Not trying to rush you just wasn't sure if the drama on the other forum had scared you away. I'm pretty envious that you were able to attend such an event and wish something like this could take place in KC.

Re: SE Wisconsin Speaker GTG on April 14th

Uhhh, there were 2 guys that drove up FROM K.C.! At first, I was not sure if I should - but then I determined it would be a disservice to all the great people I met there if I did not.

TBH, I would love to have a more informal GTG when I get my room done - it is a really great chance to meet some very nice people. Nuance and Terry are just nuts - there were probably 20 - 25 people there! My wife would probably have a coronary if I had that many people over.....

Wow, that's a long drive. My job would make it nearly impossible to make that trip short of using vacation time. Being on call 24/7 really stinks at times. I'm sure it was a good time and I'd love to hear some different speakers. I'm very happy with mine but I'm sure there's much better out there. Maybe it's best I don't hear better for fear of more costly upgrades.

Guilty. To further prove your theory, I'd do it again this weekend if I could; it was just too much fun.

Re: SE Wisconsin Speaker GTG on April 14th

Brandon,

You indicated at the GTG that you had a chance to hear the Soundscape 8s at Jim's shop. Is this something that Jim normally does? I think I have narrowed myself down to a couple, but I would really like to hear these to decide if it would be worth continuing to save.

Thanks!

Joe

He happened to have just finished a pair of SoundScape 8's and had them set up in light of my planned trip to his shop. I'd imagine if you contacted him ahead of time and requested to hear some SS8's he'd try to accommodate based on when he had a pair available/complete. Just call and ask him; he's a great guy.

Thanks Brandon! Amazing how far off-topic that other thread has gone. I wish there was a way to create a thread and then have control over who had the ability to post in it.......

Re: SE Wisconsin Speaker GTG on April 14th

Where are comments on the speakers? How did you match SPL between the different speakers?

Seemed like way too many songs listed for so many speakers. I'd think parts of 3-5 songs ideal.

here's a bit different venue - but an opportunity to hear some speakers in KC.
