Hi folks, im curious if anyone would like to start a Bay area meet?

Yes. I have little knowledge/experience to offer, but would love to learn more about HT and check out other people's systems. Actually I'd be surprised if there isn't a group already in the area. This is the first time I started looking for a group, so timing of your post is quite amazing. I'm in S SJ.

sounds great. i think sharing ideas and knowledge is part of the fun of this hobby. i dont have a dedicated home theater room, but one of my living rooms is as close as i can make it for now. if you happen to come across another thread with info to a bay area meet, please pass it along to me. other wise hopefully we can get a couple more people here on board.

I'm game.

Would love to check out other systems, learn more about the things I cant afford lol...and exchange ideas.

bleair 08-21-2011 06:16 PM

I'd be game for a get together. When and where were you all thinking of?

67jason 08-25-2011 08:42 PM

Bumpity bump!!


Come on guys there has to be some interest in getting this off the ground.

I am in the willow glen area of san jose and would love to host a small get together any time. Hell wives and kids would even be welcome.

I dont have the most high end set up, but it is pleasing to all who have heard and seen it.

mits 65in dlp
denon 1611
polk monitor 70s, 60s cs2 and 2x psw505.
ps3
xbox
pioneer 101 disc juke-box cd player

I would love to compare my modest gear with some higher end stuff, and would really love to hear and see equipment at the next level in action in order to help me decide where I go next.

So lets get this thing going already!!

sorry guys i have been offline for a bit. im glad to see people have some interest in getting this going. im in for anything just keep me posted.

67jason 09-03-2011 03:42 PM

Sunday 09/18/11 12pm my place. PM me for the address and my cell phone number. I am in the Willow Glen area of San Jose.

Select adult beverages will be on hand, if you want something special bring it with you. Might do lunch as well, still gotta check with the wife on that one though. Stay until whenever.

I can have around 5-8 people over semi-comfortably, if more show then that is fine, we will just have to take turns being in the optimum seating/listening positions. Bring tunes and movies you may to check out on my set up. I am equipped to play dvd, bluray, cd, mp3/flac, and vinyl.

I have a fair amount of blu's including some reference discs so no worries if you don't wanna bring any with you.

bcms6 09-03-2011 09:09 PM

Sweet, I'm in

bcms6 09-09-2011 06:45 PM

Just burned a copy of Home Theater Demo Disk 2.0 and will bring it. Can you play BD-RE DL disks?

Thanks 67jason for having the HT met at your house. I like your set up with all Polk speakers and subwoofer's. Next met at my house.

+1. I especially enjoyed your 10Hz subs...

I bought the BD-R's for you guys and should have them ready by this weekend. You wouldn't believe how long it takes to erase and burn 50GB. I'll let you know when would be some good times to pick them up. I might make you listen to my setup for a few minutes, if you don't mind. Honest feedback appreciated.

bcms6,
I would like to see those GoldenEar speakers and listen to them also with your Anthem MRX300.

I am still amazed that my 505s had a measurable response at 10hz! Thats freakin awesome!

I enjoyed showing off my gear for you guys...sorry that you both were susceptible to the RBE of the mits. I am very pleased my lowly polks impressed you guys. I cant wait to check out the goldenears

Let me know when and where we meet up next.

jfeva0049 09-27-2011 09:32 AM

count me in for the next meet for sure....
