Whoa Erik! Is this a not-so-subtle way of saying that you are not hosting the Fall meet in White Plains this year? What sort of horrible trend have I started? confused_face.gif

 

If the NJ group doesn't want to host it, I can offer to host the Fall meet at the Adria in Queens. I would need to know to lock in the date in before the first sub-32° day.

That's exactly the problem. If you looking for tighter punchier bass try T70

Since i came back home from meet searching for a great deal on T70p since on Amazon and around they are way more than $400 while T70 cost a litle less than $400

It will be great. I missed last fall NYC meet cause wasn't monitoring this section of forum frequently enough but hope i wouldn't be forced to skip next one cause it hosted somewhere where you can reach by car only

Hey guys,   

Meant to write sooner.  First, thanks to the whole NY crew (especially to Tom and others who helped put this together) for making my first meet up a really cool experience.  Made me wonder why I haven’t done this sooner, and I look forward to the next one.  

At the risk of sounding a bit corny, you guys really have something special going on in this community, and I’m glad to slowly become a part of it.  It was a pleasure speaking with virtually every person I met on Saturday.  The venders I came across in my time there couldn’t have been more friendly or engaging (especially Dan, Pete and Jack).  And when I mentioned to Tom (Bozebuttons) that I might have a repair job for my portable FA Mystify amp, he made a B-line out the door to grab Steve (SiBurning) and Bob, who literally stopped their pipe smoking mid-inhale and headed in to take a look (thanks so much again for your time, guys)!   

My dad (unfamiliar with head-fi) happened to be passing through on his way out east and stopped by for an hour or so.  Needless to say, he was blown away, and mirrored the same sentiments as above.

I'll let the more experienced folks give any further impressions on all of the gear we saw.  Jeez...I almost felt like it was a bit of a privilege to even wear the Stax phones and look at Jack's WA234’s, let alone listen to them.  Haha!   But an interesting piece of gear for me was the new T90 from the Beyer table for the price of ~$675 (?).  The room noise cooperated – at least for a couple of tracks – and I was left with a solid first impression.  I look forward to hearing them again under quieter circumstances, but pending that, I think I would def. consider them in the running for my next jump up in an open can (from the Q701’s).  Very curious to hear others’ thoughts, good or bad.  Anyone else get to spend a few minutes with them?

Unfortunately, that repair job is extremely difficult because the traces on the circuit board were lifted. If anyone's interested in reading about serious PCB repair, check out this guidebook:

Specifically, this repair would require removing some coatings (section 2) and possibly some conductor repair (section 4), maybe even an inner layer (4.2.6). Fancy stuff.

Ok, so the picture you posted of Steve with his portable rig was taken at my first head-fi meet. 

Woot.
