Thanks!

So, who's going? I plan to be there all three days unless something major comes up.

Should be there all three days. Wasn't able to catch up with many ACers last year, so hope to see lots of you there this year! Look forward to it.

As Michael Jackson used to sing, "I'll be theeerrrreeeeee, I'll be theeerrrreeeeee.........".

Probably on Saturday, but I am starting to feel a cold coming on for the Friday that will keep me out of work.   :D

I'll be in both Room 308 (with BorderPatrol Audio Electronics and Volti Audio) and with fellow AC Sponsor Vinnie Rossi in nearby Room 314...

dB - if you're looking for a superb DAC (at $995), you might want to check out BorderPatrol's new DAC. It's housed in a solid copper chassis (not plated)... and sounds wonderful! It's making it's global debut at AXPONA! Gary Dews from BorderPatrol is known for his incredible power supplies & phenomenal sounding equipment...





More info here... http://www.borderpatrol.net/DAC.htm

Either way, please everyone come join us for a libation of your choosing & Have Fun!

Cheers,
Pete

Pete, will see you sometime during the week in Room 308.  The DAC looks big-time, and I know Border Patrol doesn't release anything until it sounds sublime.  Looking forward to it.

Looks like I will be DJ'ing in room 408 with Salk and Schiit Audio. I won't be in there all the time, as I hope to do some tire kicking myself, but I will be there plenty.

Make sure you speak with me. I'll be the ruggedly handsome one so easy to spot!

LampizatOr will be there in room 634 debuting our new Golden Atlantic along with our DSD Komputer. Spatial audio will also be debuting it's M3 Triode Master speakers in our room powered by Linear Tube Audio 40 OTL monoblocks all linked together with Verastarr. I hope some of my fellow ACers drop in to see us!

We'll also have one of our Golden Gate DACs in the Von Schweikert room which they'll be using to show their VSA Ultra-11 speaker system.

I'll be around for the weekend.

FYI: I will probably bring my DIY F4 that is for sale for anyone who might be interested. (Best $300 bucks you'll ever spend  8)) I may bring some of the small signal tubes I've been trying to sell (I'll update my ad this week for those who might be interested), and I am also bringing along a box of various tube pulls--that may,or may not, be good for anything audio. I will gladly give them to any interested party for free. I just can't stand the thought of throwing them away, so if anyone wants them, just let me know.

Cheers,
gb

I've made it to three of the last four -bought a three day pass this year- this year looking forward to another listen to the Sweet Vinyl room. And there has always been some room that is a pleasant surprise -two years ago - the Linkweitz LXmini that Madisound was demoing was the obvious surprise ( Now I've just got to build the pair I bough the drivers/digi-crossover for.)

My Rack of Wonder will be in room 634, gracefully holding up all that beautiful Lampizator and Linear Tube gear. Spatial M3 Turbo S speakers with Verastarr cables will round things out nicely. Should be a must see room for sure!!!
