I was wondering if there was one or two specific headphone that enough attendees would want to audition for me to try see if I could find a pair for the group to audition?  We have a couple of great friends that might be willing to send a pair for the group to audition.  No guarantees but I will do the best I can.

post #10 of 162

A Fostex TH900 would be cool.

post #11 of 162
Yeah I'd enjoy hearing those, and the Shure 1840.
post #12 of 162

If you want hear some thing that I might have please ask, I will arrange bringing it with me.

Will see you at the meet.

I was told that Billy might bring 4 Hooters girls to make the show more interesting. Is this true or just a roomer that I am starting?

I had not heard that but the more the merrier as they always say.

Sign me up!

 

I lack means at the moment to transport anything large or delicate, but I can bring my portable stuff (check profile) if anyone's interested in demoing that.  I've been thinking of selling the Hifiman stuff and would be willing to do so pretty cheap in person.
