Well, I finally got a shipping notification for my LHLabs Pulse Xfi!  If there is strong enough interest, I can bring it plus the matching LPS to the meet.
Well, I had planned on bringing by Bottlehead S.E.X., but I recently let out some magic smoke while doing some tweaking.  I don't know if it will be resuscitated by the show.  If I get mine by then, I thought about bringing an LHLabs Pulse Xfi, especially since they aren't going to be there (a big miss on their part), but who knows.  At the same time, I only have a one day pass and would like to wander around.  If there is little to no security, and most Headfi'ers aren't...
If I don't get a sale of the combo by the end of the month, I will consider it.  
I probably should have asked prior to buying tickets, but does anyone who has gone before know if each one has to be registered to a name?  I bought two 1-day tickets for myself and Tina, but wasn't given the option to list her as an attendee.
At this point, I should be there.  Not sure what I will be bringing, but my Bottlehead S.E.X. 2.1 and whatever DAC I have at the time (still waiting on my LHLabs Pulse Xfi...) are likely.  I have a newly acquired Kenwood KH-K1000 headphone I can bring since it is hard to find nowadays.  So I would only need a little bit of table space.   Steve/Audio Addict, it won't be a proper meet without you.  I hope you can find suitable accommodations and still make it up.  I'd...
Thanks for the impressions.  I, too, am waiting for an Xfi, with an LPS sitting here taunting me.  As long as these units can compete with a midrange Schiit stack, while saving me the space, it will be money well spent for me.  
Updated:  lowered price, now includes shipping and insurance.     I was an early backer of most of the LHLabs campaigns and over committed funds, so I have two Pulse Xfi's coming and obviously don't need both. I also plan to build a DIY power supply, so I don't need the LPS.  So up for grabs is a Pulse Xfi +LPS combo.  I have the LPS in my possession and the Xfi will get here when it gets here.  Earliest estimates from LHLabs were April since this Xfi is an upgraded perk...

I stand corrected on the original K701. I didn't know the original cable was a four wire one. I have only modded a Q701 and a 702 AE, so I had to do dual entry for balanced (replacing the 3 pin mini XLR was too irritating and destructive). At any rate since the Kxx has the 3 pin mini, it won't be as simple as the original K701.
Depends on what you consider easy.  Headphones that have cables going to both earcups are far easier to balance than single entry ones.  I'd also say that it is harder to get a strong joint on the round rods of the AKGs than something like the solder pads of Denon or Beyerdynamic headphones.  Even hardwiring Hifiman headphones are slightly less obnoxious once you get rid of the coax connectors.
