SE MI GTG March 10th

Thanks to @mtbdudex we here in SE Mi are in for a treat. BenQ has reached out to us for a demo of their new 3000 lumen 4K projector, the TK800. As well as their ht2550 model. We have been talking about it over in the Official mi gtg thread, so make your way over here and we will continue the discussion. Please post if you think you can make it. I’ll start a guest list. One of which is a reviewer from Avs. I hope he finds this thread. Also a YouTube reviewer will be here. So I’m hosting and many of you have been here before. I have done a few improvements to my theater, so there is something new to see here too.

So far we have:

Just found out why that date sounded so familiar - going to a concert that evening... depending on the start time I may not be able to make the event

Being a BenQ fan (HT2050 owner) I’m gonna remain hopeful

Likewise I'm sure!

Sometimes my GF likes to attend these, may I bring a +1 if she'd like to come?

I'm definitely in for this one. Had to quickly talk my girlfriend into celebrating her birthday on a different weekend though so do you think BenQ will cover some roses for me too?

Never mind the dust on the cone. The shipping peanuts turned to dust. Didn’t have time for the vac to come out.

She is a good woman. I’d never try to deceive her. She just doesn’t really ask, and I don’t really tell. Letting me host these kinda events and all, I’m pretty lucky.

And you just happen to not ask about the few extra bottles of wine or new shoes that show up right?

I’m lucky there too. She doesn’t really bring much stuff home. And we both drink wine.

Bad news. BenQ contacted me and needs to change the date. They are waiting on a firmware update to come out. I’m not sure why that firmware is critical to our planned date but they gave me no choice. I think they are shooting for a date in April. I may not be able to host at that point. So Jeremy volunteered. He’s near flint so please comment if you would be willing to make the trip up there for this demo.
On another note, I am still willing to have the gtg on March 10. I know some of you have changed plans to fit it in. I’d be happy to show my upgrades and just hang with the group. Please let me know if your in for that too. Sorry about these changes. It’s always better when things work out as planned the first time. But this is how it goes! Thanks guys.

Cool Jeremy. Thanks for stepping up. I’ll keep my date for anyone interested. Couple things new in my room
Painted trim and walls
Upgraded front 4 subs to hst’s
Upgraded nearfield setup to ds4’s (2)
Still working on velvet on my ceiling tile. I should have another row at least done.
Lowered side surrounds
Added 2 30 amp circuits to my amp room for a total of 3 dedicated circuits. 2 30, 1 20.

I don’t think I confirmed before, but I’ll be around Warren earlier in the day on the 10th. So, I’m in to hangout still.
