If you are bringing several headphones, it's probably a good idea to store your stuff in a bag and try out various rigs (get permission from owners first before you plug in). When I first met rhythmdevils, he came up to my table and dumped all of his headphones from his bag on to my table. 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.
Those experienced with meets will often bring a buddy if they have a dedicated table to look after their stuff. Plaza B,C,D will be dedicated to vendors and attendees who bring in heavy stuff (DACs, amps, nuclear reactors, etc.) Plaza A will also have a few dedicated vendor and attendee tables. 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.
I'll see y'all in August!
THat sucks Ti. Always a pleasure to meet you. Perhaps next NorCal meet :)
Plan on attending. My first meet ever! Looking forward to seeing all the fantastic equipment and finally meeting fellow headfiers.
Set-up at 8:30 and <break down at 5pm> is GREAT news!
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.
