Meet at Art Sonneborn's Home April 28th
 
I think that there is enough interest to start a thread. I plan to have a meet at my home on Saturday April 28th. I will firm up the start time soon but expect mid afternoon start. There are some new things some relatively new ones.


For those who have been here lately I've added a second Sony 5000 projector to the mix to increase HDR performance primarily. This "stack" was set up by Ken Whitcomb. This is lighting up a 16' wide Stewart Vistascope screen.

I also have a full Atmos room with Harman JBL speakers including M2 mains with the Trinnov Altitude 32 processing. Recently I've also added two of Mark Seaton's new 18's to my four Submersives for some very impressive bass.


Anyway , if you are interested in attending let me know here or via PM and the names or AVS names of those coming with you. Wives and girl friends are welcome. I will limit the number at some point .


It will likely be real informal with demos and requests etc running.

It’s so awesome to see a theater of this caliber being offered as a GTG location. Thanks Art for doing this for us! Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend but hope to experience your setup in the future. I know everyone will have a great time!

Sorry to hear that you can't come.


For me though I only have meets around large upgrades. This gives folks who have been here more of a reason to attend again.


As we get closer I will request a more firm commitment so I can get the food and drink I need. Additionally demos will have to be run in shifts at first and just what I'll have ready will be determined by the numbers.

Gonna try to make this one if I can convince the wife. Will be quite a treat after seeing the big boys in Minneapolis the weekend prior.

Axel 03-25-2018 03:53 PM

Art;

Wow, these are (once again) very impressive upgrades.

I would love to join and potentially bring my wife.

Ron 03-26-2018 01:48 PM

Holy Crap, more bass?!?!! I'm so in!

Hoping to convince my son to come once, but my +1 will probably be Craig again... :)

sandbagger 03-27-2018 05:43 AM

Count me in I missed out on at least the last upgrade so its been a while

mushroommunk 03-27-2018 05:45 AM

Mentioned this in the main Michigan thread but putting here for your convenience too. Count me in. Your theater sounds like what we aspire to have ourselves.

It will be fun. Just let me know who you want to bring. The added light output in the projection is what you are going to notice I think. Hard to believe that 30fL looks dull in comparison

Hi Art. You can count me in as well. Thanks

I've had several big meets over the years great to get folks together who all get the reason I did what I did.

I'm interested. Depends if I can get a baby sitter or enough sleep (3rd shifter). Battle Creek isn't far from me at all, in the Jackson area.

Got it, you are in.

I'm getting close to the total that I'd like to limit it to so if anyone has a friend wife girlfriend etc please let me know. The big deal is if I set demo stuff I want everyone to see and hear and twenty or so in the theater at a time is about it. After that's done ,I just let it go to things folks want.

I used the banner at my May-2011 meet, and I saw it at a couple more after that 2013 ish...

Already mentioned on the other thread that I can come in for your GTG, just adding it here. I'll probably have maybe four hours between when Amtrak gets into Battle Creek and when I'd take off, so I probably would be around from about 4:30 to 8:00 pm.

Just me unless you want my 4 year old to come LOL...he IS HT friendly. Even went to a demo or two at AXPONA last year, as Mark Seaton might remember :) ....

Art Sonneborn 03-29-2018 04:28 AM

It will be great to see the old guard again as well as some new folks.


Art

Kevin4730 03-30-2018 11:21 AM

Hi Art,

Saw the talk in the main MI thread and finally made my way over to this one.

Hope there’s still room left. Looks like I don’t want to miss this!

Kevin
