Default August 27 Vancouver Island Chapter DIY-fest

The core group already know about this, i'm just starting the thread to get a place to discuss details and maybe get a few outliers notified (i didn't do it earlier since i don't want it to get too too big -- small & intimate usually means better listening)

I still have a lot of work to get ready for this -- after all it is taking place at a working audio junkyard (err... recycling facility). If you don't already know the way maps will be provided.

We have at least 3 off-island guests coming (and i don't know whether Cal's passenger seat is taken but he could probably use a hand with the Voice of the Theatres).

For those coming from far-far away there is a certain amount of floorspace, and i know we can find a place to put up a tent.

It is looking good for having a number of FR125/WR125 boxes, Fostex (FE127, maybe FE108ES -- Don?), Bart's Aura NS-3s, plus a number of Frugal-phile(tm) creations. MiniA(s), gainclone(s), SE tube amps, PP tube amps, vinyl & CD.

We'll have BBQ. Bring your own mind altering substances -- nicotine addicts will be subjegated to the back 40 while ingesting theirs.

Yep. From your direction a left turn off hiway 1 into Goldstream Park (Finlayson Arm Road), 3.3 km up the mountain, turn left into the driveway with the big red watertank that is just opposite the "you are entering the Highlands... the fire danger is..." sign.

Dave: I will bring my prototype USB interfaced TDA1543 DAC I have been working on. I will bring a computer and lossless tunes to run it.

My G4 has my entire CD library on it as well. I have one of the cheap Xytel DACs -- it will be an interesting comparison.

Pinkmouse: With jleaman's help I hope to have a board/kit available by xmas. Single TDA1543 with USB PCM2706 interface. Tons of work to do on it yet. It will be nice to get some feedback on it at Dave's event.
