Just wondering if there's is any interest in a meet for people in the GTA. I'm willing to host.

For pictures of my room, check them out:

Do you have a LITTLE problem with dust?Posted Image

Is this the big project you were doing??

I'm always in, this time I need to make sure I book the Saturday off or I'll probably get scheduled.

Let's hope more people look here, or we'll have to Email individually.

Yes, this was the big project I was working on. I've still got a bit of work to do, but it's mostly complete. It took me 6 weeks to get it done.

I'll let Wayne M. know about it as well. He might want to get involved. He's upgraded his system with new speakers and a new receiver.

As for dust, not really. There's an intake for the furnace inside the room, which keeps the room mostly free of dust.

Cheers!

Hi Norm,

I'm moving to Toronto at the beginning of next month and am definitely interested in a meet. I'll keep an eye on this thread.

I've got 2 now Posted Image I built a DIY from the old driver. I thinking of building one more (I got a BASH amp upgrade from SVS), so I have the old amp lying around. I'm still not at reference but I'm getting there ... 115-116db @ 20hz.

They're neatly tucked away behind my screen 96" ... I upgraded to front projection (Panasonic PT-AE300)after I had a sneak peak at Norms.

Cheers!
Mass

How do you like your Panny AE300 Mass?

I'm very happy with my HS10. I wish the blacks were a little better, but I can live with it until I get my next projector in 3 or 4 years.

I've got to start to send PM's to the old gang to get this thing going.

Norm, I absolutely love the AE300. The Sony was still a little outside of my price range, but I think it hold up pretty good. The black level is outstanding, especially with the HOYA filter. If I'm able to make it, I might be able to bring it down (if you want). I'll have to take it down from my ceiling mount Posted Image

I'll let Rob know 'bout the meet. He was at the last meet in Kitchener. I'm sure he's interested in coming.

Cheers!

Mass, you're welcome to bring your FP if you wish, or if anyone else would like to see it, but I know how you feel about taking it down. I probably wouldn't bring mine anywhere right now.

And yes, let Rob know about the thread.

For now though, I'll be gone for the next 4 or 5 days. I'm heading up to the cottage to close it up for the winter, and to have Thanksgiving with most of the family.

Be back on Monday.

Depending on the date I hope to be able to attend. I also have an infocus X1 that can be easily taken down and brought along if people are interested in seeing it.

Nice job Norm!

I'd be interested in attending as well.

At this point I'm fairly hardwared out. Still love to see your setup though.

Any interest in watching a whole movie or going to a nearby theater to catch something current as part of the agenda?

As of this point, there is no agenda. Everything is open for debate.

For info purpose, we have a Galaxy Theatre here in Orangeville.

I'll be picking up Matrix Reloaded tomorrow, and will have the Indiana Jones trilogy as well, so we can have a movie marathon if anyone wishes it. (I also have all five star Wars movies. OT on laserdisc.)

But, as I said, everything is up for consideration.

Any ideas?
Norm

Let me know if you want a total newbie to attend. Green as they come. I have a great design in mind for my basement though and would love your experienced feedback.

Jeremy, I was just about to begin talking about that.

As far as I know, all Saturdays in November are ok with me. Except the 1st of November.

So, these dates are available:

November 8
November 15
November 22
November 29

Let me know your preferences. Posted Image

I believe that the next matrix movie opens on Nov. 5, so if we were to do the 8th, we could check out Reloaded at Norms, then head to a theater to see Revolutions. Depends I guess on how much movie watching people want to do.

Could also split things into afternoon at Norms, grab some food, and those up for it can head out to an evening show (will probably be packed opening weekend though, so best to get some advance tickets).

Walter.

I'm still not sure about my weekends right now. My preference would be for a little bit later into November.
