    You didn't say that goats would be present.... I'm not allowed within 500 yards of goats...

    Or any farm animal for that matter...

    It is a well-known fact that farm animals prefer SDA speakers. Mine are living proof. :smiley:

    Well, I can bring my B&W CDM 1NT bookshelves again - if anyone else is interested.

    I don't have stands though - as I use wall mount brackets.
  • If people are interested, I can swing by and bring a pair of Revel Gem's and Revel M20's. Not sure whether I wanna bring the big SS ATI AT2000 along with them though but if anyone really wants to hear it I can heave it into my trunk.

    Bring them if you'd like. You can place them on the platform under the screen and get them about 8 feet apart.

    You are welcome to come and bring what you'd like. I have not heard any of those speakers.

    We may have to make a schedule so that we get through all of the gear people are bringing!....or just keep going until midnight. :smiley:

    Did I miss anyone?

    I'm going to have to miss out on this one guys. I'll bring an extra 12 pack next time to make up for it. It's work related and I'm bummed! Had so much to bring too.

    You can bring that 12 pack by my place... :D

    I am looking to have everyone to my place either the end of March or end of April.

    :D Keep me posted! I've been drooling over your mono's as well as the new Pass pre <3

    Hi everyone, can you respond and let me know you are "in" for the gathering? I will send out logistics, etc. via PM.

    OK, that makes it 3 plus myself at this point. Waiting to hear back from two others.

    This is when I'd recommend asexual reproduction. Ya gotta have at least 10 guys there to make it a sausage fest.
  • dpowelldpowell Posts: 2,676
    I guess not as much interest on the west coast as back east in this sort of thing. I think the most I've had at the house is 6 or 7 for previous gatherings.
  • DSkipDSkip Posts: 12,905
    I ususally get between 10 and 20 guys sporadically. Last time I had 30 show up. I was scared my house wasn't big enough. I had 10 people in my 14x12 listening room at one time.... Didn't know they could all squeeze in there.
  • nooshinjohnnooshinjohn Posts: 15,905
    My place is built to entertain. I can accommodate 15 comfortably in the living room, another dozen in the man cave, and overflow into the back yard for at least another 30.

    West Coast PF @ my place will be announced soon...
  • I'm in. I'm bringing some bookshelves. Is anyone bringing stands or does Doug have stands? I can provide my own but it's sort of a pain to lug around sand loaded stands.
  • dpowelldpowell Posts: 2,676
    Don't worry about stands. there is a shelf under my screen that when sitting is right at ear level. It's wide enough to space bookshelves 8 feet apart. glad you can make it!

    The Revel Gem's have a rear firing tweeter so I just want to make sure they have room to breathe and you guys get the best experience possible ;).

    Logistics information has gone out via PM to those who have confirmed. seabeerob213, if you end up being able to make it let me know and I'll send you the info.

    Got it. How much room do they need? The shelf is about 20 inches deep. We can also set them on a table.
  • The speakers are about 17" deep so they'll probably need a stand. I'll just bring the stands. It's not too big of a hassle.

    Good time today gents, it's always great to put real faces to screen names. I'm fairly certain we all suffered some hearing damage from the ACDC performance. Awesome gear to spin, next time I get to a gathering I'll bring my reference track, I'm sure it would have blown me away on all the setups we heard.
  • dpowelldpowell Posts: 2,676
    Cody, really glad you could make it over for the gathering! I agree, we heard some fantastic setups today. John's Carver statement monoblocks and Pass Labs pre are simply stunning and made Erik's B&W's, Will's Revel Gems and my 2.3TL's sound like entirely new speakers. I finally heard my speakers the way they were meant to sound. Upgrades are definitely in my future.

    It was a great group of guys, great music and an overall fantastic day.

    Nice setup. Are those John's DIY amps? I would be scared to move tube gear. :)

    No shoes allowed inside? I think I am going to implement that policy when I move to my Eastern Shore house. Hopefully, it will last more than a week.
  • dpowelldpowell Posts: 2,676
    Yes, those are his DIY amps. I can't describe how phenomenal they sound.

    It wasn't a shoes off policy for the guests but it seemed to trend that way. My family has a no 'barn' shoes in the house policy. :smile:

    Can we get some names with faces por favor...
  • codyc1arkcodyc1ark Posts: 2,539
    I'll add this, pictures cannot do those amps justice. It was an honor to me to see them in person. They sound much better than they look, if you would believe that. I'm surprised that they aren't doing an extended stay. ;) >:) ;)
