Heck, bring her along!! This time of year in Carolina is just about perfection on Earth.

You know......   There is no traditional gift associated with 33rd wedding anniversary. This means you can give Carolyn a new turntable. She will love it! Let her open it at our meet!! haha


Happy anniversary Bill and Carolyn!!

Hi Stereo Nut Boys,
This is Carolyn, sorry I can't let Bill go to N. Carolina, he didn't want to tell you all this but He is doing something musical, We're going to see Jersey Boys. Actually, he was embarrassed to tell you. He really never does plays/musicals unless the musical is a concert which we've been to many in our 33 years of wedded bliss.  :duh
Carolyn
P.S. How far would Huntersville NC be as I have a friend you just moved there from Switzerland. Maybe he can make the next Stereo Nut boy convention. Thank you for putting him up & hopefully the snoring didn't overshadow your speakers.

Hi Carolyn, Congratulations you are the first "real live girl" post on AN! You're welcome to come hang out with us anytime. See I told you guys to behave!  :duh

I did have a couple new nail pops to fix in Bill's room after he slept in there, but I still don't believe he snores... naahhhh   My 7yo Henry's snoring drowned him out. haha

I've only lived here for 13 years so have no clue where Huntersville, NC is. But some of these NC lifers will know... Come visit anytime!!

Which is about 2 hours from most of the Stereo Nut Boys  :) - think we need T-shirts - although there is an asylum in Charlotte as well.

Rich et al,
I'm really going to try to make his one. I've been thinking that planars might be my next experiment, and I'd love to hear the Quads.  The Team CBC kickoff party is that day, so I may be late and pre-lubricated.  :D

Maybe I can join you and be the DD?  That way I'm SURE you'll make it.. ha.  Cool concept.

Not sure if you mean for the CBC party, or for the MS150, but each applies equally well

I am going to miss seeing you guys and hearing all of the great equipment this weekend.  I will certainly be thinking about the fun I am missing and will look forward to reading your reviews.

Have fun!

Brain cramp ... the CBC ride/party is Sunday and this is Saturday, so I am definitely in.  Rich, if it isn't too much swapping, I would like to bring over my Plinius to see what it can do with these.  No biggie if we don't end up using it.

THIS Saturday??? Oh shit!!

No just kidding... I'll be ready.... ( I hope!)

Sorry you can't make it Ken, we'll miss you.

Tim, I would love to hear a Plinius amp. It is direct coupled right?, and Carl's Mac is transformer coupled. I would love to hear the differences on two world class ss amps!!  :drool:

Sol has some new tweeks on his integrated amp, the I-60. BSP AUdio's Korato KTA-100 has had a signal path capacitor upgraded and bias adjusted and sounds really good!!   :drool:

The Quads are fully broken in now  :drool: The Snappers have new tubes almost broken in  :drool: They make a really nice combo with minimax pre out front.   I am putting the finishing touches on a brand new from scratch Feastrex single driver cabinet that is MUCH less resonant than previous attempts. No, it is not wood. I will be playing it and tweaking it tomorrow and Sat morning. We'll see how it sounds for round 3.... [-o<  No room treatment, the Quads don't really need it. Cone speakers may fair less good than last meet.

I'm lookin forward to seeing everyone, and having a great time at the Stereo Nut Boy Quad Festival.

Cool... Just to add to the dizzying array of geardom... I've asked Brandon to bring his Cary preamp.  I'm very interested in hearing it, especially compared to the Mac and/or Minimax.  Maybe we can get there eariler and do a quickie comparo?  This is mostly a self-serving comparison for me.. ;)
