Also anyone have a spare 3.5 to 3.5 cable, if yes, I would like to buy it of you. Been through 3 cables alreadyrolleyes.gif (need it for the arrow amp). Otherwise anyone know where I can buy such a cable, somewhat affordable, which lasts longer then a week and ships reasonably fast to the Netherlands?

Also I don't mind paying, but for what exactly? I thought the room was offered free of charge?

 

Cheers.

 

The venued is owned by my family. It's a professional art exhibit area with a lot of facilities. Normally they charge a significant amount of money. Because they are sponsoring the event we only need to pay 5 bucks each for catering (unlimited softdrinks, snacks) and use of electricity. It's a symbolic amount. Normally it would've been much more expensive. Furthermore, the small entrance fee is also another stimulant for people to commit to their participation. Soundconsult is coming with a lot of demogear, as is Headsound. They wouldn't bother if only 5 people show up. :) Well, maybe they still would, but it's much nicer if we have at least 20 people participating. Looks better on the photos too. ;)

Bought myself a 3ft Monster iCable® 800 for 14,95 ..but I have no idea why blink.gif. I need the reaally short ones that I can put between the Clip+ and the Fiio E6, no idea where I'm gonna get those. And if I would use it between the receiver and laptop, it's too short. So, no idea what I would use this one for. Is this a cable you'd consider buying?

I personally wouldn't mind if it was 10 euro, either.

While nothing fancy, the little cable that comes with the E6 is pretty decent. I was going to make a custom cable, but when using the stock E6 cable, I decided not to bother until the little stock cable broke...

 

Otherwise the Fiio L-series cables are quite nice for the money. Qables.com sells a cheap mini to mini too, but at 8" I think it's a bit too long. You could always go with a custom, there are some very good cable makers on head-fi. They'll probably end up costing more than your Clip+ & E6 together though...

I'll probably come by car after all.

My (awesome) parents decided it would be a good idea to go on a weekend trip to Limburg somewhere around the 18th. biggrin.gif

I could bring some power cables if I have some spare room or hands to carry it.

 

Does anyone know a good way to equalize sound btw? I'm using foobar and FiiO E10.

I begin:
Hifimanrookie: 2 in wall, 2 not

Well, that's why I didn't offer the carpool thing, because I live a 30 minute drive away from Heerlen :P

 

Welcome in Limburg, all!

 

Edit: 0 wallplugs needed; I'll hijack someone's USB port if my Clip+ needs power!

I dont think powercables will be the problem as most probably have aftermarket good quality powercables for their amps/sources..the challenge will be i think the amount of in-wall connections. But then again..some amps/sources are not very choosy from where and how they get their power from..but tube amps are! Especially a powerful one like mine who needs 2 seperate powercords to be driven.
So maybe i am just a bit overreacting..tongue.gif
post #404 of 618

Well I meant some extension cord thingys where you can plug multiple plugs in one socket. :P

 

 

 

 

 

Let's continue like this:

 

Hifimanrookie: 2 in wall, 2 not

Holy Cheese: 1 not
