This Tuesday...

Would 3 or 4 of you Charlotteites like to get together for a little get together?

I have beer and speakers...

Speakers on display will be...

My Super Towers (modified), Taylo Reference II (stock), Taylo Monitors (modified)

Will probably start at 8, end around 11....

Thoughts?

    Tuesday?!? Beer on Tuesday?!? I may be willing to drive down, it'd give me a chance to check out your latest edition if you didn't mind.

    Well, I'm not from Charlotte, but will be traveling there for work this week and would be game, work permitting, if you don't mind an outsider?

    Just wanted to point out the Ed sub is not really being utilized very well... But you can definitely get a grasp for it

    Trey, what are you using as a pre for this?

    10-4, this one may be cutting it too close for me. We'll see but I don't think it would be in my best interest to come out there on a work night.

    Guys - I hate to say it... but I think my modified monitors for what is basically a $500.00 set of bookshelves may steal the show!

    They are maybe 75% of my super towers but DAMN do they sound huge. I have them cooking now and they are leaps and bounds over stock!

    Tom you need to be here!

    Oh, don't get your panties in a wad.

    A certain Dodd pre keeps following me and I can't shake away from it. :eek:

    See you ladies soon.

    I guess I'll make the drive down, but I'll leave a little early, I'd like to be home before 11. PM me with your address and phone number and I'll see you about 8!

    P.S. I wish we would have planned this sooner, if so I would have been able to bring you a quart of Wilkes counties finest! Maybe next time...

    Everything was a blast up until an amp went out!! Oh my!

    Trey - thanks for setting this up. It was fun to get to know the Charlotte Polk crew and, of course, to hear those Super Towers of yours - they are definitely a joy to listen to and a nice change from my SDA's.

    Very detailed with punchy bass and great instrument separation when compared to my SDA's. Overall, the words "resolution" and "weight" (in reference to the instruments) come to mind.

    Of course, I wouldn't mind getting my ears on them again, perhaps with some tunes I'm more familiar with, so let me know when that amp is back in commission (good luck with that, by the way).

    Thanks again to Trey, Tom, and Russ for the great hospitality, tunes, and advice (hey, I never said it was sober advice :)). I hope to catch up with all of you again in the future.
