Mike - You raise a number of good points.

1) content - Let me hit up Mark and Jeff to pick their brains for some interesting content. I know Mark played a few tracks for us at the October GTG that had showcased some amazing dynamics.
2) Listening levels - I would be OK varying the volume as long as we level match of course and each setup gets played at similar volume levels - at least for the 'normal' audition part of the event. smile.gif
3) Setup - We actually haven't discussed setup for a while. I second the notion for running a basic 1 position Audyssey run to set distance and levels. We can definitely take some sweeps during setup as well. I'm not sure how much time we will have for tweaking manual eq, but we can give it a shot on Friday night to see how much time we're sucking up.
4) Food - Yes there are plenty of places nearby for takeout, but I was wondering if anyone had particular grilling skills they would be willing to offer. We've got the patio outside and we could do some serious BBQ'ing of our own if we had someone interested in playing chef. smile.gif
5) Beer king - I have no doubt you will come well equipped, I know how you roll. biggrin.gif

You must have hit your head when you did that mud dive, because I don't recall anything like that.

I know this GTG is already at capacity. However I really need to attend this get together, I'm currently selling my three GR-Research LS9 arrays albeit with a heavy heart.

I'm looking to replace them in a dedicated theater room with either Noesis, catalyst 12Cs, or Danley SH50s, however I have heard none of these speakers and have been able to find no one to demo the speakers for me.

I am in the craft beer industry and will bring multiple cases of some fantastic beers if I can get in. An example of what I sell, Bells, Founders, troegs, alesmith, green flash, southern tier, dark horse, bear republic, lagunitas, epic and on and on.

So yes I can supply some goodies. Please let me know if its possible for me to attend.

Thanks!!

Guys - As much as I'd love to open up the flood gates, we're going to have to stick to the list. We currently have 25 attendees and a dozen or so large or larger speaker setups that will take up a room of their own. With the current list we will already be hard pressed to make sure everyone gets a chance to sit in the "sweet spots" for a few tracks.

With that said, if there is anyone on the list that cannot make it, please let me know asap so that I can let the others who have posted in this thread know a spot is available.

LOL - I'm sure it's true I had a few too many. Far too many delicious choices.

Forget all that though - that Flower Power from Ithaca is the REAL DEAL. Honestly bring me 2 cases of it, I will pay for it. biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

I guess I will be the responsible one and be the designated(sober) person at this event tongue.gif. Someone has to be the responsible one biggrin.gif. One too many and the remote will end up in my hands. Although, come to think of it, that probably wouldn't make much of a difference anyway.

We called ours slip n bleed and eventually made it to the point where we also doing tow-ins (not TOE-ins haha)

I imagine the barrel pairs well with such a device. biggrin.gif

Speaking of beer, I'm going to search this weekend to find some of this Flower power. I may have a local source!

Wait a minute. Is this a beer tasting or a speaker demo event? biggrin.gif
