Me too. 

I've just went through several companie's' flagship phones and only the Hifiman has been satisfying me. Dying to hear the HE-560.

I definitely plan to be there. The Leben CS-300 and the Audio Technica W3000ANV will accompany me.
post #6 of 521
I plan to be there with my Anaxilus modded HD800s, a set of Fragglepants (modded T50RPs) and stock HD650s. Will have a Win 8 tablet feeding an LHLabs GEEK Out 450 which will be paired with a Schiit Vali. All custom DIY cables, of course.

Outside chance I build an amp and bring it as well.

Has CEntrance been contacted about coming? Michael is always nice to talk too (and he contributed some nice goodies last year). What about Arnold?

I have talked with Michael and their schedule was up in the air and he told me to contact them in May so it is on my calendar to follow up.  I have sent inquiries to quite a few vendors / manufactures and will post who is coming or just supporting the raffle.

I expect to be there. Will bring a Marantz CD player and Darkvoice amp with K340 and 80i. The CDP has USB in except from a computer.

Would anyone be able to create a ChiUniFi 8 Logo?  I don't have those technical skills.

post #11 of 521
I'll be in attendance, and I'll bring the Smyth Realiser to demo.
Looking forward to seeing what's new and exciting!

I can talk to a close friend who has experience with logos to see if he can come up with something neat.  Is there a repository of any kind where I can see the past logos?

I was hoping you'd be there. What an amazing invention! I felt as astonished as people must have felt 100-odd years ago watching the first movies, except this is actually really accurate.
