Hope you can at least stop by for a little bit. Besides, isn't it supposed to be the day for you to get away for a little R&R? :rolleyes:

 

 

 

Also guys, Bear is making a pretty long drive to come up. Take a look through his profile and say what you'd like him to bring. He's got way too much stuff to bring it all, nevermind the fuss the border people give him (not to mention his reason for visit from last time... "uh, I'm going to meet a guy from the internet...")

Also, the 3pm was kinda arbitrary. I'll be home by 1pm, so if people want to come early to setup or just get some quiet listening time in (or maybe you have to leave early), that's welcome too.

What would you guys like to bring? I have a list of in my profile. I can bring however much that fits in a small suitcase.
Also selling a bunch of stuff too, also in my profile.

I'm going to be overnighting at a friends place the night before, they are having a birthday bash and hopefully I won't be hung over the day after :P

A friend of mine might be coming to the meet, he's interested in entry level dacs amps and headphones totalling up to $370ish. So if you have anything in that price range could be worth bringing smily_headphones1.gif

Since no one has chimed in yet, I'll throw some suggestions out. Mostly stuff I haven't heard yet or would like to hear again. Others should chime in since there's lots of good gear available...

Senn HD800

Grado HF-2

 

I'm curious to try the Rega in my system.

Maybe bring the DA8 again (if Velomane can't make it?).

I'd like to come to the meet.  Take a look at my sig and let me know what you want me to bring.

 

Grado PS500

Stax

 

maybe:

Taboo

if DigitalFreak can make it I'm sure he'd be interested in the UHA760

the Woo WEE if you have space? don't want to overload you

post #1716 of 1831

I can manage a couple hours, and I will bring the DA8. In addition to what I listed earlier, I'll also bring a Graham Slee ULDE.

post #1717 of 1831

Oh interesting! Graham Slee stuff was really popular in the early days of head-fi, but I haven't heard much about them lately (although there's so much stuff these days it's impossible to keep track of what's available).

 

 

As an aside, for those who like iems I've got a JVC FXD80Z that I can bring. I got it in a random trade but it just doesn't fit my ears very well.

 

 

edit: I wonder if we almost have the entire Hifiman lineup...

HE-300 - me

HE-400 - Digital Freak

HE-500 - I know a few people have them

HE-6 - me and Velomane

 

Does anyone have the HE-4 or HE-5? or how about the new 400i or 560?

HE5-LE here. They're what kicked it all off for me.

post #1719 of 1831

Oh right, I even had that in my list on the previous page *duh* :ph34r:

 

How do you find it compares to the HE-6?

post #1720 of 1831

TBH, I've barely listened to them since the HE-6's showed up. I expect there will be more experienced ears at the meet to see how they fare.

For those who've never been to my house before, it is *far* easier driving in from the university. It's 3 right turns if you do so. If you come in from Pembina it's a bit of a maze and literal zig zag.

I looked up your street on google, and I concur. Most definitely easier from the U. Armaegis, please PM or text me your address.

post #1723 of 1831

Viper2005, I would enjoy listening to your HD800's and trying my LCD2 with the Lyr and V200.

post #1724 of 1831

This has to be the most gear-full Winnipeg meet yet.  Wish I could make it!
