In the beginning there were 14, most are in the picture.

The experience was epic!!

Most hadn't met. Our love of music brought us together, respect and love for each other brings us back.

We made this OUR event and left lifelong friends.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

CarverFest has NO EQUAL (AFAIK) in the audio world.

Nelson Pass has AMP CAMP out west, but I believe its a truncated(weekend) event. Polk Fest is over a weekend and usually is held in a members home. There are CanJams, Axpona, RMAF and the like. Schiit Audio has The Schiitr(their new brick and mortar), SchiitShows and SchiitMeets pretty often. I plan to attend the planned event in Cleveland. Clayton Shaw's Spatial Audio will attend Axpona this year and is a regular at the other big shows. Sherry and I are going to Axpona this year. I plan to meet Stoddard and Moffat from Schiit and Clayton Shaw and put a face to some of the other great names in audio.

That said, ours is a one-of-a-kind event. And trust me, we the envy of audio fans around the world.

Yep, we hope you reconsider Roy. It has been way too long. Same goes for Mark. He taught me how to not burn myself with the soldering gun during the tube amp build.

That was a great time. The "wall of sound" setup in the background was indeed something to hear. I thought we were going to literally blow the windows out.

Thanks for chiming in my friend. Good to hear from you! Can you make it over and sit a spell? It would be great to see you again.
