I am definitely interested.  I can bring my LCD-3s and my new Burson Soloist.  As well, I can bring my portable stuff like AKG 3003s, RX MkIII B, Resonessence Herus, Sennheiser IE60.


I have never organized one of these, but I am willing to help someone who has previous experience and knowhow : )

I should also have added that if anyone is fortunate enough to have the Stax SR-009 headphones with a good driver/amp, I would absolutely LOVE to hear that combo!

Hey folks, is anything happening with this? 


GG, you're selling off your stuff? 

post #8 of 189

I'd be up for one in the coming months. Doesn't have to be very soon, but the last 'large-scale' meet was in May of last year. I think we're just about due.


On a side note, if anyone wants to meet up sometime during next week at HB for a quick get-together, drop me a PM if you would so please.

(This includes you, GG - even if you don't have the TH900 anymore - FINALLY got the You-Know-Whats in this week, must have been months)

Currently in Alberta but heading back soon... When you gotta ship them off? I need to hear those.


Let's plan for maybe around late March or sometime in April when there's more people interested? We can just have a small get-together somewhere and I can drive 4 others.


I sold off my TH900 and what not, and I just shipped off my JH13 today. I got the JH3A combo refunded because of issues.


Next thing on the horizon is the Kaiser 10 as my end game for all. I'm also looking for something that's cheap and useable with iDevices... Also need a dac/power amp for my speakers.... But K10 is $1600 wtf.


We'll see...

A week, two at the most. Hurry up!


Late March sounds good. Hopefully this will become the meet where everyone goes out together to eat afterwards.


End game...that's what they all say. Just wait for when the Noble Gottheit 20 comes out. 34% better treble, ear enlargenment surgery a prerequisite though.


Speaking of which it would be nice to see if I can get some loaner CIEM demo units for the duration of the meet. I know someone was planning that during the September meet, don't know what happened.

Unique Melody does it but need a 50% deposit so we bailed. Didn't have the $ to put down.


Yeah might ask our friend Gil in Seattle to come up and visit :)
