The Que Audio IQ Rig….

I always love getting calls from the folks over at Roberts Camera here in Indy because either they have something very exciting to talk about that I likely don’t understand, or they have a product they want to send with me into the field to either evaluate or break.  Despite the fact that the aforementioned…Read More
