It's time for another Speaker GTG in Iowa. The last two have been so much fun that its time for a 3rd. I have an amazing speaker lineup for everyone to come listen to great speakers and even talk to some of the most popular speaker manufacturers in the USA. Phil Bamberg, Mark Seaton & Jeff Permanian will all be attending the event!
This is going a great event to sit down and enjoy listening to an amazing set of speakers and not really a "shoot out." Attendees can bring their own material to listen to during "play time" on any speakers they desire. Food will be provided as long as people want to stay. :-)March 12th Update
- In addition to 3 speaker manufacturers, Steve Crabb from iRule will be attending the event to demo his home theater automation equipment & software. He will be helping me to get my custom control system up and running and will be available to answer any questions.

In addition to the Aurora 8, Roger will be presenting the Lynx Studio Technology Hilo Reference A/D D/A Converter System.

SVS Ultra Towers
This will mainly be an audio event centered around listening to music. For those who have been at my house before, I plan on changing things up a bit with the room and put the speakers so they face the long way of the room and not the short way. My room is 35' x 17' and normally the LP is at 15' and the space is limited for lots of people to be directly in front of the speakers. By going the long way we can pull the speakers away from the wall, open up the soundstage and put more people directly in front of the speakers. Pictures of my room can be found in the IA Meet thread. Details of the agenda are being finalized and will be announced later.
Toward the end of the event we can put the room back to normal and audition some home theater on the big screen.
My Equipment that could be used during the event:
Salk HT2-TL's & HTC2
Dual JTR Captivators S2 Subs
W4S STP-SE Preamp
W4S SX-1000 Monoblocks
CAPS Carbon Music Server - link below running JRiver
Mac Mini with Fusion Drive Music Server with Pure Music
Dual Mytek 192 DSD DACs- one DAC for LR & one for the dual S2's
