PLEASE EMAIL DIRECTLY TO ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED!!
Posts up here don't do much, since I check this thing about
once every 4-6 months... I gave up chasing people around to
make something happen several years back. So if you want
something to happen, help make it happen, and send some
emails this way!!
I'm planning a meeting here in August.
Probably SUNDAY the 24th, although the week earlier is possible too. I am located a few short minutes off Thruway exit 21B (just south of Albany and the Bershire spur).
If you think you *will be attending* or *not* PLEASE EMAIL ME asap.
Depending upon the replies received, I will adjust or alter the plan...
you can always email me from http://www.bearlabs.com
PS. I know this is short notice, but I feel that it is essential to seize the window of opportunity that exists at this time...
Ok things have slowed down here a bit, but I have an idea! I have been following the western NY audiophile thread and they have a good idea. I propose those who are interested get together and just have dinner some place in the capital district, we can talk audio equipment, music and just get to know one another and possibly make further plans for other meetings. I went to audio oasis last weekend and they were less then accomodating towards my proposal so I would prefer not helping them out when things start to pick up some steam- in fact they were very rude about it. They told me that Bear was there trying to do the same thing, and I was unaware of that- but any way.... A lot of us have spoke of line and made some plans and for one reason or another have not worked out- so what do you say to a meeting at a universal location to all of us? I will get a hold of you soon Bear and talk about this further since you seem very serious about making it happen as well. If your interested post here with any input you may have or email Bear or I directly. As I gather more information I will post it here so we have a point of reference. Thanks- Tim
Hello Vaporvr6, you are the only current poster! I live in Hoosick Falls, 20 mi east of Troy on the VT line(Bennington). Lets at least talk. I also just started a thread looking in the tristate area(Hoosick Falls NY, Bennington VT, Williiamstown MA, etc), to see if anyone up this way is interested in chating or ? I'll let you know if anything develops. Thanks for your time, Alan
I'm still alive... if any one cares ;) Hey Bear, if your still reading this I know you sent me an email a number of months ago, but I had a nasty virus and a lot of my outgoing mail never was sent I come to find out. Looks like we have a decent number of eastern-upstate NY audiophiles now. Those who are still interested in doing something try to post something here stating so by next week if at all possible.
Bill, thanks for hosting such a great event, it was a lot of fun - hope you had a great flight. Good music, people, system and food what more can anyone ask for. Jacko, it was great to meet Glen and yourself. Rudy, after several years it was great to finally put a face with the voice/text :) I will have a link to the picture shortly.
It was certainly a fun time!!!!!! On audiocircles there is a dealer who specializes in tube electronics and high efficiency speakers in Binghamton who would like to host a get together in May with NY Audio Rave and is inviting others.
ANNOUNCE: Meeting here.
Ok, I'm making a preliminary announcement of a "meeting" here at my place. It will have to be *after* April 15 for two reasons: tax madness and I am helping a family member move, which is an impossibly long and drawn out process (anyone got a big van or truck??)... I'm thinking that SUNDAY afternoon/evening is likely to be best (used to be a time people could handle). So, that's April 23, 30, or May 7th or 14.
Please EMAIL ME, no matter what you all discuss here on audiogon, with your preferences?
I'm prepared to spend the whole day doing audio and nothing but audio. You can bring stuff, CDs, gear, cables, whatever... or nothing. We can all throw in and get some good Chinese take out for snack or dinner, if y'all want.
I'll have a bi-amped horn system up (you can drive the top end with small tubes no problem) and an ESL - so any amp can be run no matter what the power level. We can sub in speakers if anyone wants to lug such things...
Because of the VTV show in NJ, I will have to limit my get together to Sunday May 7th. FOr those interested, I have the large 98dB Usher D2 horn speakers on display as well as many other higher-E speakers. The Daedalus DA-1 are still here at 96dB with some other fun stuff.
You can check these pieces out at www.responseaudio.com
If I can get enough interest, we will set the date (and I will clean the place up).
Interested parties can email me at Response34@aol.com
OK DUDEZ!! Mini meeting open to interested folks...
At my place June 30th. That's a Saturday.
YOU MUST EMAIL ME IF YOU WANT TO COME BY!!
What we'll be doing - Listening on wide range horns w/15"midbass and Quadripole subs, and likely also Altec A-7X modified and rebuilt by moi, w/803 horns, leaving for a new home shortly... talking about circuits, equipment and stuff... doing some electronics things in the lab (maybe).
Al Rauchwerger of Virtual Image will be here with some of his goodies.
You may bring CDs, and ANY GEAR you'd like to hear inserted into the system!
The place here is in flux and half-life decay, but we'll still have a good time even if no one who reads this shows up... but I figured I'd make a good faith post here...
Remember: email me: bear at bearlabs dot com
Had a great get together!
Waveman, myself, Al, Pablo & Rick (their real names) were there.
Extensive cable swapping, interconnect and AC, two transports, Waveman brought an over-the-top build preamp, Rick brought a tapped xfmr passive preamp and a DAC... auditioned and listened for hours... magnificent!
