Casual Tokyo get together. - Page 2

post #16 of 43
Potentially good news!

1. I may have found another place to host the mini meet on 23 June: my appartment complex rents a pretty large room by the hour (kita-ku, 10 minutes walk from oji-kamiya station on nambiku sen line.
2. The rental fee is really low, like 1000 jpy/ hour (no drinks, food though, just a meeting room).
3. If we hold it there, I can attend (will have my 2 daughters with me though).

I'll be checking with the appartment office if you guys are interested, let me know.

Thanks all for a perfect day.

 

There are many items I would love to have a longer listen to, ...next time.

I need to develop a better listening ear and get more systematic in my `testing`.

 

Not sure  what my favorites were just yet.

 

And thank you again everyone for bringing all that wonderful gear for us to try.

post #26 of 43

As always, more than the gear, it was the people that was great !

 

AnakChan, it's a pair of ACS T1 Live with a Teclast T51 wink_face.gif

 

Also note to self, cut my hair before coming next time tongue_smile.gif

I've updated the spreadsheet now and removed late May/early June. I've also further populated the Fujiya July 7th Portable Festival and I guess we can meet there instead.

 

Please feel free to populate your August dates or make any corrections to your existing entries.

 

@Currawong: it looks like we're currently carrying on this same thread which may inevitably end up permanent. You're ok with that? If so, maybe the thread subject should be changed?

post #29 of 43

Kicking this thread up again for another meet in August. Anyone up for it, please update your availability in August. Googledocs in 1st post.

post #30 of 43

Can't make it until the end of August, but don't let me stop you guys from a meetup.
