Lets take it over there. But I've added your stuff. Including the Threshhold line stage? I'd like to see it! Well, and hear it..
OK - I'm still in. Looks like I'm bringing the following stuff for the Volta room:
1) Thorens turntable
2) ONO clone phono stage
3) Threshold fet 10e line stage
4) Altec 755c speakers

I think that's enough stuff - so I'll skip the the 2A3 SE amps, although the 755Cs do sound good with them.

Yeah loudspeakers are heavy, but we need 'em!
I can bring two sets of 2-way speakers. First is the wave guide Scan-Speaks that have been demo'ed at previous Burning Amps. Show here on the corners of the table:

The second speaker pair uses a Seas DXT and Zaph 14W mid-woofer. These have less BSC and sound best near a wall.

I haven't worked on them in a long-time; good news is they have several years of break-in . I can present them, or they can be used demo'ing other people's electronic components.

How are you managing power? Plug strips etc? Do we need to bring extension cords etc?

This is great!!! I LOVED those waveguide Scan-speaks! Later I started to wonder if they really sounded as good as they seemed, because I didn't listen to them for very long. The fire in the barbeque went out and I had to run down and fan it back to life. Now I'll have a chance to really listen to them- barring another BBQ crisis..

And the second set..... well based your other speakers, I 'm certainly interested in hearing them..

I'll assign them rooms because at Ft. Mason we have enough rooms to hear components throughout the day so we aren't presenting the components in the big room like we did at the yacht club in year's past.

Hey Everyone, we (I) can now relax a bit. We clearly have enough equipment to get every room going, AND some extra stuff to swap in and out.
Whoops- Forgot to list KoHo's Hedlund Field Coil Horns! Those will be worth hearing (and seeing!) They're assigned to the Hertz room.

Of course we assume even more stuff will arrive on the show day and we can probably fit it in. If your component isn't very functional, then we can always just display it on a table. And if you have an extra non-DIY source or cables bring them and leave them in your car trunk, so in case we're short , we'll have backup.

Cables: Remember to bring whatever cable is UPSTREAM of your component. So Speaker cables for speakers, interconnects for amps & preamps.
Put a BIG tag on them with your name and phone number!!! If you prefer we can keep your interconnect attached to your component.

Also consult the room assignments- I change them around as new stuff is offered.

Hi!

I know that's been mentioned before, but I would really appreciate if someone can take care of video recording of the whole, or most of the event. In this way, even if are on the other side of the planet, would feel much closer to the BAF

p.s. Even live webcam comes to mind, but that may be too much...

Looking forward to this weekend.
