              Great to see you too Brian. Wish had more time to chat as usual.

              I am checking with Larry on final attendance. 265 people had preregistered; 120 came on Saturday.

                It sounds as though attendance was lower than they hoped, since they were promoting the free CD for the first 200 attendees each day.

                  Numbers ended up around 300 for the two days. Perhaps more importantly, the age was skewed much younger and there were far more women present than the typical high end demographics. To be sure, there was an established audiophile contingent as well. People were celebrating high end audio, not the market vagaries the naysayers are constantly harping on these days.

                  It was great to see you and Heidi again Myles. Thanks so much for coming and for all the coverage.

                    Yes there were a lot of women there and not just with their husband or partner either.

                    The get together's intent was to attract not just the usual audiophiles and I think you guys succeeded there.
