If it's not to late I'd like to come on down. Gotta talk to the wife, but I don't think it will be an issue. Don't really have anything to bring (compared to what will be there). I could bring some beer or food. Just let me know.

Updated thread with music and movie content. We will likely deviate from this somewhat depending on what people want to hear at the time.

I just saw this thread the other day. Bummer I will be out of town on Saturday. I live in the twin cities and would have loved to be there. Hopefully if there is a "3rd annual" next year I can make that one. I'll be following this thread just so I can feel like I am part of the action.

I turn the sharpness on my TV all the way up, because that's how I like my picture... real sharp.

There probably will be- it's a lot of work to set these up but it's fun to have them.

I might be able to attend. Couple of questions.
1. How are you feeding the music and movies? Disks or HTPC?
2. Hi-Res music, SACD's?
3. Are you interested in any other equipment, speakers, etc?

What other equipment do you have?

We will be using a combo of dvds blu rays and FLAC filed played through pc. There shouldn't be anything overly compressed.

I don't think any of the material will be MP3, and whatever isn't on a SACD, Blu-ray, or DVD, will be a FLAC or WAV file sent via optical cable straight to the AV7005.

I have some Dali speakers I would be able to bring. They are the smaller series. Helicon 300 MK2.
Are you using an optical or HDMI cable?

Also some hi-res tracks.

What would you want them run on amp wise? We are going to be running the speakers on high powered PA amps. We could set them up upstairs for a separate listening environment for those that don't fit in the main room.

Probably best to bring just yourself and some tracks to share. I'll add you to the attendees list!

Looking forward to hearing everybody's comments on the 215'S vs the U215's.

I am still working on getting my 215's dialed in but they are something special..
