Somebody needs to make an announcement at AVS forum.  You'll see where at the top of the index for topics.  It's a giant forum.  I can't do it.  Here, I hope to make it easy for you.  Just copy and zip this over there.  Make changes as you see fit:

I wonder if we would have any luck inviting the area radio stations to drop by and get them to mention the show?
Ok, I'll volunteer to contact the NPR affiliate and whoever else I can think of, the newspaper and the local TV stations.  I'll begin doing this on Monday.  Thanks for thinking.

If anyone would like to offer to write a report - or contribute to a group report - for the upcoming webzine, drop me a PM with your email address. It won't help for this year but will for next.

Sure, it's right here - http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=80230.0

I was hoping to get to "print" 1st May with a preview of LSAF, but since reality does after all rule, it's now going to be 1 June (or a few days before) for the inaugural edition with a report from attendees (hopefully)

I'd welcome any submissions or proposals for other articles as well.

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."
Hear ye.  Hear ye.  And I'm contacting Texas Monthly magazine, too.

Dear Jordan,

Your ears, eyes and pen are cordially invited to The Lone Star Audio Fest in Dallas on May 14,15,16- www.lonestaraudiofest.com/

Seriously, this is something that my colleagues and I want Texans to know about.  Many audio designers and manufacturers from all over will individually discuss and demo their high fidelity creations for attendees.  I’m sure you are aware of the CES in Las Vegas each year, the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in Denver perhaps, and The Audio Karma Fest in Michigan (just concluding).  Some exhibitors from those shows will be present, as well, and now Texans can learn and listen, and enjoy right here at home.  To see more about the exhibitors and this year’s location, just visit the site and click on Exhibitors.  Each logo that appears is an active link to their websites. 
   
There is no admission charge to attendees and everyone is welcome.  Lots of music will be heard coming from the wing of the hotel where LSAF exhibitors will be located.  Each exhibitor will set up and entertain in their suite.  A science teacher from Abilene, Scott Clark, is bringing the student and his or her winning speaker design from a class project since the semester began.  Professor Clark is also bringing speaker performance measuring equipment.   Audio designers and manufacturers are coming from as far away as Idaho and California.  It’s free, here at home, and fun.  Especially for Texas music lovers pursuant of highest quality sound and setting in home.  Most of the designers present sell direct to consumers eliminating middle men and dealer markups.   

We hope that you will consider this event for a upcoming feature in your magazine.  There is a larger audience for this than you might imagine.  The aforementioned shows draw people from outside the U.S.  Why not to our state.  Additionally, I’d wager that virtually all Texas audio and video enthusiasts at this level read Texas Monthly magazine, just like me.

Hope you can agree.  We would welcome a presence from Texas Monthly in any capacity.  Dinner at The Grape would be on us.
   
Thank you.  Please let me hear back from you at your convenience via return email or 281-468-3133.

Sincerely,

Jim Goulding
music lover, audiophile, and participating manufacturer

This will be my 1st LSAF.

I will be there with a home made open baffle rig.  Those of you who were at LSAF in 2008 may remember the Altec 605 coax + 18" woofer open baffle rig.
That will be in my room this year with a class-d amp on the sub and a lovely Grant Audio 300B SET on the mids, highs. (Thanks Rachel and Ian!)

Source will be a nice little Yamaha CD/DVD/DVD-A/SACD universal player.  Going toslink out to a home brew DAC.  I've burned a bunch of tracks to DVD-A format and keeping my fingers crossed that it all works.  :? Some of the tracks are 96KHz/24bit.

Please stop by and bring a few CDs.  See you there!

Just today I picked up the power conditioner and cables from Dave Stanard at Silver Circle Audio. Here's the link to some pictures of the system I'll be exhibiting.   http://fredt300b.smugmug.com/Events/2010-Lone-Star-Audio-Fest/12091834_fWkZR#859102825_J7fJm
