Melbourne's 2nd Head-Fi Meet of 2011 - 10th September  

post #1 of 229
Thread Starter 

Welcome ladies and gents to the official thread for Melbourne's 2nd Head-Fi Meet of 2011!

 

For impressions of the meet, go here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/571071/melbourne-2nd-meet-2011-10-09-2011-impressions

 

It's been over six months since the last meet and I think it's surely time for another...

 

Due to concerns over capacity, the venue has been moved (see below). Thank you to George and Cornelius from Addicted to Audio who luckily had a space available for us!

 

Please be aware that all attendees must be registered before the event, follow the information below to book yourself a place!

 

Date: Saturday 10th September, 2011

 

Time: 10:30am to 5pm

 

Location: The entrance is on Woodlands Avenue but the building complex is at 792-796 High Street, Kew East. The venue has plenty of parking both on-site and on the street as well as a tram-stop 20 meters away!

 

Attendance fee: $10

 

What to bring: Any gear you have and would like to share, the more the merrier! Powerboards!! There are a number of sockets on the walls, however, it is highly recommended that you bring your own powerboard/s and adapters. It is also worth labelling your gear somehow as there will surely be duplicates.

 

Hygiene is a must for the event, please ensure you are clean and careful with everyone elses gear! E.g. No hair gel or mousse etc.

 

To confirm your attendance, please send me a private message through Head-Fi.org with the following details:

 

1. Name:

2. Forum ID:

3. Contact (Phone # and email):

4. Equipment you will be bringing:

5. Driving or public transport? Where will you be travelling from? Are you happy to carpool other attendees?

6. Dietary needs or allergies that I will need to take into account when ordering lunch.

7. Other comments and suggestions:

 

If you have any further suggestions or questions, feel free to post in this thread or send me a private message... I'm usually around.

 

Updates: 6/9/2011: The final attendance fee has been confirmed at $10. Please see post #195 of this thread for further details and requirements for the day.

 

9/8/2011: The meet has been moved to a new address due to concerns over capacity. Many thanks to George and Cornelius from Addicted to Audio for lending us the space for a day. Click the link for a video tour of the new venue, Sorry for my lazy camera(phone)work: http://vimeo.com/27472146

 

5/8/2011: AddictedtoAudio.com.au has confirmed their attendance with some very nice gear! The equipment list is becoming dreamy indeed.

 

30/7/2011:  For all those looking to attend or thinking about it, could I please ask that you state your interest in this thread as soon as possible. The sooner I know just how many people could be coming the cheaper and easier it will be for all.

No problems! Can't wait to listen to your W1000x and HD650, I've had a long time interest in them and missed out at the last meet.
