The Junior Audiophiles will demonstrate the winning set of speakers from this year plus top projects from years past.  They will be powered by an integrated amp project.  Gary Dodd built a prototype from a garage full of old Fisher 400 and 500 receivers, sent us the prototype and several boxes of parts.  A handful of students copied the prototype to create a Fisher Iron Dodd Design integrated.  Other projects will be powered by a Moscode 300 with a Dodd battery pre.  IC's are Electra Cables and DIY.  Source is a Marantz transport and Buffalo/Dodd battery Dac.  Just for grins, I'll try to bring my FrankenDodd amps- a pair of 1950's vintage Eicos brought back to life by Gary, but they don't sound like Eicos anymore.  :thumb:

Electronics being brought from various other companies almost to numerous to list.

I will also be bringing my Clio measuring system along. So any of you DIY guys that would like their speakers measured, no problem.

I haven't decided for sure what to bring, but it will be one of my new speaker systems. 

At the moment the front-runners are the Cloud Chasers, 95-dB bipolars:

Or possibly the Rhythm Prisms, 93-dB floorstanders adaptable to a wide range of room situations:

Unfortunately I only have room for one pair of speakers in my car.

I'll be there again this year as a non-commecial exhibitor with a Cambridge Audio Azur 840C CD player, Krell KAV-400xi integrated amp, and Selah Audio Texas Revelator Tower 2.5-way kit speakers in DIY enclosures, all connected with Silver Circle Audio cables.

I'm voting for the Rhythm Prisms. They're perfect for the relatively small rooms at the LSAF and priced so you don't need deep pockets to buy them.  :thumb:

Thanks for voting, Fred!  Good observation that Rhythm Prisms would be a better "fit" with the rooms.

See you in a few weeks.

I talked to Dave Stanard of Silver Circle Audio, and he tells me he will bring an Esoteric DV-60 player, an Antique Sound Labs AQ1003DT amplifier provided by Tash Goka of Divergent Technologies, a pair of Tyler Acoustics DM3 standmount speakers, Silver Circle Audio cables, and their flagship product, the Silver Circle Audio Pure Power One 5.0 power conditioner. http://www.silvercircleaudio.com/Html/products/50.html

My room will be a second Silver Circle Audio room, with Silver Circle cables and the Pure Power One 3.0 conditioner. http://www.silvercircleaudio.com/Html/products/power.htm

Fred and fellow exhibitors, got a question.  What sort of marketing and/or advertising is going on and where to attract consumers in the area?  It's a large market, I guess that goes without saying, and we should want to get info in front of as many people as possible.  I haven't seen word of this over at Audio Asylum, for example.  Must be a few subscribers over there living in the area.  One post I've seen on AC lists exhibitors.  It could be good, even better with graphics, if that kind of info was viewable by more people, the more the merrier.  And, is there any advertising going on for the general public?  I will help in any way that I can.  Don't think notifying posts should come from me, however, cause I'm a mickey mouse manufacturer.

What can you think of we could or can and should do?  We could begin sharing ideas and starting the work here and now . .

This show diffinately needs more promotion in some form or another.

It would be nice if it were promoted by the on line magazines. That would help.

Mentioning it on all of the various forums would go a long way too.

By the way, I am bringing something never before seen at a show. It is a new patent pending technology soon to be announced.

Stereophile has an industry section where they talk about audio club gatherings.  They might list LSAF if you ask.  Probably to late for this year, but should work for next year if you send it early.

Just a thought.

Uh huh-  Don't know if you know this (a copy of an email just got):

'Decided to go and booked my room tonight. Will be there night of 14 and 15. Showing off my Lighter Note preamp. Bring your preamps with you, lets have a challenge!

Uriah'

You heard the man.  I volunteer to offer my aged opinion. 

Good for you, Uriah!   Plus, I posted the list of exhibitors and location, etc., on A'gon and AA, anyway, except on AA it seems struck in limbo.  Uriah, man, where did you get a name like that? Must be some significance there.  Most interesting.  Gimme your company name and web address and I'll see that you are included as an exhibitor.  Plus, I'll modify my posts elsewhere to include you.  See ya.

I'll copy Fred, too, right now cause maybe I'm not "Doin the Thing" right.  Who knows whose tune that is?

I agree about the need for increased promotion. The important thing about the LSAF is that it isn't an organized event. It's only a place and time where anybody can rent a $99 room and exhibit their audio stuff. There is no "committee" to promote the show. Just Shane who volunteered to select the hotel and get the reduced room rate, plus a handful of people who are posting about the show here on the Audio Circles.

I suggest the exhibitors start posting information on all the forums about the equipment they will be exhibiting. It's also a good idea to respond to others' posts about the fest. Here's a link to a topic I started on the PE forum four days ago that drrew only one response and is now out of sight on page three. http://techtalk.parts-express.com/showthread.php?t=217424

That's a good idea for exhibitors to start talking about it and refreshing posts. 

I put the list of exhibitors and time, location, etc., on Audiogon last night and this morning there are couple of responses.  Question:  Will there be signage of some kind in the lobby?  Will there be a hostess?  Will there be a sign-in log book?  An open bar?  I'm kidding about the last one.

Here's the response I just made to the two respondants on Audiogon:  "Swanny-  See you when you get there.  You, too, Sebrof.  The exhibitors will all be located closely together in a wing of the hotel.  Just ask the front desk for directions.  Or, follow the music!  Invite a friend, too."

Thoughts . . Enjoy The Music and Positive Feedback are places where announcements could be made in the future.  Maybe one or both of them would send a contributing editor.

I wonder if we would have any luck inviting the area radio stations to drop by and get them to mention the show?
