I think it will be great for all of us to share our experiences with great guys in this industry, helping others to make easier decisions the next time they need to buy equipment.

My recomendations:

Tyler Lashbrook, from Tyler Acoustics
Mark O┬┤Brien, from Rogue Audio
Vincent Chen, from Emotiva
Clint Hartman, from Wyred 4 Sound
Brian Ding and Enrico Castagnetti, from Rythmik Audio

Ralph Karsten -- Atma-Sphere
Roger Modjeski -- Music Reference

there are so many wonderful folks in the industry - here are just a few that quickly come to my mind:

Ralph Karsten (Atma-Sphere)
EJ / Clint (Wyred4Sound)
Kevin Hayes (VAC)
Roy Johnson (Green Mountain Audio)
Mike Elliot (CounterPoint)
Pretty much anybody at Pass Labs, Wilson Audio, Zu Audio
Ty Lashbrook with Tyler Acoustics. Nicest guy I have dealt with in audio. Great speakers too.
