You know what I totally forgot. I will post some of the footage when I get a chance.

I plan on being there for the whole weekend, so a Saturday afternoon GTG would be great.

Looks like fun, but it said "dealers only" on the registration page.

Thanks! I'm working on it.

There are quite a few out there like that. Kinda reminds me of the Lenard K4 design which is a bit more 'modern'.

http://lenardaudio.com/k4_pro.html



Would go for something like that with a few serious modifications.

Prince -- R.I.P. I know I'm dating myself but I actually saw his movie "Purple Rain" during its theatrical release. And I have at least 3 of his albums. (And I mean literally "albums" those round black things with grooves on them. From back in the day...). Which I haven't listened to in years. Which I'll also make up for tonight.

Didn't see your post until just now. I live right by you in Valley Glen at Woodman / Vanowen.

Would love to see your system some time.

Hi,

Anyone remember me? Old guy, gray....always talking rarely buying - no food host (yeah I learned). LOL.

I have been out of the loop and meets and I hope to re-engage. Been a year plus of crazy - I was retired and everything got far busier than the previous years.

But.....I am starting to get active again, and I bought a new rec-room TV yesterday. Ray, if you are interested....I will be contacting you about calibration.

Also, I finally got the kids out of the house and I have my Guest-room Home Theater room to work with. Ray helped advise some prep work and I hope to do....a very mild Theater. Mike provided screen material, my wife a good chair and I hope to go used/cheap but still get something fun.

I do have to say my personal Cinemark XD at theater at Playa Vista is hard to beat. Weekdays, no crowds 65' screen, a gazillion watts....hard to beat. But hopefully I will have something worth talking about.

Finally, I will have a Ray calibrated Kuro monitor, 60" surplus. One of my kids dropped the plasma I bought for her and wants this one. But who in their right mind gives a Kuro to a kid who drops TVs. Seriously. If anyone is interested let me know, maybe someone has a soft spot for it. I would be reasonable and warranty it - pro rate kinda thing. But if its no longer worth much....the daughter gets it. Message me if interested.

Later....Steve

The Display Steve is referring to, is a Pioneer KRP-600 60" Panel if I remember correctly.
Great looking display.

Hi Ray,

Yes, exactly. And still as good a picture as when you calibrated it. It probably has dimmed but No One does not notice the quality of the image. Soooo few ever see a calibrated set (or those blacks). Still keeping the other one.

Where I got the new TV, they gave me the "you don't need calibration - its done in the factory". LOL. I cut him off at that.

I will get the new one today and begin break in if there is such a thing for this. Its a Sony XBR75X940D.

Steve

Has AMC taken down its Prime theater? I don't see the option to filter for it anymore on their site.

I ended up going at 1pm for the IMAX 3D showing, not as packed as I thought it would be so that was certainly a nice surprise since I got there at like 12:30 but was able to still get good seats.

fellas,

this week I'm upgrading to Atmos...( I'm having the wiring for 4 ceiling speakers today, and my yamaha 3050 arrives Thursday ). Friday, I'm taking the day off work, just to have a nice long weekend and setup up the new AVR / enjoy it all.

Anyhow, I guess I'm in upgrade mode , because I have also started to get really curious about Crowson actuators/transducers. Is there anyone here in O.C or in LA who has these installed and might be open to me stopping by for a quick demo, sometime?

Thanks,

I haven't been in a rush to sell them so they may be around awhile longer. I'm hoping someone buys them locally so I don't have to ship them and maybe eventually get to hear them at some point. All new parts still in boxes but the bass cabinets will have to be diy'd.

For those that are going, what days are you attending the T.H.E. Show Newport?

I guess it is a different hotel this year.

It's at the same hotel as last year, the Hotel Irvine. I'll be getting in late Friday night, so I'll have all day Saturday to see the sights and hear the sounds, and then Sunday morning to catch anything I couldn't get to on Saturday.
