IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 4

post #46 of 1850
So far 9 have posted interest for a potential meet recently or in the past. We know of Tomikans and I've sent a PM to another Head-Fier in Winnipeg.
That puts us at 11 people, myself included.

I'm personally interesting in trying a turntable and full sized/tube amps.
Also interested in the Beyer and Stax lines
Oh, if anyone has a good CD player, would like to see if I notice a change from lossless!

I'll talk over the idea with my parents to utilize their house for a meet. The deck in the back is large enough for 11 to sit and BBQ too

Edit: Also have a pair of Sennheiser RS 180's now. (Wireless cans)

I've got a Tascam CD-01U cd player. It's got balanced outputs, if we can use them...

Also, is it warm enough in May for a BBQ? It sounds like a good idea, I just forget what May feels like, lol.

I might be around then. I'm pretty low on HP gear at the moment (just sold my 404LE) but have a Bryston BCD-1 and various other 2-channel faves. I'll check this thread.

best,

Was warm enough last year

Sadly, there is snow again

The nice thing about BBQing in May is the lack of mosquitoes. The not so nice thing is that the weather tends to be a bit more variable (e.g. last year's 25 cm snowstorm on May Long weekend) than later in the summer. Let's see what the weather looks like and make the call based on that.

I think it would be best if we planned to have the meet inside with the option of barbecuing if the weather is good enough.

orkney, if you bring even half of the cans listed in your signature I'll be happy. This looks like its shaping up to be a very interesting experience!

I'd better update that sig...

If we're in town I'll bring the few cans I have left, and maybe even the world's only living pair of Harbeth P3ESRs in custom Canadian maple...

How about we tentatively set a day... Does the afternoon of Sunday 2 May sound ok to people?
post #54 of 1850
I don't normally plan further than a week or two so any date we pick will work for me.

Mother is too paranoid to have people at the house so still need a venue!

So, around 10 people then. What if we all kicked in $10 and rented a hotel room, or small conference room?
post #56 of 1850
I can probably book space at the U of M if need be.

A conference room or room at the university would provide more space for tables and outlets for equipment. Space at the university is probably the cheapest option, we may even be able to get it for free.

The one other meet I have been to was in a rented conference room with around 7 of us, and after only an hour or two it was over and everyone was ready to leave, which is why the barbecue idea was nice, giving it more of a social feel than a bunch of headphone enthusiasts sitting individually testing gear. On that level, I would still prefer to go somewhere where there might be a bit of a homier feel, but if thats not possible, I'm sure we can figure something out.
post #58 of 1850
Yeah, I prefer the homier setting myself. I spend too much time at the university as it is. I'd still offer my place, even though it'd be a bit crowded.

Any change in plans guys? Does the afternoon of May 2nd still work?
post #60 of 1850
Mid-May would be best for me. I need some time to assemble my stuff (and take a bit of a break from school!)
