I am already outside the Sheraton: the 1st in line

I will quit work early on Friday and walk the show around 12:00
Saturday and Sunday all day
My kids (12 and 16) will be with me all weekend and they also love the show.

I will bring my favorite clips. The young one loves bass players: Charlie Haden, Victor Wooten, Aviashai Cohen, Stanley Clarke ...
My oldest Son likes Pat Metheney, Clapton, Yes, ELP, Bill Evans ...
I will bring some Medeski Martin & Wood, Casino Royale OST, Anne Ducros, Stacey Kent. Do you have special requests ?
Reserve 3 chair for me

Cool parenting job. congrats Your kids have basically it covered, look forward to meeting them and you. Quadraphenia I would love to crank at a show is one request, it has been my system test music since the early 70's. I left my CD copy in China with Jungson for product testing, would love to hear it on vinyl again.

Cheers,
Ian

I'll also have our Amplitrex AT-1000 tube tester with the 211, 805, 845 adapters with us, if anyone wants to test their tubes.

Cheers,
Ian

Hi Ian,

How was the show in Montreal ? Were sales good ?
I really like the amplifiers in display and the pricing is great. I looked at your site and I could not find a SET amp. Do you have SET amplifiers with power triodes ?

I did not make it on time to find the Quadraphenia album ... but I just found a used vinyl copy in OK shape. I can ship it to you if you are still interested

SSI 2009 (just so we can get used to the name change) was great for us. It's nice to have a rotating roomful of people who get the Canadian jokes. Did you notice all the GF bags?, I thought that was cool.

We sold lots of tubes a complete entry level audiophile system (LS3/5A based), lots of power cables and conditioners.

Again, way too much Diana Krall. Not sure why, she makes any system sound great. Thanks for the offer on Quadraphenia, I'll find it somewhere.

Didnt get to see hardly any rooms, too busy. Which did you like? Great show, probably my favorite out of the major NA shows and hey nothing much like downtown Montreal !!

Cheers,
Ian
