Thanks for the details. You can tell them I for one will not be buying anything on the day etysmile.gif My 4.ai+ are due in a few weeks, which will distract me for a bit

I'm coming from London and departing from Liverpool Street. A one-way ticket tomorrow is £46. On 6 Feb am being quoted £8-£20 each way depending on time. Underground is handled by the Oyster and capped at all day travelcard rate anyway. If you are outside the M25 do you need to go into London or is there no train route that bypasses?

Ahaha, the demos will be very nice to check out though! Wanted to hear UM and 1964 stuff for a while and some of the Shure range even! Also i have billions of Jaben Foam tips for everyone to try out my earphones! Oh and welcome to the 4.Ai club ;)

I'd like to come as it's just down the road for me. A weekend would be much easier but I might be able to stop by after work.

Where abouts do you live? And yes it'd be great to see you, would live to compare DX100 with my MA9 and have a play around with the violetric. What time do you finish work!

Just too far and too short notice for me sadly. I'm clear across the country in Liverpool, not sure if the university would allow me a day off for a head-fi meet.

Okay mate, no big deal!

I'm in Taunton nowhere near London, but there is a direct train route to Paddington so I can be in London in under two hours on a good day.  On a map Colchester is close to London so I was thinking maybe an hour extra, I had not considered being on the tube with a suitcase full of audio gear at pretty much rush hour as well... Not living in a city it's hard to get out of my small town one train station mindset redface.gif

I'm in Ipswich. Depends a bit on family commitments too, but in theory I finish work by 5.30pm.

 

Certainly would be no problem to bring the v200, DX100 and HD800. I'd probably prefer to leave the tube amp at home unless there's a lot of interest. Mind you, there should be, it's better than the v200 IMO wink.gif

 

Keep us posted on the interest you have. If there's enough folk able to attend to make it worth going ahead I'd like to come if I can. I'd certainly like to have the chance to try the T series Beyers against my HD800 if that were an option.

Oh I swim in Ipswich every day!

That'd be great if you could and that gear would be great but if the tub is as good as you say, I would like to test it with my HE-500 wink.gif

The whole t series will be there apart from the T90 which they will try and get in time.

However they are coming at 11 an said they would be oreoated to stay a while (to 8ish) but only really if there's enough people.
By that I mean 7-10, that'd be ideal!

Had no idea you were a fellow Essex boy Swimsonny. How funny. Will see if I can book it off - those demos sound great.

So what is happening with this?

post #28 of 33

I went to the Cambridgeshire head-fi meeting last year with two friends and took my BHSE / SR-009's, but I only took my iPod to use as source. While I enjoyed that meeting, I'd prefer the next one I go to, to be somewhere closer to home. Because of that my friend headfier IanG suggested I got in touch with someone that has an audio shop in Selby, Yorkshire, to find out whether he could get an head-fi meeting going in Yorkshire. Paul the owner of that shop said he's only just started with his shop, but when it gets more established he might be able to get a meeting sorted out.

 

Me and Ian are going through to Paul's place but that won't be until sometime in June.  I did suggest I'd take my headphone system along for him to have a listen.

 

Although this meeting in Yorkshire if successful might be sometime away, if or when it does happen, the equipment I'll be taking will be  SR-009 / BHSE  or  Senn HD600 / Headamp GS-X  or   SR-009 / Aristaeus,  but the source won't be my iPod, it will probably be my Esoteric K-01. Fingers crossed a meeting can be sorted out in Yorkshire because the K-01 IMO  improves any headphone.

 

Until I receive the GS-X, I'm listening to my HD600's with my Pico Slim, the source being my K-01, and while that combo isn't as good as the SR-009 / BHSE / K-01, it's still very good.

The headphone company can't make it and I don't think turn out is gonna be great so I think I will have Beyer to myself! I will do something one a weekend with down months prep so it can be done properly!

I'd love a Yorkshire meet. I'm not far from Selby(when not at uni) since I'm just outside York. I don't have a car though, so anything I can contribute would have to fit in a smallish suitcase and not break on the train.
