This is a brother thread to the "I'll demo my subwoofer for other enthusiasts" thread started by Archaea here...

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1354149


Brilliant idea of getting AVS members in touch with each other and an easier way of hearing speakers, especially since most HT shops have closed down. Its getting harder and harder to listen to speakers before being bought and hopefully this will help a bit.


Before we get further a bit of warning. Everything in this thread should be kept vague. No addresses, no phone numbers, etc. Nothing too personal that the low brow of the net may take advantage of. In addition when setting up a meeting you should start with PM to the member who is local to you then follow up with phone conversations. Only after you feel comfortable having someone to your house should you give an address and time to meet. Once all precautions are met everyone should have a good time.


This will be a central database for speaker demos. I will keep the thread together and the first post updated minimum every day or two with new entries. The entries will be broken down into areas listed by U.S. states first followed by any other countries.


If everyone would keep to a certain format it would make it easier for all. We'll keep to the same format used in the subwoofer thread.

[City], [State] - speakers used in your setup - forum identity

(Extra speakers not used but can be hooked up)


Ie.

Murfreesboro, TN - Klipsch La Scala, Klipsch Kpt-100, Klipsch kpt-200 - Brandonnash (Athena AS-B1)


I'll make the first updates tonight.

Also, I want to add that this shouldn't be only about big expensive speaker systems and doesn't necessarily have to be surround sound. 2 channel, inexpensive, and DIY welcome and should post. Lots of people on here are budget minded so if you have a great sounding set of speakers that retail for $200 or less and don't mind someone hearing your system please post! All price points are welcome and encouraged!

All forgive me if you see your post with a bit of edit in the first post. Trying to keep the size of the first post down to allow for more member's speakers.
