I am assuming from your two posts that Saturday doesn't work for you. You may want to join us Friday night at Let There Be Sound, if your local.

The earliest I'll be able to make it would be around 6:30, that's if there is no traffic and I can get away. Worst case scenario would be around 9:30, so count on any time in between. I have you cell, so I will give you an ETA when the time comes. I will also check with the hotel if they need me to check in. If not, I will come straight to where ever people are.

Thanks again, Mike.

As much fun as we have, that is too long a ride for a few hours on Friday night. Your drive round trip will be almost double the time we will be at Oz's.

That will work. If it's earlier, you can catch dinner with us, if later, you can meet at Oz's.

You are definitely invited. We usually show up, talk, listen to mostly speakers in the high end room and some in the main area (not a big store). We might have a couple of headphone rigs show up, and drink a bit. Some times we don't get out of there until after midnight. No way for you to be there on Saturday?

I'm in the car business. Saturday is our "Big Day" in sales. That's the day I have to make money to be able to afford this hobby.

OK. I usually get lost. So I'll be driving from Jax. leaving around 4 on Friday and spending the night, Saturday at the meet then driving home that afternoon. Where do I need to go? its prob easier to stay at the place where we are having the meet correct?

Gary, it's easier than you think. Just pull the wire holders away from the earcups (no tools necessary) and the earcups come right off. Them you can see the circular swivel pivot that houses the 2 screws. They are tiny, like the ones that hold sunglass lenses into their frames. A precision phillips rotating about 6 turns will remove the screw. Just go to any optical brick and mortar and for $.50 they will give you a replacement screw.
If you'd like, I can get a screw for you and fix them at the meet with a "no damage" guarantee.
If not you can always take a chance and mail your $7000 prized possesions up to Connecticut and have some bench flunkie do the same (note the sarcasm), and then take another chance having them mailed back to you.

Trust me...if you can open a bottle of Patron Silver without spilling it, you can do this incredibly difficult repair

I will get you directions. At the moment the hotel where the meet will be held is about 20 minutes from the hotel you will be staying at. The meet is at the ES which is by the beach. The Int'l Boat Show is that weekend so rooms are over $300/night and they are requiring a 4 night minimum. The Amerisuites is where we usually do the meets but there meet room is being renovated and may not be ready in time. I've been searching for other hotels where we can stay and hold the meet but no luck so far. I will pm you directions as we get closer. If you google Amerisuites Planation, get the address and mapquest it. Let There Be Sound is 5 minutes away. You will be able to follow us down to the ES on Saturday and leave from there.

post #254 of 678
I'll have a go at it Aaron,if not,I'll bring them to the meet and we'll fix it there.I'm just pissed I didn't notice it sooner because I have scratches on either side of the swivel point of the black arm that holds the earcup.I can't imagine it would cost much to replace this piece though.Thanks,I'll let you know what happens.Gary
P.S.Thanks MikeG for all the info.

You don't understand. You might actually make a car sale or two. I, for one, am in the market maybe. At the International Meet in San Jose, the boys were so excited about all the headphones and associated gear, they went quite mad and were literally falling over themselves (and each other) in giddy enthusiasm. I distinctly remember an indistinct phone call in which I was offered a Honda Fit and a plane ticket in order to join them. They were working out the percentages of who would pay for what when I fell asleep on the other end. You never know.

I always get lost, but that never stops me from showing up. pm me and I'll give you my cell phone number...not that I'll be helpful, but I am friendly and can discuss any number of random topics while you wander.
