Hi smial1966.

 

WOW...there's a surprise! - you kept that quiet, mon ami  :wink_face:.

 

As you know, I shall be bringing mine - complete with C3gS drivers and GEC/OSRAM CV2523/ A1834 (6AS7G), so hopefully should be doubly interesting.

Can you please put me down on the list of attendees...am really looking forward to this meet (my first).

 

ps. The feliks guys have a separate site now for the English version...ie www.feliksaudio.pl/en

 

Cheers, and see you at Cambridge

Meet attendees

 

In the next few days I'll compile and post a list of all Head-Fi members planning to attend the forthcoming meet. Please ensure that your username is on this list, as meet attendees will be required to register at the event. This isn't as onerous as it sounds, as it just means ticking your username off a list and writing yourself a name badge - with username and real name on. Head-Fi members guests will also be required to jot down their name(s). 

 

Only Head-Fi members and their guests are eligible to purchase raffle tickets, so we hope to discourage non-members from turning up 10 minutes before the draw specifically to buy tickets, as noticeably happened in 2012 and was commented on by several attendees.   

I can now make this as was not sure for a long time if I would be able to attend.  So if you can put me down for 1+1 that would be appreciated. 

Not sure if equipment wise I have much different to what I have seen on the list but will bring the following anyway's: 

 

Chord Hugo

Sony ZX1 Walkman (Japan version)

Sony X1060 Walkman

Sony MDR-7520 with Whiplash V3 Hybrid cable modification wired to both drivers. 

JH16PRO

 

*Can bring along a Tag Mclaren DVD32R for any one interested in how one spinning those old things called cd's.  Only thing is the only head amp source I have is the Chord Hugo and currently have not got around to getting a coax cable that fits the Hugo as my Indigo coax are to big for the Hugo so would need someone to supply a Hugo friendly coax for the day or plum the DVD32R into some one else's dac/amp for the day if they wanted to. Just let me know in advance if any one wishes to try this with their gear an I will be happy to bring along. 

 

Look forward to meeting every one there on the day and hope I don't see or hear any gear I like!

Just a couple of album/band entry antidotes before I turn in for the night as I was shy on the other competitions that flew past...

 

'It's a long drop' by 'The Cliff Hangers'

 

'Forgot to Forget' by 'Alzheimer's Old Farts Band"

 

'Fast cars, Fist's & Verbal tirades & Rock 'N' Roll' - 'The Clarkson Trio'

 

A Leopard never changes it's spot's - 'The Zebras feat the Cheetah's'

 

Conservative House Party Vol.10 Mega mix by 'Space Cadet's'

 

'Daylight Robbery' by 'Those Crazy Old Bent as a Two Bob Note Bankers"

 

'Eye for an Eye' - 'The Cross Eyed Opticians' 

 

'Made In England' - 'Princess Leyland & The Talbots'

 

'Five minutes of Fame' by 'The Undiscovered'

 

'Truth Hurts' by ' The Lying Fury's'

 

'Back to the Future'- 'The Delorean's'

 

Guess I got a bit carried away with my couple and done all ten in one hit - actually 11 but can't decide on one to exclude.

Good fun all the same :smile:

Glad you can make it!  I'll be bringing some extra optical, coax, line level RCAs etc so I'm sure between us we can get things covered. I used to lust after the DVD32R back in the day so quite selfishly I'd love to have a play with one if you're able to bring it along ;).

The venue is covered by 2 BT Openzone hotspots so paid for wifi is available - http://www.btwifi.co.uk/ - but I haven't tested the signal strength nor reliability of contact.

Hi all!  

As the meet is drawing near (yay!), I think it's worth mentioning a couple of things to help make it as successful and enjoyable as possible for everyone.
 

Meet tips

Old timers and first timers alike, please have a read of the "Meet Tips for Newbies" post here... http://www.head-fi.org/t/450911/uk-meet-tips-for-newbies#post_6090776.  It's mostly common sense, but definitely worth a look so we can all be confident that our gear will finish the day in the same condition it started, and also so everyone gains the most enjoyment possible from the meet.
 

Spare bits & bobs

For those bringing gear along, work on the assumption that you'll have a single electrical socket to play with...which inevitably means, bring an extension strip (or two, or three).  If in doubt, bring more than you need as there's bound to be someone who could use an extra one.  Same goes for spare cables...power, digital & analogue interconnects, 1/4" > 3.5mm adapters (and the reverse), XLR > 1/4" adapters etc etc.
 

We've got a fantastic selection of gear lined up for this meet and some mouth-watering raffle prizes so I'm confident it'll be the best UK meet yet.  Thanks to everyone for your participation, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all soon :D

 

Mark.

Booked tickets, decided to bite the bullet and take the 3 hour train/bus/walk triathlon (someone decided to dig up the railway tracks surrounding Cambridge that weekend... just my luck).

 

I'll bring the following (might have to revise my list once I've looked at packing it all)

 

Fostex TH900

Headamp Gilmote Lite

dB Labs Tranquillity DAC

Martin Logan Mikros 90 (small review coming I promise <3)

Fiio E17K

Zero Audio Duoza (if anyone is interested)

Monster Turbine Miles Davis

 

Cant wait :)

They did? - Hmm... I'd better check it out! - where are you coming in from? - if the train tracks are out of commission, I'll be taking the coach from Bedford (X5)... maybe catch you on board! wink.gif
