wouldn't it be far cheaper (and convenient once in central london) to take the train?

Yea, definitely. I'm actually really looking forward to this meet - I've delayed buying a few headphones and getting rid of some equipment for that to be done on the day. So much better!!

 

I'm not sure if I saw your response GSARider - will the ie800 be selling at the meet. I know it'll be available for a demo, but hopefully it isn't the same case here as it was in the bristol hifi show where they've got no stock to sell.

Take the train, but book in advance. 1 month should do it. I reckon you could get decent discounts from thetrainline.com on return tickets from leeds to london. Fair enough it might be on the slower trains, but it'll still be faster than driving here. If your lucky you might get a great ticket for an intercity train to london, taking around 2 and a half hours. Smooth ride as well with them east midlands trains!

 

The place is pretty near london st pancras/kings cross so there's not much travelling to do apart from that.

I will check on the IE800 and as custom cable will be offering 10% off all Sennheiser products, would you like me to order a pair for you or are you happy to take your chances with it? Pm me and let me know.

Having thought about it, anyone wanting to order a pair of Sennheiser cans with a 10% discount can do so before the meet, pay Custom Cable and collect I think. I can check with them, that this is okay and get it organised.

im pretty sure only senn are allowed to sell headphones at the meet so audeze are likely to be out, but i agree, UK based amp companies would be a great addition, perhaps graham slee could make a showing?

Unfortunately no, although we do have a couple of companies coming along, plus there's a whole host of amps, etc being brought along by members.

When i looked at the train prices on Saturday it was £140 approx return for an arrival time of about 10am. I just checked again, and the prices have dropped to about £60 return. As I'm intending to bring my son, the original cost at the time of my first post of £240 combined was prohibitive. Hence coming by car and parking at Brent Cross. In fact it was cheaper to come down on the Friday and stay over at Cricklewood Travel Lodge. However as the prices seem to be dropping, I'll keep an eye on them. I'd even considered Megabus, but its 4 hours each way, and I think I'd lose my sanity.  So yes, I had considered the train.
