Minneapolis 2020 GTG

So yea, we skipped right past 2019 so I thought I'd throw it out for 2020 for a get together. Any suggestions for dates? Currently I'm open the first half of the year the following Saturdays.
January 25th
Feb 29th
Mar 7th
April 18th & 25th
May 2nd

I should have access to a few projectors if I have enough notice beyond the two I currently have on the ceiling.

As I recall, someone else was trying to get a January calibration done with Gregg Loewen, depending on timing I may have him do mine as well (he and I have been chatting as well. funny thing is I sat in with Joel Silver last week but am not proficient enough nor have access to the tools easily.)

I also have a few screens for sale; 110" White 16x9, 110" ALR 16x9 and a 133" 2:35 ALR if someone was so inclined.


Anyone care to chime in and toss their opinion in?

I’m most likely in! I probably wouldn’t make it to the Jan. date, but others look good.

Not sure my setup is up to show quality yet, but if we need another spot on the map I’d be cool showing off my current setup.

LCR - 3x1299s - parasound a31
Surrounds - 4x volt 8s - Amp TBD trying to not buy the parasound A51...maybe something D class, debut haven’t tried that yet.
Ceiling - 2x volt 8s and 2x something the previous home owner put in the ceiling will be replaced with 2 MoRE volt 8s eventually - Emotiva XPA5
SVS PC ultra 13

Pj - benq ht3050
Turntable Rega P6

I’ll keep an eye on this. I’m definitely interested in coming up and touring some different theaters...

I'm moving in a week or so, time for a new theater challenge. The plus side maybe is smaller room to deal with.

Mar 7th and May 2nd work best for me. I could arrange a sitter for the other dates (except April 18th is a no-go for me).

I would be interested in making the drive up from Iowa. I'm currently looking at building a pair of DIYSG speakers so I'd love to get a chance to listen to a pair if possible. Am also interested in getting to demo a horn sub.

So my new projector should be arriving soon, of course Gregg left yesterday morning...

So what say you all, shall we actually make this a thing?

I think we need at least a month prior to gain some traction with people, who's in?
April 18th might work best for me, and I might be able to get some source toys for us to play with.

Time to chime in and make this a reality!
