SO cool to see you hear Dean! I know you've been a member for awhile - but its great to see you actively engaging.

 

KILLER review of the ADL stuff by the way!

I forgot to email you about that.

 

Yeah, I'm tinkering so my rig at the Meet is firing on all cylinders.

I just bought the McIntosh D100 - killling my audio budget for months,

but who cares!!

 

Head-Fi Forever baby...

 

This one's gonna be FUN,

They're all fun - but I'm especially pumped for this Meet.

Awesome! This is the one to travel in for, no doubt about that!

You will have an amazing experience! Be sure to make a list of things you want to hear!

Personally, I'm looking forward to sell some of my former gears and possibly use that money to buy new or used gear in the meet.

 

I'm not sure about a dedicated table, but I'm sure we can work out a "For Sale" list or easel board at the Registration Desk.

Right on, Michael! As usual, you're aligning all the cool organizations in audio, and Head-fi is definitely a good one. Thanks for spreading the word, as always. Digging the new Beck album, and hoping to discover a bunch of new tunes at the meet. At the last meet, I made the mistake of not writing things down or archiving anything in my MOG favorites (while it lasts----sob!), but I won't make the same rookie error this time...Plan on taking a bunch of phone pictures of headphones and amps that I like, too, which was another mental lapse. If anyone else has meet tips, I'm all eyes and ears...

He's going to bankrupt us, that's for sure!

 

I've wanted, for a long time, to make at least one major meet and decided to go to one of the west coast meets if the timing was good, so I'm coming to this one.

 

I'll bring some Japanese and other bits and pieces, depending on what I have to hand.

post #338 of 733

Eep

 

I'm getting my tax refund like, a few days before the meet

 

I guess I know where it's all going :D

 

Hopefully I can get some JH16s ordered while I'm there, just gotta figure out what I want artwork wise ...

Is anyone planning on bringing the AKG K812's?

 

Tony

 

Not that I know of... HiFiGuy528 was supposed to come, and he has one, but he can't make it.  :(  BRING IT IF YOU'VE GOT IT, IT'S A MUST-LISTEN!  :smile:

Holy crap, seriously?  That is a trek!  Yeah, if you can, definitely come.  It'll be like getting the old gang back together... though the RHA girls won't be here this time.  Hmm, maybe that's why HiFiGuy528 isn't coming...

I think this might be one of the biggest regional meets ever... certainly the biggest of the year.

Thanks brother. I truly appreciate the kind words!

 

GOOD PLAN - and YES, @warrenpchi had a GREAT idea:

bring a memory stick - I'll lace you w/ some tunes!!

post #341 of 733

Memory stick--brilliant! Now all I need is a memory stick to help me remember the memory stick. :wink_face:

post #342 of 733

A good idea is to buy a cheap, say, 16 GB micro-SD card and fill it with music, as they all come with SD card adaptors and quite a few DAPs and other rigs might be able to read one or the other, especially if everyone bringing a computer-based rig remembers to bring a card reader of some sort.

I thought about Roxanne's but they're $500 more :/

And the much longer wait times and everything I think I'll demo the three at least. Leaning towards 16s since I have 11s now but maybe 13s will be perfect. Or maybe Roxanne's will persuade me

Actually, for that you'll want to write it down.  :p

It's a good thing you'll be able to hear them all before making a decision.  :D

Official 2014 SoCal Head-Fi Meet Update

Okay guys, it's that time again... we're making personalized 2014 SoCal Head-Fi Meet badges!  Of course, you don't have to get a personalized badge.  We'll have fill-in-your-own-name badges as well.  But these are cooler!  Here's what you'll need to do to get yours:

278dd81b_o2014schfm_acc_sfd.jpeg

Step 1 of 3:  Register.  This REALLY helps third_eye and I get a handle on how many people are coming, and how many badges we'll need to prep ahead of time.

ac3f4596_o2014schfm_acc_sfl.jpeg

Step 2 of 3:  PM me your Head-Fi handle, real name (first name only is fine), and the graphic you are using as your avatar.

d293a072_o2014schfm_acc_slp.jpeg

Step 3 of 3:  Do the above NO LATER than Friday, March 14th, 2014.
