Thanks, Jason. It's such an overwhelming hobby at times. wink.gif

I spent part of my day auditioning speakers at Fred's, Encore Audio and Chelsea Audio today and now I'm confused as to what to do... tongue.gif

smckenzie04,
Welcome. I work for Christenson, and I have worked for Ray on a number of occasions. He also introduced me to the group.

Yamaki,
Welcome! There are some audiophiles in this group as well. I would call myself an audiophile if my budget permitted me to. smile.gif

Jason,
Thanks for hosting. I wish we could have stayed longer. That hour + went by in a blink. We didn't make it past the three cabinets. My kids eyes were popping out of their sockets with disbelief. eek.gif

Did anyone else make it over there? I think we left about 4:15 and no one else had shown yet.

Thanks for attending Jamie, hope it was a good time for the kids.

Nobody else showed up so we played for a bit since everything was running (which I figured might pop a breaker but both rooms ran for hours with no issues, although the main HT volume was turned way down).



If interested, you are welcome to come back and play games or watch a flick (maybe some 3D).

Take care,
Jason

That's too bad. I must say you guys missed out. The setup Jason had was VERY impressive. Not only were the cabinets up and running, but he had the 133" ready with the huge arcade stick and 3D gaming (which I regrettably did not get the chance to try). He also had the second room available with the racing seat, Xbox, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, etc. It was a gamer's paradise. Jason, I would love to come back soon and try some of the other toys!

Only reason I didn't stay longer is that I was invited to the Trailblazer game last evening with court side seats. That was pretty incredible.

Jamie,

Well no doubt there, easy choice, do you stay and play an NBA Basketball game or do you go to one and sit 'courtside' ... biggrin.gif

My dad had box seats when we lived in Sacramento and it was awesome, been to a couple Blazer games as well and it was great.

Thanks for the kind words, let me know when you have the time to come by and we'll set it up. wink.gif

Nathan,

When you have the time shoot me a pm and we can set something up. wink.gif

Funny you ask. I was sizing up a couple of those guys during warm ups. I had myself believing I could possibly hang with them for a few minutes...then they started playing! eek.gif It's impossible to grasp the speed and physicality of the NBA from TV and/or the "cheap" seats. Sitting that close to the action is totally different and they are HUGE.

I think Sacramento has one of the best NBA fan bases, so I bet that was awesome.

If you get any PM's from folks and decide to set it up for them, let me know. I'm fairly flexible (mostly dependent on kids schedules) and would love to hang out with some of the others I've met before or meet some new HT enthusiasts.

Again, I HIGHLY recommend anyone considering taking Jason up on his offer to do it. You don't even have to be a gamer (I'm not), simply seeing his setup is worth the trip.

Hope everyone is doing well.


I have a 100" electric matte white Elite screen in great condition (black case) that I will be posting on CL but figured I would post it here first to see if anyone in the local group is interested.

I am including some large sized L brackets to use for mounting if you want it to drop down in front of a tv, I think they come out about 18 inches (these were an additional $25).

I will also include a long white heavy duty extension cord to supply power (I think it is ~ 20').

This is the same exact screen and it will come with everything just as new including the box... http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-ELECTRIC100H-Electric-Projection/dp/B000YTRFEG

$140 takes it or I will sell the screen without the L brackets and extension cord for $125.

It must be picked up as I do not have a vehicle that can transport it.

Thanks,
Jason
