You do realize that the difference in distance between the northern parts of the Netherlands and Heerlen or between the northern parts of the Netherlands and Essen is either too small to mention, or dramatically in favor of Essen? 

 

Some fun facts:

 

Groningen - Heerlen 239

Groningen - Essen 243
Difference: 4km in favor of Heerlen

 

Leeuwarden - Heerlen 326

Leeuwarden - Essen 260
Difference: 66km in favor of Essen

 

Den Helder - Heerlen 295

Den Helder - Essen 296
Difference: 1km in favor of Heerlen

 

Valom - Heerlen 372

Valom - Essen 273
Difference: 99km in favor of Essen

(For those who don't know, Valom is the most northern town in the Netherlands, not counting the islands)

 

 

Uhm wait a minute... I was supposed to motivate Erik to organize a meeting.... I'm not really helping, am I? 

Please organise a meeting Erik, I'm even willing to help (I can carry 1 or 2 cans of tomato soup for you if you want).

Coop, you are smarter than a tux. ;) And no, this isn't motivational at all. :D

All in all..for people coming from western netherlands (amsterdam etc) its always better to stay inlands then to go to belgium or germany with their beloved stuff.
And now i think of it..i need an audiocase to transport my new amp (with seperated powersupply) in..
Any tips?

Pelican cases, but they are friggin expensive. 

Vanguard makes cases that are a (little) more affordable, but they have fewer models.

You could of course head over to casebuilder.com and have a custom case made for your gear (only costs like €400, but you'll have a perfect fitting case).

That's a "I'd love to hang out but my gf is about to give birth to the spawn of satan this week so I can't have a social life until the kid is 18." ;)

Lol, congrats dude, and welcome to the club...

 

Kids are no reason to not have a social life. My social life hasn't changed all that much since I became a dad (ok, so my social life was pretty pathetic even before I became a dad).

 

But here's some free parenting advice:

- Start to 'condition' your kid to share your hobbies a.s.a.p. My son is 3 years old and already has his own set of (volume limited) headphones. It is awesome to just kick back and relax listening to your music, while your kid is sitting next to you listening to K3s' 'De Politie' on repeat over and over again on his own headphones.

- Have some 'me' time now and then, it will keep you (sort of) sane. Make sure your better half does so as well. Do try to coordinate your 'me' time a little between the 2 of you, especially in the 1st year kids do not respond very well to neglect.

- Have some 'we' time now and then, A kid means that the 2 of you are (in some way or another) condemned to eachother. 'we' time will make sure that you can either keep the love alive a little or at least have an opportunity to fight without the kid having to witness it. So drop the kid off at the grandparents now and then (although it can be tempting to hire a local junk for a babysitter as they work cheap, but this is usually frowned upon by the community) and go do something fun with just the 2 of you.

I'd really like to attend another meet. I haven't heard any of the Hifiman or Audeze sets at all and I'd like to try them on.

 

I also have a Stax SR-007 Mk1 on the way, which I'd like to bring and try on a KGSS/HV, BH(SE) or something else like that. Or to let people listen to it. Either way, I'd love to come!

We already have 5 interested already:-)

If its in Heelen, I would also be interested to join the meet.
