the more the merrier!
ill let you guys know of my attendance closer to the date
for those going, i assume there are going to be quite a few iems but i think someone should try to get some of those alcohol swipes that they have at bay bloor radio for cleaning the tips
anyone know where to get those?
Great to hear this progress while I've been away for the past few weeks. I'm in! :D
A note on security - generally it's not a large concern, though certainly a consideration. Previous hotel conference room meets had printed cards to be worn around the neck and given only to members of the meet (or +1 attendees) so it's easy to spot when someone shouldn't be there. In terms of internal security, that's just something to watch out for and follow the simple rules of "Don't ever take equipment off the table without specific permission from the owner to use it on another rig."
As for lunch, it's almost impossible for everybody to get out to lunch at exactly the same time, so I wouldn't worry about it much.
Since this will be a little bit of a trip for me, I'll just bring:
Buffalo 2 DAC
Balanced HD-650 + Balanced Grado HP-2
If there is considerable interest, I'll drag down the Pass FirstWatt F5, but this will be quite a mission (though worth it if there are K1000s around).
See you all there.
Im also in will be bringing along
whoever want to try bring your own Micro SD with your songs
Heir 4.ai w/Magnus Cable
Arrow 4G ( unsure )
My name's already up there, but I'll just list the gear I'm bringing. Kind of low-end stuff.
AKG K550 (want to trade or sell these)
Hifiman RE-Zero with BTG Audio SPC Midnight cable
I'd be interested in trying out the E17. I have the E10 and E11, would be interesting to see how the E17 fares up.
I will bring:
Laptop with Stoner Acoustic UD100
Bravo Audio Ocean amp
ALO Rx MKII
DIY Magnum v3
My source is my desktop so I can't lug that on public transit. My portable solution is only 256 kbps files (for the sake of space) so it's not a fair comparison to try. I can still bring my HD 650s with the black dragon cable if people wanna try it. Will also bring my e17 with e09k dock if needed (seems we already have a few).
does anyone have a mini to RCA cable I could borrow for the meet?
Yeah, I'll grab a stack from work, maybe even a whole box to share around.
I was going to bring my own tips for this reason though. I think that'd be a better idea. Tips are personal cuz of the fit/seal/sound sig preference, so I think using your own preferred tips (if you have any) would be better than wiping down after every use, but of course having wipes available would bring no harm, just a suggestion.
