    Ok, I spoke to Wayne on Thursday and everything is a go for an October 20th date for the next GTA Home Theater meet.
    Basically, we'll all meet at the downtown Toronto Holiday Inn for the Inner Ear show, spend 3 or 4 hours there, then travel to Orangeville, where at Wayne's house and my own house, we'll spend the rest of the day. More or less.
    Everything is up for discussion on how the day will proceed.
    I believe Wayne and I agreed on a limit of 20 or so participents, hopefully split between the 2 homes.
    At Wayne's home, it'll be mostly the big screen.
    At my home, the draw will be Hi-Def and pro-scan on my 40" HDTV.
    I've got a large selection of DVD's, (over 500), so ask me if I've got it before bringing a movie to the meet.

    Some additional news from me.
    I had ordered the Panasonic RP-61 progressive-scan DVD player a couple of months ago, but I have been told by Panasonic that this player will not be produced for the market. So I had to choose another player and have decided to spend a little more and get the Panny RP-91.
    So, The RP-91 will be the player we will be watching on my Toshiba HDTV.
    I'm anxious to get it and see how it looks.

    Just thought I would ask a question.
    How is transportaion going to work? I can get to downtown Toronto no problem via the subway, but what about getting up to Orangeville and back down to Toronto after the meet?
    Is someone planning on renting a bus? [​IMG]

    I'm in....Is it Just for the Saturday. I just want to make sure due to having to book the saturday off work.
    I'll get a hold of Eric Strong, if he doesn't reply to here before hand. But I'm sure he would be up for the trip.

    I just received my new DVD player, the Panny RP-91. I'll let you all know what I think about it in the next couple of weeks, but of course you'll all get to try it at the meet on October 20th.
    I'll probably have wayne over for a movie or 2 next week, and he can post his own impressions if he so chooses.
    Later...
    Norm

    The RP-91 is a great player. Unfortunately, my receiver can't handle DVD-Audio, so that will have to wait, maybe a few years.
    Up to date, we have these confirmed people coming to the meet:
    Wayne Murphy
    Norm Lalonde
    Brentl
    Elliott Willschick
    Massimo N
    AndyVX
    Walter Feddern
    Ryan Peddle
    Eric Strong ???
    Miles_W ???
    That's 10 so far, we have room for about 10 more.
    Norm

    DAMN. The 20th is the U2 concert in Hamilton. Well, if I can't get tickets, count me in. I'll know by Friday.
    Why does everything happen at once? I really want to check this out.
