The reason? A production engineering problem that demands all-hands input (me, Mike and Dave) now, if we want to make our commitments. It just showed this afternoon, and we are all still at the office. So, unless there is a minor miracle before the sun rises, I don't think we'll be in shape to pack up gear, headphones, computers, banners, etc and drive up.
 
Please accept our regrets and deepest apologies. 
 
All the best,
Jason


That's real bad news, first Eddie Current and now Schiit is out. (But sorry about the production glitch.) I was thinking of testing and maybe buying a new amp. You guys have the most appealing array of amp/dac gear I've seen.

As I recall from past meets, there were a lot of inadvertent cute matching outfits. Jeans and T-shirts.

Don't worry. Purrin is bringing a whole pile of Schiit from Jason on his way to the meet. I expect Eddie Current will be amply represented from member rigs.

Did something happen to Mr. Eddie Current which I am not aware of? What is the source of such scandalous rumors?

Front entrance

Left

Upstairs

Rooms: Salon 1-5

 

 

REMINDER:

 

I know it's already been mentioned, but a lot the higher end stuff tends to be CD-player based. I burned two of my own CDs for evaluation purposes. Burning a CD with your own music is a good idea. Unless you want to listen to Patricia Barber, Ravi Shankar's daughter, or that Jazz chick who's married to Elvis Costello (sorry, I can't remember their names) over and over and over and over again.

 

SPECIAL THANKS:

 

To all those who have donated (and all of them have asked to be anonymous.) This kind of generosity makes me happy and less cynical about the fate of human beings.

 

CEETEE and Questhate, who picked up the ball when I got recalled at the last minute for a special assignment at work and then got very sick.

Hey, are most people going to actually arrive at 8? I don't want to be first, but if people are going to be there at 8 I will be too!

Offiicial T-shirt logo as well?  This should be a good fest indeed.  Thanks for the fast response!

Just discovered this event. Looks like I'll have to wait till next year. Ironically, I know the Sofitel well as I work in one of those glass towers across the lagoon. Looking forward to some great pictures. happy_face1.gif

It's been some time since I last burned a CD. What format do you actually burn it in? Drop files onto it or actually have to make it playable (not even sure how that works anymore haha)?

 

Sooooooo looking forward to the SR-009.... and there are multiple of them... which makes it even more ridiculous

post #432 of 477

I am shooting to get there around 8am, but a lot will depend on how quickly I wake up and what pace my morning run is at.  90% certain I will be their by 8:30.

If you're not sure just use iTunes and make sure its set to "Audio CD".

 

If you have it set up as a data disc many of the transports won't be able to play it.
