I won’t be able to make that date, but would’ve loved to experience your setup.

Kevin,
I would have invited you via PM being one of the old guard but didn't know how to contact you. I plan the usual kinda day with a bartender food etc. I would have gone into summer but we are having a family reunion here.

Working all weekend but your theater looks insane to say the least! Maybe next time, if there is a next time.

I like the idea of group viewable,or editable, to most people we know planning G2Gs, and then pin the main link to some google calendars, docs or sheets for organizing on the OP

I didn't intend to put this over anyone's meet just that we have so much going on and frequently the meets here end up being large enough that preparation is time consuming. I expect both Ken Whitcomb and Mark Seaton to be here to answer questions in detail about set up and calibration of both the Sony stacked projectors as well as the Trinnov Altitude Atmos set up.


I will start a separate thread if the numbers warrant it.

After talking to a few members where actuallty going to postpone the benq event since the event getting close and we still don't have a definite conformation from them yet. Your theater the hahn theater and the blands theater where on my list of theaters I've wanted to visit. We're thinking of carpooling to your place I'm thinking like 5 or 6 of us if that's ok.

That’s a good move Jeremy. Those BenQ guys weren’t easy to get on the phone. If I could at all, I’d make sure I was at Art’s place for this meet. Like you said, those theaters you mentioned are what we try to aspire to.

I’m in for a 4/28 gtg at Art’s, a short road trip
To see / hear state of the art HT is a great opportunity.

Hi Art,
I live in downtown Chicago, but I think Amtrak, which is literally a block from us, runs to your town of Battle Creek. I’d be interested in coming up to hear your Trinnov system with the JBL M2, which are an object of lust for me 😊. Probably just me (Stuart) unless I can get my wife to come.

Audio Gear: Trinnov Altitude 32 (24 channel), NAD M27 amps (3)
Video: JVC RS600, Seymour 100" UF Screen, Lumagen Radiance Pro 4444 (coming soon)
Speakers: PSB Imagine T3 LCR, Imagine T Wides/Side Surround 1, T2 Side Surrounds, Imagine XB rears, Image B6 screens, PSB CS1000 ceilings (6), HSU ULS-15 Mk 2 subs (4) - 13.4.6
HAA HT1 and HT2 Certification

Train station is about 8 minutes from my house, it's two blocks from my son's school.
