Free stuff for traditional raffle. People generally dig deep and bring parts that they know in their hearts they'll never use. This is always a big deal, and a tradition started when at the first BAF Nelson Pass pulled up with a filled F-250 pickup..

I am requesting being placed in the DeForest room. I will bring my Bottlehead Sex 2.1 amplifier, Marantz CD player, and Fostex FE103EN speakers. More than happy to have the Sex amp swapped in with other speakers. I will also bring a low-fi system consisting of the "What the heck it's cheaper than than lunch amp!", TDA7297, Sony Playstation 1, and a pair of speakers (haven't decided which ones).

I will also bring my Quickie-battery powered preamp to be swapped in a mixed system and can bring a Foreplay pre if requested.

Ok - Here's what may make it...

2-3 Tube amps 30 W/ ch ("Kingfisher" P-P w/improved compensation), "Miz Piggie" screen driven SE retooled for Schade feedback (8-10W/ch). "Contentious Amp" (PP) or "Iron Garter" (PP) (15-20W/CH).

2-3 Solid State Amps (maybe more) - Le Mutant Class A, "Das Ist Aber Schade" SE Class A with transformer coupling, L'Fake Lite with Schade fake SIT and light bulb load - maybe more.

Two preamps - one rudimentary box w/All-In-One MM RIAA preamp and lineamp w/gain setup, one box w/MC preamp and All-In-One MM preamp/lineamp w/gain (alt design). configurable for flexible setup.
Those who want to bring MC TT can specify load resistor beforehand.

TT - Denon DP-1100 w/ Denon DL-160 high output MC cartridge.

Speakers - Tri-Trix transmission line or sealed box 16X drivers in hexagonal prism omni setup.

CD - highfaluttin' CD player from Cal Audio Labs.

Still finalizing my plans, but I'll nonetheless do some blue sky thinking about what I will be bringing:

LOUDSPEAKERS:
* A sub+stereo panel system (sorry, I don't have a fancy name for these yet) - this is a large, 12-slot-loaded-driver deep-U-Frame subwoofer at center, flanked by open baffle dipole 3-way panels similar to these speakers that I demoed last year: mid-size open baffle plus "FIN" design prototype
* Another but yet-to-be-finalized and more conventional loudspeaker pair

STREAMING AUDIO DEMO
Both of the above loudspeakers are wireless, active systems. I will be streaming audio to them and I will be happy to demo the system and answer questions. I use all open source, free software for this.

SOFTWARE DSP CROSSOVERS USING LINUX AUDIO APPS
Both active speakers will be using active DSP crossovers that are implemented under Linux using open source software and some software that I have written for this purpose.

The "blue sky" part of this is that I need to be able to stream across the wireless network at the host company or I need to bring my own WiFi router and implement my own private network for streaming. I still need to contact the host to see what is possible on that end.

Here's the preamp I originally showed in the BA 2015 announcement thread as a bare board all loaded up any ready for gain-phase measurements to tweak the compensation. There are two channels of MM RIAA preamp and two lineamp channels on board, as well as a fast discrete shunt regulator. This will make its way to BA after proving its stuff in my living room.
