Charlotte Area Meet January 20th, 2013 - Page 18

post #256 of 285
Thread Starter 

The gear list has been updated with all the new stuff people are bringing.  Grevlin, no one seems to own Beyers. We did have a pair of 990s coming but the owner had to back out of the meet.

I live kind of near the Charlotte area (west of the triad), but unfortunately would not be able to attend. Looking forward to the post-meet impressions!

 

Edit: Grevlin, I have a pair of DT770 80 Ohm (and JMoney leather pads somewhere..) that I would be willing to lend if you or anyone else would want to try. However, I think the DT880 and DT990 are a notch better and the DT770 might not accurately represent what those two headphones could produce. I could be wrong though. However, as I would be unable to attend, someone nearby would have to pick them up for me and bring them over, hopefully a reputable member as these are my only and favorite closed headphone!

Its all good - I'm sure I'll be smacked speechless with all the gear that does show up.

I planned on bringing mine as well.  Always great to have multiple perspectives of shots and some that others may have missed.

Moms, Dads, girlfriends, boyfriends, Partners, Spouses....etc. are all welcome. This is a good thing, if by attending a meet with you they better understand your mania/hobby, then the time you spend huge dollars because of Head-Fi it will be more acceptable. And who knows, we may gain a few converts.

 

As of this morning we have 16 head-fiers and approximately 6 guests attending. I've posted the meet on Steve Hoffman and Audiocircle which could get some drop-ins, who knows. All-in-all a very good crowed.

 

Cameras...............bring them. Point-&-shoot, phone, DSLR it doesn't matter, lets get lots of pics to post, gear, people....etc. I've reserved a thread on the Impressions forum so we can all post there.  http://www.head-fi.org/t/643439/denver-nc-meet-impressions-january-20-2013-aka-charlotte-area-meet When copying the link to post here I noticed there are 105 views and the thread is empty. I think there's interest in our meet. Lets document it well.

 

Today I need to get ready, I'll select a bunch of CDs, pack up my gear, print badges and visit the Club to make certain our room is setup correctly. We have access to the room starting at 9am. There was a small charge for the room, contributions to defray the cost will be gladly accepted. After the room is set up I'll snap a few pics and post them later today.

 

I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones........................Alex

Very excited about tomorrow, can't wait to see everybody. Unfortunately I do have some bad news, the gungnir dac continues to be on back order, so the mjolnir/gungnir combo won't be in on time for the meet. I emailed the founder Jason and the shipping manager Alex, with no luck. sorry guys, but the lcd3,o2,and my newly acquired Sony xba 4ip iems will be there

I don't see the problem in that. My wife attended last year's meet and it's gotten her more interested in improving her desktop system, too... She has other commitments and won't be attending this time, though.

 

If you're bringing along non-audiophiles I recommend making sure they bring along a good book or somesuch. It's not really fair to lock 'em in a room with a bunch of people far more obsessed with something than they are without letting them take a break from it.

 

Anyway -- 

 

Thanks for all your hard work, Alex. Set up a tip jar for sure!

 

If anybody reading this is in the Raleigh/(Cary)/Durham/Chapel Hill triangle and wants to carpool, PM me. I'll have room in the car for one or two passengers and their gear.

Aww, that is disappointing, oh well, can't really do anything about it I guess. Will still be good to see you there and try the LCD-3s!

I'll of course be taking pictures again (D300 if anyone cares).

Violectric V200 will now be available for sale at the meet.

No pics of the meeting room today. The entire dinning room is set up for a wedding reception. There's a dance floor where our room will be. Someone asked about table clothes, yes and they'll be black.
