Can con 3 (Sydney,Australia meet) - Jan 12th 2013 - 9:30am-6:30pm, Epping.

post #1 of 237
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

Paul asked me to co-organize a new meet for 2013. (yes we're having it early in the year. It's to do with venue bookings)

The previous meets are under:
2012 http://www.head-fi.org/t/608735/can-con-2-sydney-2012-meet-aug-18th-3-30-to-8-30pm-near-epping-station
2011 http://www.head-fi.org/t/549400/can-con-sydney-meet-10-07-unique-melody-i-enjoy-com-au-jaben-australia-twisted-cables-krispy-kables-to-join-us-major-prize-giveaway-by-jaben-aus /

He'll be away in December and I'll be busy falling apart as usual, but hey, why not.



A meet is a nice chance for people to exchange impressions, sample new and old gear and maybe buy or sell gear.

Here are the meet details so far:

a) The confirmed/time is Jan 12 9:30-6:30pm. (we don't get to chose, they're more as Paul can agree with the venue custodians biggrin.gif )

b) The venue is near Epping station, details available upon registration (a few days before the meet). <-- and yes, I see the obvious irony.

c) Same rules as last year I presume (subj to change biggrin.gif ?)

d) I assume the conditions will be the same as last time - (see the start of the post for the 2011 meet link) - incl similar fees for vendors ($20) and regular attendees ($10-15).

e) post the gear you might bring (IEMs, full size cans, amps, dacs, electrostatics, etc).

f) Depending on how you get to the place (not sure how applicable this is before we determine the venue, but some people brought large amps, so it still is), and how much you want to help us have a larger meet with more gear, you may volunteer yourself for car pooling (state the area you're in)


g) The format will probably be similar to the one last year. (subject to change):

The Set up.
Registration.
Vendor presentation ( introduction (who they are, what goods or services they are involved with, feature product introduction/demonstration). ( I particularly loved Uniques Melody's table drape with their name and logo and it would be good and very professional if the vendors could organise one themselves).
Free time.
Draw. (prize if any available).
Free time.
Pack up.
Clean.



The preliminary rules are:


1. I'll contact the pre-registered attendees to get the Name, Address, Email, Contact number on Tue before the Meet, and when provided will respond with the venue details.

2. At the meet, you would be required to provide a valid photo id when registering at the registration table. Your valid photo id will be cross checked with the details provided prior to the meet. (the info aside from your name and forum id will be burnt within a few days of the meet). For vendors - you can give them your details if you wish separately?

3. You should bring an extension cord or power board if you can (along with other cables necessary for your setup)

4. Please be careful and respect other member`s properties, ask before you pull a phone out of a plug – some amps if they are not powered down before inserting or pulling out a jack have the potential to blow. Again be very careful.

5. Be on the watch out for power cords and headphone cable on the floor and tables, you can easily knock over equipment, or hurt yourself – if this is your first meet be weary the floor will be littered with cable.

6. Please restrict consumption of food or drinks to the designated place ONLY and place all rubbish in the plastic bags provided. PLEASE also wash your hands if it is dirty before touching anything.

7. No wet hair, or put anything in their hair at all (e.g. wax, gel, mousse etc) (Will be refused entry). Strong aftershave or deodorant are also not good. Also, clean in and around your ears. Nobody wants their cans covered with earwax.

8. No need to panic or spoil the mood (it's unlikely I'll run off with your 10kg amp) - but leaving keys, wallets or expensive IEMs unattended might not be a good idea

9. You must wear the name tag at all times.

Yay, I'll be in Sydney by then.

I hope to be able to bring a HE-400 and a NFB12.1, but it all depends on whether or not I get that job I just applied for.

post #13 of 237
I had a great time last time! And subject to holiday plans I'd love to come again:)
post #14 of 237

Subscribed first, gonna update my gear list when we are closer to the date.

post #15 of 237

I'll be there modulo something coming up.

Preliminarily I'll bring my diy bhse, stax o2, and the same diy sabre dac I was using with the diyt2 at the last meet.
