Thank you and I appreciate your time.

$100 in tolls ??? Must be a parallel universe, $30 - $40 maybe.

edit: Actually about $43 in tolls from center city Philadelphia.

I just checked my schedule and unfortunately due to something silly such as me working that day I will be unable to make it.

Not sure if this has been asked before, but will the JH3A combo be making an appearance at this years NYC meetup? Either a demo unit or god forbid, a delivered order :)

 

As a rule, are IEM demos something that happens at these events (assuming head-fiers have good hygiene) or is it a bit personal?

Just want to confirm that I'll be there.

FYI for folks in Manhattan or passing through: the 7 Express subway stops at Times Square on 42nd and at GCT.
 

 

All good except one minor detail, there are no 7 'express' trains on the weekends, only local, so any 7 train heading into Queens will do.

I'm talking both ways, unless exiting NYC is not as expensive as entering.

As long as the weather is good, I expect to make it.

 

I'll bring:

MHDT labs Havana, WooAudio GES, Stax O2 mk1, Headamp GS-1.

 

I am thinking I will setup in the alternate room so that it's quieter.

With any bit of luck, I'll finally get to compare the LCD-2 to my O2.

well bridges around nyc generally have tolls in only one direction, so the math might not be as simple as multiplying by 2. perhaps you could coordinate and share expenses with others traveling from your vicinity. yikes &  jp#s are in pa & ross (baka####) might be too. and there are some folks in so. nj that might be coming too, such as frankl, and there are some folks coming from other parts of jersey too (eg. wavoman, nikongod). poke around and you might find others too.

Thanks Asr, looks easy enough  ;)

I may be bringing my Grub+SSMH combo, along with whatever headphones I might have by then - probably still the K501, HD580, maybe a DT770/80, maybe a pair of Sextetts. Pretty simple stuff. I might also be bringing a friend with HF2s, a uDac, and an SSMH.

It would be a bit tough, especially since I'm going up to my buddy's house in upstate NY this weeked for the Estrogen Escape Extravaganza - A weekend filled with jamming, beer, snowmobiling (if there's snow on the ground), ATVing (if there's no snow) and general slothing around, but the possibility exists.

Yes, that is correct.  The Verrazano only has a toll  entering Brooklyn but not entering Staten Island.  Same thing with the GW.  No toll going to New Jersey.
