Thank you Nelson
 
Through out the years I have built a Zen IV, Aleph 5, Aleph X and an Aleph P. I have always wondered how they would sound versus the real thing. As I grew up, my family never really celebrated birthdays and to this day I never felt the need to celebrate mine. I always purchased my wife a gift on her birthday and took her out to dinner but my birthday was just another day. I never realized how much that bothered my wife Michele until this year, after 30 years of marriage. Well she couldn't stand it anymore and she bought me a birthday present. She called Nelson (I doubt he remembers) a few months ago and asked about an X250 because she only had $4000 to spend. Nelson recommended she call Reno HiFi and ask about a refurbished X350. Well lo and behold an x350 is on it's way to me. She is a little sad because she wanted to get me the 350.5 but she would had have to ask me for the extra cash and she knew I would have said no. I am super happy that she wanted to do this for me and never realized how important celebrating my birthday was to her. This means more to me than she will ever know and I want to thank Nelson for helping her out.

"only 4000" for a gift. Hmmm I think that would cover 10 years of my gifts at least!:D

She is making up for 30 years of no birthdays in one fell swoop.
