Just returned from the diy fest and must say there was good sound to be heard from various shapes and sized speakers spread throughout the property.

Thanks to Dave and Ruth for putting up with everyone.

And a special mention for Cal being in charge of after hours driveway flashlight patrol to make sure we find our cars in the dark!

Final max count on attendance was 23 1/2. Half dozen less people kept things a little bit less hectic.

The 1/2 was Stew's virtual attendance. (Stew really wanted to be here... but he got caught in a Catch22). He sent along his tone arm tutorial. He couriered arm tubes and pen refills. Bernie did lovely wooden headshells, and wooden bases, and at least 1/2 dozen people went home with arms.

Pictures to follow.

I'm one of the lucky arm recipients. Many thanks to Stew and Bernie for their efforts.

you'd need to dig out your jeweler's loupe to count them all - particularly those on the "dust cap" dome, or save yourself the eye strain and just listen

Mark had already raised the bar on performance from a "dinky little metal cone" with the A7/ A10MKII, and Bud's polka dots just dig deeper into the fine grain and texture of detail.

Dave Rosgaard and I left the Stargate to Planet10 at 9 am this morning and pulled into Dave's Driveway at 5:20 pm after having to wait to board the second ferry.

Dave R had a great time, as did I.

I'd like to thank Dave, and especially Ruth for once again hosting an event that is just about the most fun you can have and still look people in the eye the next morning! Good Music, good gear, good food and great people to share it with, what a blast.


Note: Of all my winnings I gave away four prizes, not three, keeping only a pair of "polka dotted" drivers for myself. As I consider myself indebted to both Bud Purvine and Dave D. for putting up with me all these years, I have taken a vow to return to the mountain fastness of Castle Dlugos next year with a pair of "Nabled" speakers toin order to go head to head with Don the Doorman's promised pair.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Default Fun and good sound

Hello folks
I made it home safe and sound as well. Reliving some of the interesting conversations I had makes the journey go quite quickly.

Lots of fun this year. A warm thank you and hug from up island to Ruth, Dave, and Chris. Daniel you are a god of electronics. I marvel at how quickly you diagnose stuff and get it fixed up. You are truly a helpful DIYer with the coolest toys.
I always love spending giggle time with my brother from a different mother. Cal you are the greatest Man!!!! I hope we did not cause too much kaos but it does come as part of the package. At least we did not do any burning stone experiments this year.

For me the hit of the show was the three way by David Rosgaard. I just wish my newly repaired Aikido/F4 had a bit more output to really put them to the test. As was said by others that is one very good sounding speaker. Good for you David.

Nuff said for now

Thanks again

Many, many thanks to Dave & Ruth for hosting what's become a highlight of my (challenged!!) social calendar!
The hospitality is second to none. Throw a great bunch of folks into the mix, and the event truly becomes one not to be missed.
Thanks to Chris for his willingness to swap speakers/components around, even into the late hours!
Terry's generous gift of a pair of Alpair chr70eN's was most welcome, but definitely "a stick with two ends" as the sawdust my surely fly, or else!!
(hoping you didn't blow all your luck at the 'fest, and have saved some for the Wash. state Lottery!!)
Thinking also that Cal at least deserves honourable mention, if not an outright prize for his version of a Winnebago!!
Best to all, looking forward to next year already,
Don
