Had you gotten this resolved? I have to book a room soon too.

Any word on getting the HE-400i cans to demo at the meet?

No chance. They haven't even finished the production model for reviewers. I just got an email from Peter at HFM. He said to look for the productions models at the end of April at the earliest. 

 

Now it's possible that someone might have the he560 in time for the meet.

Nothing yet.  I'll update the thread soon with the new joins.  Been very busy lately and tired.  And frustrated that I still haven't fixed my amp.  As much as I hate to admit, it may not be fixed in time for the meet and I may have to send it in.  Hoping not though.  I'll still bring it regardless for display, even if I can't get it fixed in time.

I was going to come in and ask this.  I just realized this was the weekend of Easter so getting a room might be more tricky.  I should probably go ahead and call ahead for the room, huh?

 

Also, looks like I won't have any trouble being able to come :).

 

As said before I don't have much that is new to bring to the table, but I will be glad to bring everything in my sig (I'm even open to bringing my sig rig for the TiHD if there really is any interest at all).

Yeah, we have to put in for ours online, so it's nice.  It just got approved within the last couple of days.  Also, compared to my last job, it's so nice to not get grief ever time I ask for even a day off.

Well my manager took me aside the other day, and it boils down to coverage, she's trying to hire some one by then because we need more ppl. 

 

So if she can get a hire I'm good to go! If not I'll need to ask my two managers if they would be willing to swap their days, we need my Dairy Manager on Saturday, and my Frozen Manager on Sunday, and each manager usually works the reverse day

 

SO I might be able to go, I just found a decent price on a rather nice Subaru Wrx, low mileage up in jacksonville NC... so I'm hoping I can bribe them into working the weekend so I can attend the meet and get a chance to look into the car!

So the Oppo PM-1 will be available mid-April. It would be awesome if someone could snatch one up before the meet. :o

+1 

 

I'd love to hear the Oppo!!

I've been in contact with Hifiman and they are going to try to send me an HE-560 demo to bring along to the meet. I'm not at my computer the rest of the week so I'll update the first page when I get back to my computer. I'm using my phone right now.

Thanks to everyone for being patient. Looking forward to this meet.

Looks like I will be able to make it.

I'm just starting out, so the only thing I have to bring are my HiFiman HE-500 (no mods).
Will be my first meet, and I'm really looking forward to hearing the gear that will be there!

Any suggested pairings for the HE-500s?
