      Mark: Give your event it's own thread and attention rather than being lost here!

      Johnny. The audiophile scene is great here. Even better is the live music, especially for the type of music you seem to like. If you ever visit, I'd be glad to fall on the grenade and to take you around to some of the great music clubs....

    It's Paradise man!! No snow... (except in the mountains), temperate climate, green all the time, and not all the rain that everyone thinks there is. From my house, I can drive 30 minutes one way to the snow and 30 minutes the other way to the water....

        Product debuts galore were only one of the reasons that March 3's Music Matters 11, the latest installment of Definitive Audio Seattle's annual four-hour evening marathon, was a model event of its kind. Another, articulated by Definitive's president Craig Abplanalp to exhibitors less than an hour before the doors opened at 5pm, was that, at this Definitive Audio 40th Anniversary celebration, music rather than long-winded product spiels was the focus of each 20-minute listening session.
