Hey Jason... I'm new up here too and I'm also in Southeastern CT too.....Milford to be exact.
Yes hello and welcome. Jason, your pit job at the (SUN or Foxwoods?) sounds like a good gig. I hope there is job security there with all of this broken down economy stuff going on. I guess we could say we are neighbors being it is a large nation or even larger world and we live about 70 minutes away from ea other.

Dave we are even closer. Six minutes at the most. I am now asking myself why no GTG's? :foottap: I 'd like to hear the PB-13.:T:hsd:

Hey Bailman,

... The tournaments aren't what they once were but I'm confident things will turn around soon. The only other option is a complete failure of the global economy. :gah:

70 minutes away? That's nothing! Wait a sec... that's drive down 95! I'll pass. I have NEVER made it from one end of the state to the other without some horrible delay on 95.

A complete failure of the global economy is the only other option? :T Yes it is a trek for sure.:huh:

Yes we are very close. Wow!....and I should correct myself from above when I said that I was from South Eastern CT.....more like South Western but since it's such a small state..who cares...right?
Yep thats exactly what I thought when I read it. I am located in the North End of Bpt. Close to ST V's.


The Ultra is really something special...and to think I haven't even dialed the thing in yet. Cannot wait!!! Gonna try REW once I get the external soundcard for my laptop.
Yes thats what I hear. I had two PB2+/2's but sold them. I wasn't happy with their musicality. They did dig deeeeep though.


So I've been procrastinating getting a laptop and running REW. Partly from fear and $$$. Any chance on a GTG. :wave: My wife claims I need friends.:rofl:

I guess the global economy failing is a little over the top but you never know.

What exactly would we do at a GTG? I used to have meets for a car club
But I'm unsure of an agenda for a HT meet.

Suggestions?

What would be done @ a GTG? How does this sound?

Eat, drink, discuss current system and set up, evaluate, tweak, discuss, reevaluate, drink, eat... re-tweak. :T


Basically have a hands on learning curve with Dave's PB13 and REW on my BFD @ his house which he could use till he gets his own. See... I am not totally ready to jump in the REW game. Again, I don't have the bravery to get started. Its overwhelming to me. Bringing my BFD while participating in the whole setup process will be a good remedy for my fears. Plus I get to hang with people who are are as nuts :coocoo: as I am about AV.

Wait!! What am I saying. Dave and you should come to my place so we can:
Eat, drink, discuss current system and set up, evaluate, tweak, discuss, reevaluate, drink, eat... re-tweak. :T He could get more familiarised with the REW. This will only be possible if Dave brings the REW stuff. If he doesn't then its just eat, drink, discuss about what could've been tweaked which leaves more time for eating & drinking .:devil:

So here's the deal....I have REW on my wife's laptop but I am dead in the water till I can get an external soundcard to actually use it the right way. Working on this...

I'm actually holding off on the BFD until I see REW results. While I'm not expecting a flat room there may be a chance that the BFD will simply not get me that much more. Then again... if there are dips and peaks all over the place then I will be on EBAY looking to buy in a heartbeat.

A few years ago I had a Definitive technology Supercube Reference sub in the back corner of my room so it was nearfield and I had the Velodyne SMS-1 on it...which was very easy to use. I did have some peaks and dips to tame with this sub..but I now have no SMS-1 and the PB13 Ultra is in the front right corner of my room.

Here's a link to my setup for anyone interested in a look:

:T I understand. This is the main reason I've been procrastinating using the REW program. I need to many other pieces of gear to use it at this time. In my case I only have BFD and I need a laptop, sound card, cables, Mic blah blah blah. Both of you not so snowy anymore CT members have some exciting stuff coming together.


I'd still suggest a GTG to critique each others systems down the road at sometime.:T

You were saying?

I woke up to rain today and concluded that I would not be sanding the birch plywood I cut oh so perfectly yesterday. I looked outside a little later and saw the ice pellets coming down and now I'm looking out at huge flakes covering the yard and everything else outside. :sick::thud::duh::gah: That should cover it.

I do have a fairly nice project coming together though. The corners of the room up front look nice, I'll try to post a pic before I leave for work in an hour.
No more winter wonderland though... right?
