    Next time I am down there, I hope to spend more time. It wasn't in the works this year. Also planning on attending LSAF and the SWAF....

    Good times!

    I will try to reserve some extra time to stop by those who are local as well. I want to hear Josh's setup in his new digs.

    I will be there Saturday for a couple hours. Would be nice to see everyone again.

    Afterwards we could chat about how great my bluetooth speakers sound better than all of ya systems. I have an air purifier that makes magic to them soundwaves. Haha

    Cheers

    Either have I.

    With the one exception of the Genesis flagship speakers of the 80's. Now, that was a treat. With that said, that is the ONLY exception.

    Bliss on Mushrooms sounded phenomenal tonight......I can only hope that a system mimics or beats the sound I just heard.

    Nah, I haven't counted the rooms yet but I think this is it for this year's LSAF. Nobody has a conference room this year.....in fact, I don't even recall seeing a conference room. All rooms are on the 2nd floor.

    It's also nowhere near the crowd of yesteryear. Already met up with Marvin and Russ is here as well.
