Just got back home after a very short but fun weekend in NYC. A brief post for now as it's late and I have to get to sleep, will post impressions and pics later on. Another epic NY meet and a big thanks to bozebuttons for continuing to organize them! Although I was at the meet for only a few hours (let's just say something conspired against me in my goal to wake up early enough to be there at around 10 AM-ish), I had a great (if brief) time there. If I had been at the meet a lot earlier I would've taken the time to meet new Head-Fiers and put names to faces. Oh well, maybe next time, because there will almost certainly be a next time. Can never get enough of NYC and the NYC meets! The best Head-Fi meets in the best city on the planet! And no I'm not biased, because I don't live there and I've been to meets all over the country!
Btw, if it helps anyone identify me, I was one of two guys who got into a brief bidding war on the UE 900 during the auction. Anyone know who the other bidder was? Just curious who I was up against, dang that guy was persistent!
I did think it was funny/coincidental that there were 4 Head-Fi meets in the country on 4/20 - this one, the North Carolina one, the Omaha NE one, and the Michigan one, but conspicuously there haven't been that many impressions posts from any of them yet, considering the reported attendance size of each one (though the Omaha one gets a break for having the smallest attendance, which was the other meet that I was thinking about attending due to its proximity from CO). I've been seeing a trend of comparatively fewer impressions posts after meets these days. Wouldn't most people take the time to at least say thanks to the organizer? I'm starting to wonder if the majority of Head-Fiers that attend meets are getting anything out of them, if the Meet Impressions forum is any indication.

This just makes me ask why you think he was rude/passive aggressive. As others have already said, Dan of MrSpeakers was really nice - scratch that, is a really nice guy. This was the second time that I've seen him (the first time was at last year's RMAF) and he came across as very friendly and nice both times, and someone I'd have no qualms in buying something from (as I suspect I might be doing soon).

I buried all my CDs in my travel containers, and I felt compelled to keep an eye on my stuff lest the perpetrator return and decide to liberate something that was more valuable to me off my headphone display or lift the E17 I had there in its dock serving DAC duties to all my amps.
Another "no offense" here, but I'd consider it extremely unlikely that you'll get your CD back now, after having posted that. I'd think that if you'd posted something more like "I lost <xxx> CD at the meet, did anyone take it? Reward offered for its return" you might have had a chance of getting it back.
