Yes!!! This will be awesome. I was at the 2013 Capital Audio Fest and had a great time. Spent a few hours in the Woo Audio room alone. So much good equipment on display that it was impossible to get to everything in two days. I will most likely attend at least one day out of the three (as the SO permits).

come to the meet and really be a part of the show. We would love to have you there

So is this going to be a meet where we bring our gear.  Or more of a vendor showing for CAF?

This will be a meet to set up gear and the adjoining room is where the vendors will be. I have room for about 40-50 setup and at least 20 vendors in the other room and lobby.  We would like as many headfi members to set up at this show.   The one day meet is designed for our  headfi members   hopefully they get to enjoy the rest of show as well. This year promises to be better than last year which Art Dudley in his Stereophile report raved about this show.   List your gear so Warren gets to list you and what you bringing. Glad your coming and look forward to meeting you there.

Thanks for the enthusiasm everyone!  :smile:

 

We'll be posting exhibitor lists soon, and collecting gear/rig information from everyone that wants a table at the meet.  Table are free and first-come-first-serve.  Based on past experience, I would suggest that everyone who even remotely thinks they need a table should reserve one... even if all you've got are a few cans and not a full rig.

post #15 of 324

The announcement of this event leads me to ask a question: is this event replacing any other headphone shows next year, or will it be in addition? i.e., Will the Headphonium at the THE Show Newport Beach and Headmasters at the CA Audio Show also run next year?

 

I don't really see myself attending this event due to various reasons but won't write it off yet either, maybe a small chance that I'd make it out.
