Count me in.  What can I bring? Beer, scotch, a hard drive of hi rez music, one of my many cheap chip amps and SLA's, my (soon to arrive) used hemp driver Omega Super 3's?

Thanks raysracing, I should have the beer & scotch covered!  I have a few chip amps sitting around, but the hi-Rez hard drive sounds good -- especially if I could borrow it for a little while! ;-)

Sunday Jan. 5th is good for me also.  Speedskating practice that day has been cancelled (something about a big hockey tournament).

The speedskating meet in Columbus this Saturday Dec.28 has been downsized to a practice meet and my grandson is playing in a soccer tournament this weekend (North Olmsted) so we are not going to Columbus.

Sounds great. I'll be there as long as I am not sick. Been out of town and sick as a dog.

FYI I am selling my speakers so if anyone wants to hear them before leaving the Heights area let me know. I'll get them set up before I head to the gathering.  Hit me up about them on email or PM. They are Tekton Lores.

The TV weather people are hinting at a big snow storm Sunday afternoon.

Way of topic:
The Olympic Short Track Speedskating Trials will be on TV this weekend. At NBC & NBC-SC (Sports Channel).
Most if not all the competitors have raced at the Cleveland Heights rink.

I am in Shaker and would also like to come. Was thinking of bringing my Parasound ZDAC to compare to something more expensive. Thanks.

Jon

(FWIW, I am seeing 3.5" of snow predicted by Accuweather for Sunday. I guess we will see how it goes.)

Johnathan if we cannot do it at this meeting I am game for a DAC shootout and I can host that. I am building a music server and hope to have a couple DSD files and a DSD DAC in a couple months as well.  Probably a cheap DSD Dac like the Schitt or iDSD (or whatever it is called).

I have four different DSD-capable DACs inhouse currently, and about 12 TB of DSD files (both stereo and multichannel) so I'm game for a DAC comparo (I dislike the term shootout but who cares I guess; it sounds like a quick and dirty test where there is ipsofacto one winner, that one DAC will win all aspects, which is not usually the case at all).

On Sunday's weather. Jeff Tanchak at Channels 19 & 43 thinks that during the day 3 to 5 inches (the higher amount on the West Side for a change). Then 6 to 10 more inches Sunday night.

ted I see ALL of this as a magical opportunity to listen to MORE music on more equipment, regardless I suppose of a clear winner. So for me it is all good.

Anyone running a PC Based music server? I could use another head in the game. I bought a chassis, core i3 CPU and as rock MB. I have quite a few more parts to buy and will need help installing drivers, getting everything recognized. I am a super fast learner, but lack the basic knowledge. Anyone game to help?

It will run Server 2012 if I can make it work with the motherboard, Win7 if not. Jriver media center.
