I see them I soil myself. I am at work and it is embarrassing.

:eek:
