I am bringing at least two pairs of Polks.... Maybe three. I am for sure bringing my SDA 1C and a restored pair of RTA 12C. I bought the 12's new right out of Grad school. These were the first serious speakers I owned. I also might bring a more modern pair of LS90's.

Two weeks from now I will be there setting up!!

I am bringing my Van Alstine Tube FET hybrid pre-amp to try with the new CF amp! I really like this preamp, I recently bought used from ArJim (Jim Clark).

I’ll be bringing tools, I am thinking I’ll be bringing a variety of coffee too!

I’ll be bringing some favorite LPs as well!

This can all change depending on how my knee heals after my surgery last monday!

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

I'm bringing my main man, max, this year. He's looking forward to spending time chilling, long walks, and Harry's breakfasts.

Also bring tons of snacks. Quitting smoking via vape, so expect a little bit of an attitude as well lol.

Just a little heads up, you'll want to knock first at 10 unless you're carrying steaks and scrambled eggs.

Bring them all! I'd love to hear every one of them with the preamp we are bringing and your DQ-20's.
It will be a treat to hear, whichever you bring. ;^)

"Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision. The great creators—the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors—stood alone against the men of their time. Every great new thought was opposed. Every great new invention was denounced. But the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered and they paid. But they won."
Bob Carver belongs in such company as these.

have to wonder how the new amplifiers will sound behind the Lucas Labs pre? I'll betcha pretty damn good.

on another note, I fit the M3s in the car....barely. Considerations.

Cabin 12 may be silicone free.
