Joint European Head-Fi/HIFI-FORUM.de Meet in Berlin, Sept. 11th. It's on!

We're proud to announce that we'll have not one, not two, but three world premieres at the meet:

 

We'll have two each of the brand-spanking new Sennheiser HD558 and HD598, successors to the 555 and 595.

In addition, Denon will let us hear the new Denon AH-D1100 and AH-NC800!

Addendum: The new beyerdynamic t5p will be there as well.

Aaaaand another one: We have the improved Sleek Audios SA6-R.


 

The kind folks at Hifi im Hinterhof have agreed to host our first Central European/German head-fi meeting in Berlin on Saturday, September 11th 2010. We'll have two of the store's dedicated studios exclusively to ourselves. The official headphone-evaluation part of the meeting will go from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Let's turn that into an advantage and have the first audiophile brunch in the history of head-fi! After 3 p.m. (give or take a couple of minutes), we'll go out for a couple of drinks and bites to eat and then enjoy Berlin's night life.

 

Check out our sister thread @ HIFI-FORUM.de. It's obbviously in German, but the language of gadgetry is universal, I suppose.

Any better excuse to go to Berlin than this?

Let me be the first to sign up:

 

I will not be bringing all my stuff because of transportation limits. I need to be able to carry it in a large backpack I think I can bring the following gear:

 

Headphones: Beyerdynamic T1, SR325i, ER-4S
Amps: Meier Concerto, iQube, RSA P-51 Mustang, iBasso D10
Sources: MacBook Pro, 80 GB iPod with LOD

Welcome aboard!

 

I've only just realized today that Hifi im Hinterhof offers two audiophile vacation homes at affordable rates, if you need a place to stay. Pension Kreuzberg is literally next door. Riehmers Hofgarten would be the fancier option.

Of on holliday to Italy that weekend so can't attend

post #5 of 186

Very interesting, I might be in.

 

Headphones: Thunderpants.

Unfortunately I couldn't carry heavier gear by train or plane, so it will be just them.

Don't worry, our host will have some hardware on display, you can always plug into their amps..

Awesome, I'll be there! Since I'll be traveling by train, I bring along my K701 and my Little Dot I+ with several tubes (if I manage to transport that much that is).

Unfortunately I'm poor. This would be the closest meeting ever to where I live, but I think I can't make it, except I find some EUR 30 flight or something.

A backyard (= Hinterhof) meeting of guys with strange looking gear on September 11th? Think twice!

post #10 of 186

Don't think I can make it...

If you are into dance this event might be interresting to anyone going to Berlin September 11th:

 

Armin van Buren and Paul van Dyk in the O2 World Arena.

See my post on hifi-forum, might or might not be attaining. Depends on how much I suffer from being around at IFA for audio-technica and if I celebrate my birthday this day.

 

Do I have to confirm and reserve a place or can I just drop by, if I feel like it?
