Yeah we are running 230v shuko plugs. Too bad you can't come, would've been fun :)

 

Anyway the meet is mostly meant for us danes active on our 'only' head-fi community forum in Denmark.

Next meet? Well, we have two planned meets per year. One in Jutland, usually no more than 100 km away from the German border, held in spring. And then we have one around copenhagen in autumn, which is further away and you need to cross a certain bridge and that is quite costly.

 

Sometimes we have small gatherings and such, but not too common.

 

Is quite nice, this year we have the Stax distributor hosting the meet.

This could get to be a very expensive meeting. If you buy an sr-009, will they pay the bridge toll for you?

The upcoming meeting is an hour's drive away, no tolls. Actually I don't have the funds to buy the 009 right now, even if I wanted to. But who knows, think I could loan the money ;-)

Not only would you have to buy the 009's but you'd need the proper amp for it as well. We're talking high voltage. :eek:

Well... I'll confess and say right away.. I'd probably use my T1 for some months. Forgive me for my dirty thoughts!!

I'm not sure if he'd have any walking around money left after your proposed new venture. Then again it'll probably take two years to build an amp that'll please him.

Strange that how often today's endgame becomes forgotten tomorrow after one hears or sees something new that catches their fancy.

Looks like a Lyr with stretched tubes.

Yes, but this is my endgame rig today :p

 

I have some tube socketsavers which is why the tubes look stretched. They are the Philips Miniwatt E88CC I just got today. Very pleased with them!

Enjoy it, just remember that tomorrow is just another day away. Doesn't Schiit make some good Schiit? I'm looking to get a fully tricked out Bifrost, I pulled the trigger and Amazon fumbled.

Good thing I won't have enough money tomorrow to upgrade, so I can just enjoy this without wanting more ;)

 

Yeah, I truly believe Schiit makes good **** for not too much money. I have the Biforst Uber with USB and it's a good DAC. Enjoy!
