Also aching to try the cavalli liquid gold (out of my price range and have no headphones) doesnt mean I can't admire

 

Very nice.  If I see you at the meet up, I'll be picking your brain a little to find out which one you like(d) the most!  Maybe I'll find something that is more economical than the Hugo that may sound almost as 'good'.  We'll see hear...

Wow, Brooks Berdan is coming?  I'm feeling two worlds (Head-Fi & LAOCAS) collide here.  :o

It was pretty much the worst kept secret to begin with, so might as well reveal.  :D

Of course I am, particularly alongside a Rag as that pairing has "my next rig" written all over it.  But, I shall be patient.  In light of what the Schiit family is going through right now, I want them to take all the time they need.  :smile:

Love to hear your impressions after you do.  Hey, wouldn't it be cool if your birthday was during the meet?  And we all went out together?  :p  I know, me = lucky bastard.  :D

That definitely sounds like a multi-table setup, especially if the Leviathan makes it.  Let's call it two tables?  We've got plenty of room!  :smile:

Warren can you elaborate on on the state of the schiit family I haven't heard of any problems there undergoing.

Jason Stoddard's father unexpectedly passed away.  :(  And since they are much more like a family there than they are a company, what affects one of them affects them all.  I actually have some great news to report to them about the recent S.F. meet we had, but I want to give them some time and space before I do.  :o

Well, this is the one you won't want to miss....let's just put it that way. The next big SoCal event will be Spring, 2015.

Cool, pretty sure I'll see you there. If you saw the pictures of myself in my review (below), I'll probably be one of the only ones there so it shouldn't be too difficult to pick me out. etysmile.gif

It would have been cool if my birthday was during the meet, but it was yesterday.  At least I had a nice surprise birthday party at my mother's house for me after I was done with a masters class I took.  The classmates at Buffalo Wild Wings (went before class started) didn't pay my bill though. haha :tongue_smile:.............:(.

I will be bringing some equipment (that will most likely get ignored with all the truly awesome kit that will be on hand) but figured someone might like to check out the Garage1217 Ember amp.


I have a question; is there any other Garage1217 amp that anyone would like to check out? Along with the Ember I can bring one other Garage1217 amp (anything in their current line up).

Let me know.



Thanks

Yes. Looking forward to trying that. Any chance of bringing a Polaris? Those are the two I want to compare before picking up a kit. Thanks for bringing the ember.

Read the impressions from the SF meet and I was really hoping to get a chance to listen to your AMB gear and that torpedo. Stoked that you'll be there.
