See post #130. Who do you want to build your amp? Mike Soldano's tech who has worked with him for 10+ years, or someone who just saw a Soldano last week? Who do you want to QA your amp? Mike Soldano himself, or a QA inspector who just saw a Soldano last week? It's not just about experience, it's about personal investment and commitment. Mike's name is on the amp -- he wants it to be right. The BAD guys may like their jobs, but they still just work there.
