Bay Area monitor and high end mic owners...(help please)

Hi again, I'm here in the Bay Area on vacation (from Toronto, Canada) and I'm really hoping I can use this chance to hear some monitors and high end mics in person.

I recently purchased MM27s - as many of you know, and am planning on shipping them back upon my return. I was wonderinng if anyone here locally had them in a better room than mine and/or other quality near fields for me to demo in person.

I also purchased a nice CM7-GT/M7 but have never really heard it up against any other mics. (except during a quick shootout)

I never really get this chance and would be willing to buy while here if the right stuff turned up. My search for gear in Canada is slow and painful - I'm hoping here in this beautiful area there are some kind GS members who could help me on this.

I greatly appreciate any offers of time and would compensate as required. Thanks again.

Ok, I just spent my first day in S.F. - wow - beautiful city and the views going over the Bay Bridge - outstanding!

I should add that for obvious security reasons - I'd be happy to PM some personal and professional references to anyone kind enough to offer and time.

This is a quest for information during a brief one time to chance to be in the Bay Area.


Thanks again

Hey, pianokeys! Welcome to the Bay Area! The weather has been outstanding this week. I was out on the bay Sunday and the views were outstanding.

If you hit the North Bay, you could check out Prairie Sun. They just bought some Barefoots. We're a little bit smaller (Studio E). There are some good folks in SF. I'm sure you'll be able to work something out.

For your evenings in SF check out the following:

http://www.bestofsanfrancisco.net/specs.htm (go to Vesuvios across the street first because you won't leave Specs with ease)

Make sure to check out Aomeba in Berkeley (right across from SF) too:

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: BART DAVENPORT at the Hotal Utah FRIDAY NIGHT 12/28. Bart is absolutely astounding. You will not regret going...
