    We're currently locked in for October 5th at our usual spot (see address in bold). Post your thoughts, and what gear you'd be bringing! Same stuff applies regarding used gear sales/trades, etc; please read the slightly-modified copy pasta below.

    We ask that you stop at the table at the room entrance to sign in. We'll issue you a name tag to list your name and Head-Fi name.
    2. At the sign-in table, you'll be issued a single raffle ticket at no cost so you may have an opportunity to win a plethora of gear we'll be giving away to a few of our lucky members or guests. We do ask that members are in attendance at the time of the raffle to win. If you step out for lunch or whatever you may be doing, please just make sure you're back in time. We'll hold the raffle at 3PM sharp!
    Chicken tenders, teriyaki skewers, cheese, fruit, chips and salsa, coffee, iced tea, and of course water.

    List of contributing insiders:
    Schiit Audio: Sponsorship, SchiitKit (+rag2!), raffle item (Lyr 3 multibit).
    Acoustic Designs: Acoustic Designs is a local audio and home automation showroom based in Scottsdale. As they have recently added headphones to their repertoire, @vinyl head will be attending with a large selection of various items (CLICK ME). Also up for the raffle is an Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt USB DACamp! There will be a Cobalt available both in the main raffle, and another one in Acoustic Design's own contest (see their table).
    ampsandsound: ampsandsound will provide their Encore headphone amplifier for demo at the meet.
    Audeze: Audeze will be at the meet once more! In addition, they are offering up a pair of Sine DX headphones as a possible raffle prize!
    iBasso Audio: John from iBasso will be bringing two tables worth of equipment! Full lineup from iBasso including amps, DACs, and DAPs. There will also be both dynamic and electrostatic amps from Linear Tube Audio, and the HiFiMan Jade II electrostatic headphones!
    Big Ear Stereo: A new dealer from Tempe and our second local insider, they will be showcasing the KingKo Ka101 integrated amplifier, Manley Absolute headphone amplifier, Elekit amps, and many more high-end goodies!
    Meze Audio: Meze Rai Penta IEMs!

    There will be a raffle! This time, tickets will not be for sale; each attendee will receive one (1) FREE entry into the drawing, they need only put their name on a signup sheet at the event. As stated above, entrants must be present at the time of the drawing (3PM) to win. Names will be drawn and awarded one at a time; each winner will have the opportunity to choose one (1) item from the remaining prizes.

Possibly more TBA.

    Food and other stuff: At lunch time during the meet, attendees should note that there is a Culver's and a Ruby Tuesday's in the same parking lot, as well as a plethora of places near the i10/101 intersection. I should also reiterate:
    Please let us know what gear you'll be bringing, and it'll be placed below. Also, make note of any audio items you might like to sell at the meet.

    Would you look at that, just in time for me to be in the market for a good open-back. Hopefully I'll be able to make it out, quite a drive as always.

    A few pieces of gear I've been hoping to demo;

    - Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro
    - Audeze LCD-X
    - Sennheiser HD 800 S
    - HiFiMAN Edition XX / Ananda / Arya
    - Audio-Technica AD####X series

    - RME ADI-2 DAC

    If I do end up making the journey, I'll bring a few
    - Fostex T50RP MKIII (Modified, BMF inspired variant)
    - Koss ESP/95X + E/90x Energizer
    - Schiit Lyr 2 w/ some tubes and LISST
    - Maybe my PAT4, or McLaren 702 speaker amp if someone had a mind to try it with an electrostat energizer.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this thread.

    What do you have to do to receive free stuff?
    Never mind. Just saw the "with $799 purchase". Still a good deal.
