Your room definitely makes me want to turn up my subs some more! The Underworld demo with your setup is just plain sick. Bunch of fun!

Jeff

Thanks Jeff! You were a big help during my build and I am glad you enjoyed it.


See you at the next one.

Ron,


Thank you for allowing me to attend the GTG. You and your wife were very hospitable and were great hosts. You're theater is truly inspirational. The build quality, sound and video are all first class. It was great meeting all of you who attended. I look forward to making the next GTG.

I am glad you could make it. We enjoyed meeting you as well. Thanks for the compliments on our theater.

We will see you at the next GTG.

PS: I am honored that I was apart of you first post!

Ron,

Thanks for hosting the GTG. I really enjoyed your lovely home and theater. There's nothing like sitting in a beautiful home theater watching a movie or listening to some good music knowing you're surrounded by all of the love and hard work that went into building the room. Yours definitely shines.

Rick

I'm in Sugar Land, and just trying to get a new system set up. I wish I had known you were meeting, so I could meet some people and get some ideas. I'll subscribe to this thread, and maybe I'll be able to make a future meeting.

Ron and Kim,


Sorry for the late response but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your hospitality and providing this opportunity to see and hear a truly first class Home Theater. You have done an excellent job Ron and you should be very proud of your accomplishment, and Kim - what a trooper for putting up with the whole ordeal. I am sure you feel it is worth it now, but you can't tell me you didn't consider tossing Ron off the upstairs balcony a time or two during the midst of this project.


Looks like I may have been the one that forgot to step back when everyone was asked who wanted to host the next event. I would be happy to volunteer but it looks like it may be some time mid - to late October or early November. We have plans for most of September, a trip to San Antonio on the 8 - 12 of October, and I am planning on being in Austin Halloween weekend for the F1 race.


I will get together with my wife and reply back in a week or so with some possible dates.


Best regards,

10/17 and possibly 10/10 will work for me. I could also make it on 10/31.

I've never met any of the Houston people in persosn, so I hope the date will work out for me.

Thanks!

Dave

Yes but you automatically volunteer your theater for a meet as soon as it's deemed complete by the Forum members - not when you say it's "done" ('cause that never happens...)

I truly enjoyed the last meeting (am the person sitting in the right front seat) and have passed my information along per the instructions -- been an audiophile and home theater buff forever . Although I have a couple of rooms as theaters (two projectors and two plasma sets with 7.1 surround setups), the rooms also serve other purposes and I have not had the room to do a built from scratch dedicated HT room. But it is on my list to do someday ...

I care less about pics, but I'd be interested to know what kind of equipment is in the theater, since it would be a road trip.

I might have to bail on CEDIA this year since I have no place to stay anymore

See if I can work some magic for a back up plan. The hotel prices near the convention center are silly expensive now. I need to be on the bus route.

I'm not sure what days you plan on attending but I'd pick you up at your hotel and drive you to convention center. I haven't picked a hotel yet but I'll be staying out a ways to reduce the cost as well.
