NorCal, San Francisco Bay Area Meet 2/27/2010  

post #1 of 235
Thread Starter 
Voltron, has taken over lead on this meet so here is the info from his post yesterday regarding the location. Thanks Al!

Date/Time: Saturday February 27th from 9:30am to 6pm

Location: DoubleTree Hotel, 835 Airport Blvd., Burlingame, California, United States 94010-9949

San Francisco Hotels - Hotels near San Francisco Airport - Doubletree San Francisco Airport

We have a different room but it is very similar in size to the larger meet room from August. It also opens onto a courtyard that we can use as a talking area so as to minimize the chatter while people are trying to listen to gear. Here is the floor plan and we have the Tiburon/Sausalito rooms:





Please post whether you want some table space and what gear you are planning to bring if you have not already done so. We will post this information and a gear list in the first and second posts of the thread for easy reference. Make sure you ping your Bay Area pals who were at the last meet or other meets or have always said they wanted to go to a meet. Depending on the number of attendees, be prepared to pony up $10-20 to cover the room expense. It isn't mandatory, but I'm not planning on footing $800 for myself.
Two vendors -- HeadAmp and Eddie Current -- will be attending the meet, and others are possible as well.

Here is the layout for the room, which has been shifted back to the same large room we used at the last meet:



As you can see, there were 17 tables, but I think we can squeeze in at least 1 more given that I do not believe we will be dividing the rooms. If we run out of room then we will have to decide whether to get more $pace or just share these tables as economically as possible.

I don't think we will have room for a For Sale or Trade table, but trading at meets is fine. Bring a card with info and stand it up by your gear if you are trying to sell or trade it.

Hey, if you didn't spend all that time flying back and forth across the country,..

Just foolin'.
I'll be there probably with the Zana/Ad2000 rig, reel to reel and some
Tape Project tapes (got Brilliant Corners by Monk that's killer!) and the modded ULN-2 in one form or another.

I'M GOING TO ASSUME you mean 2/27/2010 and not 2009, and I am interested, but can't be sure I will be available.

If it works out I would bring Shanling CD T100 and AT W1000s and W5000s

Too bad. I was really hoping to make the meet but totally understand the timing issue. Have fun!

2/27 works fine for me. I'll bring an HE-5 and a K1000. Amp will be a GM70 variant.

Frank, you made my day by listing the GM70 amp

If my calendar stays clear count me in.

Can't be there the whole day, but I would like to bring my LD VI and other gear on my sig for people to try out during my stay

It will be great to see you and the family.

Not sure what I'll have for sure but as it stands now it will be mac mini running Amarra into a Sonic Studio 302 (Metric Halo ULN2) being powered by the Stacker ll amp. I have a pair of Grado HF2's that I can bring but I really down to just those and the JH13s. This may be the lowest amount of headphone I have owned in 4 years.
post #13 of 235
Sounds fun, I'll try to make it.
post #14 of 235
I'd like to know the exact location before I commit.. But would bring my balanced BC2 DAC, upgraded GP pro, Denon 5900, Technic 810 Ortho, & maybe the original NAGRA DT48 Silver, if going..

I'll plan to be there. Gear list TBD.
