T.H.E. Headphonium 2014 (May 30th, 2014 ~ June 1st, 2014) @ T.H.E. Show in Newport 2014 - Page 5  

post #61 of 214

Hey guys!

 

Turns out the show is taking place literally 5 minutes from the university so I will be attending with my dad. So how is this going to work out? We plan on going on Saturday but there are two hotels. Which one would I need to check in to get my pass and which one has the headphone stuff so I can get my raffle ticket filled out quickly to enjoy the rest of my stay?

Fantastic!  So you'll want to get a one-day pass for each of you and not the three-day pass.  I believe, though I am not sure, that there might be a student discount that you can probably take advantage of as well.

 

T.H.E. Headphonium was too large to fit in one space this year, so it's actually spread out into two main areas:  T.H.E. Headphonium @ The Atrium and T.H.E. Headphonium Too at the Hilton, as well as several other random spots for last-minute exhibitors.  The two hotels are right next to each other and there's a walkway (if you can call it that) in between.  The show program should have maps in it that point out where everything is.  No matter where you go, it's all one unified show.  So once you get your badges, all areas of both hotels are open to you.

 

As for the raffle, there are only 11 participants in the raffle, so it really shouldn't take too long.

 

BTW, don't forget about the Head-Fier's breakfast.  It's at 8:30a on Saturday.  There's more info about it in post #2.  You and your dad are totally welcome.  :smile:

Unfortunately not all the best headphones will be centrally located at the two Headphonium locations. THE Abyss headphone swill  be paired with Jack Woo's flagship amplifier in room 902 in the HILTON. Probably better listening conditions.

Yes, we will have our flagship WA234 mono amps, WA5 amp, AKG K1000 headphones and the Abyss headphones for everyone to enjoy.  :)  Should be fun times!  Look forward to seeing everybody.  Come by our room 902 at the Hilton hotel.

I'm prepared. Now to finagle,sweet talk, scheme and mastermind my way to the show...or just ask if it's cool. Timing is key. 😁.

I wouldn't. Happy wife >>> everything else.
Looking forward to both. Still trying to recruit friends, family and classmates but they all look at me like I'm crazy.

Shaping up to be an amazing experience. Hopefully one that I won't miss.

I'm slightly less excited than everyone else about the raffle, because I'm not eligible.  Still, if the happy faces at the SoCal meet were any indication, I'll be plenty happy for whoever wins stuff.  :smile:

Watching the people during the raffle was the best part. Winning is great but just participating was a lot of fun. I'm as excited to see people's reactions as the chance to win some of the fantastic prizes.

Even more stoked to see everyone and some of the new offerings.

I was quite ecstatic at the last meet when I won the fiio x5, so much so that I believe I started a few people around me.

Better to give than to receive right?

Lol, I can totally picture you doing that!  I think the dude that won the LCD-2 was pretty happy.  He had that deer-in-the-headlights look afterward, like he couldn't believe it happened.

I'll be there. In addition to the headphonominal stuff, I'll be hosting the LAOCAS hospitality suite Saturday morning (Hilton 831). Stop by to relax (your ears), refresh (with a cold drink), and recharge (you smart phone or tablet).

I'll also be spinning multi-channel sets in the Zu Audio room throughout the show.

So I get a call today from the Irvine Hilton asking me if I could go to another hotel. In exchange they would let me keep my Hilton points (Big Deal). They claim they need the room for more vendors for the show. I tell them the Atrium is full and I'm flying in with no car rental so hell no! Also I booked very early on and am a Hilton Gold card member. The only good part about this is they must have had some last minute exhibitors they are trying to squeeze in for the show. I would expect others will be getting this call.
