Definately want to hear the Valhalla. I'm itching to get an Asgard myself.

Well, unless they sell before the meet I'll be bringing a Matrix M-Stage, Purity Audio KICAS and Schiit Asgard with power cables. No headphones though lol

I'd be excited to pair your Asgard with someone's Denon cans. I'd get to demo my whole rig before I buy it. lol

sweet! thanks. I really wish someone had a LCD-2 to try out though. I put myself on the preorder list but I'm hesitant to buy.

I plan to be there too with the new Liquid Fire amp.

My son and I will be coming from Midland. I was trying to bring my new LYR but sadly it looks like it will not be ready.

I've made my plans and can now happily confirm my attendance.  I'll be bringing my modest collection for what that's worth.  Phones:  audio-technica ATH-ESW9, Sennheiser HD595, Phiaton MS400, AKG K240 Sextett.  Amp/DAC:  Emu 0404 USB, digiZoid "portable subwoofer", and I'm trying to decide on a suitable source that isnt my big-ass ASUS G73 laptop.

I'll also bring a six-pack of my choosing that's something I'm fond of.  Probably Old Rasputin or something of that sort.

Dieing to give those ESW9s a listen. I will probably pick up a pair later this year.

If a few things work out in the timing I may have a pair of LCD2s.

They are my favorite phones for most music I listen to so I wouldn't dream of not bringing them.  I just wish I had one of my old desktop amps still;  I'm kind of in-between proper amps right now so hopefully some folks will be gracious enough to let us listen to them through their rig.  (Personally I'm dying to hear them on the Schiit amps)

 

I'm really stuck on what to do about a source.  All my lovingly-collected FLACs are on my laptop and the only other sources I have are my Samsung Captivate and an iPad; neither of which I can use with my Emu 0404 DAC.  Although I am excited about showing off what the digizoid ZO can do from a portable source and MP3s.  I also have a Sony SCD-CE595 but my SACD collection is pitifully small and the player itself is bigger than the laptop so can't really see much use in bringing that as an alternative. 

 

I was thinking ~If~ it's alright with the organizer, I might go ahead and bring my laptop and just keep it in its backpack if it becomes clear there just won't be enough space.  Or perhaps we can work out a trade?  Since our friend the owner seems to enjoy a healthy libation or two, and I happen to be a bit of a single-malt scotch lover, I'll promise to bring a bottle of something nice for his shop (Mayhaps Talisker, Lagavulin, Glenlivet 15, etc) and for the attendees to enjoy, and in exchange we maybe try to squeeze out a little room for my laptop. :)  I promise not to bring a mouse, just the power supply, if that helps.
