Tom,

Since I will not bringing any speakers, just amps, you are more than welcome to put the 75 though it's paces. I will give you a buzz after check in. Just need some help getting these puppies out of the car. Way to heavy for my wife Terri, who weighs in at 113lbs. AJ has so kindly offered to assist.

I don't really plan on bringing a bunch of extra gear this year. We blew our load last year.
If you really want to hear something above, let me know now.

ALL TUBES AMPS STAY IN CABIN-12 IF ANYONE WANTS TO HEAR THEM ON THEIR SPEAKERS,
YOU HAVE TO BRING YOUR TOYS TO CABIN 12. THE AMPS COST MORE THAN YOUR SPEAKERS, DEAL WITH IT.

i would love to hear the lightstar amp. the sevens are another set that would be awesome to hear, although they would require a whole lot more work in moving them.

Yeah, maybe this year we can actually have them hooked up to a source worthy of the amplifiers....That's right, I said it.

Didn't we hook that shitty CD player of yours up to them last year ??
As I recall that CDP sounded like total ASS... :lol:

Yeah, that was two years ago and that was definitely one bad synergy right there. Can't explain why, but I agree. That sounded like shit. ](*,)

We'll hook you up with something this year that has good synergy with your rig.

I am really pumped about the Beacon-- this guys takes the "old school" minimalistic approach.
