Hey there,

Don't know if/how we can be involved, but I work for Natural Sound and would love to be involved in some way if we can think up some ideas!

Love to know if I can help in any way!
Andy

PS: We do have the Yamaha NS5000 tomorrow (Saturday 10-3pm). We're pretty excited and proud to have them for KW to hear. Come by for a listen...not just to the speakers, but they're being powered by the AS3000 amplifier - which is a beautiful.

Stay tuned!!!


Thanks Andy!
I have come to know Ben at Natural Sound and he is a great help!
I was actually hoping to speak with both Ben and Andrea about setting something up
in the way of a gathering. Maybe you could mention the idea to her and see what kind of a reaction
we get!

Cheers

GULP! lol haha well that's embarrassing!
I will be in touch soon!

PS - I came in one day with my daughter who to say the least is a bit busy! I was really impressed and appreciative when you let her sit down in the cinema chairs to watch a movie on the high end TV's! Things like that which make your store great!

Thank you
Nathan

Hey guys I have a favor to ask.
The website is coming I promise! lol
I recently purchased a new DAC Simaudio 280D and am less than thrilled with the results. I was wondering if someone would be gracious enough to let me bring it over and try it in a different system (preferably a decent system) to see if its the player or my system/cables/room is messed up?


Highly appreciated
Nathan

I'm interested in this.

A couple of things:

1. Anyone thought about a mailchimp account? You can have an auto sign up on the website and its pretty easy to create an email blast. I use it for my own business and its a god send.

2. I have a space in Guelph that about 1000 square feet where I run classes for kids. I can reconfigure the space quite easily to accommodate different types of events even emptying it completely. Acoustically, it sounds a lot better than my home but for an event where people bring things in we'd probably want to tweak it. Many tables and chairs.

My personal gear is no draw but I'd be happy to host an event. I'm especially interested in DIY if there are people who would like to have a DIY meetup.

I haven't taken a good photo of the space but if there is interest I'll take one and put it up.

- David

Hey David - thanks so much for the offer! This would be huge for the group! The website is almost up and running and I really appreciate everyones patience as we all have to remember that this is being done by someone who volunteered his busy time to help out the group. Also we have looked into a mailchimp account and it looks like a good idea! Stay tuned!
