I'm going to try to be there.  This time, I'll have some portable DACs with me.  If I go, I will have a beyerdynamic)))) A200P on hand, along with a CEntrance Hi-Fi M8, an HRT microStreamer, and a FiiO E17.   

 

I have yet to hear the A200P, but last night, I tested hi-res playback using the following chain:

 

Seagate Wireless Plus --(wireless hi-res)-> iPhone 5 --(CCK)-> HRT microStreamer --(audio)-> E12DIY -> headphone

 

and it sounded glorious!

FYI... my "price/performance destroyer" Decware/Concero/HD800 rig will be making one final appearance during this meet. Already sold the HD800's to HideousPride but the Decware and Concero are still up for grabs.

 

Main perk with the Decware is the tube complement. I'm including the best I ever found for it (and believe me, I've rolled gobs of 'em!): Emission Labs 5U4G meshplate and Mullard E88CC 1960's old shield. Also an RCA 5Y3GT for good measure. :)

Dunno yet. The meetup will help me decide what to do. :)

I will be attending the meetup too!  I'll bring along my Beyerdynamic Tesla T1s, Yulong DA8 DAC, and Bottlehead Crack + Speedball.

Is anyone planning to bring a pair of Alpha Dogs? Dan won't be able to make it this year.

Just remind him of how his mom and dad used to complain about his listening to his Kenwood setup in the day. (not that I had anything to do with influencing the volume and bass levels to be turned up, at all...)  :wink_face:
