I plan to be there!  Since the stuff I have will already be represented, I just plan to listen and socialize (...and envy, and drool, etc.).biggrin.gif

For some of the newer folks coming to try some high end stuff, do make the effort to get to know some well mastered and reference material.  Make CD's and/or bring a digital transport device.  I like AC/DC and lots of popular material too but don't blame the gear and phones when you get to hear what it actually sounds like.  wink.gif

 

We will have more quiet listening rooms so some more closed type phones won't have any inherent advantages like in some noisier environments.

I should be in. Just bringing myself and hungry ears.

Thread Starter 

To add to the above, we will be assigning people/gear to rooms soon. Will provide diagrams with table locations.

Small change:

I will most likely NOT be bring the Philips 212 as I fudged up the recable. On the other, better hand, I am getting a very nice modified Bottlehead Crack tomorrow or Tuesday (cross feed switch, Neutrik locking headphone jack), no speedball (YET:)), so I will definitely be bringing that, and I am borrowing a Channel Islands Audio VPP-1 phono stage with extant VAC-1 power supply. With his permission, or if I have bought it by then, I will bring that. Oh, I might bring a Project/One DR-220 turntable, a very nice CEC made table.

Thanks!redface.gif

Planning on attending. I do have a Sigma/404, a normal bias Sigma and my 007 Mk1.

My Exstata is having "technical difficulties" and have not had the inclination to work on it while I work on my KGSSHV,  but not sure yet if the KGSSHV will be ready by then.

Looks like I'll be able to make it. Don't know exactly what I'll bring yet, but should have both an electrostatic and a dynamic rig. 

post #86 of 483

Sorry for the late decision. I will be bringing my gear and just need a half table for HRT MusicStreamer II+, Schiit Lyr, AKG K701, Beyer DT990/600 (if I haven't sold it). I'll have my laptop with a small flac collection as the source. It does have an optical drive for CDs though. I'll also have my portable set up; an iPod Touch 4th gen, iBasso D-Zero, and Senn HD251-II.

I hope some of these tables will hold more than 100 lbs.  My two amp chassis combined weigh that much, not to mention all the other gear I will be bringing.  I'd say a total of 250 lbs. at least.

Should be fine unless you guys stack everything right in the center of the table tongue.gif

Still don't want to take any chances.  I might just end up bringing the entire audio rack and putting the cables out on display on the table.  Not sure yet.
