Man, I leave for 3 days and miss some Spinal Tap references. "Smell the Glove" was a great album, but needed a different cover.

I'll still see what pans out for me, but I should at least be able to drop my STF-3 off and hang out for a bit before getting my kid to the rink.

I bought a cheap 4-speaker switcher from CC today. It won't be transparent but it should speed things up. It looks like it accepts 16 gauge...maybe 14. I bought some long sub cable too.

Woo hoooo! The 400 is here. Complete with a big gash down the side of the box and on top too. I wonder if it went to Alabama first before it came here.

I am not sure about getting the EP500 over to you guys, but the M3s are possible, do any of you work downtown during the day?

I don't work downtown, as you know but I could swing by to pick them up and if you give me the key to your house I could get the 500 as well. lol.

Pick a time and place and I can be there, fo rthe most part. PM me.

Jason and I talked a bit about the format of this and he made a good suggestion to keep this GTG casual and not get too caught up with measurements, etc. Just enjoy the music and equipment and relax. Does that sound acceptable to everyone?

I'm good with that. I'm really gonna be busy Sat, but want to come by and hear some speakers. I'll probably drop my STF-3 by and come get it after.

I just gave a friend of mine an in home Axiom audition, I went over there and took the M22s and VP100(he has a very modest budget). I brought my meter along to check his system as well.

I adjusted levels for his low end Pioneer and some much older JBL bookshelfs and B&W 204s(a recent aquisition). Once adjusted we unhooked the B&W and the JBL he was using for a center channel. After a year or so of my talk and his lurking here he finally got to hear what all my praise was about. He was amazed by the clarity and details. It was then that I told him the B&W's were in the wrong positions for surround sound he had them at the front by his 20yr old Cerwin Vegas but connected to L&R side surround connections, I believe his wife had some part in this positioning. I didn't have enough time to help him move things around but did give him extra wire to move things.

He came over to my house today to hear the big boys in action.

We now have a new Axiomite on our hands. I asked him to drop by Mojos on Saturday but he has to work. I am sure if we do this again maybe on a Sunday afternoon he might be able to pry himself away from the wife and kids for a few hours of sonic bliss.

That's hillarious. We were just talking this evening about people who set up their 5.1 system right beside their TVs because they don't know any better.
