Still, there were some upsides. No fighting the crowd and rarely much wait to get a seat to listen to a system or hang out and chat.
211 - Audio Thesis. One of the good sounding rooms. Many of them suffered badly from a big resonant peak somewhere around 80 Hz, but this was one of the least affected. Lucky, or good setup??
214 - 5one2 Audio. This might as well have been someone's living room. Great atmosphere, good chats and a well set up system. LSA-1s sounded great in there.
215 - Manzanita. I ws confused... Where were the Open Baffles. He had some great sounding box speakers this year - who'd a thunk it?
Trying to remember the rest, but these were high on my favorites list.
