Let's start the organizing on this new thread...

Here are some o themes of this year's show:

1. We have more smallish rooms than anything, so systems with smaller speakers, or speakers that work well in smaller spaces will be more likely to get a room. Of course we need some big, impressive speakers too! Just be aware the competiton will be greater to have them play.

2. The majority of systems are going to be put together here online and will consist of components from various different people, as most people only have one DIY item to bring. We need lots of components to mix and match. OTOH, tightly integrated systems are fascinating too, so we're very interested in them too..

3. Say you have a DIY amp with a gold plated chassis and knobs made from precious stones, and transmitter tubes and a 15KV power supply, BUT it hums terribly in one channel, plus it recently arced over to your cat with unfortunate consequenses. Will people want to see it as a passive display- you bet! -We'll have lots and lots of room for components to be displayed. So bring cool stuff to look at , that will set the tone..

4. Haven't made anything yet? Then come look at what people have done and learn how they did it. You don't have to bring anything

Thanks for the enthusiasm guys! And for getting the word out-that's important!
Plenty of tables for show and quite a few rooms for demos. A lot of the rooms are small though so systems with smaller speakers- this is your year!
