September 16th Vancouver Head-Fi MEET!

post #1 of 408
Thread Starter 

OK nice and simple. Local Head-Fi meet. Sunday, September 16th @12:00-5:00 PM (obviously). At Coal Harbour Community Center. Most likely would be Sponsors. Bring your gear. Share your gear. Talk and have fun! This will be (hoping!) a large local meet right here in Vancity! Like I said above, Sponsors with their products are VERY likely this meet! Hoping for this to be a HUGE success and either Travis (http://headphonebar.com/) and/or I will be posting details as we approach the desired date. Bring your friends and let's make this a great meet! I unfortunately missed the last meet during January http://www.head-fi.org/t/584371/vancouver-head-fi-meet-january-14-2012 and I'm hoping members who attended that event can join us in this event. Cheers!

Come to my table for name tags! Also, I'll have Alcohol wipes handy at the meet.

Personally, I will be providing the group with my Samsung Ultrabook, Calyx Coffee DAC, Marantz CD5003 CD player (bring your CDs if you wanna use your own music!), Hifiman EF5 with stock tubes, Vintage AKG K141, Hifiman HE400 version 2, Grado SR225i with tape mod, Etymotic ER-4S, Audeo PFE232, Hifiman HM-602 player.. I think it will be pretty pointless to bring my Custom IEM, but i'll bring it anyway to discuss with others about re-shelling, customs, and etc.

khoi14021993 is bring his Audio Technica W3000ANV

DaBomb77766 MIGHT attend. If he does, he is bringing his Vmoda M-80, Redgiant A03, GR07 which I believe is in the middle of a re-cable. He won't be bringing his modded T50RP or HD595.

I'd certainly make an effort to make my way to one (since I'm very interested in listening to an LCD-2 prior to taking the plunge). Might have a toy or three of my own to bring along.

Anyone else? Sorry to hear that rangerid. Any ideas as in when and where? (Somewhere downtown? Sometime July?
post #7 of 408

I'd most likely come to this.

post #8 of 408

I'm interested. The January meet looked pretty sweet, lots of nice gear there!  I don't have much to offer, just some HD25 and Shure 440 cans, C421-2227 and D-Zero amps, and a couple of iPods (one Classic and one Touch 4G).

 

Who organized the January one?  Can we get them involved with this one too?  :)

post #9 of 408

Also would be worth someone (no I'm not volunteering) contacting Element Acoustics to see if they could come again?  Or maybe Headphone Bar?

Most likely mid-July?? I'm sure the date can be flexable to meet most of the peoples needs.

I'll be out of town on vacation from July 10 - 25. Oh well, I'll keep on the look out for future meets up there.

Everything is just an estimation atm. Good news. I talked to Travis from Headphonebar and he agreed to quite literally organize the whole event. He said something about bringing Reps from Companies. This is turning out to be a big meet. Spread the word!
post #15 of 408

Quite interested, but I'll only be around until the start of July. I'll wait on the official word of the meet date.
