Hiyono, I would certainly have that one with me but do make sure you have a dual 3-pin XLR balanced amp please. I'll likely have single ended just for the HD800.

 

Glad you can make it! I'll have a DNA Stratus in our group of tables (with Warren).

My LG only has a 4pin xlr or single end. Do you happen to have an adapter? Sorry if it causes you extra trouble.

No trouble.  Just a matter of time, and there never being enough of it.  I have to check to see if I have another dual 3 pin to single 4 pin in my possession.  I only make product to order, but I believe I had sold my demo model quite some time ago.  Whatever I do have though that will work for you I will bring.  :)  And if I don't have one I will try to make one before the meet.  (I must clear out my order queue first.)

And my understanding is that they are pretty much bringing everything they've got so that we can all audition for ourselves, putting an end to guessing what they sound like based on scant impressions/hype/trolling/etc.

 


 

In other news, I talked to Jude the other day and he'd definitely like to make it if he can (schedule permitting, as it is time for the Summer Gift Guide and all).  With any luck, he'll be able to come join us.  So, it's tentative, but as I'm a glass half-full kind of guy, maybe we can add him to the attendee list as "jude (tentative)" or something?

 


 

Seriously people, if you're still on the fence for whatever reason, might want to come down off of there and join the partay!  smile.gif

Great news about Denon. I'm excited to see what they bring.

Have any vendors mentioned possible discounts on products purchased at the meet?
post #341 of 665

Not that I know of, but then again I don't really remember meet discounts being publicized in advance.  And yet, they do happen.  wink.gif

post #342 of 665
I offered steep discounts at the last meet when I had tables but most vendors say they don't sell or won't sell at meets, and that seemed to hold true at least for that one, for me.

The Warner Center Marriott is a fantastic venue for meets, and I think the only other one we had there was when I hosted one back in 2009 or 2010. There was a porno convention downstairs though, lol. Some people said they saw Ron Jeremy walking in the hallways. They didn't disturb us though. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and gave us 4 rooms for the price of 1/2 of one room, since there weren't any other people using those rooms that day. There was a dedicated room for lounging and talking but no one used it, and that does interfere with listening of course.

The rooms were definitely classier than the last meet but the huge room that Purrin picked at the LAX Hilton had fantastic/better acoustics and there was plenty of space between tables. Both venues had their upsides, and both were ice cold which I loved.

And if you're not familiar with the San Fernando Valley (which contains Woodland Hills/Warner Center where the hotel is) in the summer, dress very lightly!! It can get up to 115° here in July. It's going to be 110° or higher this weekend. It got to 107° today. If you're going to be lugging equipment around, you may want to bring a few sweat rags with you.

Oh, and DON'T FORGET YOUR EXTENSION CORDS AND POWER STRIPS. You WILL need them!!!

I was originally trying to re-plan a trip to LA to coincide with this meet but probably won't be making it out to LA now. Will look into sending my Audio-Technica AD2000X and/or Fostex TH900 since neither of those are currently on the equipment list, if anyone is interested in hearing either of them.

Yes, that was a good meet, and very good location for sure.  I really like it when vendors sell at meets.  Esp when i am looking for something.  I was planning on looking at the AK120 and hearing it but my compulsion got the better of me so i already know it sounds good now.  

 

That also means that i probably won't need to buy at this meet, unless it is a mini to mini that fits right if PlusSound  has one there that fits the AK-Pico Power.  Easier to check fit on hand of course.  I have gotten a lot of cables from them lately, really like them, good quality, very responsive and swift timeframe, always faster than estimates.  

 

And of course always a but or unless after i am not going to buy anything.redface.gif
