I didn't get the chance to get around much. Regrettably, I usually can't visit the rooms as much as I'd like at these shows because I'm busy manning my own room. However, I did go to dinner Saturday with everyone and found myself back at the Found Audio room afterwards, so I got a chance to check it out. It's handbuilt stuff, nicely done.
There were a couple systems setup. One was a small bedroom system with single driver speakers that were very detailed. The other was a larger system with an incredible turntable. It sounded really great but was limited by the speakers, in my opinion. Next year, he'll have to get different speakers because the rest of the system was fantastic. You have to see and hear the amps and turntable sometime.

Shane, Thanks for the kind words. I fully understand the cost of youngsters. Funny thing is they never seem to go away. Both of my daughters have moved back to the same town I live in now. Kind of nice though as one has two really cute daughters herself. BTW they both like music.
I second the vote for Bruce's OddWatt amps. Great sound, great bargain. I was quite impressed. Check 'em out.
Remember the Stoetkits, anyone? These are even better, no kidding.
Another must is Uriah's Lighter Note. That thing is freaking awesome. Not only is it dead black quiet, but now it has a multi-input switcher and groovy-cool remote.
I don't normally post personal opinions of other people's rooms or gear. But I have to bend the rules for those guys, 'cause you just gotta know - Put them on your short list of things to look into. For sure.

Very fortunate to be able to spend some time Sunday afternoon-evening in the Found Music suite with Scott & Brenda! Scott was very gracious with his time and vinyl collection. I continue to be amazed at how much a 1 watt SET with a good vinyl source can offer. Hope to see Found Music again next year!!
