You're welcome to bring along whatever you have or want to bring to the party. Most folk set up a full system and we all take turns to play 3-tracks of your choice. If we have time after this then folk swap around gear so if you see an amp you like you can hook up your speakers to see how they sound etc. etc. No set plans as such it's all very informal and intended to be a full and informative day. Any source is welcome being it Streamed digital via laptop, Squeezebox etc., CD or vinyl.

I think there is a amp build comp shootout in the making so this could be interesting.
Are you saying the hall is large so the speakers will be lost? If so I think il be ok, at the moment they are in a 5000 square foot factory and loud as hell, if you mean the hall is small then hmm I don't know

What size bass drivers are you using?

Chances are you'll be okay: they aren't exactly small.

We'll see how it goes, but I suspect definitions of "loud as hell" vary.

Im using 10" bass drivers, 2" silk dome mid 1" silk dome tweeter, loud as hell lol, well ive had my proac 3.5 up to the max before which handle 250w with ease but these seem much more powerfull, and ive not realy pushed them at all, maybe because where they are they can breath better, it will be interesting to hear how they perform there.

I might not quiet have the cosmetics finished but i will try.

There's one at Owston Lodge on the 15th & 16th of June.

Saturday tends to be quite hectic, we try to get a few tracks out of everyone's systems, then it all goes to mix and match or something bonkers that someone's brought along (a while back we had an 833A SET amp with the anodes glowing red - they reckon 90w/ch out of it).

Sundays tend to be quieter, as around 50% of us go for the first day and don't stay overnight. I haven't been there on a Sunday, but I'm told its a bit more relaxed.

Its usually about 10 per person, and another 5 for the Sunday, which covers renting the room, and a buffet lunch, with lots of (very good) chips.

I'm hoping to make this one, though I won't be able to bring my stereo.

Chris
