Was a really fun day, thanks to everyone who came and made it such a great event... Couldn't have done it without you all!
First and foremost, a massive thank you goes out to George, Cornelius and Rendra from Addicted to Audio. They not only provided the venue free of charge but went a step further and hired all the chairs and tables you see in the pictures. Not to mention all the time they spent on Friday and Saturday helping me setup and then clean / move everything afterwards... It just wouldn't have been possible without them, so again, a huge thank you to George, Cornelius and Rendra.

Next a great big thanks to Jaben Australia. Josh from Jaben provided the raffle prizes on the day, which, due to his extreme generosity meant that there was something like a 1/4 chance of winning a prize at the time of the draw... I was lucky enough to walk away with the Goldring DR100, which to my suprise is actually a pretty darn good headphone for the price, thanks Josh! For those wondering, the grand prize was the awesome Go-Vibe Porta Tube which for such a small and portable package somehow manages to drive the LCD-2 orthos with authority. Many thanks Josh!

Last but not least, thanks to Dan from Unique Melody Australia for coming out on the day. He brought out UM's whole range, of which I really loved the flagship UM Miracles but found that the "bottom-tier" Marvels were no slouch either... When I build my portable setup in the future I'll be looking no further than UM that's for sure. Dan also mentioned that UM Aus would be coming out with a new site in a few weeks so be on the lookout for that, I'll definitely be watching with intent.

With just the gear that these three brought along, we could of had a stand up meet, it certainly wouldn't have been the same without them. I think between Jaben and A2A, every single flagship bar STAX was covered, not to mention the huge amount of AMPs, DACs, sources, IEMs and portables they lugged along as well. I look forward to the next meet when I can hopefully invite them all back again, we we're truly spoilt at this meet.
A huge thank you to each of you again,
