GTG - Nov. 12th - Princeton NJ - Start Time - 1PM
« on: 14 Sep 2016, 12:32 am »

Time to have a RAVE with both Lampizator and GTAudio Works.  I am planning the RAVE a bit differently this time.  My primary system will remain identical initially and later we can start swapping equipment in and out of the setup.


Primary System Located in Basement


Speakers: Zu Audio Druid V
Amp: Triode Lab / Finale 2a3 SET (Sovtek / Shuguang 2a3, RCA/GE/Russian NOS 6sn7/6hc8, 5v4/gz32 rectifier tube)
Amp: Response Audio 3205 Extreme (el34/kt88/kt77/6550 power tubes, 12ax7 and 12at7 as preamp, phase splitter)
Amp: Folsom Audio 7297 DIY amp
Preamp: 4P1L DIY Preamp or Gary Dodd Unity 6H30pi Preamp
DAC: Lampizator Gen4.5 with DSD128 and 384K PCM
PC Audio Receiver: Either a Win10 or Linux system running Signalyst NAA (Network Audio Adapter)
Audio Music Player: Win10 based Signalyst HQPlayer converting everything over to DSD128 (the server has enough juice left to upconvert everything over to DSD256 or potentially DSD512)
CD/SACD - Pioneer Elite DV59ai


The second set of speakers will be in the family room and they are going to be GTAudio Works speakers.
I will let Fred (Gopher) or Rob provide information the Lampizator equipment that they will bring along and Greg @ GTAudio Works about the speakers and equipment that he will be bring.


Even though the event is listed in the Lampizator it is open to everyone.  Either send me a pm or post in the thread so I can have a head count.

If you have never been to our house please keep couple of house rules in mind - no alcohol or meat dishes will be served and please take off your shoes (feel free to bring house shoes/sandals).  You break the rules I end up in the dog house and no more events  :nono:


If you are looking for used CD/Vinyl you might want to stop at Princeton Record Exchange which is 10 minutes from the house and close to the Princeton University.

Thanks for hosting this event, Deepak!   I know well have a great time.

As far as what we will bring, I'll likely bring an Atlantic, as I know that's a piece people are curious about and also a new Amber and likely a Golden Gate.   We'll also plan on lugging over a Komputer or two.

Should be a great time.   I hope to see many of you there!

Looking forward to seeing everyone again.  I think the LI folks need to rent a big van and car pool :-).

As an update, I'm planning on one of the Atlantic DACs we bring balanced and having tube rectification and our new superclock USB upgrade.   We should be cooking with gas!    :thumb:

Funny coincidence.  I had virtually no experience with 4P1L tubes until Atlantic, now they will be in the amp and pre as well.   It'll be a 4P1L party, I guess!   :thumb:

Folks,

Change in plans.  Just heard from Greg @ GTAudio Works and he will not be able to attend due to other commitments on Oct. 22nd.

Time to look for another set of speakers if not we will use X-Statik's that I have in the family room.

Well since neither GTAudio and I can make it on the 22nd, I have a great idea to move it to another weekend... :)

I need to reschedule the RAVE from Oct. 22nd to Nov. 12th.  Hopefully folks who were planning to attend can still attend on Nov. 12th.

Unfortunately I will not be available for Shadowlights Rave that date either.
My wife is off for teachers convention and we are planning a long weekend.

For those interested in hearing the GTA3R's...I am about 90 min north of Deepaks home.
Please feel free to come over to give a listen anytime, bring your own gear if you like.
My door is always open.
