Does anyone know how we could get the Bryston BDA-1 to this GTG?  I'd really like to hear it.

BTW, I have an Eastern Electric phono preamp and a TT I wouldn't mind bringing if anyone wants to spin vinyl...

I would love to hear BDA-1 also. Audio Advice sells Bryston, and you are a legit customer of theirs. They have an official home trial program, you sign stuff out on Friday return it on Monday. Maybe they have one? The very first units are trickling out now, not sure the pipeline is full yet.  I've been excommunicated from Audio Advice for bugging too much without buying anything. No more free love for me.  The new Bryston BCD-1 is probably every bit as good, if not better, maybe they have that in stock for home demo?  It's been out for a while.

Steve bring whatever you want man! Bring it all if you want to compare stuff. I would love to hear any/all of your gear. Starting earlier will hopefully allow more gear to get airtime.

I am just finishing building a new Transcendent Sound Grounded Grid preamp today.

Working on some acoustic treatments. Maybe actually finish some of it this time.

Great, Den. We might not get to the amp since we have 5-6 amps booked already and might not even get to all of those. But I'm sure the Benchmark DAC would be a fun audition for everybody considering the other fine digital sources coming.

So far this is what might be coming:
Modwright Transporter
Benchmark DAC
Raysonic CD168 CDP
R.E. Designs LNPA-150 ss amplifiers courtesy mgalusha
ARC VT100mk3 ?
ARC Ref1 ?
Plinius Integrated 
Transcendent Sound Grounded Grid Preamp
Sol Samet I-30

That should keep us very busy. Let's save the vinyl for Carl's room because my joist floor is not braced yet. Every step is a skip.

I doubt we'll have time to get into vinyl but I'll bring the EE Mini pre just in case.  I'm not using mine at the moment.. I'm amassing loads of stuff to put into a new room... Maybe we could setup a second room? How's that for freakin' you out, Rich? ;) 

We really need to have these things more regularly.  We have good enthusiasm in our group and more gear than we can ever hear in a day.  I'd say there really isn't enough time to do more than 3 or 4 'real' comparisons at a meet.  Anyone else willing to host?
