    Default LSAF - Lone Star Audio Fest 2012 - May 4 - 6

    http://lonestaraudiofest.com/

    Details forthcoming, stay tuned!

    Update - My good friend Chris Sommovigo will be cabling the room with Black Cat Cables. Those who attended CAF might remember him, he was right across the hall from the Polk room Mark was running - AND he's promised some goodies to raffle off to those in attendance!

    Update - Talked to some more friends in the industry and Marc Phillips and Colleen Cardas (exclusive US importer of Unison Research), and they are going to provide some STELLAR back end gear for the Polk room! We shall be tubed ala Unico!

    Update - Confirmation of Polk LSiM 705's being shipped down tomorrow to start break in, plus some cool raffle items and freebies! Rumor of a special guest making his 2nd appearance in Texas for the event - nothing confirmed yet, but if it goes through he'll be signing 8x10's for his fans.

    More to come!

    Cheers,
    Russ

    Russ, if Polk is setting up a room this year and you need some help, give me a shout.

    Hmmm... embassy suites again. That's 5 minutes from my house, so I don't have much excuse not to show up.

    Got confirmation from Polk HQ, it's definately on. Working on getting some really special gear this year for the back end rig - FAR out of my measily budget!

    That's awesome Ron, we'll have to have a mini meet after and give it a go. I'm giving Colleen Cardas Imports exclusive use of Unico gear in the room for the show (as updated above).

    Googled Unico, that looks like really sweet gear and probably out of my price line....this will be exciting. Coleen sounded pretty stoked about the line

    Initial post updated, full speed ahead, this is going to be a GOOD one. Be there. Make it so.

    As an aside, I've been talking with Wayne as we organize this grass roots show - and there is going to be a must be present to win raffle sometime Saturday afternoon, and guests will have a ballot box to vote for 'Best in Show', for their favorite room. The winner gets nothing more than to proudly wear that badge until next year.

    Cheers,
    Russ

    Tried calling you a few days ago. I picked up some RT55's with the CS1000p and had to fill up a few miles away from your house. I was going to see if you wanted to spend some time with the bookies again since they won't see time in my system and I'm in no real hurry to get rid of them.

    That would be cool, I actually have always wanted to do a formal side by side with the RT7's.

    Russman, interested in your thoughts on the 707's vs 705's once you get them.

    Thanks

    The 705's are here, but they are getting nothing but break-in until the show. I doubt I will listen critically until I have them at the show, and on some gear they deserve. That being said, I will post my honest thoughts on them for what it's worth.

    Cheers,
    Russ

    Can you recommend a nice amp for the 705's? Looking for some different for mine.
