Any of the new Schiit gear would be awesome to get if possible...Asgard 3, Bifrost 2, Sol...

We'll be getting Asgard 3 and Bifrost 2 for sure :) and for Sol, I'll definitely ask as nicely as I can! They're busy with RMAF, so after that... Stay tuned my good lads.

Heading up to RMAF tomorrow, will have a chat with Schiit to see if I can get Sol support for the event

Check out Ultimate Ears and Jerry Harvey Audio's websites. They have recommended audiologists around the valley. There is one location that offers 3D scanning if your CIEM producer can use that type of impression. I used Tri-City Audiology for my impressions and they have been good for multiple pairs. The location I went to was in the Tempe/Mesa area.

P.S. - I will be on vacation, so I will unfortunately be missing this meet.

A bit off top but I am about to get some CIEMs and I am looking for a good audiologist in Scottsdale. Any recommendations?
This is where I went last. Phoenix seems to be expensive for impressions at a lot of places so it pays to ask and shop around. The place below was able to do my impressions around my normal $50 / pair or so price range. Others were asking $100 per ear.

Metro Hearing - Address: 11000 N Scottsdale Rd Suite 165, Scottsdale, AZ 85254 - (602) 388-1968

You are a gentleman and a scholar! Fingers crossed.
Back from RMAF, good news and bad news. Bad news Schiit in no way shape or form want to support a brick and mortar location ( I respect and understand there business model) so Im no help on getting the group a Sol. Good news. Feliks Audio. I will have there Echo and Euforia tube headphone amps at both the Audeze event on Sept 21th and the MiniCon Oct 5th. Also I will be bringing analog to the meet in the form of a Gold Note Turntable with a Gold Note phono stage running through the Feliks Audio Euforia tube headphone amp. if I can, I would like a short list of artists that the group would like to here on vinyl.

I would like to bounce an idea off the group.

Would there be any interest in having a CD "Swap" at the event? I have a bunch of CDs I no longer listen to. All in excellent condition. Music to me is like books....you never throw them away but sell them to someone who will appreciate them. Could do a 1 for 1 swap or just a nominal price of say $3 each?

I don’t know how many members would be interested in this (I’m thinking not too many seeing there’s no response. a lot of members are subbed to this thread) but bring them with you. You never know what may happen.

I'd be interested in seeing what you've got to sell. I've got about 700 CDs that I've been adding to since the 80s. I don't have any to trade though, but always looking for good music.
