Woops,  still listening to the live broadcast test...  Pink Floyd just came on....  I can see Tomorrow is going to be rough... should have been out of here hours ago.  Well I guess you know it's good when you can't stop listening.   I've been watching the bandwidth for the past couple hours, even though I'm the only one listening to it, I may be able to set up a test like this every night around 10pm CST for a few hours.  This would get people who can't attend the fest a chance to dial in the feed and their headphones so when the fest starts everything will be on auto pilot.

Can't wait for the fest.  Julie & I look forward to some great listening, getting together with old friends, and meeting new ones.

My wife wears the tool belt in the family and here is what she threw together next to the stairs (sorry about the poor quality cell-phone photo). Talie also likes to take walks and water, but I'm so jealous as she will not really snuggle. Not a tree climber and that might because she is a Savannah, but a runt so full grown now with the long legs, but not the huge size of some of them. If she liked car rides better I might consider bringing her if we came down for the fest.

Great to see your beautiful cats. Our two old girls both died last year and we imagine being free to travel now, but don't seem to go anywhere. Hmmmm.

The video feeds sound great Steve. I look forward to them!

Been trying to catch a live broadcast test - any sort of sked?
Starting to seriously consider a father/son road trip as my birthday gift since close to it at the end of Sept. Is the guitar amp pictured on the home page slide show available to try out?
When do you get going on Friday? Is Saturday the big day of listening to various set ups or all three days?

Is the Decware Zen Fest more like a G2G where folks just show up and hang for a day or more and listen to music and check out the Decware (and maybe other equipment others have brought) or is it more like a one-manufacturer audio show with gear either for sale or offered at show prices for later delivery?

Mac5u

Its just a g2g....period.  Other equipment is there as well. We all just hang out, chat all night, and have fun.

About the only thing we all try to do as a group is Sunday morning breakfast.

Hey Rollin,

Friday, people start rolling in late afternoon sometimes not until around 7 or so. Then things start a little slow as I assume everyone new is a little shy at first. Around 9-10 things get going good, for a few hours anyway, then it tends to slow up a bit.

Saturday, things start out sometimes with a few of us all going out to breakfast and it stays going strong until after midnight or so. All day long people try different combos, music and the like.

Sunday, the slowest day as most have to head home, but before they all head out we try to get out to breakfast as a group, which is usually a blast.

Try to come, I'd love to meet you in person,
Bob

I'll be doing more fine tuning of the live broadcast this weekend.  Still waiting for my cable so the SQ will be better when that gets here.  I have a 5 minute sample up now.

Re: DECWARE ZEN FEST 2011 SAMPLE FEED
Reply #25 - 08/27/11 at 06:52:26
 
OK,  I had a listening appointment today and about half way through it I had the realization that I should be recording it for this weekend's demo.... so I did.  (actually I already was at the hand of motion activated video and forgot). 

You can use this as a medium resolution example of the feed.  If my cable ever arrives we'll kick up the audio to HD.

Enjoy....

For shits and giggles I just played the test feed through my ZDAC into my Torii. Pretty damn cool, I can tell the differences between  different speakers. I could hear the sounds of work being done in the other room and at one time the sound of a fly farting!

Howdy Bob,

Unfortunately, it looks like I will be traveling solo this year .....

It seems that everyone else has a full schedule around this time of year .....

Looking forward to seeing you,

Randy
