Wayne, I have 3 sets of interconns from Black Cat, and pair of RT series Polk bookies for raffle, did we ever decided how to do this, are we just going live in the lobby, drop your name in the hat, and we draw in 10 minutes?

Excellent, Russ. I think the attendees are in for a real treat this year. Lots of goodies.

I brough a pair of two Pi tower kits and three ART T-Shirts to raffle too.

Last I heard about the raffle is what you saw in the emails yesterday. Steven is going to hand out some cards, we should encourage guests to fill them out and return them to the room host so they can be entered in the drawing.

I see the 'judging' etc has become more formal on other boards, which is fine, I thought we were doing a simple ballot for attendees to write down their fav room, to be announced at Sunday breakfast with the exhibitors?

Well, I don't know about all that. I just know Raven Audio donated some trophies and they and Stereo Clarity sort of championed a "Best of Show" event. Don't know how it's gonna be judged.

I'm just here playing some tunes, checking out Bruce's amps. I agreed to demo with his gear this year. So I'm just messing around having some fun.

I stayed up way too late getting setup. So I'm sleeping in tomorrow. But here's what I brought this year:

You'll notice the four π mains flanked by three π subs. Not surprising there. But what's new is I'm not running my usual amplification. This year, I'm using Oddwatt amps. That's what those two monoblocks are on the bottom shelf. I also have the remote control RDAC "passive preamp" mentioned at the beginning of this thread. It's the box up top with the "005" on the display.

This is another one of Bruce's Oddwatt creations. He built a prototype passive preamp based on my remote processor chip. The numeric display is his way of providing visual feedback on the volume setting. You can do it with a bar graph or any number of ways, or not provide a visual indicator at all. But any way you package it, I like it because it's just one single (wiperless) part between the source and the amp. No mechanical contact via potentiometer getting in the way.

Hi All,
I'm driving up from Austin and should be there tomorrow afternoon. I have a passive-pre I would like to compare with anyone elses pre-amp (passive or otherwise) if someone is interested in taking the time. I would value any expert opinions I might be able to get. You may know it as the Bent Audio TAP-X. They're not sold anymore but I bought the parts from John Chapman and put one together. I really like the sound of it but have never been able to compare it to anything other than the pre's I have owned. If you're not familiar, it offers remote controlled souce switching, volume and balance control. Volume control is via transformers from Dave Slagle. If no one's interested that's OK too. The fest looks like a good time.

Cheers
Phil

Man, this was an excellent show. I thought last year's show was awesome, but this one was even better. I almost hope the show will stop growing, because I think it's just right.

And now for the photos:
