Vancouver area meet or get-together? - Page 4

post #46 of 205
I am fine either way, It might be a good idea for both reasons, eg, traffic and the game to reschedule.Weekends are pretty much free for me, what about the week after. I would be fine for that!

I'm down for either weekend.  I think we'd still be fine for Saturday if we're meeting at 6:00.  The game starts at 5:00, and usually streets are very empty in the middle of a playoff game (not before or after though).  I think the biggest question is do we have a TV in the room so we can watch the end of the game?

Wow...headphones or hockey playoffs.  I'd have a hard time choosing that one.  Even if I could see the end of the game.  o2smile.gif

I may be able to make it - not able to confirm at this point. I have the gear in my sig available.

Hi everyone, please check in and let us know if we should push this off due to hockey or not?

 

cegli - there is a TV in the room.

I'm fine with this weekend. Weekends after that are a little less likely. I don't think I can make the next weekend at all.
post #52 of 205

I'm fine with this weekend still.  We'll probably just be mostly setting up while the game finishes, and I'll just watch while setting up.  It'd be cool if you could come Steve_72.  I've always wanted to hear HD600s!

Must admit, I would rather not be there if it is going to be a hockey night thing. I would rather wait so that we can all focus on the reason we are meeting rather than hockey( nothing against hockey!) I am for postponing till the weekend after so we can enjoy both things separately, imagine if the game goes into extra time, we end up with little time listening and talking headphones and such!

The game should be over about 7pm or 7:30pm if there's OT, right?

 

If it's postponed could we put it off until some time after the weekend of the 14th? :/

I'm nervous about turnout because of the hockey game but also worried that if we push this off interest will wane.  It would be ideal to have a reasonable turnout to make this meeting worthwhile.  We should firm this up ASAP.  Below is my understanding of the status of the participants to date:

 

1.            VanCitySound – confirmed, neutral as to date

2.            ianmedium – confirmed, preference to postpone

3.            WobblyGoblin – confirmed, May 7thpreferred

4.            cegli – confirmed, okay with May 7thbut prefers to have game on TV

5.            ogle – confirmation indicated previously

6.            tonereef – confirmation indicated previously

7.            mudhole – confirmation indicated previously

8.            PhaedraCorruption – confirmation indicated previously, bringing 2 guests

9.            scottiebabie – unconfirmed

10.        Steve_72 – unconfirmed

11.        ardgedee – unconfirmed, can only potentially make May 7th

 

We need a few more of you to provide your thoughts before we decide what to do…

I am for this weekend but not if we end up having a TV there and hockey is on as I said. I am available most weekends so changing the schedule is fine with me
post #57 of 205

Haha, I don't need to have the game on the TV, I just thought people might like that.  Evidentally not :-P.  Believe me, as much as I like watching the playoffs, I like headphones more.  I'm fine with having no game, and focusing on listening.

I've suggested to VanCitySound that we actually set up a little earlier, say 5:15/5:30, so that we could start listening by 6:00. If however there are a few people who want to watch the game, maybe we should start later, say 7:30, setting up at 7:00ish.

 

Is parking really going to be an issue on a game night at the foot of Burrard?

 

However I just spoke with Travis - he isn't available this month, June would be good though and he could bring AKG701, Senn 650 and 800, and a NuForce HDP DAC/amp among other things. Perhaps we could get more people out with other interesting equipment if we put it off for a month. I'm still really interested in hearing the HE6, the new Stax Lambdas (preferably the 507), and especially the HE60 or HE90 with appropriate amplification - if anyone has one of these but is reluctant to bring it to a meet please PM me.
