Dutch Mini-meet (November 8th) - impressions  

post #1 of 143
Thread Starter 
IMPRESSIONS/PHOTOS
starting here

INFO
So, for all the Dutchies: I've got a nice place covered for a meet near Hilversum and this topic is to keep a list of people/equipment coming.

Location and time:
XXXXX
Meeting time from 11 to 5.

Wallpower and table area is covered, but would be handy if everyone brings a powersplitter for their equipment. Take enough interconnects to get your own stuff wired.
There is a fridge that I'll fill with some beer and juice, maybe you can help with food/snacks/specialbeer etc.

Please state the equipment you can bring and I'll add it to the list, any requests are welcome too, makes it easy for others to see what they have to bring.


DATE
25th seems a busy day for some, how about november first? I have to check but I think that will work for me.
Date is still a question, Sunday is probably best for most. If we'd like an L3000/R10/HD800 the first of November is out, I'm checking on alternative possible date and will update later.
Leaning towards November 8th... and November 8th it is.

post #2 of 143
Depending on the date, I am very willing to join in the fray. I don't think I can come in October, since I have to take 'tentamens' (exams) this month. I think November, for that reason, would be welcome, I'm not likely to be the only one having this particular problem. if it's in November, I will almost certainly come.

Bringing a DT880-250, W5K, Meier audio Arietta, Fiio E3/E5 and iBasso T4. My UE-11's won't be worth mentioning, unfortunately

I look forward to seeing this development.

I am the second person who cannot make it the 25th. I got the house full with people as I am celebrating my 18th birthday with family that day. Fortunately my exams are behind the back (to start with Dutch sayings ) the 22nd.

Oh, if you need any help in setting up/planning etc. please say so. I would be more than happy to see this coming together.

Requests:
Graham Slee Solo / M3 / Goldpoint Headphone Pro
SR325i / HD650 / MS-PRO / DT880-600
PC monitor if I decide to bring my computer

Ah, this starts well with the 25th... a week later? That will make it the first of November.

I think there are several computers around so that should not be a problem, unless everyone needs one

We may 'have' to move it to a later day, one with a very nice list of headphones (L3000/R10/HD800) can't come the 1st and I'm sure many will be interested in these? I know I am. Finding out when he'll be available.
post #10 of 143
Have you asked tohenk2? He has an hd800 as well. Also I think either kees or vvanrij has a ps1000, ferrari has a beta22 (a great balanced amp) but I am not sure if he is interested in coming to a meet.

tohenk2 can't come the 1st

Hello, oh thats a bummer then, if there is no other d800 available I might be willing to lend mine to blackmore so he can take it to the meet if he promises to take good care of it but i hope someone else with an hd800 is capable of going because these are not cheap and you need to have a good amp and source to appreciate them.

Oh yes I forgot to mention, I know Drosera as a phoenix balanced headphone amp and the top dac made by that same manufactuter. Might be interesting to ask him if he wants to join the meet.

I am o.k. with later date, doesn't really matter for me, at least at the moment. And of course, better have such headphones around, worth to wait.

Lets point out the date and see what guys/girls think of it. I will send some mails to KEES and some others to see if they are join the meet as well.

Hoi Anouk. Lets wait until most of folks can come, at least the majority of it, would be better, imo. And of course I will take care of HD800, don't worry, but still hoping you can make it.
