Official NYC Spring 2011 Meet March 19th - Page 25  

post #361 of 405

Hello all - I'm Mike Dias and I'll be the UE rep at the event. I know some of you from past events and I'm looking forward to making new friends while there. And besides from the audiologist - of course we'll also have show specials. If anyone has been considering getting a UE custom product - this is a great time to do it. Free impressions and a big discount. Not bad! And better yet - we'll have demos that you can check out and listen to. Feel free to ask any questions in the thread or PM me.

 

Mike

Could you imagine how far along we would be as a humane society, if, instead of blowing stuff up, we joined forces and cured all of the diseases that cause us such pain and sorrow.

 

Also, why bring out SACD and DVD-Audio? Didn't we learn our lesson from the Betamax Vs. VHS war. 

 

Isn't HDMI good enough? It's got everything you would ever need in one cable.

 

Why did the world's population cut down on wheat fields to grow corn and sunflowers. It costs the same to use to operate a car, and it made most prices related to food (from preparation to delivery, soar).

 

Why can't we find a cure for cancer and the common cold, but we can make triple layer boards that can make amazing electronic products.

 

Why does a i7 computer cost as much as a couch from Maurice Vallency, which is basically just a cow and some metal. A computer is an engineering marvel.

 

What is all this talk about "the cloud" while we deal with an antiquated school system. and roads where, until I get out of NYC, my wife and I hsve to ride the pegs on a SuperSort as if I am riding dirt on a Kawasaki KZ125.

 

Why do I have to sacrifice brand name toothpaste, so I can fill my tank with gas, and it's only 10% ethanol made from corn and sunflower seeds.

 

Just a few thoughts, since you asked....

I can bring a decent camera, but what should I do with it?

In addition, HFIMAN HE-500 planar driver headphones final version will be in the meet.


Hi Fang,

Thanks for attending!

If you have anything you planned to ship me for the May 7th Philadelphia Meet, I can collect it there to save the shipping if you don't need it for the 6 weeks between.

Great to have you back in the NY scene, Mike. I missed you, terribly. For anyone that doesn't know Mike, I would put him in the "great guy category" along with Vinnie, Fang, Drew, and countless others.

If you've been thinking about getting a set of impressions for a long time, not only is it free, but you don't even have to step outside to have them done. That, and the meet discounts will make it far more that worthwhile if you ever wanted to own a pair of high quality customs.

Not only that, but UE is being generous enough to have some of their products entered into the silent auction, which I'm sure that Yikes will have a blast making you guys compete against each other, for a price you won't find anywhere else.

 

Between UE and Head-Direct, we will be running the gauntlet of IEMs available for "Crazie Eddie" insane prices smile.gif. Pair that with a pair of TWAG or Blue Dragon balanced cables, and you will have everything that you need for audio bliss. Maybe we can ask Fang to offer his 262's with removable cables.

Just in time to unpack all of your expensive gear, receive a phone call that satellite parts fell on your house, and then pack up all of your gear, kiss the host and then drive home with high levels of anxiety in your heart and throat.

I'll put a brownie in a napkin with your name on it (unless you are one of the poor souls being tormented due to diabetes being a part of your life).

Thank you Aaron. And yes - UE will be donating 3 things to the silent auction. A triple.fi, a Logitech speaker station, and another surprise. I'll have demo ears to listen to so anyone can check out our new Reference Monitors and our latest UE-18's. And if anyone is interested in buying a set, like I mentioned before - there will be an audiologist on site in the afternoon (impressions will be free if you are going to purchase) and we'll also be offering a 25% discount for the show only. But mostly I'll be there to answer questions and to let you take a test drive. And hopefully - I'll have a bit of time to walk around and listen to everyone's gear. It's been a few years since I've gone to a meet.

 

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

 

Mike

Anybody know whether or not wifi works in the meet room?

cancer can be cured more often than folks think, but still not often enough. the trick is catching it early enough. too often by the time it's found and diagnosed it's spread, at which point cure becomes difficult, though control is sometimes possible. cancer is not one disease, but scores, perhaps hundreds, of different diseases with certain common features that gets labeled under the name 'cancer'. they require different approaches, but there cannot a a single cure for many many different entities.
 

glad you asked?  wink.gif

cool - glad you're able to join us! not sure about the wifi, though i'd guess so. Aaron probably could give you a more definitive answer.

Maybe yes and maybe no now. Not sure if I can make it to Saturdays meet. I hope you all have a lot of fun.

I have full confidence your photos will be nice after having seen your flickr photos.

Make sure you say tomorrow.  It's always nice to meet another photographer.  I'll be the one there with a measly D50.
