Nope. Just a small room. 12.5x9.5x8f. Click on my link to get a better idea. Fantastic sound, small picture.

BTW a bit too excited to sleep if you can't tell from my 4:50 AM posting. Going to be a long day. biggrin.gif

Andrew, Thank you. If you don't mind I'll bring the Ascend Sierras. Should be interesting to hear them in a different environment. Planning to arrive 10 - 15 minutes prior to 9 AM so I can unpack the speakers. looking forward to tomorrow.

You guys are in for a real treat tomorrow for lunch... I am making a Guinness Oxtail beef stew that will likely be stuff of legend... just sayin' .. it has been slow cooking for 12 hours now, and will have about another 12 hours before we have lunch smile.gif

A pic of about 70% of the ingredients:


After about 11 hours of being slow-cooked:


After adding a few bottles of Guinness smile.gif :

You guys are lucky. I am watching my son today (and having my ceiling painted). Would certainly be fun to be @ your Speaker Shootout.

If you are taking requests would love to get a perspective on music between the 212 and the 228. Sounds like the day will be a blast!

Man I really wish there was going to be the Noesis 228HT's there too, I'd love to read how they would compare to some of the other speakers that will be there..

Some times I really wish I lived on the East Coast so I could easily attend an EPIC event like this!! mad.gif
