Gary, Gary... That special something is progressing slower than I'd like. It will be working this year but not in time for this meet.

I'll bring my Kit 1 amp (hopefully Eric will have his Moth healthy by then ), along with a variety of headphones.

Oh man...This meet is gonna be a K1000 fest with potentially 4 different speaker amps to play with.

If it wasn't so darn heavy, I'd love to bring my Melody I2A3. I've been meaning to sell it, but I hear it makes a killer K1000 amp. Maybe one day.....

Sounds like a great setup for my first time listening to K1000's then

OK, guys, here's the deal on clubhouse rules. I would not feel comfortable having any food/drink in the main room (the Great Room), since that is where all the precious equipment will be. Moreover, if I "serve" food, we must also rent the entire professional kitchen facilities, which doubles the rental cost. (And if I am serving alcohol, I need to provide a $1m rider from my homeowner's insurer, so that is definitely out.) Therefore, no food/drink in Great Room, and no serving of food or drink allowed.

However, there is an adjacent room (the Board Room) with a long table, chairs, etc. I will rent that room too, for R/R between the intense listening sessions and copious note taking. If anyone happens to bring along a pizza and their favorite beverage, that would be OK since no one would be serving it. Perusing the massive contract I have to sign, I don't see any provisions against snacking by guests.

But here's the deal. I am trusting everyone to be, well, relatively neat. In addition to the rental fee, I have to put up a $500 deposit, which they cash, and then send me back two weeks after event minus any deductions for damages, carpet cleaning, etc. So please everyone treat the facility as they would a home they are visiting. Example, bringing a pizza and beverage to share = OK; setting up a margarita machine or fondue dipping pots = not OK.

That is probably more than you all need to know. But hopefully it answers the food questions.

It's a good group of people, leichnitz. Everyone was very responsible at the last L.A. meet and I'm sure everyone will be considerate here, too. Thanks for doing this.

I wish my Beta22 would be ready in time but what I'm doing with the chassis is going to be beyond any Beta22 ever built, so it's going to take money I won't have all together by meet time. I'm hoping to have it done by Xmas though. The board work is basically done though. I'll probably have to sell the Phoenix first to fund most of it.

Would you be able to use that separate room for the K1000 rigs? They really need a quiet place, otherwise, they're no better than average as they offer 0 isolation. From what I learned from the last meet, nobody ever use the spare room so it'll just be wasted.

Phil! Where's the faith in the Phoenix?

Maybe you should put the K1000s in the great room, and everything else into the spare room

That is totally up to you. I haven't been to a meet before, so I will defer to the wisdom of those who are more experienced. I think it is a good idea to limit food/drinks to one room. If you are comfortable setting up your K1000 rig in that same room, there will likely be sufficient space and I would have no objection.

As the date gets closer, I will post dimensions, etc of the rooms and we can make more precise space plans.

Then I eager look forward to the next next meet when your B22 is done.

Also, do you mind PMing me your estimated price of the entire build?

I was planning on running my own magic bullet infomercial.

From Phil's description, particularly of the chassis, I wouldn't be surprised if it's close to ONE MILLION DOLLARS!

It's actually......*drum rolls*......ONE BILLION DOLLARS!
