    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.

    I'm bringing some gear, of course. At this particular moment I'm thinking:

    Ampsandsound Leeloo
    ZMF Auteur (Bocote)

    Edit: Could bring Ragnarok or the WA2 instead. Only bringing one though... Anyone interested in hearing any of them?

    @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.
