Yeah I'll probably make a documentary-like series of videos again. This venue seems to be a lot bigger, and more people are planning to attend, so it should make and interesting video.

As with what mochimon mentioned for the video he'll be taking, if there's anyone who doesn't want to be in the video at all, feel free to send me a personal message. I totally forgot to ask this for that other meet. >.>

I'll probably just go around the various setups and attempt to explain what the things are, and make separate videos for impressions of what I think about some gear. Kind of like what Jude or Tyll of Innerfidelity does at the RMAF and CES events (minus the interview part).

Which way do you go when you go in the back door..? etc.. thank you sir..  

Guy's don't touch the artwork.. etc..   Mochimon: I can't believe you got the Museum going on this must have been some conversion,  Magic of Fabric  indeed. and if the room is closer to the front what kin'n'a Master peaces do you have there..?? :):)    

There will likely just be staff at the backdoor to help everyone get signed in. Loading happens in an air-lock. A garage door opens, you load your stuff into a small room, then once the outer door is closed, an inner door is opened and you can bring your stuff into the museum. The interior of the museum is not allowed to be open to the elements at any time. The room we are in is mere feet from this rear door - security will guide you.

OK then - what time is the breakfast?  Must be pretty early if we are going into the museum at 10am

I will be at Skillet on Union Street from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM. Big Poppa is planning on meeting me there.

Setup 10am-11am

Opens to public 11am-5pm

 

If I'm going to bring some gear, should I be planning to arrive at 10 or 11?

10-11 is best, but if there are a few stragglers, I'm sure the museum won't turn you away.

Not sure where you can register, but if you just ask the front desk right when you walk in they will take good care of you.

 

If anyone needs to reach me tomorrow (or tonight):

my cell: (two zero six) 799 - eight198

FYI: Facebook is showing this as a "Closed Group" and not allowing me to see the meet (or any other) info.

I just signed up and was able to see dialog, but it took a while, either for Big Daddy to approve me, or for me to notice the text that says "meets" on it, that I clicked and got in.

I am going to be there! If anyone wants to hear their Hifiman balanced, I will have an extra cable with my HE4. You can feed your HE-XXX to 6W on the Audio-GD NFB10SE (Dual Wolfson full balanced Dac/AMP). I would love to hear the other hi-end gears from other brands and also compare the HE500 and HE-6 to the HE4. TBH I think the HE4 flys way too far under the radar and doesn't get the cred they deserve, so if you want to try them out, bring your music or listen to mine.

I'd like to try some of the other HPs that will be there as well, looking forward to this meet!


Quick question for organizers:
-If we setup our rig with laptop and everything, do we have to stay until 4PM before taking it down or are we able to leave somewhat earlier in the afternoon?
-Are we allowed to take pictures being an art museum and all?

 -You can take your stuff and leave at any time. You just have to go out the back.

 -Their policy is not to allow photography, but since it is part of the meet tradition, I think it should be ok. Try not to take photos in the rest of the museum though.

Flash should be avoided. The flash can be disturbing to other patrons viewing the art.

Hey everyone! I've been a lurker for a while now, but decided to show up to today's meet for about an hour. I had a really great time, and a couple fun conversations. Not to mention the beautiful venue (which had a fascinating exhibit on display on its own), which was really lovely as well. Now I can't wait for the next one!

post #210 of 217
This was one of the more memorable meets we've had! The venue was just beautiful and it was fun talking with curious visitors. Our hosts were very gracious and accommodating, which really made the meet special.

Meet-wise, I was impressed with the Bakoon amp that seemed to have the liquidity of a tube amp with the detail of SS - really good match for the HD800. The LCD-2 I tried with the Bakoon also sounded great, with more treble extension than Ive ever heard from the notoriously dim Audeze.

I also got to finally audition the Beyer T1 and HiFiMan HE-6, which was long overdue! I thought the Beyer was impressive with terrific balanced sound and bass which was really well executed. I think it measures up well with the HD800 for sure. The HE-6 is easily the best sounding planar headphone I have heard yet. I was surprised that it is as dark as it is because I have always heard it described as bright. Maybe it was the amp, but I was very impressed with the bass. Its really an impressive headphone even if it isnt my cup of tea overall.

That is really about all I listened to today as I spent most of my time talking to friends and acquaintences - old and new. This is really a great group of people and its a pleasure to spend time and share this hobby with you all.

Shortie and I had to pass on dinner though...I must be getting old though because I was exhausted. Its been a long weekend and the kids are back to school tomorrow.

Until next meet... beerchug.gif
