August 3 @ richidoo's
« on: June 29, 2013, 03:39:33 PM »
Please come to my G2G on Saturday, August 3rd!

Jazz and classical music listening will begin at 1PM. There will be no talking allowed until 3PM. After 3 the audiophile bullshitting may begin in earnest, so time your arrival according to your preferences. As always, bring some vinyl or files on flash that you would like to share. RCM available.

I might have the "Horn Free" boxes complete by then, but the speakers I am using now sound nice enough for partying.

New to my system since last year is the Samet i15 integrated amp, and the tuned up Clearaudio TT which is sounding very nice now.

I will need to borrow a CD spinner as mine croaked since last year.

OK, Who's in?!?!  :thumb:

I know! I was bummed to see the conflict, I was imagining coming up there, as I always do. I sincerely hope I can make it sometime.

But being practical (I hate that,) I will have driven 3000 miles between now and then, and I'm not sure the old minivan or the old fart driver could do another 1200 miles inside a month!

The good thing is that part of that 3000 is seeing you in MD.  :thumb:  Can't wait!

Rich -

toying with the thought of coming down. Maybe we can talk if we meet at CAF.

Great Steve!! The party's on!

Yeah, it's been a long drought for the Carolina gang.  Last meet was June 23, 2012! We'll make up for it.

I will try to attend.... have steroid and nerve blocking injections scheduled that week.... which are looking more and more likely I'm going to need to try as it's not getting much better anymore with just therapy.... the drugs are at least good stuff and mask the issue enough to start getting around more :) ... screwed up disks in your back are no fun :( .......

did finally temporarily clip and crimp together the crossover parts enough to play the Zephyrs, Rich....  best implementation of SEOS I've heard yet... which isn't saying a lot, I know... but these ones really aren't that bad, especially on the tube amps with the AMR DP-777 feeding them.... I pulled out a couple storage books of CDs that I hadn't played in years... it was likely a mistake, but Ryan loved going and swapping the CDs for me so I could spin disks for the first time in 10+ years it seems...  not sure how much of a mistake it was to let a 14 month old play with a $3K transport and put his hands on my disks.... but he loved being helpful so Daddy didn't have to struggle to get off the couch :)

I like the Eminence Definimax woofer much more than the Deltalite....  at lower volumes, even better than the AE TD12X as well....  I've got them tuned too low right now (26hz instead of high 30's... guess I have to cut the ports a bit) and the stock crossover parts are not ideal at all.... but Greg heard them yesterday and really liked them.... so proceeding forward with tweaking them to get them as good as I can before handing them off to him...

Hope you can make it Shane!

Thanks for the update. I'm glad Greg is happy with the sound so far. I'm sure you will corrupt his innocent newbie happiness soon enough.  ;)  Please invite him to the g2g if he is interested.

Alex Lok once said that kids make excellent remote volume controls, and he was right! Wives not so much.

Sorry Rich, I don't think I'll be able to make it.
Pictures of the event would be wonderful though!  :thumb:

Yeah, I live in the Boulder area and made the drive to the east coast a few times... not a lot of fun!

I will be seeing Thievery Corporation at Red Rocks on Aug 3rd!  :D

Is it already mid July?
Man sakes alive!
I'm in for the later half. I will save up extra audiophile bullshittery for the event. ;)
I really enjoy listening to music.
