Omaha Head-Fi Meet, #2! (@ Custom Electronics :: Oct 9th!)

post #1 of 100
Thread Starter 
 
 

Hello everybody, let's get  a list going of who can come to a head-fi meet. Larry, owner of Custom Electronics is a very gracious host, and took care of us last year. (also a big shout out to Tim who helped organize it last year and this year!) They gave us a generous discount on products in store  and they also hooked us up with a free lunch. They had a PS1000 for us to listen to with some very appropriate gear behind it. No promises about this year, but they're giving us a place to sit around and listen to music for a day. Nobody can complain about that!

 

There may be some cost associated with this for example If we get some sponsored gear shipped to us and we are required to pay for return shipping, we will subsidize the cost of shipping it back by charging a 5$ entry fee. In such a case, anything extra will be applied to head-fi as a donation. As of right now, any and all agreed sponsorships are taken care of and will not incur the group a shipping fee. I doubt comply wants a bunch of used tips back, and considering headroom is paying return shipping, as it stands right now the event is free. Yes, free and I'm doing my best to keep it that way. My goal is a free event that's bigger and better than last year. This is coming together better than I'd hoped and I'm trying to snow ball it into a mini Can Jam that all of us will remember (at ;east until next years)!

 

Omaha area or not, any head-fi member is invited to come join us (if you're not a member and would like to attend, please register on the forum and introduce yourself). Last year, we had a great group and no doubt we will have a similar level of friendliness and eagerness to learn. We have nailed down an October 9th date, which is most compatible with the largest number of people and Larry (the owner) suggested it. Considering it's his store, I want to do our best to make sure we're within his schedule; he wants to hear some kit too!

 

Official Time: 10AM CST to 5PM CST

 

Over 1500$ in raffle prizes!

 

This includes time to setup and tear down. In no earlier than 10, out no later than 5. I'm sure they'll be very forgiving, but let's not spoil such a gracious host. We will have 3 rooms, 1 larger room and two smaller rooms. I believe we'll have quite a bit of room this time. If everyone shows up we'll have a total of 17 bodies there, more than likely, and since we had 12 and only 1 room last year, this gives us quite a bit of space to work with.

 

Again, this event is getting better and better, and providing we can get more people will surely eclipse last year's event. If you didn't make it last year, you owe it to yourself to come this year!

 

  • Custom Electronics will be providing venue, and possibly some surprises as they did last year (see above). Larry told me saturday they would also have some Demo PS1000's on loan from Grado.
  • Headphone.com will be sending some of their gear (micro stack, ultra desktop with psu for audition, and total airhead for raffle).
  • Whiplash audio also has agreed to assist us with some of the gear for the event. 1 HD800 recabled, 1 iqube, and 1 whiplash twag lod.
  • It looks like Head-Direct (storefront for hifiman) is sending us the not yet released RE262, also to be raffled at the end of the event.
  • Comply will be providing tips for the IEMs present, these will be the new filtered tips (T-100, and T-400) to fit the Grado iGi, Grado GR8, and Westone UM1 that will be present.
  • ALO Audio is sending us one of their high end sennheiser headphone cable.
  • Spirit world will be providing venue for discussion as well as a free bourbon tasting after the event proper for those interested, also they will give a 10% discount on liquor, wine, and beer, and those who buy a sandwich at lunch time recieve a free cookie, bar, or soft drink.
  • Naturespace.com has provided some 24 bit digital audio content for us to use as testing material for those who would like to do so. Also they have provided some 16 bit content that I can burn to an audio CD. This should give us a fun toy to play with on some of the gear.

Anything and everything that isn't on the gear list. =)
 

 

Rare items specifically would be appreciated, like the KSC-35 for example since they are pretty hard to come by at a reasonable price and eclipsed by the Ksc-75 in the value segment. Most importantly your presence however as I stated. Me and 100 headphones is fun, yes, but 50 headphones and 10 people to discuss them with is so much better. =)

 

Also, in an attempt to reach others we don't know are in the omaha area, can we signature this thread so we can get more views? I'd love to see more new faces at this meet.

Please PM me your list of gear so that I can add it to the initial posting. If you wish to not include your name, this is fine. I just figured it would be nice to have them.

post #9 of 100

I could bring my Dual turntable, but I know they'll have much newer and "fancier" turntables at the store. If anyone wants to hear the magic of vintage German engineering, let me know.

I wasn't able to make it last time, but I will definitely come this time. I don't have anything to bring. Which I hope is ok?

That's fine, the goal of a meet is to find new gear that you like, assistance in shopping around if you will. It's a free why to try new combos, seek out that much desired synergy. You don't need to have your own gear, but hopefully something you find at the event should drive you to buy some. We have a slight space issue, so maybe 15 people, and a few people without gear helps alleviate that space issue. =)

As long as we find a date that I can work around (preference would to NOT  be around a holiday) I'm in with all my gear...except my turntable...sorry, it was a pain to bring last time...

Thanks nabisco. Tell your friends, if you aren't a head-fi member, get registered and sign up. We want 15-20 people signed up because maybe only 10 might come. What happened last year anyway. =)
