After checking the gear list, are there really no W1000's going? Maybe I should hope AT brings a pair...

Ray Samuels usually brings a W1000. Most likely someone will have one.

I am also hoping AT shipped some of their higher end models to loan out as I think I will eventually pick up a pair.

Ok all the attendee list is all caught up - remember you have until midnight to confirm, and then THAT IS IT. we aren't joking - if you or a guest is not on the list you might have to wait until all the confirmed folks come in first - which might mean you wait outside for a few hours! and you definitely don't get to stay for dinner! that's only fair for the folks who've already confirmed and might be flying in late - we don't want them pushed out because of the 250 person limit just because you came unannounced with your posse!

PM me with all the confirmations, immtbiker has enough to deal with! check the first page to make certain you have to, tho! and don't use that list to decide we have enough space - remember, the manufacturers and the press are included on the 250 list, but not on the member attendee list!

Jahn: Will local members be able to reach you via PM/email during show hours to see if there's space for them to attend at the last minute?

I'd like to say yes but I'll probably be running around and won't be online during the meet. I could probably do a Noon-check and see, but then to PM particular people to say "hurry down" would mean that-

1)They would have to be in NYC to make this worth doing, and
2)If you are in NYC, why are you waiting this long? PM me before the darn meet! Like TODAY!

Now if someone is just out of town without internet or totally sick and gain consciousness at 9am the day of the meet, that's one thing - but those cases are really slim. But yes I'll have internet at the meet so it couldn't hurt for folks to PM me on the actual day if they don't show up at the hotel themselves - no guarantees that i'll read the PM in short order tho, just to be fair!

Speaking of fair, I totalled up the # of folks for the Sunday meet. There are 65 folks for 60 spots. Not good. If you are on the unconfirmed list you must PLEASE PM ME! Because the 5 folks who are the last to do so won't be on! This includes folks that have already confirmed for saturday but didn't confirm for sunday - if you go to the sunday list and see your name under the unconfimed - PM ME THANKS!

Until reading this post, I did not know I had to send a separate PM to confirm for Sunday. I immediately confirmed the one time I was asked, but did not know that was for Saturday only or that this was required. People should look HERE to see if they are confirmed for Sunday (like NeilPeart, tyrion, Wmcmanus, and vpivinylspinner who are unconfirmed but all have said that they would be there on Sunday). I am PM'ing you now, Jahn. Thanks for the heads-up.

So... very soon... excitement...

Ok all, all updated again, check the sunday list in particular since as you can see there are many more confirms there now and spots are running out. Don't assume that if you responded to the saturday confirmation PM that we knew you meant sunday too - if you see your name on the unconfirmed list, or you aren't there at all, PM me!

btw folks asked about what the times were for the sunday meet. I knew but i'm brain dead right now so i'll get back to you - I pm'd the rest of the committee to ask, hehe.

finally, the GRADO RAFFLE and the AT and BEYER TABLE contests will be closed at 9 PM EST TODAY so get those entries in! The Grado raffle winner will be annouced at the National meet, but the table contest winners should be announced late tonight (obviously after 9pm!) Thanks!

I was on the confirmed list for Sunday, but seem to have dropped to unconfirmed. YGEM again

immtbiker,

Sorry, my aim was not for him to actively hand these out or make a big deal, I just wanted folks to try the cable if the chance presented it self. I was not signed up because I could not make it to NY during these dates because of family reasons well way before the schedule.

Anyhow thanks for the heads up and I will let him know. I am finding it a difficult line to try and be enthusiastic while not breaking any of the rules, so my apologies if this seems the case. I have deleted my original post.

Ken

Sunday is cool because it is a regular member meet.

Cable makers like Moon Audio purchased a table and are offering giveaway prizes to help offset the costs of the meet and benefit the members and hopefully drum up lot's of future business for their companies.

Also, you are posting that you can't make it, when you were never signed up in the first place which makes it seem as if your post is a free advertisement.
I'm not trying to be mean or cruel, just fair to all of the members.

Ultimate Ears

Hello --

Just wanted to let everyoe know that Ultimate Ears will have an audiologist on staff to shoot impressions for anyone who wishes to purchase Ultimate Ears while at the meet. We will absorb all impression costs and to sweeten the deal even more, our UE-10's will be going for a 1-day special of $800.

We will also be selling all of our super.fi models on site with a 20% discount. I am not going to bring a lot of product but I will take orders and ship on Monday with no assosiated shipping charges. This will make it easier for everyone who is traveling.

Looking forward to meeting you all,

Mike
