Jeff, great job organizing this. I love how the first post shows all of the hotel details already and an up-to-date list of attendees and gear. Nice job.

Thanks Dave. It's been a long time since the last meet. I am pleased to see the interest growing!
Today I turned on one of my amps I have not powered for several months. At that moment the fuse failed. After careful inspection I determined it was likely caused by the age of the fuse (over a year old) and higher than normal start up current. I would not be surprised to see other fuses fail once setup at the meet. It wouldn't hurt for everyone to have a few spare fuses tucked away.
Very nice! Congratulations. I am sure all of us will very happily help you break it in!
According to the ad, it ships from Scottsdale. Wonder if they'd be interested in showing it at our meet?
I was going to bring mine as well. Also, would name tags be a good idea?
It looks like I'll be bringing mor stuff as well. I just bought a pair of Denon D2000's w/diy markl mod's
and a Cryo Parts cable. I just built a Senn. cable using Jena wire and have just ordered more supplies
to build another Cardas Senn. cable, so we can do a little Senn. HD cable rolling. I'll bring the stock
cable as well.
Cool! We need more gear! I have contemplated modding my D2k's and wondered how the mods sounded. Does yours have the J$ pads? For my WA6, I have a pair of Shuguang CV181-Z Treasures on the way. I hope to have at least 200 hours burn-in before the meet.
IMO name tags are a must! I am pre-printing name tags and name cards for each table (to identify the gears owner).
Name-tag-wize, what about wearable holders? I could pick some up.
I'm really liking my new Nuforce Icon HDP and HD 650 combo (I'll post a pic below). It has exceeded my expectations and seems to be a pretty remarkable value. Its usb section is particularly impressive playing 24/96 HDTrack downloads. I just ordered a new laptop so I'll be bringing that to play 24/96 files to my HDP through foobar and wasapi output.
@funch - Awesome news that you are planning on bringing a few HD cables. I was actually just getting ready to post asking if anyone had an aftermarket cable they would be bringing. I'd be very interest in A/B comparisons of the stock cable.
I think name tags with both our head-fi user names and real first names would be really helpful. I'm planning on bringing my digital camera as well, although its just a consumer version.
Sure, no problem. I was thinking of putting the forum name on top, and the first name under that. Does that sound OK with everyone?
I don't have any kind of printing program, so it would just be in block letters, if that's OK.
