RE: Should we send a "representative" to Magnepan?

Well, Wendell wears many hats, we'll see if this is one of them!

As I said, I have little manufacturing expertise myself, particularly at the level of a fab (though a surprising amount of what I did over the years required clean room conditions). But I sure agree with you regarding the importance of quality. When I was working in video post production, we spent a lot of time setting up PM schedules, training equipment operators, and designing efficient facilities with optimum signal quality. The amount of maintenance required in an old-line video facility was extraordinary. We had one technician who spent his entire day repairing just waveform monitors and vectorscopes, another guy who spent his entire day aligning cameras, telecines, and monitors, a guy who spent his day fixing 3/4" cassettes, several who spent their day maintaining VTR's (the old quads took 15 minutes per machine just to set up in the morning and needed new video heads every 200 hours, though in practice that was optimistic), etc. Fun weird stuff like aligning the upper head drum on a 1" VTR to within a micron by tapping it with the handle of a screwdriver (I kid you not).

Now it's a lot easier, and not nearly as much fun.
