    I'd love to participate but it looks like I won't be able to - I have ankle surgery next week and will be on crutches and unable to drive for the next month or two. If someone's driving in from NJ, I'd love to hitch a ride, and I'd gladly pay for gas, tolls, and parking. Otherwise, I hope you all have a great meet. Thanks, @thegunner100, for putting this together, I very much appreciate it.

    I'm in Montclair, which is close to the NJ Parkway and a couple of miles from route 3, which goes into Manhattan through the Lincoln tunnel.

    I'd love to go hear different rigs but I also hate when the hearing impaired are in charge of volume levels. I'd hate it, wouldn't I?

    IME, volumes are more often quiet than loud.

    I just found out I'm out for Saturday, I might see if I can switch to Friday though.

    But to your question, my 1st step is always to turn the volume all the way down before listening an adjusting as needed.

    I've heard it mentioned that raising the volume to higher than normal listening levels at shows can be beneficial to overcome a less than ideal listening environment, but it is common courtesy to turn it back down when through IMO.

    I just stumbled upon a CD and vinyl record expo that does the monthly rounds of NYC (Manhattan), Westchester, Strong Island, north and central Jerz, as well as near Philly: http://www.showsandexpos.com/. Does anyone know if it's any good? I'll attend one of the upcoming events and will report back.
