Then you know which weekend to avoid scheduling the crawl.

I would be interested. I could host if you are running low on spots, but it looks like there is quite a bit of interest already.

My room is somewhat small. May have to have people loiter off to the sides if we get a big turn out and cycle them through the seats.

Equipment is:

JVC RS46 Projector
130" Scope Screen
B&W CM9 Towers
B&W CMC2 Center
B&W CM5 Rears
HSU 15 Sub
Integra DHC 9.9 Preamp
Emotive XPA-3 Amp
Rotel 1075 Amp
Sony 550 Blu Ray
WD Live TV

We really enjoy it, but it's not a high end setup compared to what others are running. So if we end up with a lot of hosts we can always bow out due to the size of the room. But I'm good either way.

I would vote for early May so the weather shouldn't be a factor. Later in April should work too.

My HT setup is as follows:

Vizio M Series 65"
Yamaha Aventage RX-A1000
Emotiva XPR-5
Oppo BDP-103
DirecTV Genie
Roku Streaming Stick
DIY HTPC/Media Server
Polk Audio LSiC
Polk Audio LSi15
Polk Audio LSiFX
SVS 20-39PC
SVS PC12 NSD

Heights are still in the works but I have a pair of Polk Audio LSi7s for that. Trying to find a mount that the wife approves of.
Cabling is MIT Terminators and AudioQuest FLX series for SCs, ICs are BJCs and the majority of the power cables are Pangea Ac-14s with the amp running a Shunyata Venom PC.

I know it isn't ideal, but the TV is mounted over the fireplace and seating is on the opposite wall mostly.

In the HT/Living room, there is seating for 4 in the comfy seats and then 5 pub height chairs. Our townhouse has an open floorplan so the living room, dining room and kitchen are all open to each other.

Room treatments are currently just the furniture. I am eventually going to do the rear wall in faux stone with printed fabric movie poster absorption panels. I think the combination of reflection and absorption will work well with our "bouncy" floors (laminate).


The 2 channel system is in the master bedroom (may be able to do 2 people at a time in the bedroom...ok...that didn't not sound that disgusting in my head...)

Cary Audio SLP-03 Pre
Musical Fidelity A5CR Amp
Peachtree DACiT
Cambridge Audio DVD-89 UDP
Kenwood KD-550 TT with Cambridge Audio Azur 651P Phono pre and AT cart (should be swapped long before this comes to fruition hehe)
Polk Audio SDA SRS 2.3TLs with full upgrades (that list would choke a donkey!)
Polk Audio DSW MicroPro 2000 Sub (rarely used but majorly loved)
Speaker cables are MIT Terminator bi-wire
ICs are all MIT AVPs
PCs are Pangea AC-9s and AC-14s


While I am happy to host, bear in mind that we have a 2 bedroom townhouse so the space is far from ideal. Not from a packing people in standpoint as we have had parties with 30 to 40 people attending hehe. Just don't want to give any high expectations with what we have done with the space hehe.

I am also looking at potentially having surgery in the near future (early March most likely) but with a short recovery time, I will be game for whatever.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

We are long overdue to host a KC home theater crawl too --- so maybe we can return the hosting favor this year. @jedimastergrant, 2015?
Sure I'm up for hosting along with the other regulars for a KC crawl. I would really like to see David's theater AGAIN! Best debut ever! But, I have to get it past the boss first.

Looks like we have enough interest to make a Des Moines HT Crawl happen!

So let's start the voting on two dates:

Saturday, February 21st
Saturday, March 28th

I could also do Sunday on those weekends as well if that works better.

Chances of that are slim, but I'll keep it in the back of my mind.

I hate to push it out, but I vote for March. But that is because I will be traveling to the great white north for work on Sunday, February 22nd and my wife would kill me if I was gone all weekend.

Haha nice one nick. I'm actually not either of those categories. I was using my wife's GS5 because it has a better camera than my nexus 5, so I'm not use to it and didn't even know how to turn the flash off while filming. Also I'm sick, so I just completely blanked and didn't think about it. I was too lazy to reshoot it.

Would love to include Brausch on the crawl...he has a really sweet theater as well. It was part of the crawl 2 years ago.
