I'll be there!

 

I'll have an RWAK100 and RWAK100 as sources, along with a Bellina HPA and/or Cassabria, and if I have it built, an Isabella

fully loaded with dac / headphone, and phonostage (so there will be a turntable... nothing exotic, but it will be decent!).  

 

Looking forward to it!

This will be my first meet so I'm not sure how things work. If I bring desktop setup, will I be able to move around the room and try different people's equiptment or will I have to stay with my own stuff? How safe will my equiptment be if I leave it?

That being said, I'm really ecxited! I hope the turnout is good.

@saintyoo - so glad you're joining us!

 

I've never had a problem with any of my equipment at a meet. All members that I've run into have always been respectful of my gear. I don't know of any instances where things have gone missing at meets, but I suppose it's in the realm of possibility. If it makes you nervous don't bring anything or just bring headphones that you can carry with you. All in all, you should be fine.

post #10 of 317

I'd like to be there.

 

Will HifiMan be a vendor?

 

How are vendors wrangled up for meets like these?

Kunlun,

 

Should I add you to the list?

 

Vendors are usually contacted and if they want to attend they come. I've contacted HiFiMan and I'm hoping they can make it. If you have any suggestions for other vendors please let me know and I'll contact them.
 

post #12 of 317

As long as I don't pick up a shoot that day, I'll be there.

 

I'll either bring a stack of Schiit or my RWA balanced Isabellina with Audeze LCD-2.1's.

I'd like to attend but I has nothing cool to bring, besides myself and my DSLR... I can take photographs for peeps... I'm no pro, still learning the camera but AUTO works wonders... lol

Yes!

 

If Mike Dias is coming I assume this means UE will be represented?

 

You can contact Future Sonics (they are in PA, so not too far), Aurisonics (Dale Lott came last time), JHAudio, Grado (in Brooklyn), why not contact a bunch of people. PM me if you'd like help crankcalling some vendors.
