NY Audio Rave Saturday, May 20th in Staten Island around 1pm
« on: April 25, 2017, 11:30:37 AM »
Alright Guys, I think it's time to have a good old Rave like the old days!
People from NY Audio Syndrome are welcome to come.

We'll listen to some vinyl first, then compare my PS Audio DirectStream DAC and Memory transport to Aqua Hi-Fi Dac's and transport supplied by Charles (Rollo). Thanks Charles! The Aqua gear suppose to be top-notch!

My set-up is pretty good at revealing small differences in equipment.
You can see my set-up on Audiogon under snopro.

Food will be provided, if you want you can bring desserts and libations.
Please let me know who will be coming, so I have enough food.

If you don't mind please take off your shoes, you can bring slippers if you want.

Should be a fun GTG,
Joe

WOW, I almost missed this one, Joe, all because of Levi's posting, bragging over his $25K bike :duh.  It's because we're not so active here anymore, and Levi's posting hides your posting.  So, I was wondering, he kept talking about your good food.... and I wondered what the heck he was taking about, what I missed...., and I went into our MAIN page.... and found out about this one.  

SXXXT!  May 20!  We will be having a farewell party. in Massapequa, for a friend who's moving to San Fran also.  Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Sigh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I can't come, not the way these 2 places are separated.  Also, I promised to drive a friend to that party also.....

Have fun, guys!!!!!!!!! :thumb:

Levi, let me ride on your $25K limo next time to a rave? :rofl:

Hi Joe, thanks for doing this!
I'd love to attend, I always enjoy your systems, but it depends on the weather and how far along I get with pulling the motor from my car. If it's raining, or the motor is already out, I'll be there for sure. If it's okay, I'll give you a firm commitment a little later in the week.

Best, Barry

No problem Barry, I hope you can make it! I moved, I'm right over the outerbridge. Very easy to get to from NJ. 
I'll pm my address, if you are coming.

Hey Joe,
Thanks for the invite... Please PM me your address...

I plan on attending but I need to participate in a "Best Buddies" walk that morning. My youngest daughter is the local president of the "Best Buddies" chapter so I need to support her & others...

Cheers,

i think thats how he changes the oil on the motor :thumb:
instead of bending down to reach for that oil drain plug, just lift the motor, no bending
makes for an easy oil change
System consists of an amp a preamp, 2 speakers a turntable and a phono preamp, Also some cables and power cords and a really cheap cd player.

Joe,

Would love to attend but going up to Massachusetts for a friend's wedding. Please let me know the next time you have a gathering. Your system is always worth a listen and the food  :drool:

  Hey Joe will be there. Aqua Formula DAC with Vida transport. Joe do you have two of the same digital cables and IC's to compare DAC's. I use TWL IC's. Can use SPDIF however the I2S connection is a added benefit of using the Aqua DAC.

Hi Charles,

We can use my HFC Ultimate ic's to keep it the same, but bring Pete's we can try them later.
If you can bring a digi-buss and 2 of Pete's digital PC's that would be great. I have a extra 7+ to plug the digi-buss into my Purepower conditioner. This will keep all cables the same, except the digital cable.

What type of cable do you use for I2S. I have an extra WireWorld HDMI that I use as the IS2  between my DAC and Transport.

Deepak, got you. Anybody else coming! Please let me know, so I can order enough food!
