@Isantus would you be so kind as to host? Your room is the most finished and the only ATMOS setup. How is your June & July looking?

How about we all pitch in for food/refreshments?

I'll 2nd this. Good idea.

FWIW, the week of June 19-25 is not good for me, but I'm up for any other week in June/July.

I would be happy to host. If everyone contributes some food and drink we can use my room all we want. let's start by casting some votes on days and times. I would prefer a weekend as I travel for work and weekdays would be tough. Also I would like to avoid July 4th weekend. Otherwise I will let everyone cast their votes and we can go from there. I hope my room works for everyone. It is a modest and work in progress setup but my family and I enjoy it.

Any weekend in July from July 8 onward works for me. August is a little fuzzy atm, but I'm willing to pencil in a date if August is best for others.

And, thanks for offering to host.

Can everyone take a look at their calendars and see if Saturday July 15th works? I would say somewhere mid afternoon maybe around 2:00 or 3:00. I would think 2 hours would be good but I am open for adjusting any of these parameters. Let me know what works for everyone.

Looks like so far just 4 or 5 of us. If anyone else wants to join, let me know. We can figure out times but it is looking like a bit more in the afternoon or evening.

Let's aim for 3-6pm on Saturday July 15th. I will pick up some hot dogs and hamburgers we can grill. If everyone wants to BYOB, one person brings some chips, another person maybe bring buns and condiments, someone else bring a couple 2 liters, and the last person picks up some ice and snacks, we should be all set. Feel free to email me at ISantus@gmail.com and we can better coordinate through email. I can send out my address once everyone picks what they are bringing and confirms they are attending. Hopefully the Mini Martys and 1099s perform well for everyone. Keep in mind there are some Volt 8s and Volts 6s as well.

Ian,

Thought I would just chime in here since I had only replied on email. I will be attending on Sat, July 15.

Looking forward to this - should be a ball!

Truly sorry I can't make it because of our annual summer with party. Enjoy!

Btw, I'm sure you're all set with demo music... but if you are looking for new film material, John Wick 2 is a true audio treat if you have UHD and Atmos.

Welcome.

Many of us are in North Austin metro area, so you'll be in good company (Austin/Round Rock/Cedar Park/Leander).

Good question. We've only met three times so far, so that's difficult to fully ascertain. I would say so far the topics have focused on:

  • DIY speakers
  • Challenges in dedicated room construction
  • Who's got what A/V equip and their opinion of it

I used to be part of an older Austin theater group that somehow fell apart. Good to know there is another here.

Slightly off topic. I've found a local source of insulation materials at a reasonable cost. If anyone finds themselves at the point in their build where they need insulation products, PM me and I'll share.
