Looking forward to the gathering.

Ti Kan, We'll give you the end of the Tesla room. Absolutely bring the whole system! Maybe you can play around with substituting amps.

Mark,
I noticed that you listed me as bringing the following this year:

The Volta Room: (26'x 32') Systems on each end of the room, which will alternate and swap in different components. Medium power amps, tube or solid state, mostly digital sources, with larger loudspeakers.

One End:
Sources: Gary B: Thorens Turntable & Pass Ono Phono Stage
Preamps: Gary B: FET 10e Threshold Preamp
Amplifiers:
Loudspeakers: Gary B: Altec 755C full range drivers in boxes


That's what I brought last year, but I wasn't planning on bringing any of that this year. As I mentioned in post 62 I was only planning on bringing a couple of DACs that I built this year. Hope that's OK.

Last year, I found the Altecs had a hard time filling the big space, so we'll be better off with some other speakers. We had plenty of DIY preamps so the Threshold also didn't get much use. And we even had some good DIY turntables, so I think the only thing that really got used was the phono stage, which I could be convinced to bring again. Let me know.
Thanks,
---Gary

Hi Gary, you've been a really loyal Burning Amper(?)

Sorry for the confusion, but I've just updated the listing to reflect this year's exhibitors. The listing in the second post WAS showing last year's offerings until now.

The DAC''s seem great, but do you have a computer source or disc player or whatever for them? Otherwise, seems great, In fact I put my preamp and amps with them.
Mark

Hey that's not too much to load into your car is it Bill? 2 sets of speakers?
You really want a repeat?

I'll see wat I can fit in the van.

Hi Mark,

I seem to have been dropped from the listings in post #2... Here's a recap of what I am bringing:

Electronics: CDP-XA20es transport -> toslink/optical output -> MiniDSP 4x10 DAC/DSP crossover

Active Loudspeakers with built in amplification and power supplies:
  • 3-way with stands
  • 2-way: single cabinet with interchangable baffles for MTM and MT systems
Computer & Monitor to demonstrate DIY software that I have created:
  • Active Crossover Design (ACD) software - driver-measurement-based design of analog or IIR digital active crossovers
  • FRD Blender and Minimum Phase Response Generator - for merging/splicing/blending amplitude (SPL) measurements and model responses, and minimum phase extraction.

The DAC/DSP crossover includes a volume control and has analog inputs which will be free. If someone wants to use my system to demo something analog (turntable + preamp perhaps) they are welcome to hook up with me.

Not sure where I belong... Tesla? Hertz?

-Charlie

I can bring a Linux based computer source with some content with either analog or spdif out if it would be useful. I'll also have one of the current Audio Widgets with me. All light and very portable. I could even bring two if it would be useful.

Demian,
Of course you would help a lot by bringing your source. Thank you.

Charlie,
I'm revising the room assignments but got distracted half way through. Still it helped having you run through your system.
I'll have it all updated tonight.

Everyone:

We need:
-A couple of nice turntables and a couple of phono pre's
We'll have a Phono pre designed by Bob Cordell but it needs a turntable
Yeah they're a pain to move, but we need 'em!

-A couple more complete systems. My plan is to have a complete system someone is bringing assigned to each end of each room, then people with just one item can bring it and swap it into the installed systems.


-A mic and mic pre
-a Projector and a screen
