Today was move in and set up for vendors.

Lou and I had a bit of a late start. Once we finally arrived at the Marriott, there were a few changes in how the hotel dealt with the exhibitors. We had to leave our ID with security while we were moving in gear. The freight elevators had some glitch where only one of two would move at a time.

We did have quite a bit of help, including PEZ, so it really did not take too long to put all the gear in the room.

Lou has his speakers showing in two other rooms. Lots of boxes to store.

We had Rod of Soundings, local hi-fi store, in to do a Master Set speaker position. Very interesting theory. It really improved the low end response and integration of the speakers to the room.

After initial set-up we starting changing cables, room treatment position and some gear.

What we ended up the night with was to add in my modded EE DAC in place of the AMR transport DAC. In our opinion the modded EE was the way to go.

Please stop by tomorrow and let us know what you think.

I was there when they changed out some cables and added Wayne's modded EE DAC. Bringing the modded EE DAC into the system really improved the clarity, detail and tonal balance of the system. The bass was a little boomy with the AMR DAC, but smoothed out nicely with the modded EE DAC. The room sounded really good tonight :thumb:

I'd be very interested in seeing a pic of master set from the sweet spot and the back of the room.

Good luck at the show, Wayne.  Hi pez.

I'm probably not as hung over as Arthurs, but didn't get much sleep, so my focus need adjusting.  Will take some photos today.

Just arrived. I've seen a ton of ACers already and have started wandering around. I will be posting periodic updates. Trying to go strictly iPhone and iPad for the whole show. I will occasionally pull out the DSLR to take some quality pics with. Looks like it's going to be a phenomenal show this year!

Show director Marjorie attending to last minute changes before the show officially opens. She's the best :thumb:


Lou Hinkley's flagship room (1030) before adding the Galibier TT (his speakers are in 4 rooms this year). The speakers were Master Set by Rod Tomson (Soundings Hi Fi). The left speaker is 22.5" from the wall behind the speakers and the right speaker is 24.5" from that wall.



Dan Wright's room featuring, among other goodies, his new LS-100 line stage with phono and the Daedalus DA-RMA speakers.



Back to the show, more later
