Apologies for posting this late.
This was easily one of the best meets I've attended.
I want to first of all take the opportunity to thank Front panel Express (Heather, Paul et al) for hosting us in their wonderful facility.
Thanks to the sponsors Bottlehead, Kosmic, ALO, Audez'e for making this meet all that it was.
Alex, its always a pleasure to see you and wicked awesome of you to make it to the meet. Likewise to Steve (ASR). Disregarding our disagreements, I know one thing we have in common..we both love this hobby of ours and look forward to going to meets (i'm never gonna catch up with you on the latter, you are too awesome there :P ). It was a pleasure to spend some time with you after the meet. Hope to see you again soon ..err friend??
For me this meet was all about just that..meeting people rather than listening to gear. I was especially not going to miss it when Smeggy confirmed he was going to make it there. Dude..you are everything i imagined you to be..except British..lol that took me by surprise for sure, but did explain a lot of things about you. Love you man..and your work with the thunderpants. You have taken it to heights few can even begin to imagine and by the looks of it, still pushing the envelope with those err 75$ headphones with all the constant experiments. I was truly humbled by when I heard your latest TPs compared to the TPs I had tuned. The finish too just keeps getting better and better. Wish we had spent more time after the meet. Good luck with everything my dear friend. You are too nice a guy and Gil's brother is sure to be a happy camper with his new leatherpants
Josh, thanks for setting up a smashing system around the Ayon and the Balancing Act. One of the cleanest sounding and looking systems I have heard.
Wharfarat, it was a pleasure speaking to you sir.
It was great to see Griffin (Seamaster) walk away with the ALO cabled LCD-2..a better person that it could have gone to I cannot think of. And it was terribly nice of you to put up your HD650s on the raffle and was even better when Gil won it.
Gil, you are the anchor for these Seattle meets. Your zeal and passion in organizing this shin dig was a joy to behold. Look forward to seeing you again soon my brother.
Ethan, bro, thanks for graciously hosting me at your place for the night and for letting me have some one on one time with the stacker again .
Lastly, Ken Ball from ALO audio, dude..all I can say is, I so glad to have you as a friend. Thanks for driving us up there and back.
Some pics I snapped..
Ken the zen meister driving us to to the meet.
