    boys, this is going to be fun! heard the new speakers last night. think balanced, timbre correct, textured (detail), non fatiguing, and just plain ole joy to listen to.
    can't wait.

    Can I pull a Babe and point my remote like I'm calling a home run? These speakers are going to create some serious buzz. If you aren't coming, you're missing out.

    Less than two weeks out of surgery with a wired together pelvis makes this one impossible but would love to come hear some of your gear and bring speaker stands another time. Hope you have a great show.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Somebody go pick up Steve. We can wheel his busted arse around. We'll do hot laps around the hotel with him. Bring painkillers.

    Wheeling around is not the issue brother. Getting on and off the crapper is the problem. I need a handicap stall equiped with a trapeese at this point. No painkillers.

    I was going to bring a couple gallons of my grandads corn/barley recipe pain killer. Fresh made in the old school method

    You're doing it all wrong
    You need to move the TV in to the crapper, and get a air plane sleep pillow

    TV tray also for your pc and dinner...accommodate the bathroom ;) :p

    Most of these guys are full of ****, so they shouldnt have any problem accommodating you.

    The Lightman and I had a bet regarding slammers and pickled eggs.

    Since I cannot attend I lose by default so tell me where to send the signal cables I put up.

    No tv in the crapper but full wifi. Back in my old autocad days I did some of my best work while sitting on the throne. Had nothing better to do so would write cad macros.

    Giving hiis a bit of thought, I love the idea Ron but I doubt Melody is on board with the idea of a bathroom system.
