    Speak now or forever hold your peace.

    So far with you being the exception leroy, no one else from the Chicago or WI area will be attending (or no one that has let Don know such).

    If you show up and then want to shoot them to the Chicago area that would be fine too, but we need to get this in gear soon.

    SCompRacer has scheduling conflicts so he wont be able to attend or pickup the speakers currently.

    I know there are folks from the IL area that really want to get their ears on the LSiM 703s. Let EndersShadow know so we can get the plan together. As of right now, unless someone speaks up, they are heading towards Ohio.

    Speaking of next weekend... We shoud start getting a final list together of who is definitely coming.

    I would also like to start thinking about food and who is willing to bring what food and drink wise. I will cover pizza for lunch if that works for everyone. Let me know if that is good. Is there a beer preference we can agree on? Sides? Looking for ideas....


    I am also curious what gear everyone will be bringing with them.

    Thanks!

    Quicksilver MidMonos
    MAC CuQ speaker cables
    Emerald Physics Interconnects (Same as Mogami cable used by 10Audio)

    I like beer . . . craft or good ol' bud light. Let me know about food. I can pick something up. My car is small and will likely be filled with boxes of gear.

    Darn, I would have loved to attend this but I have two major events next week that I must be at.

    I would love to check these out, would it be possible to send them my way? Im in Chicago, southeast corner to be exact, border with Indiana I'm literally 5 minutes from the Horseshoe Casino in Whitting). I would love to audition them with my gear...this is what I currently have in my main rig:

    LSi25's with 2 LSiC's, LSiFX's, FXi30's for the rear, and a PSW1000. All this powered by 2 Sunfire Cinema Grand Amps and a TGP-401 pre. I also have a couple of Technics turntables to listen to vinyl.

    Anybody would be welcomed to come over and I can also pass them on to Leroy or whoever when i'm done.

    I really wish I could have made the trip though...

    You are not too far. Do you need a ride, or just cannot make the time?

    Perfect! That is exactly the kind of mod I can complete! I have been paranoid to perform it, but I think the next %20 off sale, I am going to upgrade mine. Do you have the LSi schematics? I know they used to be on the sight, but they were taken down...

    I just can not make the time due to other family events happening that day, otherwise I would have gone.

    Thanks for the offer!

    Do not have the schematics. I did not need them. This thread here has good info and pictures: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...t=71515&page=2

    The parts list is also there.

    Starting to get excited. Got my FLAC files transfering to my laptop, downloading and installing Media Monkey as well.

    Don I realized something about my laptop.....its got a dedicated graphics card with a HDMI out.

    So we can hook it into your AVR and do everything that way so you dont need to mess with setting up your Squeezebox to do anything regarding my gear.

    Unfortunately, unless I pull the AVR up from the basement, or pull down the AVR from my bedroom, I have no HDMI inputs. In the 2 channel rig is an Adcom GFP-750 2 channel Pre, which will be back tomorrow! The Yamaha has no HDMI either.

    On another note, the home theater is probably not going to be cleaned up sadly for several reason. First, I have been working every day, at least 14 hours a day, for the past week... Secondly, I am working on selling a bunch of salt water fish tank crap and it is taking up all the room! Sorry guys! But we can try to bring up the other sub to demo if you would like, but I will need some help

    Dan, we will work it out... The squeezebox would probably be easier and better sound quality anyways. We will figure it out.

    No worries. I figured I would bring a USB HDD as well so if you found anything you wanted that I had you could just grab it from me off that.

    Works for me!!! I am really looking forward to Saturday!

    Do you drink? Beer or otherwise? I was just wondering if I should grab a couple brews or forego it...

    What about you Anonymouse?


    Thanks guys! Looks like right now it is down to you 2 and maybe 1 local guy. 3 other local guys have cancelled on me...

    Wife might like one or two. I myself am more of a Diet MD, or Smirnoff drinker (but like 2 or 3 max due to having Crohn's). I will see if she has any requests Beer wise.

    Don just to save myself some time, rather than picking up chips, soda, meat or veggie tray myself and bringing, I figured I would just give you like 20 -25 bucks to cover the cost of em and help a little on the pizza..

    Let me know if thats cool or if you still want me to pick them up myself.

    $ is cool. No big deal. We won't need much if it is just 6 of us or so.

    You prefer Diet Mountain Dew? Any other soda requests? Chip types? I might grab a couple 6 packs of some craft beers or something like that. Nothing crazy. We have a grocery store a few minutes from the house, so I might just have my wife run over there Saturday morning to pick up a few things.

    Last call for all polkies...... Tomorrow is dday.

    We will be demo'in the 703's against stock LSi 9's, and possibly modded LSi 9's.

    It really doesnt get any better than this!!!



    Plus later on, we might have a bit o fun in my car using a Squeezebox Touch & HRT Media streamer to see how much of a difference FLAC v. CD player v. Zune connected via 3.5mm to CD Player makes....
