Hi Everyone-
Anyone in the area interested in a meet-up? I'll volunteer the house and theater - I'm in the final stages of an upgrade that's taken me over a year in various iterations and I'm eager to show it off. No fancy sconces, red velvet walls, or illuminated movie posters, but it isn't shabby either.
I'm posting to see if there's interest in scheduling a meet up - if, in the very least, for everyone to see the much hyped about JVC-RS1 in action with HD, HD-DVD and BRD-

So, post away - I'll guage the interest and get to scheduling hopefully some time in April-

Vigga,

I live in Cary and am on the RS1 pre-order list. It would be great to check out the new equipment. I have couple of other friends who have the FP bug. By the way, a store in Winston-Salem is supposed to have some RS1s (including a demo) at the end of the month.

There's been some discussion in the past, but we never got very far. Here's an older thread that had a fair amount of people at least posting in....

What's up in RTP?

My HT, is close to done. I just have to finish molding in it but I've been enjoying it for about 9 months now and just haven't done much to get done.

I'd like to hear about any upcoming events in the area. I don't have a whole lot to show off (HD1000u in my rec/theater room), but I would definitely like to see some setups in the area. I'm in the Sanford area.

I posted another thread to see how many people were interested in hosting or attending a meet for us Mid-atlantic folks. I expanded the area hoping people would/might drive 3-4 hours to attend a meet and maybe get a bigger group. I don't think we will have an Art-like showing, he is hosting 80 people this year, but maybe we can get 20 people together.

Let see if we can get this together. If you know other AVSers in our area that would be interested, direct them to the thread.

Thanks,

Would love to get more invoved.

Im in Raleigh.

Hello there, I was just getting the bug again to meet up with more people in the area and came across this newer post.

My suggestion is that we do this sooner than later even if its a small group just to get things going. I posted several times on the "What's Up In RTP" thread and we never did get together.

My home theater is just a bonus room but I just added an HD DVD drive and upgraded to Vista on my HTPC and it's starting to come together. I have very limited seating but I would definately be willing to host a get together.

Anybody out there still interested? Please let me know.

Josh

Bump...... I'd be interested in hosting a meet in a few months. I want to get a new subwoofer first, but after that I'm willing. Here's a couple of pictures of the 99% finished product....

Jerrod,
Very nice. I will have to check out your thread when i get a chance.
We are in the process of building a house with an unfinished second floor, but after that, I get to design my new space.
It would be nice to have a RTP gathering every month or two.

Yeah, but there certainly isn't much activity.... it appears....

I would also be interesting in a meet up, if folks dont feel comfortable having stranges to their homes maybe we could meet somewhere else? I know i use to do this with car related events all the time back in the day. Is there a particularly cool AV/HIFI dealer in the DRU area.

I'm semi new to the area so I dont know many folks. This seems like a good way to meet some fellow enthusiasts.

Matt,

There are some of us out here who are still interested in this. I've made some attempts at reaching out to people in the past but nothing has really come of it so far.

I've taken a few people over to Audio Advice as they have 3 theaters and multiple listening rooms. http://www.audioadvice.com/

Also, Audio Designs is a smaller shop with a single theater. http://www.audiodesignsonline.com/

I'm sure there are plenty of other showrooms/dealers in the area as well.

I just sent you a PM offline as well.

Josh

I've shot a few emails back and forth with Josh and I'm considering having a small get together either on the 19th or 26th.

I'm located in East Raleigh and fairly easy to find. I have a modest Media room that can seat about 5 and a deck with chairs as needed. From what I understand folks have tried to put together a Raleigh area meet a few times and it hasnt quite come together. Maybe we can change that.

Speak up if you are interested. Josh is going to be taking names and contacting folks to help organize. Once we have a list I'll provide exact details of the meeting place.

Hey everybody,

This is really great that Matt is stepping up like this. Let's take advantage of this to start a more regular meet going in the RTP area.

Send me a PM with your contact information if you are interested in this or post back to this forum.

I'm afriad that I reluctantly need to cancel my planned group meeting for this weekend. I had hoped today to start working with Josh to put together a time and driving directions. Unfortunately a family emergency has come up and I've decided its best if I clear my schedule for th next few days to make myself available to them. Once all of this works itself out I'll post a new date for us to work off of. Sorry guys.

im in apex too, ten-ten and holly springs road, wow. I would host but the room is only a 10x10, further, its a plasma, no projector. Great system, small room, just not enough space. Did i mention im only 23 ( i am married though, if that makes a difference), i think i would feel awkward doing this meet if you guys are all like 50+ years old, not to say thats bad, just awkward. I luvvvvvvvvv avs though, nice to know some sound people are in the area though. And yes, i have a great system myself, no HTIB, its the real deal.

Haha, I'm 22, so you aren't alone. Raleigh/Cary border. I have a PJ and B&W set-up in my apartment, so that's pretty much my "theater."

heres my setup, as you can see, its not big enough by a long shot for hosting.....not even a 10x10

my view

my equipment

my HD collection

these are my parents setups which obviously would be better for hosting, would not happen, but just for a peep

Hello,

My parents are now living in Raleigh and I plan on visiting them over Memorial Day weekend.

Both my brother and I have HTs and while trying to be the number 1 son, we each give our cast-offs to our parents!!

We've pushed for them to get a HT in the bonus room, but of course they don't see the need. Stubborn parents!! Although they do have a nice set-up. Sonance 7.1 in wall THX Speakers and a 52" plasma with a MArantz Reciever.

Maybe they need a push in the right direction to go full fledged HT. Projector, chairs and such.

Anyone planning on meeting over the Memorial Day Weekend?

Rich
