Cal,

If you're concerned about fleas, I hope that you intend on sleeping in the back of your truck again this year

All kidding aside, I'd love to hear your MINI System, as I suspect, others would as well.

Best Regards,
TerryO

What amp are we gonna try? I remember something about a 1 watter I had in my bedroom for a couple months. Something about a flea?
Yea i think a couple or 3 fleas might work well, hopefully we'll have our own DCX2496 by then and whip up a quick XO.

Interestingly enough, we (my family) were planning a summer vacation to see friends on Vancouver Island. I could mebbe smuggle a system up in the back of the Subaru.

Is the event kid friendly at all? i.e. they won't be interested in our toys for more than 10mins and will want to run around with the animals and other kids outside. Or should I find something else for them to do?

I'd love to come and see what's happening up Seattle/VI way, you guys talk about some neat gear.

Iain, it would be great to have you up for the event. I'm just a big kid and they haven't stopped me yet.

Ya, let's just throw away that silly notch filter and L-pad it took me a couple of months to get right because I'd had used an off the shelf XO to start. Sometimes you just make too much sense. We'll start with what I've done and then the fun's up to you guys.

Let's hope the weather cooperates, not only for the ride over with the open truck but I hear I'm cooking some fish. Rainy fish doesn't taste as good as sunny fish.

Kids showed up for part of the Fest last year, they are welcome. The animals are a dozen cats and Muffin the dog that thinks she is a cat. Lots of places to go for a walk, we are just south of a many hectare park, just north of a trail to another, and on 4 acres of our own.

There are horses down the road, and deer are quite common.

There is a waterpark, & mini golf down the road, and just in general, Victoria is a big tourist destination.

You only biamp when you have the full rig? I'm happy to use the passive. We can hook one of the big amps to iit -- 30-60W...

Now we're talking. I hope no one's having a nap at that point. Are these tube amps? That would be nice to hear.
If need be I can bring over the DH-500 and the H/K Citation 17 pre-amp. If so, are we going to put these on the top of your mountain?
