Please provide your name, any gear you might wish to bring, and any additional information you wish to share.

I hope to see you all two weeks!

So, I am late to post on this but I've been quite busy since Saturday.  I would like to thank Paul for hosting us and having multiple setups available to play around with.  We had four different zones with five different systems going in a beautiful home and perfect location.  I would also like to thank all the guys for coming out and making this an event.

I probably spent the most time with the Xstatic setup being pushed by a Cary Audio SI-300.2d Integrated amplifier.  This was a temporary setup and we did do a little cable shootout.  This system had a good amount of ambiance with it that was quite pleasing.

Unfortunately, that was about the only system I was able to really sit down and get to know better.  I would love to get to hear his main music system consisting of HSU CCB-8 speakers and other goodies pushing it.  He had some very nice gear in that room but I spent all my time downstairs to be the greeter at this one.

All in all, it was a great meet with some very interesting conversation and a great mixture of approaches to sound.  It was interesting to have a dozen or so guys in one place and not have any one method adopted by the majority.  I look forward to our next one in August... more on that later.
