We'll need lots of volunteers this year. One Marshall for each room minimum,preferably two, plus my posse who swarm over any problem and solve it.. and you get a red shirt! Please post again here even if you've already mentioned your availability and what you can bring.

Mark, I'd be happy to go where you put me. Will bring the jazz module speakers and the Randall museum gear along with a tt.
I'll bring a running system. Would be nice to be able to show up a touch earlier for setup.
Best regards, Bill

Default Would like spot in the Tesla room

I am planning on bringing a large, "modular" 3-way active loudspeaker that I am currently building. Judging from your descriptions of the various rooms, it looks like this would best fit in to the Tesla room.

Will reservations for spots in the room be formalized at some point???

I have just started building amps and really don't have anything to bring other than my time to help with whatever you need help with (I am sure you don't need to look at another Tubelab SimpleSE...).
It would be great to be a part of it in some way or other, or just as a paying visitor; although I understand that's not really what this is all about.

Let me know if you need any help and what kind. I am local (OAK). Also, I don't see the event on the Fort Mason calendar for October 1st this year? Maybe it is a secret location.....? All links point to last year's info.

Anyway, that's my offer so I can get in on the fun. Just PM me.

There are 10 types of people: Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Daveygravey and I are trying to whip something up. I have my Twisted Pear DAC set up running and Davey is working on several types of output stages that can be swapped in for sonic comparisons.
It's not about what you can BUY...It's about what you can BUILD!

This is a very generous offer, but I moved it to here because I want to keep the first posts about room assignments..
