1-2 weeks, then mail them to someone else for a review. It doesn't have to be a 10 page one with 100s of pictures. Just compare how they sound to your other gear, with your different sources/amps, and on some types of music.

Man, that was the worst! Where's the mute button?!

fine, fine, I'll keep it down and to PM. Sorry. It's very difficult to objectively speculate and point out options about things without appearing to be in bad faith and not being too cynical [and letting your own philosophies bias you]. [r click on name, block member biggrin.gif, if you insist ] [and I should really stay away from political discussions as an organizer. That's the part I really am sorry for as it potentially discourages attendees and businesses and reflects badly on the meet to some ]

We currently have half the number of attendee we had last year, hopefully number will pick up~ if there is anyone you know that would be interested in coming, can you let them know about this meet please?

Hi there. I would like to come. I have an Audinst mux-1 amp/dac and a he-400.

You think doubling the price and passing it on to consumers because your initial product wasn't great is a good call - great.
 

 

No I trusted Lee, Shane. And bought the $800 1st version pair (mind you that 800 was initially for copper cable and silver was 100 on top of that). GG actually got me second guessing my decision since he didn't seem completely impressed. Turns out a new pair was made based on impressions just like that. This I saw as a good thing as I was already enjoying my pair. Thought there seems to be some great customer relations/feedback work going on here...That is why I am now excited to see what Tralucent brings next to the table. I still have the old versions.

 

I wasn't trying to convince you of anything nor was I trying to invalidate any of your points. Price jump is questionable and I'm not defending Tralucent but my point in the previous post was actually in fact - why not call out the numerous "expensive" DACs, flagship phones coming to the meet and perhaps claim their predecessors or siblings could do the same job for much less? It is understandable but seemed unnecessary to mention on a meet thread. 

 

Sorry folks for derailing the thread but something piqued my curiosity. PM me.

Not bad coz a few of my friends in Brisbane thought Townsville was where the country music festival was down South!! Only know Cairns or Mackay up North lol. 
 
Back on topic - these events seem nice and well planned out. Are they based on donations/cover charges?

Can con run on cover charge. Regarding smooth operation of the meet, there were lots of hiccups in planning and running the meet. The meet is still in developing stage ad there are still much improvements to be made.

excellent. I'll check on Yamaha now. edit: unfortunately they're unable to attend due to late notice, but said they'll try to make it to the next one.

Attendance fees. Members - low single 15-30, vendors - 2x that depending on the year/# of people to spread the venue costs.
