Well, no L1 from me. I was hoping to replace my SRH840s with them but they just didn't really work for me.

Really looking forward to listening to all of these great amps to help me decide which I want to buy for my K702's!

Final numbers are now coming in. We should have a total of 82 tables of which 60 are vinyl/CD vendor related and 22 audio/headphone related.

As mentioned previously space is available for anyone wanting to bring their own gear in both the main ballroom and the smaller more intimate private room which will host six tables. We have arranged to have someone in charge of the smaller separate room so if participants have equipment in that room and want to leave to check out all the stuff in the big room, or attend the auction at 11AM for some nice goodies, they can do so knowing that a fellow Head-FIer is watching their gear.

I will have a couple dozen "out or print" Audio Fidelity Gold CDs for sale. Most played once, the rest in shrink wrap.

Audio Fidelity or Mobile Fidelity?

post #190 of 238

Audio Fidelity, the label Steve Hoffman is associated with. By the way, this is my 5,000th post, I need to get a life.

Interesting. I see where Greg put out a pretty good email to his vendors.

Greg has been terrific to work with. He is putting together the vinyl side of the event. We seem to have a great synergy by combining the two shows as they compliment one another. This is a wonderful opportunity to have a great foundation on which to build larger shows in the future. One has to start somewhere and with the anticipated attendance of several hundred people it has a great beginning thanks to those who support our efforts both by attending and exhibiting.

I'd like to officially confirm my attendance.  Is there still any table space left for non-vendors?  If so, i'd like to request half a table.  I'll be bringing the following items:

 

     -LCD-2 Rev. 1 with balanced ALO chainmail cable

     -Audio-GD NFB-1 (Sabre32 DAC version)

     -M2tech Hiface EVO

     -Schiit Lyr

     -Firestone Audio Cute Beyond + Supplier

     -Musical Fidelity V-DAC

 

     The latter two won't be actively used in my setup and will be available if anyone want's to test them in their setup.  Since selling/trading will not be frowned upon there, I will likely be willing to accept offers for sale/trade on all except the Hiface EVO  I'm hoping to try out some of the other flagship headphones to replace the LCD-2.  I love the LCD-2 but I'm really craving something more comfortable with better soundstage and imaging without sacrificing too much bass and midrange tone. T1 perhaps?  Guess I'll just have to listen and find out.  

 

     I also noticed the Fostex HP-A8 under the Moon Audio section on the first page.  I was just wondering the other day if you all were going to be selling that but I guess that answers my questionbigsmile_face.gif.  I like the idea of moving to a decent all-in-one but I tried the Burson all-in-one at my last meet and wasn't too fond of the sound with my LCD-2.  Everything seemed too rounded off for my tastes.  Regardless, I'm super excited about this meet, nearly everything I wanna hear in one place.  Only things missing on my list are the HD-700 and the new NAD M51 DAC.  Looking forward to meeting everyone there.

Head-FI Member Table Space

 

If you're bringing gear to set up in the Members room, how much table space will you need? A table is 8ft. long. Shoot me a PM as soon as you determine your needs.

Show management (Danny) wants to be certain everyone is accommodated.
