Official 2014 SoCal Head-Fi Meet Update

You know, we Californian Head-Fiers are pretty lucky!

 

1.  There are a LOT of us!  In fact, the two largest groups on Head-Fi are the SoCal and Bay Area Head-Fier groups;

2.  We have some kick-ass meets, like the recent Bay Area meet that just happened a few weeks back; and

3.  We are occasionally lucky enough to experience the debut of new gear!

 

On that note, it's now time to mention that...

 

Noble Audio will be debuting - not one - but two new products at our meet!

 

That's right, we're going to be the envy of The Wizard's fans all around the world as we'll get to hear them first.  Woo hoo!  :smile:  But wait, there's more!  Their contribution to the raffle will be the winner's choice of one of these new products.  Yeah, you heard me...

 

One lucky SoCal Head-Fier will be going home with one of these new Noble products

for the low, low price of FREE-NINETY-FREE!

 

Kick ass!  Thanks Noble!

The Prizes (current as of Thursday, March 6th, 2014)

 

  • Red Bull Racing Limited-Edition Sennheiser Momentum (courtesy of Sennheiser)

 

Did you see third_eye's teaser pic above?  That's what this is.  It's a fantastic-looking and true limited-edition Momentum given out to VIPs only.  There were only 1,000 of them made, and they cannot be purchased anywhere (outside of someone scalping theirs on eBay).

 

  • Apogee One for iPad & Mac digital interface and DAC (courtesy of Apogee)

 

Apogee's new One for iPad & Mac brings pro-audio accuracy to portable DACs.  Born of Apogee's 25 years in pro audio, the Apogee One for iPad & Mac features an amazingly clean headphone amp, can be battery-driven, and can be connected via either USB and Lightning.

 

  • FiiO X5 audiophile DAP (courtesy of TekFX)

 

Fiio's top-of-the-line X5 audiophile DAP+DAC comes with a dual-core 600MHz CPU, up to 256GB of storage, and support for various formats including:  DSD, APE, FLAC, ALAC, WMA, WAV and more.  You could pay more for another DAP, but if you win this, you won't e paying anything at all.

 

  • The complete Out of Your Head software package (courtesy of Darin Fong Audio)

 

You can talk about soundstage in your headphones all you want... but Darin Fong Audio takes this to a whole other level.  This price includes – not only their Out of Your Head software – but all of the various preset modules as well.  All told, this is a $600 value.

 

  • plusSound silver cables (courtesy of plusSound)

 

plusSound is offering – not one – but two items for the raffle.  The first is mini-to-mini interconnect, and the second is an LOD-to-mini interconnect.  Both are constructed of silver + 1% gold type 2 wires.  A combined retail value of $300.

 

  • $1000 Gift Certificate from WyWires (courtesy of WyWires)

 

Yes, that's a one-thousand dollar gift certificate.  No, this is not a joke.  And even though cables aren't cheap, WyWires's aggressive pricing will stretch that gift certificate farther than you thought possible.  And, this gift certificate is not limited to inventory on-hand.  You can use it for custom-made cables that fit your specific needs!

 

  • NuForce HA-200 Pure Class-A Headphone Amplifier (courtesy of NuForce)

 

Quick, think of a pair of monoblock headphone amps!  Time's up – betcha the NuForce HA-200 didn't come to mind.  Well, surprise!  NuForce has a new class-A single-ended headphone amp that be paired with a second unit to form a pair of balanced monoblocks.  We're currently reviewing these over at Audio360.org, but you'll be among the first to hear – and possibly win – one of these amps.

 

  • Light Harmonic Lightspeed USB (courtesy of Light Harmonic)

 

This is the one... the mother of all USB cables... the definitive audiophile USB cable that has won more praise and awards than just about any other in recent memory.  With performance that has 20 times the bandwidth of USB 2.0 high speed, and an astounding 10 Gigabits per second bandwidth is twice as fast as USB 3.0, you could do much, much worse.

How To Enter:

 

1. Pick-Up your Official 2014 SoCal Head-Fi Meet raffle card.

 

When you pick-up your badge, ask for an official raffle card to take with you throughout the meet.  This raffle card will contain the logos of every exhibitor that is participating in the raffle (i.e. donating a prize).  To keep the odds of winning favorable for everyone, there will be only one entry per attendee.

 

2. Get your raffle card filled out.

 

As you make your way through the meet, make sure to stop by each participating exhibitor. They will have some kind of task for you to complete.  This can range from auditioning a specific item, to opting-in some info, to bequeathing your firstborn.  Once you complete the task, you will receive a mark on your raffle card for that exhibitor.
 
3. Turn-in your completed raffle card.

 

Once you have your raffle card completely filled-in, turn it into a meet volunteer at the registration desk.  They'll take your stub and enter it into the drawing.  Raffle cards will be accepted until 4:30p.

How To Win & Claim Your Prize:

 

1. Show-up at the raffle drawing to see if your number is called.

 

We will begin the drawing at 5:00p, right when the meet ends.  If the number on your raffle card matches the number called, YOU WIN!  BTW, you must be present to claim your prize.  If you are not, then another winner will be drawn.  We are completionists and MUST have closure.

 

2. Decide to claim your prize or possibly go for something bigger.

 

If your number is called, you can choose to claim that prize, or pass on it in an attempt to win one of the other prizes.  Is a bird in the hand worth as much as – um – a different bird in the bush maybe?  Only you can decide.

 

3. Assuming you decided to claim your prize, gloat.

 

Make an "L" on your forehead, do a victory dance, taunt the rest of us, whatever.  The fates have smiled upon you that day, and you won it fair and square.  Just don't be caught alone in the parking lot after m'kay?

d293a072_o2014schfm_acc_slp.jpeg

Oh, and just so you can be sure this is a legit raffle, here's some legalese for you:  you must be 18 years or older to enter and claim your prize.  Neither Head-Fi.org nor the meet's officials and volunteers warrant anything regarding the prizes in any way.  We're kinda serious about that firstborn thing BTW.  Except for sceleratus, you agree to have your picture taken with the prize you claimed for posting on the meet's impressions thread.  Good luck!

Apparently one of the symptoms that you have been infected is an irresistible urge, for otherwise healthy adults, to stick things in their ears...

post #405 of 733

I'm planning on attending and have registered. Does my significant other need to register if I'm bringing her with me?
