It was a great event last year and hoping it is even better this year.

What kind of source(s) are you guys bringing? Laptop, digital music player, CD player? I don't want to carry my laptop so I'll need to decide what medium I should put my music in. I'm guessing it's CDs.

Please forgive this naive question, but I'm a total newbie...

What kinds of activities go on at ChiUniFi? Do vendors display their wares? Do members bring their kit so others can listen? Are there presentations? Are ChiUniFi events sort of like "mini-Can-Jams"?

 

Thanks

The main driver is for Chicago and surrounding areas Head-Fiers to get together and share their experiences and give others a chance to listen to equipment they maybe interested in.


There usually are a few local vendors but the vendors are not the driver of the event.


The only activities are listening to gear and having great conversations with the other head-fiers. Oh, there is a small raffle at the end of the meet.

Thanks for organizing this, Steve.  Very excited.

 

At the moment, I will be bringing my HD800s, my Bottlehead S.E.X. amp, and my Resonessence Concero.

 

Is it OK to bring For Sale stuff to this meet?

I see you've shifted the schedule one hour early than usual. Will you guys sponsoring this arrive earlier than that? We'll need time to setup the equipment before it officially begins.

I think we were at 10 last year as well.  However, I would say the earliest would be in the 9:30 range as we usually have to get them to get all the tables out as last year we used every last table they had for the meet.

I'm gonna try to make this. Here's a list of everything I remember having:

 

Sources:

 

Arcam 73

 

Sansa clip zip

 

various old cd players

 

maybe an Odac by the time this event rolls around

 

amps:

 

xhead

 

darkvoice 332

 

heed can amp

 

ibasso p2

 

probably an O2 by this time

 

headphones:

 

RS-1 with buttons

 

SR60 w/flats

 

DT990 600ohm

 

Samson 850, R600

 

K701

 

K550

 

Momentum

 

HD558

 

Aviator

 

Koss Ksc35

 

HF2(pads are on the RS-1 as the RS-1 pads disintegrated after several years)

 

probably an hd25 and/or Amperior before 6/22

 

I don't think there's anything else noteworthy that I own. My interconnects are transparent audio TL100 and audioquest evergreen 3,5-3.5
