Okay, My 2 cents worth. I thought I knew what I was doing trying work my way into a hi-
end system mostly on my own. I found out differently when I found the Dallas Audio Club
and North Texas Audio Jam (or whatever it's called nowadays). Definite learning curve;
now I'm still in "dreaming of an All-tube system" mode. I'd support meetings just to
listen to different setups and acquire other viewpoints.
I've only hosted one (1) meeting which turned into a rather large affair with 35 people
coming over bringing a multitude of DIY projects which we set up (if only for a short time)
in the rather large (if acoustically-challenged) living room. My system is geared more
towards 2-channel and Multichannel SACD/DVD-A and Hi-Def Home Theater with mostly
Solid State components; too bright for many of Y'all; even the 2-channel tubed Preamp I'm
experimenting with. Also, no vinyl (yet).
I'd be glad to host another such large meeting but you'd have to bring your own tubed
equipment/systems and vinyl setups, I don't have a 2nd system setup (yet), but I still have
a large, mostly empty living room to fill up and now an empty bedroom for a 3rd setup
and room to possibly shoe in a 4th setup. The downside is I'm on the West side of Fort
Worth so it would have to be a once in a blue moon affair. It'll be a catered affair as well;
last time we had to last minute order up seven (7) large pizzas on top of the food I had
originally prepared and we finished all of it (I even made a modest profit).
