9th Calgary Headfi Meet! Sept 8 2013 - Page 2  

post #16 of 125
Hi all,

As long as my health doesn't throw another kink in the works, I plan to attend the meeting for Sat. Sept. 7th, from 12pm - 5pm. Might be worth changing the thread title or starting a new one with the correct date. I'll be bringing the following gear:

Headphones:

Sennheiser HD800
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250ohm
JVC HA-S600-B

IEMs:

Shure SE-215
Shure SE-530

Desktop Amps:

Fiio E9 (older version of current E09K)
Bryston BHA-1 (if finances permit before the end of Aug)

Portable Amp/DAC:

Fiio E17
RSA Intruder (again, if finances permit before the end of Aug)

Players:

MacBook Pro 15" - iTunes + Bitperfect
iPhone 5
iPad Mini

With the change to Sunday, I might only be able to come until 3pm as I have family in town that weekend and we have a big family dinner planned.

Also, I will not be bringing the BHA-1 or the RSA-Intruder amps - I've had to delay the purchases due to some unplanned for medical expenses.

Hope to see you all there!

That's exactly what these meets are about - a local gathering of headphone enthusiasts that get together to share their experiences and equipment. Previous meets here in Calgary have been hosted by The Audio Room, a local vendor. The Audio Room not only supplied some equipment for us to evaluate, but allowed us to setup tables for our own equipment. Everyone just walks around talking to each other about their particular experiences and equipment, with most everyone trying out a variety of different gear.

We've had previous attendance from some Edmonton enthusiasts but I personally haven't gone to any meets in the Edmonton area. You're welcome to join us for the upcoming Calgary meet. You may also want to post an 'Interest Check' thread in the Local Meets sub-forum. Here's some examples of past Edmonton meets:

Let us know if you want to join us at the next meet and what, if any, equipment you'll be bringing.
