So I have a small PC shop and we have a rather large back room that we... do not use and it dawned on me today... We could totally host a head fi meet back there!

 

Non the less I know there is a meet coming up in April in Charollette, we could certianly have a meet here around the Beginning of March I think :3

 

I'll be happy to provide the food as well. My city offers... Pizza and Subs. If we keep this under 10 people I'd be happy to get a little bit of food for every one! 

 

The same goes for Drinks, I can Pick up a few as well. 

 

Warning: SHIRTS (Click to show)
Also if you guys are interested, I can get Shirts made for about $6 a piece, I would be happy to do that as well. How ever I'd need PayPal Donations Prior to that to pay for the Shirts. Shirt Order would most likely need to be palced by the Second Week of Febuary, I've already made some inquires about it my self so if you want one let me know! We can decide on a Logo as well and some fancy writing.

 

 

Thus Far we Have

sweet ness. heck if we get 3-4 more guys we can do it sooner! 

 

at least 5 ppl and I'd set a date asap xD I'm egar to meet me fellow head fi ians! 

 

I have good news as well! I'm not big into taking my PC with my as a source, because it's the only device with my Audio GD drivers, how ever, I have a small USB dac that has Optical Output! Which means I can use the Dac then output from it [Digital to Digital Out] into my NFB10es2 Optical in :D meaning, I can piggy back my Beringher into my nfb 10ES2 and use it with any device! Granted I'm not going to be able to us ASIO Streaming but... for listening Wasapi is imo more than enough. 

 

And I have a LapTop, and a 320GB external Drive I can load some Music onto :3 . Which is awesome because I can use my lil Lap Top as a source! 

 

I also have  a Furman Power Conditioner. if we each bring 1 pc and 1 amp I can run 36 devices out of it

LOL, but seriously, I'm hoping we can get more people to attend. I'm pretty excited about trying out new gear, sharing my own and learning new stuff from fellow Head-Fians. Hopefully by the time this shindig goes down I'll have some more gear to bring, and more Hi-Res music to boot!

xD I only have the space to run 6 devices out of my Furman... but nice reaction... 

 

still... I'll give it Till the end of Febuary, on teh First I'll set at least 3-4 weeks out, and prep the room.

 

Worse comes to worse it'll be us two! 

 

With 6 headphones and 6 amps and one POrtable Rig... we should have plenty of gear to compare and fiddle with! Heck we might as well do some comparisons while we are there if worse comes to worse xD

 

Or I can make a GIANT Blog Post, you can bring some Scotch and we'll have a lil listen and share party... I SWEAR IT we shall make this WORK

I would be down to meet up as well. I can bring my HE-500 and am in the process of picking and choosing an amp so I could bring that as well =)

post #7 of 12

Well, you can count me in. AD2000MKIV (AD900 chassis, AD2000 Driver, Beyerdynamic gel earpads, custom driver modification for higher membrane excursion, bent headband, and some other things), Onkyo Reciever with the speaker amp section powering the headphones, and a laptop with some music. I'll bring my E17 too.

WOOT that's 3 guys down! One more and I'll start cleaning out the back room [Going to use the smaller room since there's only going to be maybe 6-7 of us] and posting pics of our listening stations!

 

If you can Bring a Folding Table that would be most epic, we have 2 of them, I think they are each about 7 or so feet. I'm planning about 4 foot per user, and I've got about 8 4 foot spots the room can handle, with outlets for each one :3

 

let me update the orignal post! 

 

Also Hazard if you want, I've got my NFb 10ES2 which should dirve about 3w into your HE 500, bring a balanced hifiman Cable if you want to hear the NFb 10ES2 at it's fullest potential :D, I think you'd be impressed with how it sounds with your HE 500 [I liked it balanced out with my HE 400]

 

Still excited to finally hear the HE 500

OH WHOA ur a new member! Well welcome to Head fi!

 

And I'll update the main thread with this again, but I've got 7-8 small chairs and 3 6 foot tables. The room I'm looking at using has 4 outlets placed rather close to one another, but spaced far enough to spawn over 3 walls. If this stays around 6-7 people we should be fine! I've got a buddy of mine coming in Friday and were going to Clear out the room and spurce things up a bit!

 

And I found the light switch for it.

 

We have some Local Sub and Pizza shops as well, I may see if any of them are willing to provide the food at cost for us. Granted there may be 10 of us, but our thread will generate at least 100's of views in at least a month. So at the begining of our meet, I may have to give a shout out to whom ever  sponsurs us. Loris is  small town so we prefer help each other, but of course. IF we get ANY one to provide anything I'd like to pay em some respects!

 

That said, I'm going out to stop by the Local Pizza and Sub Shops today, Pizza is the current winner at the moment so I'll see what I can do for you guys!
