    East Coast LHS Social Event is NEXT Saturday!

    Was out doing yard work and such today - too many dog-gone leaves!

    Doors open at 10AM - after breakfast but we'll have coffee and such if you want to bring bagels, we'll have a tub of whipped Philly for morning nibbles.

    Around 3 or so we figured on firing up the grill for burgers'n'dogs and such - folks can bring a side or desert for that ...

    Figure its all pretty fluid - lot of folks have dropped maybes but not sure who is coming from the North end ... or if the southern crowd is coming -

    I've sent emails out to most of the local folks I could remember - anyone I left - just PM me!

    Of course, Wilfredo is quite welcome - as is Dhar, and Steve, if they can find the time ...

    I'm currently sitting on 2 pairs of Smith horns (walnut and JBL grey) plus short horns and long horns and the 2420s to rotate around.
    If anyone want to bring a 2441 or 2 we could do an A/B with the upstairs pair of L200-plus speakers.

    Hi, Heather,

    This sounds like it will be yet another fine JBL get together! If there was even a remote chance of making it, Sweet Bride and I would be there in a heartbeat!! Darn it, too many miles, and not enough time or money, right now. Have fun, and I'll eagerly await pics and after-action reports!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    MidAtlantic Lansing fun fest! - Sat Nov 14th

    Okay - original plan was to start at 10Am to give one of the weekend workers a chance to have some time before he had to run for work, but - he can't make it, so there's no reason to start that early - everybody else seems geared for afternoon hours ... that's cool too!
    (we can forget the bagels and mornin' fare ...)


    So - new event time is 2-8 PM or so ... so far, it sounds like a small crowd of half dozen or so - and this is a small house, so that works fine (grin) ...

    You want to bring chips or a salad or desert or some such? That would be great.

    We'll provide meat and bread/buns - around 4 or so we can fire up the grill and sizzle some meat or steak or whatever.

    We raked the yard over the weekend, but this rain has brought another load to the ground - we'll just deal with that as it is!

    If I don't know you're coming, please give me a heads up so we can have enough food for all. If you need directions/specifics just send me a PM

    Hope to see you all here (hope it doesn't rain!) ...

    Wow, its like you are RIGHT HERE - but actually, you just left!

    Yep, the event has just ended - due to flu bugs and funky weather
    it was a smaller turnout than expected -
    none of the long distance travelers from points north, west or south ...

    Don was here earlier and ran off with the grey 2397 horns (thanks Don!)
    - Steve, Mark and Wilfredo came later and stayed for music and food -

    Good music and good conversation!
    Lets do it again before too much time passes!

    thanks!

    Hi Heather,

    thanks so much for hosting the East Coast LHS Social. I have all the volkswoofer parts I mentioned, just let me know when it would be a good time and I'll be happy to drop the off.

    I guess I am the next one to host an event, so I'll start planning and send out some possible dates after the thanksgiving holiday

    take care, wilfredo

    You folks have a great group that seems pretty capable of getting together on a reasonable basis.

    I've never been able to get more than three LH guys to my place at once, and that was part of a larger group, the LA Home Theater Group. Eventually, I guess many of them will stop by in ones or twos, but it sure would be nice to have some Lansing fans as a group sometime.

    Ah well, have a great time and consider me slightly green.
    Out.

    I'll be thinkin' of y'all while I'm stuck down here in the South hawkin' cars.

    Otherwise I'd happily bring along this thing I just won in a sales promotion for h/k auto sound systems. It arrived today. I believe it may have been originally sold as a JBL product before they turned it into an h/k toy.

    We just chased the last of them away ...
    Sadly, Mark and Sharon got away before Emma reminded me to take pictures (D'ohh!)
    But Emma did take this of 4 of us 'round 5PM ...
    Emma cooked up 2 kinds of Chili, Steve Volmer brought 2 kinds of delicious beer, and cornbread, & Wilfredo brought the most amazing Flan!


    I did get the L200 -Plus 3way speakers rolled out and in place -
    Like I said in another thread here - I forgot just how nice they sounded!


    The upstairs room was pretty packed with the Magneplanars at the far back edges -
    The JBL L200-Plus speakers were more towards the center, and neatly in front of them,
    Dahlquist DQ-10s (and their crossover & sub off to the far right).
    I'd recapped the Dahlquists - so they sound a lot better than when I first heard them last summer.

    Basically we did a lot of A/B comparisons between the DQ-10s w/sub and the L200plus 3ways ...
    which I think won every time! Guess I'll be putting the DQs up for sale in a few weeks!

    We did hook the maggies up briefly at the end -
    tho I did leave the DQ crossover and Subwoofer in place to help them ...
    I played Sinatra's - One for My baby - amazing song & recording ...
    its from 1958 and Frank is right in the room with you!

    I still don't really like the maggies - tho Emma loves them ...
    hopefully someday she'll let me sell them!


    Anyway, the upstairs sound offenders ...
