Any interest in doing a local head-fi small gathering in SF?

At least 6h for the whole thing, I would say. More is better, especially if we add food to the mix.

Lol, are you serious? For a first meeting where we're trying to keep peace with the guy's wife hosting a bunch of strangers, you want to take over his house for a day? I think we can keep it to a much more reasonable time than that. Maybe we limit the amount of people and keep the amount of equipment down.

For our club meetings, we kept time to around 3-4 hours tops. It was up to the host if people could stay later, but that was more than enough time for us to get together. Let's let this guy keep his life and marriage!

3h will still be useful, but I'll bring less gear then to reduce setup and tear down time.

In theory, a phone with a USB OTG adapter should be a useful source. Put your go-to test tracks on it, hook up to Dimitri's WiFi and you're good, provided the router is close and the bandwidth is high. If every system has at least one DAC, that should do it.

Yes, house has strong Google WIFi coverage, and particularly strong in the room where the table will be set up.

As a last resort, I can also make my Macbook available, for folks with no USB dongles or test tracks on their phones. They can try out IEMs (with 3.5 mm unbalanced cables only) via my laptop's Tidal HiFi subscription.

Dimitri, thanks for generously hosting this. I'm pretty likely to attend. I have a pretty good inventory of gear, but I need to figure out which of it to bring.
I'm voting for Yggy, V281 and LCD-4 :)

Won't be bringing my Yggy this time, just a Mimby, Gustard H20 with 994Enh-Ticha, Burson Fun with SS3601, as well as my Ether Flow, Ether C Flow and Focal Listen.

Edit: Added gear list to other thread
