Mercer Island DIY Meet
 
Hi Everbody,

I'd like to announce that the Pacific Northwest Audio Society is sponsoring a DIY Meet to be held on Saturday, September 26, 2009 at the Church on Mercer Island, WA (about 6 miles east of Seattle). The "Club" will have a system, or two, set up in order that whatever you bring can be played.

This is not a contest, rather an informal "Run what ya brung" meet, where people will be encouraged to try out their equipment, meet and talk to like minded individuals, and hopefully get ideas for future projects.

We hope to open the doors at about 10:00 am and wind it up at 4 or 5 pm. If you've never been to one of these events, I can only say they're a lot of fun and a great way to spend an hour (or all day!).

I'll be posting more, such as directions, in the future as things progress, but you still have time to finish up any incomplete projects that you might want to share. Preamps, amps, speakers and just about anything Audio is welcome.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Wow Terry
So long and not a one reply, well I will break the cycle. Just down the road from you and will plan on stopping by. I will keep an eye on this posting.

Barring any unforeseen complications, I will definitely try to make it. It'll be a nice break from the usual headphone meets I attend :D

As always, look forward to it.

Right now I only have my TMM's and the 3-ways to bring. The only thing new will be the paint on the 3-ways -- maybe someone will notice. ;)

If I get time, I hope to have a pair of DR-2's with a tweak to the crossover. Also maybe the bookshelf pair of R/S drivers that you listened to one of this spring.

Terry,

Gary asked if I would be interested in bringing a pair of EnABL/d Fostex 127's and a pair of clean 127's, both in Fonken cabinets. I did not have much to do with either speaker set, but if a blind test was of interest to the club and attendees we could set it up.

And then I still have to call you for that private audition I was going on about. Likely shortly, as it seems the unNW weather is finally moving on, to roast the rest of the country.

I can provide two sets of cables but do not have a switch box to allow one amp to drive both.

Sorry it's been a bit since posting.

For those that may not know Dave, he's one of our past Champion Speaker Builders, as well as having the blessing (burden?) of being an authentic 200% Norwegian! His speaker designs are always well thought out and a delight to listen to.

Bud,

That sounds like a great idea! I'll see if we have a switch box somewhere that we can use. Do you want to demo them at a regular club meeting, as well as the DIY Meet?

The weather been killing me. I need to do some work on my place, but I just run out of energy pretty quickly these days. So there's no rush on the audition

Best Regards,
TerryO

Sure. That will give us a clear idea if a true dbt is worth the effort.
