What--no pole? WTH? I thought this was all code for us all to get together for a night of rowdiness, swilling brew, and watching girls pole dance. If we're just gonna listen to music.....geez....I dunno.
The preamp is without XLR. I've got Triode Wire Labs interconnects, a TWL American 10+ Power Cord, and TWL speaker cables. If I time it right, I might be able to swing a home trial DAC like a Benchmark HGC or an Auralic Aries. Once we have the date set, I'll look into my options.
As far as I know, either the 15th or the 22nd will work fine for me. My friends from BC will visit the week before the 15th, so no Epos speakers for the GTG.
Carrot cake would be fantastic.
