Lots of interest. Everyone, please bring stuff that other's could use.. Informal swapping also permitted! Not sure how much Nelson will bring this year as he must be running out after all the shows! And we gave away tons of stuff from NHT the last couple of years, but that is gone now too..

I will bring the following and probably more:

- α10 preamp (with relay R-2R ladder attenuator, relay input/output switching, LCD display and IR remote control)
- β24 power amp (big solid state fully-differential amp)
- γ2 DAC (USB/coax/optical, switchable filters)
- β22 amplifier (for headphones and low-power speakers)
- laptop computer with music
- Sennheiser HD800, HD600, HD580 and PX100 headphones

Dunno which room works best for these.

I have a PGA2320-based preamp as in volume/balance control, remote no less. See pic.
Can handle up to 4-way active installations but works plain stereo too ;-)
Would like to try it out on different systems. Will bring anyway.

One clever thing I did was name the rooms, not use their room numbers! That way I can change my mind! Tables are provided.

The Tesla room is now where Nelson Pass was last year ... Nice! The Pass Pub is in what was the room where when had manufacturers, food, and raffles last year

The huge room where the presentations were last year will again be presentations, but when there aren't presentations, there will be exhibits,
food, drink, conversation. We have it all day this time. Just the rooms rental is about $2500.

Was this room the large lecture hall at last year's show?

Absolutely! and the tables and moving blankets are linked. At the barbeque I outlined the plan, so 5 of us know what to do, and will be able to quickly explain it. Volunteers please show up at 8:30 at Building C at Ft Mason. We have about 12 red "Staff" shirts available on a first come basis. BUT the Redshirts would also have to commit to spending most of their time supervising the rooms. The rooms will be shut down for the presentations/ raffle so you won't miss them, and we can rotate people between rooms


Basically the rooms are lined with as many tables as we can fit in, around the perimeter. Each table will have a moving blanket on it, extending down the front and down the back The tables should be about 2 inches from the wall. Equipment will look quite nice displayed on the blankets, which will form bass traps of a sort and absorb some high frequencies.

At the "First Bounce" point where sound will first bounce off the side walls and at other points, we'll set a second table on top of the first blanketed table and put a blanket on it too. Maybe put some chairs on top of the second table to diffuse sound. About 7' tall in total. Lots of chairs on the floor to diffuse the sound.
