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.

(through Goldstream park, no?)

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.

I can bring the B'horns, maybe the GG pre too?

Yes please.

I'm bringing buisness card's for my new company for every one

Gee, that'll be nice. Is your picture on it? I need a new centre piece for my dartboard. :D

Sure hope it doesn't rain. Those 825 cabinets can't handle much more. Tarping them for watertight would be tough.

Dave was wondering if I had a passenger seat available. Only problem is that's where the woofers and tweeters are going.

Unless it's raining, and then a seat is available.

Usb1543 Dac

I finished my prototype DAC tonight. Now it just needs to break-in a bit before Saturday's event.

Details with pics can be seen here:

I will post the pics here too because I think you need an account at diyhifi.org to see the pics.
