We are going to have a GTG at my place on Saturday June 1st starting at 3:00 PM.
My initial reason for having people over was to have some local AVS friends check out my new sub setup with 8 subs with Stereo Integrity 18" drivers and my JTR Noesis 212 speakers (left, right, and center).However, we are all very interested in experimenting with different amps when powering speakers and finding out if we can tell a difference between amps and also compare to my receiver.
We can do a demo of my system too, but I figure we should wait on the amp comparison first.
We are going to do this testing blind, so it should be interesting.
So far we have various class A/B, class D, class T and class H. I am hoping that someone will have a class A amp and/or a tube amp so that we can have at least one of each type. Here is what we have:
Class A/B - Crown XLS202 (Jonathan), Emotiva XPS-3 (Jonathan)
Class H - EP4000 (Kevin)
Class D - Inuke DSP3000 (Jonathan), Pioneer Elite AVR (Sheldon)
Class T - Lepai LP-2020A+ (Jonathan)
Also, Randy Bessinger is planning on bringing some type of switching device to make it quicker to switch from amp to amp.
Anyone in the KC area that is interested in coming please PM me, I've already sent out a number of group PM's and have the following members planning on attending:
Dave (non avs member but building DIY SEOS speakers)
Be aware that my hosting abilities are limited, I'm going to buy a bunch of beer but can't afford to supply food. Also... we tend to get loud at times with the volume, we won't do that until after the blind testing is over but just wanted to make that known.
