Maybe that is the seed of a good idea. I know many of the best winemakers in the valley and could probably set up a mini tour that may be able to get you in to wineries that don't do tours.

I also cook. All the stuff you'd find in a nice restaurant but what I really like to do is barbecue. You have to eat my ribs sitting down because if you're standing up, you're knees will buckle.

Maybe in late spring when the weather is nice I could host some sort of event. Maybe wine tour, food and music.

Just a thought.

Steve, If you head to Florida to see Master Lou, I'm in the Tampa area.

No vinyl but we share a fondness for ARC and ML.

Thanks Brad, I will certainly give you a shout if I ever get down that way.

STEVE! Great thread. It was pretty damn cool for Steve to drive down to my home 2 times last year. Was also special to hear Steve's impressions especially after the first time in March. I only had the CLX and other gear barely a month or so. Wasn't really setup correctly and while it was good...just kind of "ok". But months later after adding room treatments/Nordost Odin power cables/ new DAC etc..made a big difference. And last but NOT least..Steve setup my Clearaudio Innovation TT

Those 3 days Steve was here we JAMMED! Ate well too.

Was really cool and Steve's a good friend. Had to cancel my trip up to see him earlier this year but still planning on going.

Would love to travel some this year to other's AA members to hear their gear.

This year I have decided the only way to determine what my system really needs is to travel and hear other peoples systems. I know most would do so by attending shows and their local dealers but that hasn't proven to yield what I'm looking for. So the next idea was to travel to other AA members homes and listen to their systems. These trips have yielded some good listening sessions and great friendships.

It started last March and again in October, traveling to hear Timobi's great system in Louisiana, 500 mile drive each way. Tim is a super nice guy and let me listen to his mighty Martin Logan CLX speakers. If you haven't ever heard these speakers you really should. And OMG the ClearAudio Innovation!!

Next trip was a short one to visit with gadawg in Texas. This was my first chance to hear the Wilson Sasha II speakers with top flight Levinson gear. George was a gracious host and let me even bring my own dac for comparisons to to Esoteric K01Xs. This was one of those systems that really showed me how badly I need a bigger listening room, you could fit 3 to 4 of my rooms in George's room.

My last trip of the year was a flight to Seattle to spend 5 days hanging out with 2fastdriving aka Marc, For The Love of Music aka Ed, and Antonmb aka Tony. Marc was gracious enough to let me crash at his house for the duration. Both Marc and Ed have Wilson Alexia speakers but completely different electronics. The listening session at Ed's was short but fruitful, it left me once again yearning for a larger listening room. Do to distance and time constraints I wasn't able to hear Tony's system, maybe next time. Over the course of several days Marc and I were able to improve his system with some tweaking of room acoustic placement, making his Alexia's really come alive. After returning home I have gone to work again on my room acoustics to bring out some of the qualities I heard in all of these systems, stage depth and image placement.

I'm sure your asking what I plan to purchase after hearing all of these systems? I had already bought Audio Research gear, same as Marc's, before I went there. But after visiting Tim's, I came home lusting for a ClearAudio Innovation TT. As for speakers the hunt for perfection is still on.

Thanks to all for your friendship and for sharing your great systems with me.
Amazing! I went to law school in Oklahoma City. Sadly, I haven't been back to OK since then. If you find yourself down in New Orleans get with me. I can show you what a small listening room really is.

Do you ever make it down to New Orleans for anything? I live on the Northshore of the lake. As with Steve above, get with me if you come down sometime. I'd like to introduce you to the president of our audio club as well. We hold irregular meetings in this area, but the group is a pretty nice group of guys.
