Long time since last Toronto meet? - Page 4

post #46 of 78

I think it would work if we do it on a saturday or sunday, 2 to 5 P.M. That way the sub-19 crowd will be able to get into a pub/restaurant.

 

You don't have to bring your rig, but it's nice to let other people listen to your gear, and they let you listen to theirs. Personally I will be contributing my meager collection so far - AD700's, MS1i's, udac, and laptop as source.

I'd be able to do it at my house (just no booze or BBQ), but it has to be a weekday when my parents aren't home, so that cuts out a lot of people.

I think it would be a bad idea to do such a meet behind your parents' backs. And if we do it during a weekday, it would have to be in the evening so more people can attend.

There seems to be some confusion about the purpose of a meet, and peoples expectations.

Any of these venues should be a last resort, and really only reserved for major sponsored headphone meets.  A casual, laid back and inviting atmosphere of someones home is most definitely the preferred venue.

A shopping trip to the city, is definitely not the intent of a 'Head-Fi' meet!

Unfortunately, but true.

Fortunately, not true whatsoever.

Again, a 'headphone meet' should NOT be construed as an excuse for a 'drink-a-thon', let alone a shopping trip!

That's what it's all about

This response really gave me cause for concern!

That's what  a meet IS all about! ..... A casual get together of fellow like-minded Head-Fiers' who have a passion (or dare I say, an obsession) for the hobby, preferably held at an experienced members home (we can pitch in a few bucks each for pizza and wings or whatever), where members can share (and show off ) their rigs, talk 'shop', make some new friends over the course of a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday.

 

I'd offer my place, but I'm located just outside of Barrie, and not central to many members.

charliex, someone's house would be the best place, but since not a lot of people offered their house, the next best thing would be a hall at a library or a community centre. Of course the purpose of a meet is to meet other headfiers and listen to other gear, but I also think we should try and be as accomodating as possible when setting up a meet.

post #51 of 78

Thank you for the clarification, Charliex!

 

I know that it would be a lot easier if we set up this meet before next week because school starts for us students.  My house is a good 50 minutes from Bay Bloor Radio (just using the store as a point of reference, spatially) so I don't think that would work out.

 

If no one else can graciously offer us their house, my best suggestion is that we meet in the men's washroom at Yorkdale (the one closest to the TTC entrance).

Hi guys,

 

Been a member of head-fi for awhile now and would be interested in one of these meets, I would offer up my appartment for this (yonge and carlton) but unfortunately it is only 350 square feet and has a severe lack of chairs.

post #53 of 78

I back it. Everyone bring your rig and a pillow to sit on!

If I hosted a meet...is September 11th too short notice? I can accommodate about 15 people. We can have burgers. BYOB.

 

Whaddya say?

post #55 of 78

If you're accessible by transit (or if anyone wants to carpool!) i could probably come by and bring my gear (all listed on my profile)

Nope, not too late. 

 

Accessibility by transit is quite important, so please include that information. If it is, I'll be happy to come and bring my RE0 and Shure E2c.

Oh, that sounds great!  Thank you!

 

Where abouts are you located?

post #58 of 78

I live in Mississauga, Erin Mills and Dundas area.

 

My past meets have been very good times indeed!

 

If there's enough interest, I'll post a new thread to confirm details.

post #59 of 78

I am in...I just probably need to carpool with someone.

I'm in!

 

I don't have a DAC at the moment, but I can bring my laptop, Dynahi and Grado HP-2.  Would be great to borrow a DAC for the meet, the Dynahi + HP2 are a sexy combo.
