Ooohhhh, okay I'll have to mark that down on my to-do list then.  Though, realistically, the meet is the main reason why I'm coming.  wink.gif

Yup!  Mercer and I are working on a plan to bring a few people in.  He'll fill you in about it as it's all through his contacts.  On a side note, I have an additional guest coming with me (besides weirdfishes).  And I'm also working on bringing yet another guest as well.  So in total, I maybe bringing a total of 4 people (including myself).  I'll update you tomorrow when I start to get confirmations.

Great news. I am looking forward to the event.

I'll be manning the HeadAmp booth across the hall(?) from the meet all weekend.

Justin will be providing a BHSE electrostatic amp and a GS-X Mkll dynamic amp.

There will be a pair of Stax 009 and Omega ll 'stats along with several top tier dynamic cans.

 

Anybody who know's me from previous Bay Area meets will be familiar with my reel to reel rig and Tape Project tapes which will be the primary source.

 

If anyone is interested, I can also have one of HeadAmp's portable systems. Just ask and I'll see if I can have one there.

 

Should be an excellent show. I've attended all three of the previous CAS's and really enjoyed what Constantine has put together each year.

See you there!

Great Ironbut. Do you have Belefonte at Carnegie Hall on the reel to reel. That would be fantastic on the stax009

YES!  Can't wait to hear the GS-X MkII.  And I haven't heard reel to reel since I was a youngen.

Anyone else concerned that when you go to purchase tickets for this event that you enter your information on a non-secure URL?

post #295 of 645

Most of the tapes I'll have are ones from The Tape Project.

Here's a link to what I have (but I don't plan on bringing all of them!).

Just click on "catalog" and bear in in mind that the last few have yet to be released.

Will Jude be at the show? Or anyone else with the Cardas Ear Speakers?

The reason I ask is that I am discussing with the Cardas office whether I could bring some product with me. That would include headphone upgrade cables and perhaps Ear Speakers. However, better if someone who is more central to this event has some there to demo. That is because my health is not too terrific this month.

Mike Mercer will be there, and he's got a pair of Ear Speakers with him.  smile.gif

post #298 of 645

Forgive my ignorance, but is Mike Mercer associated with the event or Head-Fi, other than being a member/user?  I only ask because I am curious to scope out someone or some way that visitors can try out the Cardas Ear Speakers without pissing off or disturbing someone who has other things to do.  

 

There is also some planning to do about having sanitary or sanitizable tips available.  

 

If the sales members at Cardas are interested, they may let me know next week what they'd recommend.  Sue did mention that Jude had a pair, but those might be review samples at home rather than ones to lug around and demonstrate.   

 

Just don't want to make it more trouble for someone than its worth.  That said, I'd love to hear them!!  I guess I'll bring a sanitizer wipe.  ;-)

Well, he's going to be there for the meet, like all of us, so it's really no different than auditioning anyone else's gear right?  smile.gif

Mike is also bringing the Ear Speakers to the L.A. meet (about a week from now).  He's going to ask Cardas if they can supply him with extra tips to help people audition the unit at the L.A. meet.  I would imagine that he could do the same for Headmasters?

Or an Mjolnir...

Oh, and to stay on topic, I hope to find a pair again at this meet. Maybe Jazzfan will attend...

 

 

Hi aamefford,

I was looking forward to attending this event.  But as luck would have it, a last minute change in plans is preventing me from attending.  Maybe next time.  However, I'm still looking forward seeing pictures and reading impressions from those who do attend.  Sounds like this is shaping up to be another great Bay Area event.

 

@Frank I, Thanks for organizing this.
