Discussion in 'AK Fest 2004' started by botrytis, Feb 22, 2004.
I want to thank my wife, Gloria, for her great photography skills.
This is a picture of Mrs. Kam, Tin Ear, and part of the Grumpy Clan.
JonTee in In BrianB's room. BrianB the hardest working AK member - got in at 2 AM and setup until 6 AM. Broke down the room after 4:30 PM and drove back to Bloomington, IN that night.
BrianB adjusting the Cain and Cain Abbey's. If you have never seen these speakers - the workmanship is amazing!! Ski is also in the picture.
The PunkerX rig. All I can say it WOW!!!! Those Ohm I's are amazing!! These speakers would give Thor's rig a run for it's money!!!!
PunkerX, Echowars, Leestereo, and another member (sorry I can't remember your name).
The Buggtussel room. Dr. Buggtussel is on the far right.
Bot did you get a pic of the Almarro's?
Echowars getting his award. It is Echowars, Grumpy, Kamakiri, and Wardsweb.
No, I didn't but Ward did and will post a picture of them. They are beautiful, Mike!!!!! A picture will not do them justice.
Bot did you get a chance to listen to the Almarro's?
Pro,did you get the Almarros delivered?
Nope Alan, Brian had no room at the inn for them.
That's why I wanna see the pics of the ones in black.
Grumpy's Ohm F speakers (one really). I have never heard the Tandberg Studio Monitors sound better!!
A picture of the door prize table!!!
I wanted to thank Bauhausler for the use of his tube rig. (Actually for letting me take it over, in reality I was a rig hog!!!!
It was great to do a speaker comparison - his Rogers LS3/5A's with my Rogers LS2's and my Royd Envoys. It was an interesting English speaker shootout!!
We should really set a local British speaker comparison in the near future - any takers??
Maybe we should start setting up small local AK events - any other comments???
Mike, I did listen to the Almarro M33A's hooked up to the single ended 5 wpc integrated, Almarro A205A. Amazingly full sound from such small speakers, two 4" neodymium magnet drivers. Briefly heard some full orchestra being played thru them, lots of detail and smoothness (no crossovers?). I think you will be pleased.
A great gathering of audio nuts this was.... Grumpy, Kam, Wardsweb, BrianB, people who brought their own equipment, the wives who helped out, on this event deserve great accolades for a job well done.
Bot, I'll take you up on that British speaker challenge with a pair of vintage Wharfedale W70's and some American Sherwood iron . Local and regional gatherings (like Grumpy's fest) would be great...a good way to share our obsession.
That I heard from the modest setup Brian had with the Almarro's was very impressive. In some ways I preferred it to the "Abby System". I also think you'll be happy. I just added a photo in my thread. MikE
That is Dingus!!!
Thanks R2R - great to meet you and Mrs. yesterday!!
