It's a meet habit for me. I consider it common courtesy. Turning down the volume before getting up from a station is a good habit, IMO.

I just noticed a icon in my posts for Can-Jam. Upon mousing over it, it shows "Attendee". 

If it doesn't mean anything than no big deal, but if it relates to something important, like head-count or something more important, I would suggest not counting me in attendance until I register.

Ah, yes, before leaving too! Good point. I used to do that when demoing at record shops, back in the day.

I'm super pumped for this meet, can't wait to see everybody in a few weeks!

It's still almost 3 weeks away. Time is dragging.

Well, I had a feeling..... I will not be attending after all. I've just been informed that my requested time off got pulled and I will have to choose another time.

Oh well, I tried at least.

Hope you can make other head fi events in the future.

Yes, like next year's Canjam perhaps.

Solitary - What gear were you hoping to trial?

Newbie here, but a long time Head-Fi lurker. Very excited to meet everyone at CanJam!

Current view from the Bridge of Gardens at South Coast Plaza (across the street from CanJam):



If CanJam has similar weather in a fortnight (add a few days), everyone is in for a treat!

There was a quote from one of the organizers that the SHaG would be truly epic (first few pages of the thread)...so I would think so...:blink: 

 

Oh yeah I have been tallying the t-shirts as I go so here is the List I have (I know someone else was going to do this also, but hey, what can I say the engineer in my made me do it :biggrin:):

The first thing I wanted to do was verify whether something was amiss with the headphones I have or if an amp was the solution:

If headphones: my list of headphones is: (not comprehensive of course)

Koss Pro 4AA

 

Audio Technica:

ATH T400

AUD ATHAD500X

ATH-AD 700X

 

Phillips SHP9500

Denon AH-D1100

Shure SRH840

 

Sennheiser:

HD558

HD598

HD600 (just for kicks)

 

AKG:

K701 (Just for kicks)

K702

K240

K240 MKII

 

Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO (250 ohm)

 

If an amp is the solution, then my list is as follows, but in no way comprehensive:

Oppo HA-1 (just to see it for kicks because it's pretty, can’t afford it though)

Schiit Magni

Schiit Vali

Bravo Audio V2 Class A 12 AU7

Bravo Audio V1 Valve Class A

Bravo Audio V2 Valve Class A

Fiio EO9K

Etc. in the not too pricey category.

 

Nothing tragic, this can all wait until next year.
