Harmon has  much easier access for sure. We just need to make sure that we get the larger room, although I'm not so sure that the
Harmon staff pays much attention to their reservations. One year the guys reserved the larger room, but the staff went ahead and
used it for something else, so we had to take the smaller one.

Yikes! I suggest coming the day before and posting a sign saying "Room Reserved <Date>, do not use"

Well, I guess I have been missing for few years already.
Will be very interested to attend.
Can I just pay the share and come to listen?
As most of my gears are old and none interesting, I will save ourselves with rooms for more interesting stuff.

By all means, show up and just enjoy the music- no gear necessary! We've been pretty reasonably packed the last couple meets. No doubt there will be plenty of interesting equipment to go around. In just a couple days, the library should be able to let us reserve the room(s)- stay tuned!

I apologize, but has a date been set yet? I may come from NM, and might try to do a long weekend in Sedona as part of the trip.

It is almost certainly going to be either September 17th, or if not then September 24th. Neither library will let us place a reserve on a room more than a few months in advance, so on the 17th of this month (in a couple days), we should be able to reserve the 17th of September. I imagine it'll not be a problem, since we'll be contacting them on the day those dates come available.

As for gear, it looks like my setup will be this (yes, lots of buying and selling and trading going on! What an addiction this hobby is):

Gustard U12 audio interface (I2s output)
Wyred4Sound DAC2 (vanilla, non DSD)
AudioGD Phoenix headphone amp/preamp
Sennheiser HD800 (balanced funch-made Cardas cable, tweaked carpet mod)
'Coolpants' modded Fostex T50RP (updated, funch balanced Canare cable)
Murano Audio P-200S class-D IcePower monoblocks > Grommes HA-600 (modded into Robinette Box by funch)

I'll likely have some variety of basic power components before the meet, probably from Emotiva (because affordable!).
