May 13 – 14, 2011
Be sure to make plans to come by for a woodstock type audio show - not too big where you can't actually get a decent demo, but big enough to actually see and hear some worthwhile gear. Everything from DIY, full range, to high end. Solid state, tubes, vinyl, tape, cd and digital. Something for everyone and every budget. A great bonus to a grass roots meet like this is the people, moreso than the gear. Rub elbows with real audio nerds, and make friends along the way.
The Polk room will feature the new LSiM707 (yes, the big boy) powered by Jaton Corporation’s new high end cd player and preamplifier, and a pair of their new modular amplifiers vertically biamping at 280w per side. Also featured will be the Blackstone TL2 and TL3 series with DSW PRO 440 wireless subwoofer, and a Micropro 1000 will be on hand also. The Blackstone rig will be driven from a Virtue Audio integrated and cd player who is also exhibiting at the show (courtesy forum member Marvda1). All cabling is coming straight from Cardas, who went above and beyond to custom make cables, at the HQ in Bandon, Oregon just for the Polk room.
Mark your calendar and plan to be there. There will be a give away or two or three, and refreshments in the Polk room. Bring a stack of cd’s and come join us for a fun filled Saturday for FREE. The Polk room will be open Friday around noon for Polk Forum members and exhibitors if you truly want a first peek before the general public shows up.
An (open to forum members only) open house will be held the weekend after at my abode (I'll make a separate post). This will be an extended, weekend long, come and go as you please - your chance to get even more comfortable and spend however much time you want with the new LSiM. My listening room is open for you. I’ll post a separate thread with details in the next few days.
Thanks again for everyone that supports Polk Audio, and thanks to Polk Audio for supporting a meet like this – I and others agree it makes a real statement as to what Polk is about, and that they still remain grounded in the music, even after all these years. I look forward to seeing you at the show.
