I'm in. WA22/HD800's.
post #4 of 530

I guess I'm in. I'll be bringing my ATH-AD2000MKIV, FiiO E17, laptop with some music, and my receiver (speaker l/r outputs power the headphones). 

post #5 of 530

I'm interested. No idea what I'm bringing yet, sorry.

post #6 of 530

Definitely interested.  I'm still a newbie to this forum so hopefully the decided date and time comes soon.  I'm a college senior and my schedule is quite tight, but I happen to have Friday's free!  I have a pair of Logitech UE6000s, custom ATH-M50s(with detachable cable), Superlux 668b, Koss DJpro100s TB edition. I'll be bringing my laptop and 7th Gen 120GB Ipod Classic if I'm actually good to go.   I'm excited that the location is in Charlotte, NC since I'm only around an hour away!  Hope to see you guys there!

post #7 of 530

I will plan to be there and will bring my Moth 2A3 amp with RCA monoplates along with my Woo Wee to feed my Jade electrostatics. A Cary 306SACD will be the source. I may also bring my Grado HP1i.

post #8 of 530

Count me in as well. DailydoseofDaly, I wouldn't mind trying out the Project Ember :) I've been considering building one myself.


I will bring my Bottlehead Crack + Speedball with Senn HD 700 and HD 650. I'll also bring the HE-400 in case people would like to try it on their setup (I find that it's not the best match on the Crack, IMO).

post #9 of 530

I'll probably go assuming I don't have a conflict with whatever date finally gets decided. I'll probably bring a guest.


Gear I'd bring:


Beyerdynamic DT-770 80ohm

Audio-Technica ATH-A900x

AKG K240 Studio + Zu Mobius Mk. II Cable

Sony MDR-XB500

Monoprice 8323 + Comfort mods (Velour pads & headband)

Fiio E17 + L7

Macbook Pro w/ Decibel & Flac collection


Anything else I'm able to obtain I'll add to the list.

post #10 of 530
Planning on attending depending on the date. I'll bring my Technics SL-J2 turntable, CD player, LCD2, open-modded JVC HARX-700, AKG k240 Monitors, and my O2/ODAC.
post #11 of 530

I would love to attend as long as nothing else pops up on whatever date this meet happens on. Will likely bring...



Schiit Modi

Fiio E09k + E7

Beyer DT990 pro 250ohm

Philips Fidelio L1

Senn HD 25-1 II

First post updated.  Some of the Charlotte area meet veterans will be scouting out a location after the holidays.  It will likely be just north of Charlotte along the I-77 for easier access for anyone coming from the North. Looking forward to seeing everyone there who can make it.  First time meets are always lots of fun.

It would be a long drive for me, but I might have to come to hear the K1000s :D
