The dealer should not have asked for more than 50% and should have been more honest with you about delivery dates, or Kef should have been more honest with the dealer.

One thing about the Brits, they're not exactly known for their efficiency.

Yeah Aaron- they actually did only request 50% but I had my bonus in place and wanted it done and not spend on a new amp or something (the other 50%). Decided to go a head and pay in full and be done. Not the best move on my part but that was never a concern. The delivery dates are...

Get-Together

Okay Guys,

I'd like to move the GTG back to the middle of April.

A few reasons:
1) Virginia's spring absolutely explodes about the middle of April. Even though we generally get spring-like weather middle of March, April in Virginia is something to experience. (the azaleas, the Dogwoods, etc., etc.)
2) I've been inundated with orders, but I'm falling behind a bit because of our below normal cold. My heat in the shop can't keep up, so there are certain processes I just won't do unless it's a certain temperature.
3) Typically, I take the big plasma out of the room after the Super Bowl, but this year it looks like UVA (ranked #2 ) is going to be in the mix for March Madness.
4) It gives everybody a bit more time to plan.
5) I should have a pair of C2's by then and have the proper time to get them placed properly and their spot marked on the floor. (Of course, the S25's will be there.)
6) I might have my sense of humor back by then..LOL.

Your thoughts,

Aaron

If you want to hump your speakers down, that's fine. But no electronics.

GTG- The Electronics

Hey guys,

This will be the electronic equipment at the GTG.

Dac; Ayre QB-9 ($3K)

Preamp: Dave Belles' VT-01 ($5.5K.) It's a hybrid tube-amp, but yet still allows me to tailor the sound by swapping tubes. (I lean towards the Siemens). http://www.powermodules.com/vt-01.html

Amps: A pair of MB-200 mono blocks ($8.5K). It's a true high-current amp that outputs 400W into 4 ohms. It will output 800W into 2 ohms. http://www.powermodules.com/mb-200.html

Borderdog,

Yeah, yeah; how about the Whisky line-up? I'm partial to Aberlour and Woodford.

CD,

As far as hard liquor, you guys will have to bring your own. I've not had a hard liquor drink in probably 30+ years...it got me into too much trouble. In fact beer gets me into too much trouble...LOL.
In fact, I probably won't be drinking at all for that GTG. I will supply some good ales and some good pilsners, but after a certain point, you all might have to chip in.

I will also supply a lot of appetizers and food.

Aaron

I don't know what Johnny Blue is, but would love to see you attend.
Do you have some Belles gear?

Aaron

Johnnie Walker Blue label. Best scotch whisky I've had. Smooth as hell. Unfortunately, Belles and the Blue are both out of reach of my wallet.

Just some levity Dog. Some food and a beer is one thing; but I don't think anyone is coming to this thing, to get hammered...lol. I just want room, to set up a pair of speakers. What fun is it, to just come listen to your system...without a little friendly, "competition"
