    We're currently locked in for March 23rd at our previous meeting space. 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!
    Yes sir: chicken tenders, teriyaki skewers, cheese, fruit, chips and salsa, coffee, iced tea, and of course the finest water with lemon.
    4. We'll also issue you however many index cards you'll need so you can note your equipment that you brought, so our members can easily see what gear they're looking at on your table.
    5. Finally, there will be a poster hanging at the back of the room for you to list any type of gear you want to sell and for what you're selling it for.

    List of contributing insiders:
    Schiit Audio: Sponsorship, SchiitKit, Raffle item
    Audeze: You want Audeze? We got all-deze!
    Beezar Audio: Visit @funch 's table for the new T4 amp and Walnut DAC, courtesy of Tom (@tomb on the forums) from Beezar!

    Got some good news guys if anyone is interested.

    Meze will be sending me the Empyrean for our meet along with a very cool raffle prize I won’t spill the beans on quite yet.

    Additionally, it looks like a representative from Audeze will be here again representing their brand.

    As always, we’re still working on other members of the trade to attend and we’ll pass along any any all news once we receive commitments.

    Looks like this is shaping up to be another great event and I’m truly looking forward to seeing everyone again.

    @koover Hey Greg, I'd be really interested in hearing those Nhoord driver Grado mods. You know I've got an infatuation with all things Grado.
