    Default Another North Texas meet

    It's been a while since we had a local get-together so I'm going to be the catalyst and get it started again. Last time we had one planned it really didn't pan out. That's not going to happen this time.

    Date: July 20. If this turns out a flop for most, we can move it to July 27. July 6 and 13 is out of the question.
    Time: Just show up. We can say 1-2 PM, but you're free to come anytime. BYOB
    Location: Off Hwy 380, between Denton and McKinney. Actual address to be PM'ed/emailed closer to date.


    I'm going to reach out to Jim, Rob, and a few other guys that are MIA and try to get them back on the scene. Bring any gear you want. We have room to set up two different systems (including mine) with ease. I'll obviously be showcasing my new Shuguang monoblocks/pre, and hopefully doing so with pride. Any Polkie is welcome and so are your friends. If you end up staying late and having too much, well, I have couches for that. All I care is that its a good time for all.

    Have a few guys coming who haven't posted or aren't forum members. This should be a decent gathering. I've still got to reach out to a few MIA members but think it'd be cool to see some new faces.

    Damn ..... Skip ......

    I'm sorry I won't be able to be there. I'm in El Paso that weekend and won't get back till sometime on Sunday. I would have loved to hear your new system and put the TVC on it just to see what you think. Would also have liked to hear and see the changes you've done to the listening / HT room. It's nice of you to host another event. I am free the 27th, should the day change.

    Anyone interested in a set of SDA 2Btl speakers? I'll bring them up next Saturday if anyone would like to get them. They were rebuilt as listed below, and have enough hours for break in, but that's about it. They went into storage when I replaced them in my main system with the SRS II's.
    These SDA 2B speakers were upgraded to tl about 3 years ago.
    Upgrades include:
    Replaced the SL 2000 tweeters with RDO-198-1 Tweeters
    Crossovers rebuilt and upgraded to TL using all Sonicap Caps and Mills resistors.
    Larry's Retainer rings installed on Mid Woofers, and Passive Radiators
    Larry's Retainer brackets installed on Tweeters,
    Installed Vampire Wire BPHEX/CB Binding posts.
    Dynamat Extreme installed on MW and PR
    Mortite installed on all drivers and PR.

    The costs for just the parts and crossover rebuild were $638.24 3 years ago
    Would sell for $500 cash HOWEVER, the right speaker side panel has come off. The panel is not warped but it needs to have the old glue removed and be re-glued on. The cloth is in good shape, but is loose on one edge, so needs to be re-taped on with a good double sided tape or some kind of adhesive. It also looks like the left speaker is going to have the same thing happen to the left side panel. So, if you are good at doing this kind of thing, and want these speakers, you can have them for $400.00 cash. Includes the pin blade interconnect cable.

    I know a few members are coming that haven't posted here, but if you are on the fence about it, please give me a heads up so I can send you the address. PM is going out to all that haven't been here before.

    I'll be there. Can't wait!

    The only piece of equipment i presently own that's worthy of bringing out is my SC-37. I'm gonna leave it at home unless someone is just dying to hear it.
