    True, but a major fire hazard if we're talking gas stove. Never want to blow a 0.12 around an open flame...

    Gettin really stoked here, I am going to be bringing several pieces with me,eosone rsf 1000, klipsch rb 35, polk sda 2b, tenn sound co. speakers ( these are one of a kind ), phillips c.d.,l.d. player that I think sounds extremly good, dynaco pat 4, knight integrated amp if I can find some tubes in time, and a few other misc. items.

    You guys will just have to over look the eosones as they are a work in progress and they have some cosmetic issues that I still do not have resolved but it does not effect their performance.

    The biggest issue is the sub amp in one tower may not be functioning when I get there, I had pulled it out today with intentions of getting it repaired on monday, I layed it in front of the unit on the floor with the inards facing the ceiling and while I was behind the speaker placing the screws back in the respective holes my oldest walked up to see what I was into and stepped smack down on the power supply board and broke it into two pieces so I have no idea if I will be able to have it working or not but they still sound great even with just the one towers sub working. I would just purchase one from polk but just lack the funds to do so right now. To bad they wouldn't loan us one for the meet and paul could bring it with...hint hint.

    Anybody bringing stands we could set the klipsch on?



    Looking foward to this,
    Mike

    Oh yeah, forgot one more thing. Does anyone have a pinblade interconnect they could bring to use with the 2b's? I do not have one but a buddy of mine has given me a blade blade cable that I plan on converting but I doubt that I will have time to do it before I head down.

    I need 6bq5's, four if memory serves me right. I am going to get her out tonight and do a double check as to the exact #. A variac will be needed if some tubes can be found as it has not been used for quite a while.


    Cheers,
    Mike

    Troy, We should be in fri. afternoon.

    Dave - Wish you could join us man, we'll take some good pics for you :)

    Troy - OK, I'll bring a pair of LSi7's. Is anyone bringing a representative of the Monitor series? I have some 10A's and 10B's handy.

    Troy, since space may be at a premium, do you have an updated
    list of components .(mainly speakers)
    I can cover:
    Polk monitor 10's
    Advent Large (early version)
    JBL 4410 monitors (for fun)
    KLH 17's
    Infinity RS6000's(again just for gettin' nasty loud)

    Still planning on :
    Kenwood M2 amp/C2preamp
    Jolida J100 CDP
    33 misc Jazz,Blues,Classical and Rock CD's
    Living relatively close by I can rotate speakers to cover a broader range/variety of speaker styles and someone coming from further
    out can use the extra space.

    Jesse has volunteered to be strapped to the roof rack, in order to make room for more speakers inside the vehicle :D

    You going to pick him up a bug shield to keep his face clean?:D
    I have a pair of mon. 7's, they look like crap but sound just amazing. But my personal fav is the mon 10's, wish I still had mine.

    Russ, thanks for bringing the quad, it'll be nice to here the knight sing again.
