Edmonton Meet? - Page 4

post #46 of 62
Swich401 thanks for organizing this. Perhaps we can get a few more interested. I'm good for the 26th.

Hey Switch401, just checking, we're you able to get a space at the Uni?

Hiya, so I called around the university and it looks like they want to charge upwards of $100 to book a classroom for a couple hours...

Instead, I've booked the group room in my previous picture (booking that one is free) from 4-6pm for this Saturday. I'll post another update soon on how to get to that room, it's relatively simple.

 

Edit: Just got confirmation that some people that I know should be able to make it (they're not on Head-Fi); they're bringing some gear as well which I'll post up in a bit (e.g. Focal Spirit Pro's, a Furman amp, etc.)

I know this is an old dead thread, but how did the first meet go? Anyone planning another in Edmonton anytime soon? I can bring a few cans over if we do! 

 

I have:

 

Hifiman HE 400

Hifiman HE 400i

AKG K7XX

Sennheiser HD800

Sony MDR 1000X

 

I also have JDS Labs O2 Amp and Fiio E17K Amp/DAC (so far!)

 

Cheers fellow Edmontonians!

I'd be up for another Edmonton meet! Last time we had just 3 people there, but it was actually really great as a small group - more time to do comparisons and to relax and enjoy the smaller amount of gear that we had there.

 

How about sometime in June for the next Edmonton mini-meet? June 10th?

 

I'll bring:

 

- Sennheiser HD-650's (modded)

- Highly upgraded Bottlehead Crack amplifier

- Bottlehead Mainline amplifier

- Schiit Yggdrasil DAC

- Objective2 amp

- RaspberryPi3 / 502DAC as source

That sounds awesome! I'm very new to the audiophile community and haven't really met anyone locally to chat about my qualms and questions with!

I'd love to attend a meet-up here in Edmonton. Let me know what I can do to help make this happen.

 

I have a few headphones I can bring:

 

- Focal Utopia

- HifiMan HE-1000 V2

- Audeze LCD3 (pre-fazor)

 

For amplification I can bring a modified MicroZOTL2 running on a pretty great linear PSU.

 

Source material will be a CAPS V4 Pipeline music server upsampling everything to DSD512 to a T+A DAC 8 DSD.

Thread bump. Has Everyone lost interest in an Edmonton meet-up this spring?

I'm still interested. Dave, how does June work for you (e.g. June 10th)?
post #57 of 62

To be honest, any time works for me. I'm always around :)

 

If we can set a firm date, I can try and round up some participants so we can try for a half decent turnout.

How about we say Sunday, June 4th from noon-4pm. I'll look into room bookings at the U of A. We can also see if there is another spot we could use that has tables and chairs somewhere in the city.

Best,
Mischa

Sounds good!

Should we set up a main thread about it where people can visit and express interest in attending?
