post #31 of 733

Ooh, I'm in. That's waaaaay too close to pass up. Will have to think about displaying, simply due to logistics and time (plus my equipment is nothing special).

I signed up. Not bringing anything worth a table anyway. Let the waiting begin biggrin.gif

Hey bro,

 

I don't need any table space. Anything I bring will be hanging around my neck ;)

 

Also, curious question: Can I remain anonymous? I'm not interested in registering with my real name, city, etc. I prefer to keep my online persona intact, and avoid all association with my real identity. Will that be a problem?

I can't speak for Ethan/@third_eye here - but we usually use our Head-Fi tags on our badges for the Meets.

 

However, we're a proud tribe here at Head-Fi, and most of us who've been doing this for awhile, well, most of 

the fun is in meeting new people, and hangin' with our crews that we're familiar with already too. Once we get 

to know each other most of us know our real names.

 

But - like I said: @third_eye is running the show - so that's a call for him!!

 

I'm still pumped to see the next one going down in March!

Last years LA Meet was a BLAST.

My table was a s***load of fun!!

Alriiiight, I'm totally there. Like many others, I won't need booth space or anything--I'll just bring my one measly pair of headphones :-)

 

See you all there!

and I was JUST lookin at it, thinking: Hmmmm, the last time this thing was lent to a manufacturer (who MUST remain un-named) they didn't set it up properly for their headphones!

And I wasn't as pissed as I was upset, because I wanted others to hear what I've been hearing, and, now, @warrenpchi and @weirdfishes too!!

 

So, for you brotha - I may have to consider how to do this and not TWEAK out my OCD!!

LMAO

You know it!!

 

Also - I was thinking of bringin' my CEntrance HiFi-M8!

As I brought it on every trip since I got it!! It's KILLER as I get to bring the performance level of a desktop amp with me on the road - 

and it's the only solution thus far that, when I travel, it's all I bring (along w/ my DAPS and laptop of course)

My review at Part-Time Audiophile HERE

 

Anybody taking one of these?
