How bout Jude bring over a bunch of those Head-Fi straps and anyone that joins the raffle gets a pair? I'm also up for it if the straps were sold for charity or even funding to run this site.

Dan 

I'm up for a couple of those. Gladly make a donation.

I take it you got your flights sorted out Jude - that's great...smily_headphones1.gif

 

Just had a Graham Slee Bitzie DAC + Lautus USB Cable turn up today for the raffle.

 

Also IFI Audio, who will be attending are donating:
 

iUSB Power – a pure power supply that sits between the Computer > DAC.
 
iDAC – portable, USB DAC that handles 24/192 with a separate headphone amp section
 
iCAN – Class A headphone amplifer with XBass to adjust for different bass response of all headphones and 3D holographic to ‘re-equalise recordings (originally made for speakers)

 

This is in addition to teh other stuff already listed, such as the pair of HD800's, etc.smily_headphones1.gif

Are you guys talking about these silicone bands?

I'm pretty sure I've got a bag of these somewhere, but don't know for sure how many I've got. I'll bring whatever I've got, and then let GSARider decide what to do with them. Sell them for a quid each for charity? Give some or all away for free? He's the organizer, so it'll be up to him.

Yes, flight and lodging are all set up, so I'm good to go!

 

I can't wait! This looks to be shaping up into a very cool event, so thanks, GSARider, for all you're doing.

Thanks Jude, look forward to seeing you there and hopefully we can sell a few bands for the charity too.

Remember chaps, the charity raffle will also be taking place, £10 a ticket and we have around £3,000 of prizes to be won...smily_headphones1.gif

I know I'm being a dunce but is there a list anywhere of confirmed attendees? I'm pretty sure I'm down (+1) but would be great to see my name up in lights (or on a list!), I'd hate to miss this!

Great work GSARider

Sadly not all of us can bring or have the portable player/laptop + dac/amp and have your own music

I know its not the best place for accurate testing. But i`m dying  to try HD800, couple portable players £500+,

BUT if i will have to listen some unfamiliar music to me,  like Beethoven, Vivaldi or Mozart probably i would never know how that headphones are. You know what i mean. 

So i have an idea:

Lets have all of us, lets say three very well known and acceptable songs for every one

So we will avoid asking to hook our stuff  to test your headphones or player. Simply listen others setup with same songs (if we want too).

I just quickly thought what songs could be and well known for every one (it must be ROCK/POP i guess, which i hate):

 

No Doubt - Don't Speak

Portishead - Roads

4 Non Blondes - What's Up

 

I don`t listen them at all, but know them well for some reason. :)

What do you think guys?

Can make separate threat and decide.

 

 

Sorry for my english. Its not first or even second language.

Just found out about the London meet on the 27th and is nice to see Head-fi meets are starting to gather more "momentum" (pardon the Senn pun) over here in the UK now.

 

I am looking forward to finally getting to listen to the new Senn amp & dac combo for sure.  

 

My collection is slightly modest to some on here but I will be bringing to start with.....

 

JH16 Pros with stock cable plus Whiplash TWag V2 Eclipse & Hybrid cables & ic's. 

Sony MDR-Z1000 headphones (with stock cable) 

Sony X1060 32gb Walkman

Sony Z1070  (japan 64gb model)

TTVJ Slim amp (non dac version) 

 

(if anyone is interested I have a pair of Beyer Dynamic DT100's I can bring along also to listen to, very accurate headphone for their modest price tag) 

 

I will also have with me a pair of Heir 5.0 with Magnus cable as well as a couple of other Heir iem's and their Rendition 1 amp which I will have on me from Heir with the view to purchase the one I like most. 

 

This will be my first Head-fi meet I am attending as I could not make the one last year so look forward to meeting fellow head-fier's who share  a passion for wallet abuse.

I'd love to have a listen to your 5.0s. I was a whisper away from buying some from Frank the other day. I also picked up a rendition. Cracking little amp smily_headphones1.gif

Hi GSARider.
Great to see you've found more space.
I hope to make it. 90% certain I can.

My DX100 has Portishead on (the last owner left it on there), can't remember off the top of my head what bit-rate but they're MP3.

It would probably be easier to bring à couple of CDs and à USB stick. If the hotel has free WIFI we could also use Spotify
post #705 of 924
It's not an environment where you can get more than a taste of what there is out there. I shall enjoy listening to whatever is on offer and am really looking forward to it. Especially gsa's abba collection smily_headphones1.gif
