    It's hard to believe this will be the fifth time we've done this! Our good friends at ZMF headphones will also be attending so its sure to be a hoot and a half!

    JDS Labs will once again be hosting the meet at our office across the river in Collinsville, IL. If you plan on attending, please post on the thread with any gear and shoot me a PM if you need table space so we can ensure the availability of tables, chairs, and power.

    The general meet info is below and will continue to be updated as the date approaches.

    Hope to see you all there!

    Date and Time

    July 13, 2019
    11AM - 4PM




    JDS Labs
    909 N Bluff Rd
    Collinsville, IL 62234

    We're about 15 minutes east of downtown STL.

    I think that's all the pertinent info but please don't hesitate to chime in or ask questions if I've forgotten anything.

    Thanks so much to all of you for helping us make it to 5 years for the meet. You're a fantastic group. I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

    It would be great if the Ethernet connection was available again.

    Nice to get the gang back together! Ethernet connection shouldn't be a problem!

    But what about web browsing?

    ZMF is in! Between the four of us, it should be a great time.

    I'll be there per usual. Not sure if I'll bring anything though. My Yggdrasil takes two weeks to settle in after letting it go cold and if I don't bring that there is nothing to plug my ZDS into.

    Might try finding a cheap battery powered UPS backup for the drive over.

    I forgot that my Sennheiser HD820's will be arriving soon. I bring those along as well so everyone can get a listen to them.

    I am planning on being there again. And I'll need a table, I think.

    Gear I'm bringing:

    Sennheiser HD800
    iBasso SR1
    SendyAudio Aiva
    AudioQuest NightOwl

    Noble Audio Encore
    iBasso IT04
    Oriveti OH500 and 300

    Source Gear:
    Cayin iHA-6
    iFi iDSD Pro (If I still have my review copy by then.)
    And a few DAPs, not sure which ones yet.

    I probably won't be bringing my LCD-3, as it's the best I own, and I fear traveling with it. Also, I have a feeling Zach will have PLENTY of ZMF gear, so I doubt I need to bring Atticus. But if there's anything else in my profile anyone is interested in, let me know, and I'll consider it.

    If anyone has any Stax/electrostats or 64 Audio, I'd be down for hearing those.
  11. PinkyPowers
    Yeah, I still haven't heard Stax. There was one last year, but the amp/energizer wasn't working before I had to leave. Such a shame.
  12. stuck limo
    Whoever had it last year brought it in the building like a birthday cake. And then they put it up before I got back there, maybe because it died? I don't know.
  13. Mshenay Contributor
    This sounds awesome! I've put in the PTO and I hope to make this

    If so I'll update my gear list!

    That was @vinekly who had the SR-009's. He arrived late so everyone didn't get a chance to hear them. I did and they were super transparent but lacked some body and fullness

    Well the guy who brought the Koss stats succeeded in blowing my mind. I had never heard stats before and once they got on my head they stayed there until everyone was packing up. The guy had to basically pry them from my head. :D So I'm looking forward to hearing the Stax (or any other stats) again.

    Also, i hope the guy who had the Bottlehead Crack amp was able to get it fixed. I tried listening to it and only got about 30 seconds on it before it shorted out.
