UIL competition, it's a high school state wide thing in Texas, but there are PC meets all the time, most colleges have PC clubs...

Having a hard time picturing a computer science meet. Do they have speakers on networks and processor design or something? Or overclock their computers and run benchmarks?

I see I'm spotted for 2 table spots.  If we really have the room I'll be more than happy to pack up my vinyl kit and spread out that extra bit, I just don't want to get my 'budgetphile' turntable in a spot someone else could use.

Hey now.  I'm a programmer... I've been to those types of meets.  Generally they're more 'hackathons' where you combine yourself into teams and try to build something (within a given set of guidelines) as fast and well as possible.  At the end you present what you've done and prizes are awarded to the best.  I've seen actual companies be built out of those type of events.  It's entertaining a different way.

Yes I planned for you to have your turntable.

I might need a slightly larger than average space.  I've just acquired a Super7.  So I'll have a laptop, dac, phonitor and s7.  The latter two have a decently sized footprint.

Ok I will probably swap you and mcdevin since gopanthers has minimal gear you can use a bit more space than normal. Did you buy CEETEE's S7?

I could also give you a full table if you need by moving gopanthers to soundfreaqs old spot and moving mcdevin to you old spot. You would take 35-36.

Actually yes, lets do that. I will make the adjustments when I get home and post an updated chart.

No, after he beat me out on that BA, I did offer to buy his S7, but he said he wanted to keep it a while for comparison.  The upgrade fever took hold, so I just bought one new.  I hope I don't like the liquid glass much more than it at the meet, I might have to sell both and buy one :P

LG's really good. You might just want to stay away from one instead of hoping it's not much better. :)

Well I will just have to listen to it to decide!

Will be good to have some EC in Texas. How are you liking it so far vs your Phonitor?
