    haha. Thought there were soccer plans. There will be plenty of drinks to make the rounds. The place is minutes from my work place, so I will be heading there after work on Friday.

    I actually have baseball from 10-noon and then a fundraiser around 7:00. I'll have to fit a lot of listening into the time between. I might have to try and make it out Friday night instead (or both).

    Wish I could drive down for the weekend, have to take 3 weeks off in July so couldn't get away in may.

    how much stuff do you all try to see ?

    I'd like to hear some "RAVEN" or "OddWatt" DIY stuff. Do they have so special deals on some stuff?

    Generally everyone goes off on their own and tries to hear what they can early on. We then discuss all rooms and make sure to visit the ones that stood out to others that we didn't hear.

    Last year I had a private 45 minute or so audition in the Raven Audio room. They had their amps paired with a music server (forget) and some GR Research LS9's. It was an excellent setup and quite the experience.

    Mark and I will be there again Friday thru Sunday this year. I'll have a couple headphone rigs set up again this year (different gear than last year) and we WILL be doing the Magnepan setup this time. His 1.6QR are all stock so we're going to bring those instead of my modded pair (my crossovers aren't fully installed yet so not as portable). I'm planning on the Magnepan setup in those rooms with concrete walls being an absolute nightmare, we'll see how it goes.

    I have better gear upstream so we'll be bringing my Oppo 105 and my Parasound Halo to round things out. The Parasound and Oppo both have balanced connections so I've ordered a pair of XLR cables. They're 'Better Cables' brand, seem to be the only thing really available at less than a couple hundred bucks for a short run that I can get my hands on by this weekend. I've never really critically tested the Oppo as a preamp, so we'll see how that goes this weekend.

    If anyone has a good set of balanced cables (XLR Male to XLR Female) that they want to loan me for the weekend that'd be great, otherwise I'll just go with the Better Cables, should have those from

    Danny, reach out to a vendor and see if they can bring a pair for you. Reach out to a few and see what it brings. No point in not trying to get those cable makers involved for the 2 days. Like Dan said, reach out to Doug. He might be able to bring a pair.

    Come on Saturday. Sunday is kind of a shut down/hangover kind of day. I might be able to help you with a DAC soon.
