SE Michigan GTG June 17th 2017

We have a date! Saturday, June 17th!!!

Ok guys. The poll ended up being a tie between the 10th 17th and the 24th with most mentioning the 17th and 24th so I decided its going to be on Saturday June 17th. Very casual, pretty much all day event. Wife and kids should be out by 10 or 11. Noon max. No real curfew. If you show up a little earlier than that, no big deal, especially if your bringing equipment etc. I know we have some people driving quite a bit so hopefully the large time frame will make it worth your trip.

If this date works for you, send me a PM or email me at bh6751@gmail.com and I will add you to the attendee list and send you my info. Please include your name, email, and phone #

As of right now, I will of course have my theater available and I also will have a two channel setup upstairs on the other end of the house for people to listen to as well.

Everyone that wants to come is welcome. You guys know that this is more than just about the material and gear. Its great just meeting fellow members and talking about our favorite hobby. I have plenty of space and there will be lots of food and beverages available.

It would be great if some of the familiar members of the AVS world could come. @imagic @Mark Seaton @jsalk @Erich H @mtg90 @tuxedocivic @LTD02

I'm sure I am leaving people out. You guys, don't be shy! Come hang out with The Michigan crew and have a great time!

Awesome! What's the exact date of the GTG I'm going to Disney around that time with family and trying to see if I can make it. This should be a lot of fun! If I can make it I'll bring the HTM-10's and a few others. I'll have to see what I can did up. I'm re doing some PI speakers at the moment to.

Sounds great. It will be great to see another Michigan theater as well as some of the other local enthusiasts. I voted for the 10th, but would likely be available on other dates.

Love to make it if it works out! Unfortunately only the 24th works for me, but count me in if that ends up being the date. Thanks for the invite!

Hey Brian I'm not a heavy hitter, but I'll definitely try to make it. Can't wait to see and hear your room and talk about this hobby with others.

I don't know if I have anything unique that people would be interested in hearing. My JTR 210's are big and heavy, but I suppose I could bring those (maybe just a 2 channel setup upstairs) if there is enough interest. I also have a JTR Orbit Shifter LFU, though I'm only bringing that if someone wanted to buy it from me and take it home that day.

I have to check the calendar (my wife's) but I'll definitely be there. I'd offer to bring my titans if anyone wants to hear them. There easy to transport with the removable top section. Let me know!

I didn't vote because I probably can make it any of the dates. I would very much like to hear the Titans, @Jk7.2 , but aren't you having another get-together sometime soon?

Yes I will be. I'll still bring 'em to Brian's. In case someone can't make the one I have later. Maybe after Jeremy has his. We are supposed to do a side by side of the titans and his qsc's at his place. We will see how it all works out.

I'm in depending on the final date (can't vote on Tapatalk). I'll have to check the social director's calendar first of course.

My anniversary is on the 7th... so I'm pretty sure the Saturday after that is out for me.

I'm relatively new to the forums but I'd definitely be interested in meeting some people with similar interests. I'm in Farmington Hills so I'm really close as well.

I have Fusion-10 Pures right now but I can't promise I will still have them when the GTG happens. If you want to check them out sooner, just let me know.

48188, Canton?!! You are very close to where I grew up in Dearborn Heights! I'm in Texas now and I don't think I can make it to your GTG, but it would have been great to meet some audio enthusiasts.

I lived in Dearborn Heights for a short time. I have a lot of family that's from There. I also plan on moving to Texas someday myself.

Absolutely.....I would bring them with me , but my back will not let me. Shall I bring a pair of fusion4 quad 4, the ones I assembled as towers ? Perhaps we can set them up as a 2 channel to test out at your house ?

Yeah sure! Sounds like there may be a few people bringing speakers over. We could set them up and compare them.

I could order something like this. It says you can hook up 6 pairs of speakers to it

Does anyone have speakers they can bring that are not from diysoundgroup? Just curious if anyone has any Meniscus kits, other Jeff Bagby or Paul Carmody speakers.
Any Statements or Clearwave speakers. If its on with Brian and if he has room in his home.


Maybe we can reply with what speakers we are able to bring and if its too long we can vote on most wanted?

I know someone who has offered to bring a pair of non-DIY speakers that I am pretty excited to hear but I don't want to speak for them

There is plenty of room on the main floor. There is a two story great room that is open to the kitchen. Quite a few people can be up there hanging out listening to different speakers. Plenty of room in the main hallway for speakers on standby to. All the beer and food will be up there as well so anyone who's not in the theater will not be bored!
