I've heard something about Slayer and a bass-heavy techno CD for stress testing.

Thanks for the gracious words Sean. It was a treat to have you over and I’d be remiss for not saying sorry again for taking so long. Also, thanks for the great beer, I hadn’t had a Chimay for years and it was the first time for the Dogfish Head 90 minute Imperial IPA. That was the most balance IPA I’ve ever tasted.

Sean covered the events very well. I was quite surprised how much time we spend talking before getting down to the serious stuff. As a result we ended up going a bit long on the time but it was worth it and warrants many more GTGs.

I liked both CDs we listened to but Ratatat was the clear winner for me. Since last night, I’ve acquired their discography to try out.

I did make Sean sit through demos of some music videos I downloaded form Youtube to get a feel for what I like to listen to and why I’ve set things up the way I have.

Sounds like you had a great time, Sean, but did it concern you at all when Dean instinctively grabbed a weapon during the battle scenes?


Wait till we demo “Saving Private Ryan” or “Band of Brothers.”

Charles you and other regulars are more than welcome to come visit if coming to Phoenix. Sean and I briefly discussed the possibility of co-hosting a GTG but no real details.

I wish we had more time and I can’t wait to hear his stuff in my room. Especially the M80s and M22s with a tube amp which I still haven’t heard.

The pleasure was all mine Sean. It was nice to show off my HT to someone who actually has experience with such things.

Cheers,
Dean

That's a good point. I haven't really been able to demo my system for anyone with a real passion for the hobby. Friends can appreciate my system, but it's not the same as sharing with someone who participates in the same pursuit.

I've only met one Axiom group member (RickF) and it was great. The funny thing is, as awesome as his HT was, I found it more enjoyable just to talk to him (and Jan and Boomer of course).

If there were ever a true Axiom get together I would find it interesting to do a true blind session with Axioms lineup to hear the differences. But really, for me, it would be all about the people and if I never heard an Axiom speaker through the time, it really wouldn't matter to me.

I forgot to mention that! I enjoyed the music selections you shared with me, and thank you for the links you provided. I do like the music!

It'll be fun to have a whole bunch of different speakers and combinations to choose from. Definitely looking forward to doing that.
