Excellent! I guess it's not too soon to start an equipment list as it may influence the space as well. I've started a list. 

post #4 of 266

as I have very nearly literally just started into the hobby, I have to offer but a single pair of dt 770 pro 80 ohm cans. 

 

I don't suppose anyone needs a listen on a sansa clip+ 2gb happy_face1.gif

Actually, I've been interested in how those Sansas compare to ipods.

post #6 of 266

I'm in. Either date works for me.

post #7 of 266
Tentative "yup" from over here. I'll keep an eye on things.
post #8 of 266

well, I'll bring to the clip and the 770s so long as I can make it.  That's a bit far for me to know for sure due to where I work, but right now either date works for me.

I've never actually had the opportunity to hear the DT770/880/990. Bring them!

- Grado 225i (wood cups)
- Schiit Modi/Magni
- Little Dot I+

Nice! This is picking up already!

 

Please correct me if I add any incorrect information to the main post. I'm such a noob, I had to look up what a lot of this stuff was already. confused.gif

post #13 of 266

I don't know if it would be helpful, but I have a little laptop I can bring along.  Dual boots Win7 and Arch linux.  It's not super fast, but we're not going to run Crysis on it :)

 

I don't have any kind of external DAC/AMP for it, so there's that caveat.  If interested I'd be glad to load any software (that isn't $$$) on it to try out or use at the meet.

@TheNewCanMan, absolutely. Won't hurt to have more sources.

So, as far as spaces, the two cheapest options I've found based on our current size would be either a board room at the Hampton Inn. It has one large table and eight executive-style chairs. It's in the Hanes Mall shopping area off I-40 which has a lot of restaurants, of course (Jason's Deli, Which Wich, Chipotle, Moe's, KFC, McDonald's, etc.). It would cost $120 of which I could probably afford $40 which means everybody else would have to chip in to cover the rest or either try to convince a local audio shop to turn the meet into a sales meeting (gross) so they would pay for it. They'll give us some water and coffee (woopty doo). It's booked on the 13th but open on the 20th.

 

 

Another option would be the local tea shop called Angelina's (http://www.angelinasteas.com/). It would be free but less private, if that matters, and the chairs aren't as plush. I've never really seen it very busy in there, though. Bringing outside food in would be fine but the only concern the owner has is that no one bring in outside drinks -- mainly caffeinated drinks. He said he would be fine with us moving the little glass tables he has to the side and bringing in a large folding table. There's a really great Indian restaurant called Nawab (http://www.nawabindiancuisine.com/), Midtown Cafe (http://www.midtowncafews.com/food_lunch.html), and another diner-style restaurant called Mayberry in that same shopping center. There's also a Whole Foods, Firehouse subs, Qdoba, Panera, and a McDonald's nearby. He's got a great selection of tea and some snacks.

 

What do you guys think?
