I don't know why he approached me out of everyone else, but we've become good friends since then and have become an incessant pair of troublemakers here on HF. I'm sure it was fate or some karmic connection. Of course I am not suggesting that you take the same approach as RD.

 

Hmm, okay I gotcha.  I'll just see how things shape up leading up to the meet.  If there's any interest here in this thread for the aformentioned cans, I'll shove 'em in a bag and bring 'em thus.  If not, then I can leave them at home and travel a little lighter.  Of course, feel free to add any of the above items to the gear list if you want - and I'll take it as notification that I should bring them.  I think RhythmDevils got more swagger than me so I definitely won't be going that route.  Plus, he's got the kind of gear to pull off that maneuver.

A good portion of Plaza A (~50%) will be dedicated place to hang out, talk, recharge batteries, etc. for those who don't bring in heavy stuff.

 

Wow, I'd feel terribly bad bringing a friend in tow, only to chain him to a table while I go and have fun.  Okay, this'll be simple then.  No table for me, just don't need one.  I'll just walk around and make intermittent pit stops in the hang out area.

Can't vouch for how it sounds to you, but they'll look sick to other people.  wink.gif

I originally posted interest in attending, but for multiple reasons I won't be able to make it. Have fun guys/gals and enjoy what looks to be a great meet.

Fingers crossed.

 

Tyll, any word from the NY suits?  It'd be nice for those of us who haven't met you before.

Set-up at 8:30 and <break down at 5pm> is GREAT news! bigsmile_face.gif

 

Having to break down at 4pm for the Bay Area Meets has been less than ideal...

 

Hope that Blubliss makes it!

Please add one to the NoCal contingent.  Looking forward to attending my first SoCal meet.

I shouldn't need much space at all, as I'm only bringing a transportable rig consisting of the following:
Squeezebox Touch (USB) --> iBasso D6 (analog RCA) --> Trends Audio TA-10.2 SE (speaker taps) --> HiFiMAN HE-6.

post #178 of 483
I may have so much crap (good audio gear) by then I may need two tables. Only if you have an extra, though, I don't want to go stealing a table from someone!biggrin.gif

Also, change of plans. Here is the stuff I will actually be bringing:

Headphones-the most important part:

Sennheiser HD650s
Yamaha HP2s
Woodied Grado SR60i w/ Barney cups in tow
Sennheiser HD280s



Turntables:

Sony 2251 w/ Infinity Black Widow tonearm, Shure V15V MR cartridge, and JICO SAS stylus (you're welcome to use it, but just keep in mind that tonearm/stylus combination are EXTREMELY fragile)

Ariston RD11s w/ Rega R200 tonearm (assuming Mr. Repair man is able to fix the ticking problem)

Technics SL-10

Dual 1219 if working, most likely will be.

Philips 212, I'm trying to fix the tonearm wires.



Phono Stage:

Jolida JD9 w/ Obbligato capacitors, OPAMP upgrades, and tube upgrades

Phono stage in my Marantz 2275

PLEASE!!! If you have a spare phono stage, let me borrow it for a day! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!


Amplifiers:

Bottlehead Crack

Marantz 2275

Fiio E9
CD Player:

I'll have my POS JVC Wondercrap DVD Player with me. Feel free to plug in your own source.


DAC: Intermittent Fiio E7


Also, feel free to plug in your own headphones. Just make sure they're high-impedance if you want to use the Bottlehead Crack!tongue.gif:cool:

Thanks again!

Ben
