I am bringing at least two pairs of Polks.... Maybe three. I am for sure bringing my SDA 1C and a restored pair of RTA 12C. I bought the 12's new right out of Grad school. These were the first serious speakers I owned. I also might bring a more modern pair of LS90's.

Two weeks from now I will be there setting up!!

I am bringing my Van Alstine Tube FET hybrid pre-amp to try with the new CF amp! I really like this preamp, I recently bought used from ArJim (Jim Clark).

I’ll be bringing tools, I am thinking I’ll be bringing a variety of coffee too!

I’ll be bringing some favorite LPs as well!

This can all change depending on how my knee heals after my surgery last monday!

Val and Ruby, again.

As for gear- Preamps: Hegeman HAPI 2, APT Holman, BottleHead Foreplay(W/Seduction Phono), Dynaco PAT-5, Carver C-16 or CT-7 or both...
Turntable: VPI Scout 1.1 w/ 2M Black cart.
Amp: DennisMiller built TFM-42.
Speakers: Snell D's and Pioneer SP-BS22-LR's. PSB SubSonic sub, if I can get it in there.
Sources: Oppo BDP-103, Onkyo C-7030 with tube buffer mod. Polk Omni P1.

For the amp build: Several vintage 12AT7/12AX7/12AU7 type tubes, mainly Telefunken, Mullard, Amperex and RCA.
Selection of EL34's, including RFT's and Winged 'C' types.

Not much room this year, as we are taking a Honda Fit. Wish I could bring my Snell C-v's and PSB sub. Need room for amps being built!
