    Why do I feel that this gathering conversation will be going on for the next year.....
    CTC BBQ Amplifier, Sonic Frontiers Line3 Pre-Amplifier and Wadia 581 SACD player. Speakers? Always changing but for now, Mission Argonauts I picked up for $50 bucks, mint.

    Hey Lightman, pauly, engtaz, potee, disney Joe

    do you have any equipment you would like to bring and demo? I have onkyo 805 so i think ya all can hook it up to your equipment. ya all can swap equipments( the one u want to sell or trade) if ya all want to bring and swap.. its cool with me..

    Doro, is there any way we could demo vm 20 at once at my house when they come over? so it would save you on shipping. Will polk company willing to send few unused equipments for us to demo at the event?

    I'll try and get the VM30 series to you but the rest is already in rotation.

    I need a definite date for this gathering, otherwise you're on your own.

    Okay, i will try to get a actual date. I am moving this wednesday on July 1st. I will see when i can have gathering over. I will have to talk to neighbor and make friends with them first and ask if they wouldnt mind if we crank our stuff for the day without any police coming at the door. I do not know the neighbor yet.

    Plus i work so i have to look at schedule first and plan ahead. But gathering will happen, got approved from wife :D but...... i will look around for good prices on Keg anyway :D so tell me guys, how many drinks will you drink so i can figure out what size keg i will buy. if you dont drink, its cool and some non alochol beverages will be provided. Please do share ideas what you want to eat, drink or whatever. so i can actually plan...

    Ill update asap.

    Yes. We are in town. Am still unpacking stuff. Met neighbor they are friendly and I'm sure they won't have a problem with loud speakers or subwoofeer bass. Guy live on my left side works out of town in sarosta and rarely home. And he's nice guy. On right side guy plays professional basketball. Never home and wife is only one who home. I'm not sure what team he plays for but he's damn tall for sure. Met him real brief and had to go to store. He seems really friendly so I'm sure it won't be a problem for ya all to come. Except the gate that you would need to call me to open for ya all.

    I'm on blackberry and verizon guy will come and install cable and modem so ill get on computer tomorrow nite to post pics of my backyard so we can plan event here
