I purposely picked up a call in Mineola for Friday, which should only take a half a day, so they can't send me away. It would be ludicrious to miss my own party.

 

I have some small ones now but I may need a big fly swatter.  That is to prevent people from plugging or unplugging stuff from the amps/DACs without muting the volume pot first...

I have them on mp3. 
 

 



You're not kidding.  When my friend handed them off to me, he gave me a shopping bag full that weighed about 30 lbs.  He isn't expecting to get them back anytime soon.

 

My original plan was to rip them to MP3 as well, but I really did end up getting a car with a cassette player.

You have no problems GG.

What's a cassette player. Is that like one of those things with 8-tracks? tongue.gif

Great! I will try my best to make at least the first half of the day. Thanks to everyone who has helped organize this.beerchug.gif

Everyone is encouraged to go through their toy collection and consider donating Audio/Computer/Music/Video items for the Not So Silent Auction. Proceeds from the NSSA go to pay for the room. The more the auction generates it means that there will be less need for Donations.

Please remember to bring cash for bidding on cool items. I seriously lament that last time I didn't have enough cash to win the Grado RS1's, so try not to emulate me. Bring lots a cash wink.gif

As an aside if the shipping gods smile on us I will be bringing the Prototype of Exemplar Audio's upcoming Statement Headphone Amplifier. John Tucker would like some feedback from those golden ears amongst us.

I'll definitely be bringing a few goodies for the NSSA:  chief among them, a set of poor condition yet functional normal-bias gammas!

Anyone making name tags? Or should I bring blanks, if I can get away from work (15 hour days).

post #338 of 405
We don't need no stinking name tags (Bages).

My Lyr will be arriving JUST in time to get to the meet!  I might need a little more room now as I'll have the Woo 6SE and Lyr running off a DAC from my MBP.  

 

I also got confirmation that I'll have the Norse 8-conductor cables (for LCD-2s) in time.

2.) Could somebody, anybody puuuuuuulleeeeeeeezzzzeee bring some single flange tips that fit Future Sonics Atrios that they wouldn't mind me trying out/buying off them?  I'm on a warpath to find the best tips for the Atrios.  Tips that would fit include most Shure, Klipsch, Etymotic, Westone....my findings will be written up here: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/536912/review-future-sonics-atrios-comparison-between-different-tips

 

 

Thoughts, anyone?

Assuming you are taking the GWB across: if you get to the GWB at a leisurely 930 you will roll up a little after 10, but you wont miss much of anything except first pick at a table. After 9am traffic should not be particularly bad. Maybe a few sticky spots, but generally smooth sailing. 

 

There isnt a "start time" or sign in. Its a very informal thing. People filter in and out at all odd hours... There is an unwritten rule that the meet doesn't actually start until Bozebuttons shows up. It is still important to get there early so you can listen to a bunch of other stuff to adequately appreciate how awesome his gear is. 

 

Plan to stay for dinner if you can. Its not worth getting stuck in "escape NY" traffic, and a great way to spend a couple more hours hanging out. The drive home will be a million times better for it.
