Got it. Let me know her name for a name tag. I'm going to be asking everyone the same later anyway. I think I'm going to close the open invitations today. I still have a few of the old guard that have unanswered PMs that I will leave open.

Thanks for posting here for me Dave.


I'm going to close the open invitations. If those on the list already have a friend or wife let me know.

It would be just me, no guests. I'll just have to find a babysitter for my 11 year old lol. I'd bring him but he'd just complain unless you let him play videogames on it.

Other: I’m one of the admin’s for Facebook HTE group https://m.facebook.com/groups/347411508628627, so I’ll be doing a write up there afterwards.


A few guys attending are members at HTE also, so I’d like permission to post a few pictures there afterwards. The HTE admins are mostly AVS people, Shawn B of Erksine among us.
I'm on there too but I don't pay attention to it very often. BTW we met at Nick's as few years back. That was nice.

Just wanted to reiterate that in about a week I'm going to ask for firm commitments from those on the list. As I said , anyone on the list who wants to bring a buddy or wife etc that would be great.

I've gotten some offers for food and everything is welcome but nothing required. We will be sure there is enough so that no one who wants to stay all day will feel like they need to go grab a bit someplace.

Right now the list is evenly made up of folks who have never been to a meet here and those who have.

It should be a great time !

I just want everyone to know that I'm going to start the meet at 3:00 and it will end at 11:00. At the beginning I'm going to have a set demo likely three sessions perhaps half an hour each. After that it's open to listen to or watch what folks want by request.


My request is to not come early since we will still be getting food ready, setting up the bar, as well as getting showers etc.


I hate to have a specific end time but I'm no spring chicken so frankly, by then ,including getting everything prepared, I'll be ready for bed.


I will PM folks with my address and phone:


I think it's going to be a great time !

I'm not delusional but I thought when I said "guys I'm going to go to bed" that that might have signaled that it was time to call it a night but.....

On the first page please note the names with an asterisk. These are those who have confirmed they definitely will attend. I might have missed some so please let me know. Some have said they needed to check with wives ,baby sitters , flights etc.

As expected, I'm getting a few folks who have PMed me who have been to meets here before but are a little less visible on AVS than times past so they have been added after the cut off.

Thanks all !

Damn, I would LOVE to see the dual 5000's setup. Unfortunately, that is one of my travel days where I fly home that night and right back out the next day. I'm actually headed down to work on @bgarcia Thor with Barco. Would have been great to see the two different systems back to back.

It’s with a good bit of regret I must relinquish my spot in line to attend this one. I really want to see your theater Art, but I have too much going on over the course of the next few weekends and I’ll be sacrificing too much family time to squeeze this one in unfortunately.

My family is all in the Lansing & Detroit area, and I pretty much have every mile of I-94 memorized from the thousands of miles of commuting I’ve done over the years. We go to Michigan (too) often, actually.

I’ll miss seeing the Detroit (and Toronto) guys again as well. However, I am going to the Minneapolis HT Crawl this weekend, so it isn’t like I won’t be getting my fill of this crazy wonderful hobby of ours.

There needs to be ample pictures and video so I can experience it vicariously!

I understand, preparing for the meet is taking all I've got . We have construction in the house that was supposed to take 3 to 4 weeks so I scheduled the meet 13 weeks out and we aren't done with the construction at 12 weeks !!!!

I'm pretty used to crazy busy with all the children my work etc but too much I get.

Hey Pete!

Oh, bring the HEMI banner with you! I think you were the last one to have it?

And hopefully the weather's good (and over 50) so you can see the Hemi I have now...

Art, What playback sources do you have for you HT? Can you play a .mkv file from a USB stick (with full lossless HD audio) or are you only disc and streaming based?

I actually don't know. I know that the Samsung player and I think the OPPO have USB but except for firmware I've never used it.

I had planned only one music demo and it's older. The rest though is your call after the first run through. I had planned more Atmos and HDR stuff for the demos, although this is still in flux.

Having two projectors and the 5000 is notorious for slow input sync times switching inputs with a room full of people waiting is already got my nerves on edge.

Art what player do you have I know the OPPO does mkv files via usb. I actually have a full usb stick full of demo material from visual to bass demos to surround demos. I can bring it if you want me to.

I have the Oppo 203 and the Panasonic as well as the Samsung. If you want to bring software that's fine. I just plan to have set demo time at the beginning then it's open.

As of now I have two demos through the Kaleidescape Premiere ,one through the Kaleidescape Strato and two through the Panasonic.

Since HDR presentation ,particularly with projection ,doesn't have any real standards I'm only optimized for HDR ( in my estimation) with the Panasonic player. That may change by show time but keep that in mind.
