Will be fun!

Jeff

Sound great. Looking forward to it.

I'm open to suggestions... The bar is usually stocked, and this will be the week after my monthly poker game, so there may be enough "donations" of beer still in the fridge.

I just got a tentative BB schedule, and it looks like their last game would be Saturday 6:00PM which puts me to get to Jeff's after 7:00PM. I've told 2 Houston friends about it, and almost sure they'll be by too.

I have down for Demo discs:
- jvoth
-green453
-7channelfreak
-spaceman
-jautor

If you are attending and want a copy please PM me so I can start burning discs.

Looking forward to meeting all of you.

For those of us who requested demo discs, should we all chip in and by a spindle of blank discs for Leo, or were you just planning on bringing your own blanks?

So if you are interested in going in on a BD-50GB spindle, just add your name to this list with the quantity of discs you need to give to Leo so we know what size spindle we need to buy.

So far we have:

Spaceman-4 discs
jautor-3 discs
7channelfreak-5 discs

Well, we just received the schedule for my son's baseball practices and his 2nd practice is scheduled from 5-7pm on 2/15, so it looks like I'll have to miss this little get together. If someone else wanted to coordinate the purchase/sharing of a spindle, that would be great. 7channelfreak was kind enough to let me share his 10 pack, so he and I don't need to be part of the spindle count.

I was really looking forward to meeting everyone. Hopefully this will be the first of many and we can all get together again soon.

I had asked for a couple discs but never saw a cost/disc posted, please advise.

Off topic but wanted to mention that I sent Jeff Meier an email to possibly be part of a Houston area calibration tour he might do this spring. Thought others might want to consider.

He was over two weeks ago as I had previously talked to him but my room wasn't ready. He will be back in April.

They are much cheaper on the spindle as opposed to singles. I bought a ten pack for $78. I think there are better deals out there but I wanted to get them ordered so they had time to come in.

I'm burning disc as we speak smile.gif

If anyone else would like a copy(s) of any of the demo disc(s) ... Let me know ASAP.

I bought a 50 count spindle for $3 per disc on Amazon, prime delivered. The cheapest deals are on Ebay directly from Japan, but these take over 10 days to get delivered.

I just sent back a resoldered PS board and repaired convergence board to an owner in your area. He wants to get me out there to do his set, a Pioneer Elite CRT. If there is interest here I will connect you guys with each other and come out myself for that calibration and others.

I have just been referred to this thread. I have hosted a group like this when HDTV first became available. I belong to an active Houston Audio Society which meets most months.

SARA Appliances and Electronics in the former Tweeters store in Sugar Land has a nice home theater demo room, and is available to host meetings on Saturday and/or Sunday mornings. This would be a good place to meet and get organized.

I was originally going to grab a spindle and divide it up based on quantities requested here, but I can no longer make it to the meet. My apologies, but I think everyone is on their own now as far as supplying discs unless someone can get a hold of a spindle before next Saturday. Based on the replies here, I'm not sure there is the demand for a full spindle anyway. Hopefully this hasn't caused major problems for anyone. I'm sure you could always mail Leo your replacement discs if you need to order them and they don't come in before the meet.

I can order a 10-disc spindle (a $3.50 per disc), with only ~5 I think spoken for so far...

Wow - you obviously got more direct responses than were posted!

(I only need three total - one scope demo and two v2 demos).

So subtracting spaceman and 7Channel and correcting my total, we're at 15. I don't see any better deals for 20-packs, so still $3.50/each that I can get here via Prime as long as we order by Wednesday.

Looking to get a headcount for next Saturday, and yes spouses are welcomed and encouraged, too. To that end with Superleo not available until the evening - would be make sense for us to push the start time out to say 5 or 6pm so that folks we still be "interested" by then? Any objections we'll stick with 3pm as previously planned...

I have so far: (EDIT - adding guests that were known but I forgot to add)

jautor
aminchew
trek737 +1
superleo +3
paininfliction
speedoflight
7channelfreak
gdein
jvoth

And folks that have posted that they were interested - please confirm:

pbj16
avtexan
green453

I've got plenty of drinks, popcorn, and I'll make a few finger foods - everyone is welcome to add to the food mix.

And I have some surprise guests that showed up a lot faster than I expected - hopefully I'll have them dialed in a bit by next weekend!




(only 44 days left in the "trial" period - I think they're staying, though biggrin.gif)

See y'all next weekend!

Jeff, I have my brother in law (Brian) for sure coming, I would imagine he'll be there at the same time we'll be there (7ish) and a friend (Robert), not sure yet, but if he comes would probably be around 7 too.
