I haven't been around in a while, but I wanted to make sure everyone here was aware that Paul Carmody (Undefinition) is organizing a DIY Chicago 2011. It will be October 29, 2011 at the Hyatt Regency Woodfield - Schaumburg.
It is going to be a show & tell format with like 30 speakers being demoed. There will be door prizes, including a complete Zaph ZA5.2 kit w/ cabinets donated by Madisound.
Yeah. Life and work got busy and I don't have enough time to keep up every forum any more. I still browse and try to contribute where I can add something based on first hand knowledge, but other than that...
Hopefully, there are some people from AVS that can make it out to DIY Chicago. I'm really happy with the speakers that I'm going to be demo'ing especially at a price of $160/pr. I've also heard the Ansonica speakers that CJD is going to be demoing - very nice! I haven't heard the others, but there will definitely be some winners and worth listening too.
I'm going to try and make it down. I have a lot other things going on that day, but I hope I can sneak away.
No worries. If you can only show up for an hour or so, not a big deal. It is pretty informal. People will be moving in and out of the listening room all day. I don't think Paul has put together a formal schedule yet. But you might want to check the PE site the day or so before. Paul might post a schedule and you can plan your time around what you want to hear.
