I will be there and am very much looking forward to your rooms. I think the Eastern Electric pairing should be excellent. I have really liked their gear.

Excellent! I know you loved the Aurora in Chicago Roscoe, unfortunately it won't be in Detroit because I'm evaluating new tweeters for it ... being used to the RAAL makes everything else sound boring :) But I think I've found a tweeter that gets us closer to the 'life' that the RAAL brings to the table, and that will work perfectly in the waveguide.
My name is Ryan btw, please come and say hi.
The Eastern Electric/Vapor room will be hosting a little late night listening session if you stop bye and want to hear some more a little later in the evening .Probably can't play it to loudly but I can't think of a better way to kick back and enjoy some music.
Please stop by and introduce yourself.
The Vapor Audio Breeze sounded better to me then the Cirrus. It was probably due to a bigger room with some minor room treatments and being driven by better electronics.
The Good-Audio Note-Best sounding room!
The Bad-Tyler Acoustics-Why the hype?
The Ugly-David Michael Audio-Decided to take Sunday off?
The veneer on th Cirrus was beautiful. I can't imagine not being pleased with it. I think the size of the room was ok, but you are correct in that it could have used tratment of the first reflection points at a minimum. Ryan had the first reflection points treated in the room with Breeze, Aurora, and Arcus. It made a significant difference, mainly due to the high frquency capabilities of each of the mentioned speakers.
Ah, I wondered why somone mentioned that they were surprised David Michael didn't show. I saw them on Saturday. They were very displeased with the sound of their room. Both being very bright and not giving them the bass they normally expect from the Harbeth they were showing. Even with those issues, I did think the Harbeth sounded great.
Sorry I missed you there. I also think that not having AKFest last year, combined with all the new shows popping up affected the vendor turnout. On the flip side, I do like how manageable the size of AKFest is. No huge rush to see everything. Possible to revisit rooms without missing other stuff. But yeah, overall I would've liked to see more vendors there too.
