Default Seattle DIY@ Adire

Over on the Madisound forum there was a complaint that there wasn't any DIY meets in the area. Given that VSAC isn't going to happen and "The Puget Sound" was scheduled to be on the alternating year , so as not to compete with VSAC, folks in the Pacific Northwest were stuck without a venue to display their masterpieces.
Dispair no longer, Dan Wiggins has offered to fill the void by hosting the Seattle DIY event on Saturday, October 15. If you haven't met Dan, he's a pretty nice guy......in fact, if his character weren't marred by his nearly insane jealosy of my groundbreaking speaker designs.......well OK, I'm here to help Dan, not to tell the truth :^)
He did ask me to get the word out, or else my Radio Shack SPL meter (left at Adire by accident) gets used for testing his Parthenon Subwoofer!

Seriously Dan hosts a great event and everyone seems to have a great time.
Hope to see you there,

So if you're interested, here's some of the details posted on the Madisound Forum by Dan:

2006 196th Street SW, Suite 102, Lynnwood, WA 98036. Exit 181B off of I-5. We'll run from Noon to 6-7 PM or so...

If there are commercial vendors who come, they'll be limited to 2 speaker systems. I want to see what the DIYers have!

Electronics will be welcome, too... We have two complete sets of electronics (SACD/DVD player, preamp, amplifier), but could use a 3rd. Anyone have some cool electronics they want to bring for a 3rd rack?

Judging - we can do a "best of show" type judging if you like.

I can bring my pint-sized Squeezebox/NSLU2 music server if there is an interest. I'll also have a set of Orion IIs available for a listen at my place (just south of Adire) for those who want to hear them.

Hey mac.

If you bring your Squeezbox, I can bring my Roku M500 for a comparison. It will run off the SlimServer software (but needs v 6.1.2).

Default I am SO there.

Wow, long time no visit this site. I'll bring my as yet unnamed latest set of speakers. Not saying much about them except, of course, they are relatively large, feature some unusual construction, and are so green.

Do we still need any electronics? I don't have a preamplifier per se, but have a receiver with preamp outputs and several amplifiers (oh the horror!).
