I'm still abroad by July 19...


Ah well, have fun without me, folks. I'll see you guys at CAS if we also have a meet by then.

post #5 of 521

Definitely interested! Does anyone happen to have a Violectric V200 / V800?

Violectric's distributor Matrix Audio sent us both of these units for the SoCal meet. There is a chance that the new Violectic units may already be shipping by then and if so, we would likely be able to get samples for the meet.

I will be attending.  Unless something comes up, (which I doubt) I will be there.  For now I plan on bringing a couple different things.  Yulong DA8, Beta22 (4 channels), Krell KSA 5 Klone, KG Dynahi, LCD 3's, CAL's.  The gear list might change, then again it might not but I will update my list as soon as I know for sure exactly what I will have.  Looking forward to the meet and thank you to everyone that is involved in planning it.  We really appreciate your hard work.

I plan on it. Summer travel may interfere.

Alpha Dogs
Bifrost Uber
Northern Fidelity NF DAC
Other stuff - I'm in migration mode right now.

Hey, all: 


I'm still alive and kickin', but July is still unknown.  I'll do my best to come and see you and your great toys.

Thanks for the heads up on the next Meet.  Hopefully I won't faceplant into another schedule conflict....:cool:

Reserved, and thank you for making this one on a Saturday!!



post #13 of 521

I'll be there.

post #14 of 521
Will be there guys, was at Chang fest bay area major meetup which happened more than an year ago and was a cracker. Have had only $15 cans all through my life and after being there i got inspired and bought 3 portable goodies last year, they are no Stax rig :-) but at least they were a huge leap for me considering where i came from, so will bring my DX50, Heir 3.ai and Senn Amperior.

Planning to get inspired more :-) and buy some serious gig this time !!
