The early impressions of the R70x are encouraging, I'm definitely seriously contemplating a purchase now! It's the only headphone I'm actually interested in buying even with the other flagships recently announced or displayed at CanJam, over the likes of the Audeze EL-8, MrSpeakers Ether, and Enigmacoustics Dharma. Audio-Technica has rarely let me down with anything so I'm optimistic! (The only exception was the atrocious-sounding FC7.)
You could try Custom Electronics, which hosted the last meet in Omaha in 2013: http://www.head-fi.org/t/656223/omaha-ne-head-fi-meet-april-20-2013   And if you don't mind a bit of a drive, I'd recommend making the trip out to Denver for CanJam@RMAF in October: http://www.audiofest.net
 I'm unlikely to organize one for 2015 at this point due to various factors, but I definitely encourage someone else to take the initiative! I actually did some location scouting earlier in the year and found a pretty nice place to hold a meet, the Standley Lake Library in Arvada. They have a meeting room that's just the right size for the CO local meets and costs just $50 for a day. Front Range Community College in Westminster also had some nice conference rooms, but...
 I suppose Justin will add the info to his Web site someday but until then, he has previous posts that provide some info: http://www.head-fi.org/t/632948/the-headamp-gs-x-and-gs-x-mk2-thread/675#post_9263617http://www.head-fi.org/t/632948/the-headamp-gs-x-and-gs-x-mk2-thread/525#post_9212845http://www.head-fi.org/t/112029/the-gs-1-thread/345#post_8596095 I added this info to the GS-X MK2's product page (on the Head-Fi wiki) as well, so folks don't have to dig around...
Garage1217 now has aluminum chassis options!!! Limited time only through 2/20!   http://www.garage1217.com/garage1217_diy_tube_headphone_amplifiers_012.htm
  If you pay attention to the fine print on both SonicElectronix.com and BuySonic.com, BuySonic doesn't offer returns period, while SonicElectronix has a 60-day policy. So just a guess, but BuySonic may be selling B-stock ("no returns" tends to be standard policy for b-stock items).
 I meant to suggest "a few more ads in strategic places," not heavy ad bombardment. And I totally don't understand your call for either avatars or signatures, and how you expect that to help, when: (1) Larger, more visually-obvious ads across the site would catch more attention from more people who may visit only particular sub-forums (going back to my previous point), (2) members can choose to hide signatures (not saying everyone does, but certainly there are some people...
^ That clinches it, the R70x will be mine one of these days.... 
Headphone.guru recently posted a review of the amp, includes some history on Garage1217 too: http://headphone.guru/garage1217-project-ember/
 I'm confused, are you guys throwing out the idea of CanJam also being known as the (Inter)National Head-Fi Meet? I don't understand why you wouldn't welcome Head-Fiers from all over the US, and even the world, unless there's going to be something like "CanJam East" in the future. And why are you calling on Head-Fiers to use your avatar or add a link to this thread to their signature? This is CANJAM—as in, officially Head-Fi-sponsored. How come there isn't a full-on...
