G2G at Rich's 8/25
« on: August 01, 2007, 05:11:55 PM »
On the menu this time are speaker cables: JPS Superconductor 3, Reality SCs, Harmonic Technologies Pro9+, possibly Grover S Biwire SCs, and maybe some other strange and rare examples of the art.

bigfish8 might be convinced to bring his still-wet-paint SP Tech Timepiece 2.1 speakers over. He is a great sport, so it will be fun to meet Ken, live and in person!

We will have an informal discussion on the pros and cons of starting a "Triangle Audio Society." All opinions are welcome for clarity and sanity check before embarking on such an ambitious endeavor. SteveB and I have been mulling it over for a few months. Time for some real world feedback.

I don't know if the SAS Audio Labs 11A preamp will be in town by then (or still be here?) but that would certainly be a great feature, considering it is said to be one of the best preamps out there. Local audiophiles would get a chance to hear it in person without the fuss, and Steve Sammet would probably appreciate that opportunity as much as the listeners, so it might be a good thing to pursue.

Also playing will be AP850 patio speakers by outdoorspeakerdepot.com and Audiosource 200 amplifier, connected with 60 feet of the cheapest, unshielded 16ga copper speaker wire available. Not too bad considering the loud frogs and bugs for background noise....

And whatever else anyone wants to bring for show and tell ;)

Food served. We start around 5pm.
See you then! Thanks.
Rich

I'll be interested in your cable comparison.  I run the Pro 9's and have had absolutely no desire to change since I bought them. 

Enjoy!

Looks like I'll be there soon... Just spoke to Brandon... he'll be there as well.
I'm bringing Scott Nixon's new DAC for all to hear... trying to find my digital cables now... It can take coax, toslink, or USB... neato.

I'm not sure if Ken's bringing his Reality SC's... I have a pair and some jumpers... We don't both need to bring them, though...

Looking forward to it!!! :) :)

PS, I'm bringing a camera as well...

Carl:

I can bring the Reality SCs but Rich indicated you were bringing yours.  Please let me know and I will be glad to bring them.  Timepieces and stands are already in the car.

It'd be great if you could bring them... and jumpers if you have them... I can bring mine otherwise.

Carl:

I have the cables ready to take to the car so I will bring them.  The only jumpers I have are the ones that came with the Timepieces and of course they will be on the speakers. 

Looking forward to meeting you and eveyone else.

Rich,

Once again, thank you for your great hospitality :D!!!!

It was good to see the familiar faces, as well as meeting some new ones.

Mine eyelids are about to slam shut...I'll report my impressions later this morning.

Rich:

I just moved the Timepieces from the car back into their home.  I really want to thank you for inviting me and for the food/hospitality.  It was great meeting all the guys.  I had an ear opening experience as to how important gear and cables are to maximizing the potential of speakers.  My system has a lot of up-side potential and I will enjoy the refinement process!

Thanks again and I hope to have the opportunity to participate with you and guys again.

Ken
