Default Show of Hands

Who can i expect to be there?

ChrisB, Frank (not on the forum), and myself will be bringing the Suburu and 3 sets of Frugal-phile(tm) class speakers, and maybe some other goodies. My friend Mark from Burnaby may also show up.

Will there be a decent TT there? And if not a decent MM pre to plug one into?

So far almost 40 people have said they are coming.
AMPs well 2 Yamaha maybe 3
Not Tubes at all.
I got the input to use a reciewve as the ones I own to keep the listening as real as possible.
Most of the people here will not have a tube set up.
So if you want to bring one I have a third room we can easyly set up.Only 12X14 with a 18ft ceiling.That could be a little hard to tame.

Good to see you have others coming also.

Dan from Adire has just of today not been able to come.But I am still getting a FREE TEMP to give away besides PE threw in some stuff as did CSS.
The special guest may show up from Adire but nothing in stone as of today.Plans just changed for him.

See you then.

Consider it sold. I'll see if i can arrange some tubes. A TT and a good budget "giant-killer" receiver anyway.

What kind of room is it anyway? If we could borrow a gravity generator from Star Fleet we could just "rotate" the room 90 degrees.

Show of hands? Here's 2.
Although I haven't yet contacted Mr. Wooley directly, I'll be there, with my girlfriend in tow. (Although she's never built anything herself, she's one of the few females in this world who can appreciate the value of a ridiculously oversized subwoofer - and would allow it in her house!)

Unfortunately, we'll be taking the bus out, so I won't be able to bring any of my very few projects that are actually complete.

Did you say you're giving away a FREE TEMPEST!?!?!?
I am awestruck by the possibility... But, alas, I have never won anything before. (except from Ed McMahon - I may already be a winner!)

I am looking VERY forward to this. I don't actually know any "real" people who are into DIY audio. (just internet folks) I go to BCIT for EE, but I don't know a single soul who is into audio.(sad...) It'll be cool to put a face to all you guys who are coming.

That is the word ADIRE is giving away a free TEMEST DRIVER.
Dan from Adire was hoping to make it up himself but we have now found out he may not make it.But the TEMP is here and is going to be given a NEW HOME.
Look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 10AM.

Any body from the Seattle area heading up there?
I'd love to car-pool. Let me know ASAP. I'll buy gas.
(my plates have expired and I don't want to get a ticket)

If huey's spirit wins the Tempest, everyone will be pretty mad...
When I'm 60, I'll be telling my grandchildren about the Surrey audio riots of '02...
