    OK Everyone:

    I volunteered for this next meet. Now, my equipment is not as good as Alan's but I know with everyone I've met so far - we'll have a lot of fun.

    I'm proposing two dates for consideration because of our Miami friends.

    They are April 5th or April 12th. If we can't swing one of these dates it will be in May before I could have the meet. And we would have to consider someone else hosting because of the spring break schedule.

    Here's a really proposed agenda but I suspect we'll only follow it loosely.

    Like to see LaMarcus bring that sub again. As mine is pitiful.

    AGENDA:

    5 pm starting time.

    1.Introductions

    2.Play music - say everyone bring 1 track you really want to hear. Experiment with different settings on the 45 TX.

    3. Show calibration on 45 TX and MCACC capabilities.

    4. Someone bring Avia or video essentials and practice calibrating my TV

    5. Pizza and lots of Beer

    6. Watch a few movie clips to see if we can say mine still needs professionally calibrated - I'm sure it will after ALan's results.

    We may not get to the next step based upon our last meet.

    6. Watch one Movie we all pick out before hand. What do you all say we make suggestions on the one we want to watch and the most votes win!

    7. Adjourn 11 pm.


    Couple of things my room comfortably seats 7 and we can get 9 in there if you sit on the two ottomans. Any more than that and some will have to sit on the floor.

    My wife has allergies and doesn't allow smoking in the house. But, we have a great big beautiful deck for you guys who will need a break.

    I'll tell my wife to leave and put china away.

    Guys I have great news!! I just found a member here in Dayton that is a actual ISF certified calibrator!! Since I'm on third shift and it's 2:30 in the morning, I can't get in contact with him yet, buy you better believe that when the sun comes up, I will be finding this guy for sure!!

    Can you tell how excited I am? I would have liked Gregg to do it, but I can't wait that long, and I'm sure this guy knows what Gregg does, and if he can replicate that, it would be great. But at the least I'm sure he can make my tv look better than it does now. Hopefully he can come and do my tv Saturday, if he can to it today that would be awesome!

    Only $275, I think it's worth it, that's half of what it cost to get Gregg to do it, not to mention the wait. Oh man I am so amped!!!!:b

    The 12th would be better for me as well, since I have family from Florida visiting on the weekend before. I hope everyone can make it!

    Hi everyone!

    Looks like its the 12th. Let's stay with that date - it should be better for me also.

    LaMarcus - can you bring your AVIA or Video essentials disc?

    Good thing it ended up being set for the 12th, although I'm not sure if I can make it. The 5th would've been a definite no, as I have a concert that night; Carmina Burana (Miami University Collegiate Chorale) with the Cincinnati Ballet, you guys should see it! [​IMG] I'll be performing on the night of the 4th and afternoon of the 6th as well, but they're all good, since you wouldn't be able to distinguish my voice from the others, anyway. [​IMG]

    Ah, I was wondring if it was the one I have. I just got one from someone else in this forum. It has the DD trailers, all the THX trailers, the DTS trailers, the Phantom Menace Pod Race Scene in DD and DTS, and the THX WOW! demo. The latter being really cool. I love this disc! I take it when I go speaker and equipment shopping. All the salesguys get jealous[​IMG] !

    I was going to bring it with me and I didn't want to bring a disc that someone else already had. I don't have any equipment to lug along with me.

    Oh my goodness! Make sure you bring that!! I've heard so much about that disc (thx)! You have a different disc than I do. Soundslike you have the dts demo disk too! I have the DD demo disc. Depending on how good your disc is, I may have to get that too. I know getting the THX disc is next to impossible.
