Here is what Google Maps has for nearby hotels.

 

I will take a bit of a look into that and try to make some recommendations for travellers.

Thankyou sir! I'll try an have a decent look tomorrow as well (during day off). 99% sure I'm coming. Trying to get my lovely "better half" to come and we'll make it a "weekend away from the kids".

Might be a good idea now (in first post) to start listing attendess - once we know who will definitely be there - and what gear they'll have. That way for some of us who have to travel - we might avoid having to lug so much gear.

Just an idea - to help pay for the venue - perhaps a raffle or blind auction on the day? If there are going to be any vendors present, they might also like to chip in. I also have some review samples - so I'll talk to the guys who supplied them, and see if they are OK with me donating them toward prizes.

Also - if we do come for the weekend - I'll get in touch early, and I can help you set-up.

Finally - might pay to change title of thread now to "May" instead of "April".

Can't say much more at this point but we're working on something behind the scenes.

Oh no!

 

Disappointing for all of us too. It was looking like the date being pushed further back was going to suit more people, or so I'd hoped.

 

This will hopefully become at the very least an annual event hereafter, so should not be the last chance to attend. Also hoping that after meeting at the event we might have some smaller informal meets from time to time.

Yes, I plan to collate a list over the next couple of days now that venue and such like is confirmed - now I know the space available I can streamline who shows stuff and when etc.

Just an idea - to help pay for the venue - perhaps a raffle or blind auction on the day? If there are going to be any vendors present, they might also like to chip in. I also have some review samples - so I'll talk to the guys who supplied them, and see if they are OK with me donating them toward prizes.

 

Great minds and all that :) Working on this.

Also - if we do come for the weekend - I'll get in touch early, and I can help you set-up.

 

Perfect, will certainly want a bit of a hand.

Finally - might pay to change title of thread now to "May" instead of "April".

 

Ah yes, good idea. Tried before but couldn't do it on mobile and too busy at work to sort it at the time. Will take another look now...

 

Any suggestions about how to proceed welcomed everyone, hopefully I will be covering most things, but doesn't hurt to make sure I'm not missing a trick.

Until I got the BMC it was seriously a contender for best of my DACs - which include the Eastern Electric MiniMax.


Thanks for the vote of confidence (aways good to hear that you have gear that is well regarded by people who know a hell of a lot more about this stuff than me!!

 

I am more than happy to bring the Mk2 along to the meet if anyone wants to try their cans with it (just let me know).

 

Really looking forward to adding to my basic knowledge so if you see a confused looking English guy at the meet that will be me so please dont hesitate to say hi & teach me some stuff :-)

 

Hopefully I can finally decide on some cans & spend some cash with Billy at computer lounge!!!

^ That would be great if you take it along JJH.

As with most things, you never stop learning. I've been into high-end audio since 1985 on and off. Still discovering new things.

Hey guys! I took delivery of the Alpha Dog yesterday. Putting it through its paces now. I promise to bring this to the meet. :) It is one must-hear piece of work. Kudos to  Mr. Speakers - Dan Clark. I think these will be my permanent work headphones.
