For the people who are bringing amp and dac do they leave their equipments by itself if the user is going to audition gears in other area?

Usually, yes.

 

One year (about 2 years ago) we had a guy who insisted on putting the headphones on your head for you.  Definitely not worth bringing gear if you're that paranoid*.  (You in general.)  

 

*Unless you're bringing HE-90s.  I will let you put them on my head for me.

Whoever wishes to place HE-90's on my head is also welcomed and encouraged to do so.....

My Focal Spirit Ones are one of those small & tight full-sized headphones (full-sized on hobbits maybe), and plastic makes a scary crack if one opens them too wide to put them on.  I can relate to where the person must have been coming from.  I kinda expect those headphones are going back home with me in two pieces from the meet actually.  But no, I won't be placing them on people's heads in risk of it.  :p

Just explain it to people and show them. People were really nice at the last meet and I don;t see any reason they wouldn't take a little care if you mentioned something.

Question for you guys...I've heard of meets where UE has had someone there doing impressions...will they be doing that at the meet?

I haven't been to a meet, myself, but if I'm not mistaken I saw a picture from a prior meet of Dr. Julie Glick taking impressions. She's out of Manhattan (36A 36th Street). She took my impressions and did a great job.

Back to your question, though...don't know whether anyone will be there in April.

Same. He may bestow it on my head

Pretty sure Dale of Aurisonics knows how to do impressions and if he isn't bringing someone with him would probably happily do the impressions himself if you order a set of his CIEM's that day. I think it's a bit early to be talking about this stuff though. We have two companies that have strong ties to Custom IEM's coming, I'm sure something will be happening to help people get impressions made when purchasing CIEM's from at least one of them.

Last meet up UE had an audiologist come to take impressions. Don't remember her name but pretty sure it's the same person you're talking about. When it's a month or two away from the meet up I'm sure we'll know more.

Just try to get some idea so I don't act little strange in the meeting.

 

I could bring some gears to the meeting, if someone could give me a lift.

 

Plan to bring the following equipments:

Eddie Current Super 7 amplifier (anyone is welcoming to bring some tubes to test if they want)
PS Audio Nuwave DAC (incoming)
Sennheiser HD650 w/aftermarket cables (balanced 4pins XLR) in case for if anyone want to test that out.

 

However, I do want to point out that I don't have a laptop.  If someone is generous enough to bring along a laptop or cd player that will be ideal.

 

If anyone want me to bring the HRT Music Streamer II+ dac along I could do that as well only if there is interest.
