***DIY Dayton Pics. 80 Pictures**** *PIC*
Posted below is a link to the pics I took of DIY Dayton. There are a few projects that are unidentified. Please forgive me for forgetting to whom they belonged to. If someone knows, please let me know so I can fix the picture tags.
All in all, I had a very good time. There were many excellent projects. Some that come to mind were Jim Griffin's arrays. His hotel room looked like NASA with all of the equipment he brought along. Darren had an unplayed set of arrays he brought that once dialed in by Christian were awesome. Paul K had a very nice set of 3 ways. These were one of my personal favorites. The "Olives" were the most visually interesting and unconventional project IMHO. There were no bad or even marginal projects this year.
Matt Olsen brought 2 sets of DIY amps. Ed brought a very nice DIY amp also. I think a DIY amp is now in my future.
I had the privelege of getting to do Pjay's normal job of MC'ing the event. We used a test disk Jim Griffin brought back from the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest as well as a disk brought by Matt Olsen.
I saw many familiar as well as a few new faces this year. The Noid made a cameo appearance. Hopefully he will have an opportunity to return next year. I hope to see many more people next year. For those of you who normally attend and didn't, I would have to say that you missed out on some great projects and wonderful discussions.
My wife Connie was the only female to attend this year. Everyone should be encouraged to bring their spouses next year. She actually asked me to build Jim Griffin's bipole full range project after hearing them. DIY Dayton definitely helped my SAF of speakerbuilding. Could it help you to be able to build bigger and better projects and stay out of the dog house? I bet it could. She didn't even flinch when we went over to PE for our shopping trip. She says she will submit a project next year. Everyone should look out because she is one heck of an artist and woodworker and will likely come up with something very different and awesome looking.
All in all, it was a great couple of days. PE was a gracious host. Hopefully, they will keep on hosting this event.
