San Diego - Any interest? I can try to find a decent venue at a low price. I KNOW there are... - Page 5

From the city website, it looks like the hours are noon-8 p.m. on Saturdays, closed Sundays, and weekday evenings 4-8 p.m.

Saturdays are most likely the best time then. Depending on the date, I may or may not make it to this one.

Don't think you'd get a good turn out on a week night.  I'd try to make it on Saturday depending on date.

Bump. Set a date and I'll try my best to make it.

though I live 2 hours away from San Diego (LA) but I will definitely go. It will be my first time going to a meet :). I will bring some gears with me: Shure SRH 440, RE0, Philips Uptown ^_^.

Yeah this thread has been crawling along I hope it does come together it would be my first as well.

So I guess nothing ever happened? It's been over a month since the last post.

 

Well, I am in if one ever happens. I work a lot of Saturdays though. Sundays are better.

 

The only gear I have right now is an iBasso D7 and Etymotic ER-4S.

 

In a few weeks I should have a Stax 407 with 323 amp AND a Smyth Realiser...

I'm still hoping for a local meet but figured I'd get my fix at the upcoming LA one.  But after that, would prefer to drive 15 min vs over 2 hours.

I would be interested.

I think the meet can happen if we can find a place to meet up biggrin.gif

I can't make the LA meet, that's why I would love to do a San Diego meet.

 

I guess it's a little bit of a catch-22 finding a place. I would imagine we need to know how many people would attend before a suitable location can be found. But we won't know how many people until we find a location.

 

Does anyone have a relationship with any of the local hi-fi stores? I would think they would be into it since it means some added exposure for their store especially if they sell headphones.

 

I have never been to any of the local hi-fi shops, so I have no sense about how open they are to things like this.

 

I have read that the San Diego Music and Audio Guild used to meet at local stores. Are they still around?

 

Otherwise, there are some cheap places to rent meeting rooms like local libraries. I know the Coronado library will let you rent their rooms for free. San Diego libraries charge and even charge a percentage of any tickets or revenue from the event being held. But if we can charge a nominal fee just to cover the rental of the room, that would probably be pretty cheap.

 

Anyone want to throw out some potential dates so we could get a ball park head count? I don't mind doing the research on finding a place.

Sounds like the Coronado library might be the best bet.  Then I can get dropped off while family enjoys the beach.

 

I'm good for end of Aug and beyond.

So maybe if we can get a turn out for this one while it's still free, we can either do a raffle or a collection of a few bucks a piece to raise money for a San Diego library after.  

 

Wish I could help more but my time is taken up with new baby and still new to the area.

Another thought, although I think it might be hard to find anyone willing, is to do it at someone's home that has a home theater setup. I would be happy to do personalized calibrations on a Smyth Realiser so people could hear how it works. I could even do the measurements with your headphones.

 

It's best demo'd on a high end 5.1 or 7.1 surround system, but can also be pretty effective with just a 2 channel system.

 

At a library, this would be hard to pull off unless someone brought a decent 2 channel or 5.1 setup. Not sure how portable a good system can be...

 

As far as dates go, I work most weekends, but I know for most people the weekends are the only option. I may have a free Sunday in August though. The only possible August weekend days are 8/11 or 8/12. After that, for weekends, I am looking at after Labor Day.
