EDIT: 8/31

 

I think it's time we start considering our computer sources (so I can get an idea for floorspace). Do most of us have laptops or are there going to be a few desktops too? CD collections? Ipods, LoDs.

 

Please post about how much space you will need - the sooner the better.

 

ph34r.gifSPOILER ALERT: RESERVED FOR A SPECIAL SPOILER AFTER THE MEET. tongue.gif

Of course this is variable depending on how many headphones we bring. ;q (Ahaaha just kidding guys)

I can bring AD2000's and probably some Pro 2900s by then. Not sure what else at the moment.

post #4 of 50

You forgot to put the location in the main post.

 

The 10th would be better for me... unless something comes up of course.  wink.gif

 

I hope to bring: LCD-2 with Stefan Audio Art cable, Beyer T1, HiFiMan HE-5, modded JVC DX1000, Eddie Current Balancing Act 45/2a3, modded-Benchmark DAC1, and a Darth Beyer 770.  Also hopefully my Mapletree Audio HD-250 amp.  And then there is my Jade HE 1.3, but I'm not sure if the HE-90 has Omega headphone outputs -- I currently don't have an electrostatic amplifier.

I will plan on attending, I can do the 3rd but not the 10th.  I don't have anything too special but I'll bring what I have:

 

Cambridge Dacmagic

Woo Wa6

HD650

RS-1

post #6 of 50

The location is Utah Audio in Sandy. On the corner of State and 10600 South.

post #7 of 50

Will there be enough tables?

I assume we bring our own power strips.

 

post #8 of 50

That's a lot of gear-what's in it for you? Haha at least you can try my AD2Ks!

What's in it for me?  Hopefully hearing something I like better than what I have.  That's why I suggested to the organizer to increase the publicity.

 

Headphones are virtually nothing to bring.  It's the amps and cables and computers and setup that are the annoying part -- and I'm dreading that.

 

post #10 of 50

I'm wary of posting too extensive of a list of gear i want to bring.

 

I should most likely bring a variety of orthos.

 

YH-100

YH-1

YH-3

Pro-30

T10

T20 v1

T20 v2

T40 v1

HOK80-2

 

I should probably also bring some vintage AKG:

K240 Sextett EP

K240-M

K240-DF

K270 Playback

K340

 

And some estats:

ESP-950

ECR-500

Maybe Stax Lambda, Stax SR-X III?

 

My only exciting amps are diy estat amps, and I'm not done enclosing them, but i can bring them anyway.

I should bring my Bijou as well but nobody ever seems to care.

 

Send me a PM if there is something in my gear list in my profile that you would like me to bring.

Ah, yes!! "IT LIVEESS!"

 

Nice to see the soul of Utah shaping up so quickly!

 

 

And yep, the Computer sources...... I'm scared too. But will probably bring the whole thing. :D We can't sacrifice our quality should they be a part of it after-all.
     Eric... your collection, I don't know what to do with this. ;/ I'll figure that one out later.

I posted the stuff i should bring on principle. But I'm not going to bring mbquarts, etc, unless someone asks.

I also have a HD800 and JH13 Crystal Piccolino cable for people to try (a must try)

Yes, bdh pm'd me.  Appreciate that.  Also looking to meet local headfiers.  the 3rd is the long Labor day weekend and a lot of people may already have plans to be out of town.  The 10th will give us more time to prepare and publicize.  I really hop to hear a Stax 009 if someone can locate one, may be with Blue Hawaii?  I know I am dreaming.
