So, if you're around SoCal May 31-June 2nd - come by The Headphonium event at T.H.E Show Newport (same people that put on T.H.E Show in Vegas as an alternative to CES).  The Headphonium at located at The Atrium Hotel - as this is a three hotel event.  It flanks a pool and an outside bar,  On the opposite side of the pool will be a huge vinyl ballroom put together by Record Collector magazine!  

That's gonna be a BLAST!  

 

Sounds like a blast!  What are the hours on the different days the the vendors in The Headphonium will be open?

It looks like an amazing event you've got organized there. Congratulations!

WUH?

Ya Bastid.  Man it's gonna suck not having you there bro.  

 

but Thank You

 

I'll see you at RMAF, after all, like you, I also have a boss one week out of the year: Marjorie Baumert at RMAF!!

Looking forward to covering a KILLER CanJam at RMAF for you brotha!  How many years its been in Denver now?

I've been covering CanJam since your first one near LAX.  I'll have Kenny with me again this year.

Hey!  That'd be good too!  Away from the hustle and bustle of the hustlers and bustlers...  smile.gif

I'll be there!

I'll still be down here too!!

 

Not moving until end of July.

I met up w/ Jude at your last meet - at the hotel near the airport right??

That was a GREAT, inspiring time.

 

They just gave me a small ballroom and asked to make it happen in this situation,

a dedicated headphone area at THE Show Newport

which I'm AMPED for - but the meets I've been too (and been part of, like The Village Headphone Meet - 

that was awesome too), you guys are built to do it.

 

I've just been the guy listening and writing about it for years,

when I wasn't in the studio or at a DJ gig.  Next thing you know I'm bein asked to help put this little thing

together!

 

Look forward to your meet.  Josh is it??

Wait a tick, you were at that one?  I was there!  Did we meet?  Man, that was such a good venue... the size of that large room just dispersed all the ambient noise so it was REAL quiet at times.  It was also my first meet so it'll always be kinda special to me.

You're moving?

Yes. We met briefly - you and Jude were both doing things so we didn't really chat much.  I remember you have DNA there and I LOVE his stuff!  

 

Yeah we're moving back up to the Bay Area.

We bought our first home and some land - a deal we couldn't pass up!

 

psyched to meet you again

and I'm glad you're comin' down to Newport

Thanks to Tyll for this terrific write-up of T.H.E Show Newport at Inner Fidelity:

 

CHECK OUT LINK HERE

 

Looking forward to seeing you Tyll.

We've worked very hard to get all sorts if different stuff going at T.H.E Show Newport this year!!

I'm gonna have fun, f___ all the politics and messing around.

 

 

As a proud member of the other tribe (RMAF - and have been helping w/ promotions for CanJam at RMAF

since it started) I'm also psyched we got so many different people working TOGETHER for the event.

 

It's a community right?

 

That's one of the things I love about personal audio.

Thanks to Tyll for infecting me with the personal audio bug years ago, and to Jude for keeping me interested until I got hooked.

I remember how nervous Jude was before our RMAF panel in 2010 about Embracing the Industry's Future

and look where he is now - 

 

and, most importantly - what ALL OF YOU have built here!

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Michael Mercer

hey!

 

I just got off the phone w/ Jude.

He didn't tell me about the video yesterday - but YES.

 

This is why I'm so excited to be a part of the personal audio revolution.

I've been a young guy in an old mans industry too long in high end audio, 

and you know what?

 

Some of my closest audiophile friends are also getting into headphones now!

 

I am indebted to this community, and especially to Jude.

But ALL OF YOU HAVE REASON TO BE PROUD

 

So what sign am I flashing?

There's a video?  I'll drop a sign for my fellow Head-Fiers ANYDAY.

 

You guys keep me engaged
