Sorry LostChild1, I had a morning training on saturday so I only arrived around 13h30. Anyway, on my side, even though I spent quite a lot of time wandering around, making people try gear and explain to some the difference between closed and open headphones, the importance of impedance and so forth, I still had enough time to enjoy myself with the other meet members and the gear we had on hand.
My only regret is that the Ultrasone edition 8 were stuck at customs and we couldn't get a hand on them. Crap. I also missed the denon D7000, which I really wanted to listen.
Again, I respect Petyot's opinion that he doesn't like his stuff being used by others. It's his opinions, and it is fully valuable in the sense that he bought it and wants it not to be harmed. However, bringing my own stuff to the meet made me have the chance to try a variety of headphones on it and have a very good opportunity to see which ones have good synergy with it. Also, Petyot, by not coming, missed the opportunity to have fun with us, meet new people (and new head-fi members, since quite a few people told me they would register and become active, probably in the next meetings) and industry guys like the furutech rep, Samuel Furon from l'Atelier-Audio, Patrick from Audioshop, the UHF mag guy. I also saw the last part of John Atkinson, Stereophile's editor, about speaker measurements and why they are totally irrelevant for most people, etc.
Also, Petyot, you could have come to do PR and present the gear (as well as listening to it) without bringing your stuff, that would have been much appreciated, especially sunday where I was alone in the room from 10h00 to 14h30.
