    I know Brett who used to run the Audio Associates repair shop in Falls Church, and Corey from Music Technologies, And heck...I used to work at Needle in a Haystack. Got a buddy in Opal who has some nice stuff too. Maybe Veterans Day weekend ? Surely during the winter...But My Pellet Stove can be a little annoying in the cold winter because of its blower fan.

    Brett's current shop is directly above the one John was referring to FYI

    I've never bought anything from Command but they're nice guys, no problems demoing stuff there is no way I can afford, they almost got me for an AR turntable that someone had traded in but I resisted :)

    I'd like to hear about it if someone sets something up.

    I'll second that about Command AV. Wish I could afford their gear!

    I was by there once - great stuff but I was cash-poor at the time ... tempting stuff, for sure ...

    I "worked" @ Belvoir on an as-needed (read: as-summoned) basis in the early 1980s.

    As for locating "DMV" folks, try Sacramento, California. :smoke:

    ok, I have my MC2100 getting some work done by Brett. When I pick it up, I will ask both if they are up to a gathering. Brett picked up some space across the hall from his spot and this looks like a demo room. He had several pairs of Quads on display, fwiw.

    Spoke with Jon at Command Av. Sounds like they would support a gathering. Jeff is away and we will confirm on his return. Let me know if you all prefer a non commercial event.

    What's the difference between events?

    getting together at Command = commercial vs one of our places. Depends if we want to compare/demo our gear vs. listening to what Command has. They are hosting a Hegel event this Wed night and plan on more of those according to Jon.

    How do you rank your receivers? That is a nice list in your sig.

    Thanks for the clarification re get-together and for the kind words about the fruits of my addiction.

    Right now, the Pioneer probably ranks first. I recently had it recapped and was blown away by how it sounds.

    Gong to have to Google some of the units in your sig as I'm not familiar with them.

    Herndon here, Falls Church native and I've know Brett for years, coincidentally just met Corey at Music Tech and will be taking him an analog console to freshen up. We've done a number of get togethers large and small over the years, all were fun. Where were you guys when I was selling my 4435s? Some poor guy from NC had to drive up and get 'em.

    Now that the cooler months are here, I'm spending some quality audio time, let's do it!

    Fairfax here. Met a lot of fine folks here and made some friends at the AK get-togethers at Jim and Rick's houses. Can't forget James (Similost), who got the ball rolling for getting us together years back.
    Finding good stuff and good deals on CL around here is about two percent of what it was just 7 or 8 years ago. I've got tons of stuff that I'll give away eventually.
