Lone Star Audio Fest 2017 - May 5, 6, 7

Starting the thread now since we are mere months away. I just booked two different rooms for this year and hope to not only represent my business but also Polk. My first room is expected to consist of the Usher Be-10, Dayens monoblocks and preamplifier, Marantz source, and Wireworld cabling. My second room will be dedicated to Polk - the Signature Series and Magnifi Mini - and will also include the Dayens Ampino integrated, iFi Stereo 50, and Marantz sources and Wireworld cabling. This will be 'real-world' pricing with the most expensive system likely not exceeding $2500.

I do have an extra bed if someone wants to help cover the cost of a room with me, but the catch is that I have to have access to the main room at all times and use some of the bedroom for boxes and such. The perk is you would be on the main floor of the show.

Come see us dudes! Always a good time is had and many friendships are kindled here. This is a retreat studded in audiophilia.

    @DSkip

    I am going to try and see if I can make it happen this year.

    If thats the case, I "may" be interested in the extra bed to help save costs (since I will have to fly in)....

    Let me do some talking and budgeting and get back to you.

    Sold! See y'all there. Anyone debating or on the fence.....it's a good old grass roots GTG. Met a bunch of good folks (except Marvin) and good times were had by all.

    In with 43, great karma!

    I'll be there again unless something happens to keep me from going! It has become my favorite holiday :)

    Marvin - you should have done that last year!

    I'll stop in. Not sure I will stay overnight or just for the day. Will have to wait until closer to figure out what is going on.

    Reservations made and looking forward to seeing everyone again, plus seeing some new faces. The system I'll be using this year won't be as good as Ron's from last year, but it'll be pretty darn good :)

    I'm hoping to give it a run for the money in my main room.

    I influenced the influencer. Glad you can make it! I hear you are digging the Amphions. They are still on my radar and likely my next speaker pickup after I solidify my Rosso lineup.

    That influencer is going to hopefully help me sway my significant other so I can attend myself.
