Who stay with Merlin longest time

Hi all,
Just wonder, Merlin ex- and current owners - Who set the record of oldest marriage with Merlin? :)
My second anniversary in Sept, yet I already sent them in for a face lift (master BAM/RC) :-)
My system's evolving around Merlins - costly but fun
Happy listening
I'm at the nine year mark with no facelift or upgrades of any kind. I guess I just like my MM's as they are.
I'll definitely be following this thread since I'm considering buying the TSM-MMIs!
I bought mine back 1997 and had them upgraded in 1999 to the Basic W/BAM. I still use them everyday and love them. They have yet to become the weak link in my system.
