TWL Summer Audio Rave Party - Saturday, August 5
« on: 26 Jun 2017, 08:44 pm »
I'm planning on having another annual audio party, similar to this one... http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=142855.0

Please mark your calendars... Saturday, August 5, 1 PM to ???

Should have FOUR hi-fi rigs going, including an outdoor system, featuring some early 1970's JBL L-100's that I restored at a very young age.

Please RSVP if you plan on attending...

Cheers,
Pete

Sure can! We are both alums ('77 and '78). We moved back from Philly in 1986. Both just retired in December and eagerly awaiting football season.

I would like to thank Pete and his wonderful family for their gracious hospitality.  The music sounded great and everyone enjoyed what turned out to be a great day.  As usual, Pete showed himself to be a generous host.

Three systems (plus one in the garage) played the whole time, all driven by tubes of varying vintage.  Pete's Volti-modified Klipschorns did most of the heavy lifting in the living room driven  by Border Patrol 300B amps. Tannoy 12" in custom BR cabinets driven by 300B's did duty in a separate room, and a Fisher 500C drove JBL L88's in the backyard system.  Any one of these systems would make most of us happy.

Pete's gatherings are great opportunities to enjoy good music, geek out on audio equipment, and meet local audiophiles.  They also usually feature guest appearances by some industry heavyweights (Gary Dews of Border Patrol and Dave Slagle of Intact Audio were in attendance).

Excellent party, Pete. Thanks for another great one!

BTW, who won the raffle for the 300B Border Patrol amp?

Conversation got interesting when we talked about cars and that I drove a Prius.

Why the hate? lol

All the hate about driving a Prius disappears when you get to use the HOV lane during rush hour.

It actually makes things worst, Roscoe65. The fact that I'm also beautiful doesn't help either. :lol:

Sigh.

I was wondering who invited Brad Pitt to the party.

Hey Pete had great time. Thanks for letting bring the AQUA La Scala DAC and Vida transport for the Tannoy room. When Bo changed out those 300bs for the 50 meshplate OMgoodness. It was excellent before but those toobaroonies are something else.
good seeing D. Slagle and D. Patterson.
