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???

It's not about what you can BUY...It's about what you can BUILD!

to answer your question, we start packing up at 7PM. By then the excitement has usually died down, but this year we'll have BEER again, so people may well stick around. We have to be out by 8..
