post #1 of 368
Thread Starter 

Alright, since now it's 2010 not 2009 anymore, reckon should start a 2010 post instead =)

Thanks for coming today everyone and thanks for giving me a ride home Kunal.

Please post your impressions and feedbacks here :






Please :
Sorry, but just to make it easier.
Would all attendees mind to email me unspeakable.word (at) gmail.com :
Email title : Head-Fi Melb Meet [UserName] {how many people}
And in the email -
1. name (and head-fi nickname)
2. contact (phone and email probably)
3. equipments will bring
4. Cars and suburbs?
5. other comments or suggestions

BTW, in the email,
please let me know also who's bringing Powerboards and extension cables etc.
Or anyone's gonna drive and which suburbs they are from, so maybe carpool can be organise for those who want to bring larger gears =)
AND let me know/ipdates if you want to add/drop gears.

Please Bring:
1. caps/tips etc - if you intend on using other peoples headphones/iem,
2. tag your headphones somehow (elastic bands, paperclips etc), name them probably (so we know whose the owner) It will be easier if owners tags/names their own gears, but I could bring my Dymo buddy I guess...

1. Not sure yet, but I might: Alex (15 years old, have to convince mum )
2. Most Saturday and Sunday, I guess from 11am, depends on how far meet is from home.
3. Unsure, I live in Ringwood. 45 min drive would be fine I guess.

I'm coming to Melbourne for 2 days, starting on Tuesday 19th =D

Yeah I could bring my totally awesome audio gear.
post #5 of 368
How are people planning on carrying their gear there?

If we're all driving, then I suggest NOT in the city since parking will get expensive.

I second that and don't forget your iGrado want to test it.
post #7 of 368
i might tag along with my modded PS1 and modded jaycar headphone amp
post #8 of 368
nsx_23 you should bring your 650's if you come
post #9 of 368
Well, I'll definitely want to meet up with some other head-fiers and try new gear. Hopefully I'll have a STAX amp by then too.

Yes, I'll bring my HD650, but I think I'll leave the Zero at home.....

I think some firm details such as location and date need to be set soon though.
