The show must/will go on! Late this morning the evacuation orders were lifted. I returned home this afternoon. I can't say enough about the fire department. They did a masterful job protecting the homes in the community. As you will see on your way to my house, flames reached many property lines but got no further! The fire department is still patrolling the neighborhood and dealing with smoldering brush. There is also an active firefight still going on just a few hills away. I thank God for protecting us and our property. I did not hesitate to leave all material possessions behind.

We will make it easy by having Pizza and finger foods. Bring beer if you want beer (I don't drink). I have about 10 Coronas leftover from the last GTG.

Football will be on along with the food downstairs. Upstairs I will play music and movie clips. Feel free to bring your own music (not bass music and not Justin Beiber).

I made some adjustments to the room and can fit 15-16 with 10 seated on barstools. It should be a good opportunity to how Room Perfect and Mirage Omnipolar technologies perform at suboptimal listening positions.

I want to play recorded music played by musicians and not electronically generated music. I'd like to sample your favorite tracks from all genres. From the lowest organ music to chest pounding Rock. This is a track from the PMC playlist at CEDIA I really liked.

I'm a big NIN fan if you get a chance check these songs out:

Copy of A (hesitation marks album)

Into the void (fragile album)


Closer (the downward spiral album)

Enjoy.

Have three Infinity Primus P163 and three P153 bookshelf speakers as well as three Kef Q9c speakers. (Yes, I like identical L/C/R speakers.)

The P163’s look interesting. Would ya sell 2 of them??

They’re gonna be used in a 2ch music rig, powered by a small tube amp. Ideally I’m looking for something that digs down a little deeper and is a little more efficient.
