    Um, while we are waiting on the date, who came up with the idea of the first Polkfest? Was it Polk Corporation or a forum member?

    I'm definitely making this one whenever it is

    For those thinking on flying in to BWI, I'm not too far out from the airport, so I could be available to pick ya up and get you to your hotel. Keep that in mind as the Fest activities get set and you plan your travel.

    I hope it is not the 9, 10 or 11 because I will probably be out of the country.
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    Most excellent news.
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass
