" ... The "ocean level" room looks a bit live with the hardwood floors and all. We should make it a "bring your own rug" event! ..."

Good idea = Yes it is a quite "live" room. I have attended dinners there and the crowd noise is high = lots of reflection from the picture windows, hard walls, etc. ... But it is nothing that some wall hanging rugs and a few corner pillows won't cure.

Weather permitting, the outdoor deck is really nice ... October = Indian Summer in the Bay Area = fingers crossed.

They have recently "improved" the room.
(before the photo, the photo is the current condition)
It now has an acoustic tile suspended ceiling- a double edged sword as I have heard that the plenum area above tile can sometimes cause problems. The "clap test" show it to be live but not excessively. We have lots of moving blankets from the last event so can put those around although Vladimir claims that they are slippery on the floor. We do need to figure out how to use them effectively in this new space. Possibly just putting rolled and folded ones around and in the corners will help, but suspending them is preferred. The floor would be ideal, but I guess we need to do a slip test of some sort..

Please don't apologize for the room ... There could not be a better place to have an event such as this. A Super Choice ... if there are any irregularities, we are DIY types and we can fix 'er up ...

(Let me know if you need help ... I have charge accounts at the local hardware stores. )

I'm with you. Some strategically placed absorption and we can make the rooms acceptable.

Gorgeous locale.

Great location, and for our guests, there is an In N Out just (6 miles) up the road.
Mill Valley In N Out

What more could you want? I'm looking forward to another great event.

The easiest solution is just to get 100 of us to commit to being in the room to begin with. The absorption vs frequency of a human body is top shelf stuff.

Failing that, just lay down the rubber non-slip underlay. You can put anything down on that. Including persian rugs. (where's the flying carpet icon when you need it)

I'd be happy to offer a real time RT60 measurement capability from opening time on. I've been using a homebrew MLS technique which is looking very accurate. We could document the room treatment as it's installed. Interesting case study?

That is exactly what we counted on, but we counted over 200 . No treatment needed with all the people present, we do not need dead sounding room.

I already love it with all the enthusiasm and excitement present here.

Guys, feel free to suggest and brainstorm here if you would like to see any addition or changes in the format of the event. We were very happy how the last year event turned out, but we feel that this year we would like to see more structured event. In another words closer adherance to the schedule, so that everyone has enough chance to present their equipment. That is why we felt that it is very important to have a separate rooms with no sound interaction between the rooms, in order to accommodate more people.

How do you feel about presenters and their talks? Do you feel they are needed or we should minimize that and stick more to equipment presentations? Last year we had Alex from RAAL, and this year we are hoping to have Mr. Linkwitz, but I really would like to hear what do you think. If you prefer more talks what subjects would you have the most interest in? Based on last year impressions, I have a feeling that two aspects of the event were the most dominant: Socializing - getting to know each other, and listening sessions. Well, there was one more - Santa Pass.

Please let us know, we are all ears.

I hope to see Magura again for the annual bath in the SF bay?
Cheers for the 1000 posts!
