Big BIG thank you to Ray & Yvonne for the fun meet and always generous hospitality. Hard to believe we were there for almost 11 hours (and probably could have gone on for a few more). I'm still recovering.

BTW, your JVC RS1 really did live up to the hype I've been seeing on these forums. Stellar picture, no matter what material we threw at it. Good move on your part for picking one up right away. Terrific value.

Thanx Again,
Sanjay

Ray,

Great party at your place last weekend. The image detail out of that JVC PJ is stunning. I enjoyed coming over and seeing the next level in "Home Theater Entertainment".

Well done!

Miss another event
LOL

My mom works for Sony, and she brought home a copy of "Starhawk BETA"
I quickly slipped it into my trusty PS3, and started playing.

Thank you Ray. That was another fun meet. Lots of great movie teasers - Johnny Appleseed, The Greece sampler video, even Tokyo Drift looked so good on your projector that I actually want to see it.

I wanted to ask you how long your hdmi cable run is, and if you were running through any repeaters/switches. The video, and particularly the color, always looked incredible.

Finally, I really should have took more photos, but here is one I snapped.. there was always something interesting going on so I never remembered to grab more photos..

Why is Jon pointing at Ray's head? Did it spin around or something?

I think it was from a comment along the lines of - "you wouldn't f- him up like that, would you? you don't roll like that do you?... Damn... you do roll like that"

I think they were either talking about what they were planning to do in order to get access to your music collection, or perhaps it was just a discussion of what desserts were going to be provided with lunch... I couldn't quite tell.

Dessert was good though

Hi Guy's,

I was wondering if anyone in the LA area has used Room EQ Wizard, or similar software to get readings on your rooms? I have been trying Room EQ Wizard and can't seem to get it to work.

I have coming in some GIK panels, and interested to see what they due to my room, would love to have before and after graphs.

Anyone want lend me a hand?

Thanks

Myself and a couple other forum members are thinking about putting together a listening session at my house on Sunday(6/10) afternoon.

We hope to have the following to listen to:
Usher Be-718 (berrylium tweeter)
KEF 201/2
Dali Helicon 300
JLA Fathom F112
Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1 (I also still have the CMT-340SE)

Nothing too formal, my livingroom is not large, but it is a pretty decent place to hear speakers. We'll probably have some pizza and beverages. Some of you have been here before.

Sorry I have nothing in the way of video to showoff.

Let me know if you are interested and I will get you all the necessary info.

I am in, are you still heading to South Coast? I am also very interested, as I have the JL F113, and am not very impressed, think it has more to do with my room than anything.

Not sure....the Pioneer store would not allow us to bring in a speaker to compare.

Possible wrinkle on Sunday.

I have just been informed that if my son's little league team wins tonight and Friday night, they will have a game on Sunday at 3pm....meaning I have to be there at 2pm.

So we may have to start late morning instead of early afternoon.....or after the game, which would be about 5:30pm.
