    Well, if you live on the old people/ speed demon(Jesse) roads we do....you'd feel the same way. I applaud him in his hatred of them lol.

    Hey man I got new for you when I see a Maryland tag on the back of a car here in Delaware I do everything in my power to get past them. They just love to camp out in the left lane and stay neck and neck with the car to their right . . . the worst is when they lag behind and there is an opening to get around them and they speed up to close the gap just as you are speeding up to go around them! UGH!;)

    Chuck use to like to do that stuff to out of staters!:eek:

    One day I went around an older lady with Maryland tags who was just hogging the left lane going 40 in a 50 MPH zone and I zing around her. She was so pist that I got around her that she followed me into the strip mall I was going to just to wave her cell phone at me like she was calling the police. WACKO personified!:D

    I have no idea how you Maryland guys keep the road rage to a minimum.

    I'll be there from Thursday night thru Sunday. So you lucky folks have no choice but to actually interact with me at some point. If the haters can agree on a time, I'll make myself scarce for a couple hours :D

    It appears to be a more Saturday or Sunday thing Face.

    Any local Polkies that don't have any Thursday evening plans are welcome to come down and help setup. I'll ensure you're fed and hydrated and you can get some behind the scenes looks at what's going on elsewhere in the building.

    PM for my phone number if you're interested.

    I'd like to but our car isn't running in the best condition right now.

    If there are any Polkies coming down I 95 from the north I could use a ride, I'm only 7 minutes off it either Thursday night or the day of the Audiofest. I would love to help set up.

    I have enough help guys, all is well. F1Nut is shuttling and bringing his ears as well, personal friends Randy and Tom are helping out and Len Shufelt from Polk is coming down too.

    We'll have everything fairly dialed in by midnight if not sooner....tweak a bit the next day. Len and I are raiding the warehouse and office area on Thursday for goodies and stuff we can steal until Monday. SSSSSsssssshhhhh don't tell anyone.

    I wish it were possible to drop by to see your set-up(s). The amps look very nice, what are the price tags on those?

    Cheers!

    Mark,

    Are you going to have any subs?
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    I have a DSW MicroPro 4000 but unfortunately I was under the impression I was getting a different pre-amp. It has no pre-outs and is an integrated amplifier. You wouldn't happen to have a pre-amp or something with pre-outs that I could borrow? I can't run the BBQ and am 100% Ayre for now.

    Al ordered a different DAC than I was expecting so no upsampling my iTouch....ugh, just a lot of little things kinda went wrong but the room is up and running.

    Call me in the AM.

    You won't need 'em in that room. I fully expect people to be asking you where the sub is, without one playing.

    For anyone on the fence, get off of it. There's all kinds of really cool gear, besides Polk, at the show. I saw perhaps the smallest pair of tube mono block amps in the audio world.

    I agree. It would be too much bass. We have it out for display along with some vintage tweeters and some other stuff. I'll have some pics tomorrow afternoon for you Russ.

    I got involved in the really early stages of this show and when we left tonight....UNREAL, it's a full blown, hardcore event man. Anyone worth hearing is here....no joke. I traded tshirts with Albert from Manley Labs and we're working with Grape Vine Audio(Local) to have him run the RTiA9 on his super cool gear.

    There's a swap meet for gear on Sunday and a TON, TON, TON of vinyl here. The "modified" rig is the following:

    Polk Audio LSi9 & LSi7
    Polk Audio RTiA9
    Ayre CX7e Evolution CDP & Sony SCD-777ES(Tomorrow)
    Ayre AX7e Evolution Integrated Amplifier
    MIT Cables
    Signal Cable
    Bright Star Audio Isolation
    Adona Corporation Rack
    Usher Audio Stands

    We are setup by Polk Audio, Joe Abrams of Equus Audio & MIT Cables, my personal best friend/sherpa Randall and your well known Club Polk member F1Nut(Jesse). Not to mention Len Shufelt, Kyle Shufelt, Kim Jasper, Al Ballard, Shelia Edwards, Greg O'Rourke and others from Polk HQ that really pulled out all the stops to help me get this event solid.

    Please give these guys a hand because I could not have completed setup tonight by myself.
