No direct public transport to me (nearest train station is about 6k away) but with some coordination I'm sure we can work out lifts etc. I have 2 rooms suitable for use, one is set up for speakers etc, the other can be easily used for headphones. Most of my stuff is DIY, all sources covered, vinyl, CDP, PC based, valves, solid state, horns, quads, HD650, k701, etc.


There is a local hifi forum here in ireland, I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed link to it from here (last time I posted here was when we set up the forum and after I posted it here that time the thread was deleted by a mod....kinda put me off coming back here tbh) but if you google for "hi end hifi ireland" you'll find it!


We've had a few meet ups once or twice a year, they are good fun, great to meet people etc. Its usually been more about non-headphone stuff, but no reason why it wouldn't be of interest to have both.


Declaration: I'm involved in the trade now, and there are probably plenty of rules about where I can or can't post etc. Don't really want to either upset mods here, or other users etc etc. I have written to jude to ask about a new registration, but haven't heard back yet.

Mods if you want to remove this post, feel free and I won't post again.

keep in mind that when i was at the New York meet there were probably 40 people there so we may have to go with smaller numbers than that, being as its Ireland and all ;-)

really only 40 in that case we should be happy with 4! wink.gif

 

If ti goes ahead and it is headphones and speakers i think we could get at least 15 - 20. i personally know 3 people who are not on headfi that would go.

Perfect. we should try get numbers together. 

 

are you still thinking of having at your place in naas?

post #55 of 216
Yeah, I don't mind. It's whatever suits really, but having it in my place makes it much easier for the regular HiFi guys - hauling speakers etc is tough.

If that suits everyone?

There's upto 8 or 9 from tirnahifi who would be interested....

Hi guys. A supplier for hifi-man said that he would send some stuff out for the meet if we got it together. this is great news. I have personally never heard a planar magnetic headphone and would love to try one. so if you guys are interested let me know and we can try set a date. biggrin.gif

Forgive my utter ignorance, but is Naas (assuming that's the location) reasonably got to (both in cost and journey time etc) from Connolly station? I know very little of Dublin outside the main town centre and definitely need to travel down on the train from Norn Irn.

 

September would probably work for me ... though I am planning some holidays away that month ... no definite dates yet.
