I'd like to come.

post #4 of 733

I will be there! Gear is in flux around here because of reviews and the like but for sure I will have the KEF M500 and Sennheiser HD700 with me. A question though is there any interest in me bringing the vinyl rig?

I was there last year substituting for fatman, but I have so much fun that I will attend by my own this year.  I would love to have a table and for all my gears and do you mind if I bring some alcohol to share with all the members.

Sounds awesome I'll be there. I'll bring my hifiman he-400, re-400, phiaton ms 400, dragonfly dac, and this little bear tube amp I got.

post #14 of 733

Registered *and* paid.

 

I plan to be there (coming from the SF Bay Area).  Not decided if I'm bringing stuff (HE-500, HD650, Mad Dog 3.2, Burson Soloist, Bottlehead Crack+Speedball, HRT MS II+ and who know what else I'll have by then) or if I'll travel light.

post #15 of 733
We would like to exhibit/attend.
