I think this would be lovely get together for Delhi Audiophiles who are used to meets with lots of music playing, since there's no experience like a actual listening experience.
Plus an excellent opportunity for audiophiles in Delhi/NCR who are on the lookout for audio systems ,to audition them in a proper home environment,with senior audiophiles on hand for consultation/advice.
As usual, plz do come with some of your fav music & some music that you may have picked up recently & wish to share with others, for a really fun time.
Thanks, Sid.

Hi Siddharth
Thanks for the invitation. I would definitely try and make it..Would like to listen to the Quad 11Ls with Quad pre-power. Would be grateful if you could ask Denny if convenient to bring a Wharfdale SW 150 to be paired with the 11ls as I have the same seakers and am looking for a sub.

Look forward to meeting up with fellow members.

Just a request to all, who so ever may be willing to join in for the session kindly advise back with their respective mobile numbers. It shall become easier to coordinate for anything that be needed just before the meet up day.

@ Ashish
Most welcome. Yes, we can firm up the confirmed members first week of Feb.

But planning in advance should help, since i foresee this meet to be quite an interesting one from testing various options available for potential buyers. The session could seemingly run quite a few hours, if participation level is high.

Filhaal, the idea was to just get everyone aware.

See you

Hi Siddharth,

Thanks for the invitation. I wiill try to be present. Listening to audio system in home environment is always important. Specially I am interested to have a first time feel of room treatment in home environment. Also, I will have opportunity to listen to Quad spkr. I like to carry some of my fav music CD, if you permit.

Yes I would love playing Need 4 Speed Franchisee on the Xbox360, I wouldn't call myself a gamer but I love racing games and I happen to have a Ps3 for this very purpose.

Count me in, please. Would love to simply meet up with other A/V enthusiasts.

PS: Guys I am not sure it is a good idea to be posting personal phone numbers and/or addresses in an open forum. Wouldn't email or PM be more appropriate for that?.
