Regards,
Not a complete Kit but the PCB and all electronic components. I still need to build an enclosure and find suitable tube sockets etc. This is approx a two weekend project for me.

21st is a date. As I said earlier, I am happy to supply office again. Also happy to rotate to another location. If Amcan is keen on hosting, it has the advantage of having speakers already on location.
Let me know. I plan to attend either way.
Great if Merlin and Jamco brought lightspeed and TVC attenuators for a direct comparison. It would be very interesting to compare vs tube preamp. I am debating building a grounded grid preamp and actually using lightspeed inside the GG. It is time for me to commit to a long term linestage.

Ya I am keen to host. I have guys from CAM over pretty often so its no hassle for me. I'll probably invite a few guys that some of you already know from other circles.

I don't want to post my address here - I am sure you guys must have an email list generated by now. If someone can give me a PM we can put my email address on the list and then go from there. The time will be from 12 noon to 5pm.

People can bring stuff for sure. We can either come up with a plan ahead of time to have a shoot out on one type of gear or come up with a platform ahead of time to maximize time. 5hrs will go before you know it just from switching out gear all the time. This is my equipment list below.

Braun L-910 Studio Monitors (recapped) -main system
PSB Imagine Ts - secondary spkrs
PSB Imagine Bs - secondary spkrs

Harman Kardon Citation 19 Power amp - rebuilt -main system

Audible Illusions L1 Line Stage - Mundorf Black Cathode Power Supply - Main
HK Citation 17 Preamp - fully recapped, rebuilt power supply, output board

Peter Daniels USB DAC - Main System
Grant Fidelity Tube DAC-09

Denon DP-2000 in Custom Plinth, FR-14 Tonearm, SAE 1000e - Main System

Sonic Frontiers Signature 1 Phono w/ Platinum Upgrades - Main System

I am most interested in hearing a SET Amp to drive my Brauns. I can't find the sensitivity on these spkrs but based on the ADS version they may be around 93dB. They are easier to drive than the Imagine Ts, which are 89dB.

I would also be interested in hearing a passive preamp.

I will supply beverages.

I would sure be interested. Whether it fits this session or another, the 26 vs TVC vs Lightspeed would be an education for me.

I think that would be great. The office was fine, but meeting at your place sounds better. thanks for this offer

I would like to attend and can bring my set amp again which was at wlowes last meet, with 6l6, KT88 and KT120 tubes to drive your Braun or other speakers.

I for one would like to hear that amp again...It was so quiet it has changed the way I will do my Class D setups.
