CanJam SoCal 2015, March 28-29, 2015 - Page 21  

post #301 of 1339

Hopefully the Hugo TT and 2cute will be there along with some high end dacs. That is the only thing on my list at this point. The Hugo is just good enough to change out my home dac and it does higher bit rates but it is kind of a pain to take in and out of line. Home dac has outperformed even newer models for years, don't know what i will do with it, and my USB converter now that i don't use them. Think i will bring a box to put on list of for sale items too. I have a bunch of stuff that i should put for sale on forum just because i don't have time to use them and maybe i will bring them along…..

Hello all, I find it quite perplexing that everybody is booking airfare. For me, I'm taking Greyhound because it's 7x cheaper and takes not much longer after you account for the 2-3 hours waiting at the airport. At least I'll be able to take in some scenery on my way down and avoid the lines at the airport. I recommend more people to travel by bus or train to the event: save on the environment, save boatloads of money, and they don't hassle you on wearing headphones!!! If you wanna save even more then you can book a hostel instead of a hotel. For me, I've visited 14 countries and the most I've ever spent on a hotel was around $70.

Also I want to give kudos for all the awesome insights gained on this forum so far. Especially useful was the recent post about bringing your own eartips.. because yeah in-ears can be one heck of a lot more convenient for on the go, but who wants to share ear germs auditioning them. And the earlier insights about bringing your own sample test tracks - you can bring your favorite well-mastered songs in FLAC or WAV on both your cell phone, SD card or USB drive, AND audio CD so you can get a more complete understanding of the headphone's performance by referencing them to something you're familiar with.

Ah, I can see how you might be confused. :smile:  However, I should note that there are a bunch of people coming in from the Mid-West and East Coast.  For them, a Greyhound would take considerably longer than a flight.

 

For example, let's consider Jude's trip here from Detroit, Michigan.  Taking a quick look at the schedules for those days, I see that Jude would have to board a bus on Wednesday, March 25th at 7:45a so that he could make it into Los Angeles at 4:25p on Friday, March 27th.  That would still put him an hour away from Costa Mesa, so we should tack on another hour for the Metrolink.  Total travel time would be approximately 2 days, 12 hours and 40 minutes.  Or to put another way, just shy of 61 hours.  A flight would take about 6 hours.

 

And FWIW, we also have people coming in from Europe and Japan, which presents special complications for buses (oceans, lots of deep water, etc.).

 

Why are there people coming in from all over the world you ask?  Because this is not just a local meet up.  This is CanJam, the largest personal audio show in the western hemisphere... and this particular CanJam is the largest one ever.  To be serious in the hobby, and to miss this event, would be tantamount to a minor tragedy.  :D

Hey dallan,

 

Remember how you said this after the SoCal meet last year?

Thanks also to N3rdling for the iron, and Gary G of Musical Fidelity for helping fix my amp. You guys rock!

 

Based on what's about to happen over the course of the next two weeks, I think it's safe to say that you're gonna spoodge this year.  :D

 

Cool updates coming soon folks, stay tuned!  ;)

I think if we were considering any kind of non-flying transport, we'd have to set off about now-ish! :p

And that's if he can get the express bus. Not an option for me...
It once took me 16 hours to make a 4 hour trip on greyhound because the bus stopped at every opportunity along the way. Not to mention the screaming kids in the seats behind me. ..

I will be transporting my Hanes Boxer/Briefs using a matched 3-piece set of Tumi Alpha 2 International Traveler luggage w/ accompanying toiletry container.

Shoes by Ecco and my TSA Security agents will be (not necessarily in order of appearance): Maurice, Donna, and Kumquat.

 

:p
