    Poking dust caps in? Might as well be posting snuff films. Travesty.

    There is a place nearby that you could drop them off at for a few hours. Make it a day trip, do your thing, take then to do something here in the area and head back home.

    It’s possible we might have Cambridge step up and add some flavor to the event as well. More to come on that.

    Naw... they just have interesting tastes in electronics. :#

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    So I just spoke with a Polkie who was curious if this was worth the trip. In my opinion, yes. I know I’m the host so I’m probably biased but I do put a lot of work into this so that it doesn’t feel like you’re just dropping by some guys house to listen to a system.

    If you are on the fence, get off of it! Come meet the Texas brethren.

    I'd say absolutely. I was at Polkfest 2012 and just meeting the faces behind the CP aliases (and personalities) was worth it. Plus, knowing Skip's reputation, I'm sure you'll have a great Polk day and broaden your horizons with respect to the gear he carries. Yes, I'm sure he'd love for someone to buy his offerings, but you'll probably never get a more straightforward opinion on all things audio.

    I'm in the PNW but seriously have thought about flying down for this. Unfortunately, scheduling doesn't work.

    Just my .02 cents but these meetups don't come up often. Consider this a Club Polk Public Service Announcement. :smiley:

    ....Edit to add, showcasing the L800 and I'm sure Skip will give it the attention everyone is wanting!
