Bluegrass Head-Fi Meet in Louisville Kentucky.
When: March 2nd 2019
10am to 4 pm

Where: Country Inns and Suites
1241 Kentucky Mills Dr.
Louisville, Kentucky

Time for a Head-Fi Meet here in the Bluegrass. Being at the intersection of Interstate 64,65 and 71 Louisville is a great central location to have a meet to bring together the friends I’ve made at the meets in Cincinnati/Dayton,Nashville,St. Louis and Chicago and points far and in between and hopefully make some new ones.
This community is just full of great people so I can guarantee a good time will be had by all and also a bunch of good gear for your listening enjoyment.

Do you need to bring anything ? Well other than a love of music ,extensions cords and power strips are always a good thing as I always forget something going to a meet. Snacks are also welcome. Water and Coffee is supplied by the venue but anything else is up to you.

Do you have to bring gear? No, but space will be available for your rig if you so chose (and I hope you do as this is the fun of meets, to hear stuff you don’t get the chance to much).

Rules of the Road: 1: Ask first. Most people don’t mind if you want to hear their headphones on another rig but please ask first.
2: Turn the volume down after you are done listening as some are more sensitive to volume than you might be.
3: See rule 1. Covers most everything else.
4: Have a good time and enjoy the music.

Vendors: I’m working on it others are in the works.
Audeze will be here with most of their line of headphones ( I’ll have a gear list up shortly) .
Schiit Audio will also be sending some gear for us will have a list soon.
ZMF Headphones will also be at the meet with their awesome gear.
I hope to be adding more as time goes on.

I'll be there, current lineup, subject to change, Abyss 1266, Focal Clear, HD650, Liquid Platinum, Violectric V200, Vinshine R2R DAC, perhaps a vintage Fisher T-440 Receiver (though I hesitate, it's almost older than me).

I should be able to be there. As my gear changes a lot, I can't say exactly what I'm bringing yet.

That is Awesome. I heard the prototype Platinum at SoCal 2017 and it was very good. Does it run the Abyss ?

That sounds like a wonderful pairing; the Platinum is a fantastic amp.

It jams on the Abyss, balanced out, 12:00 for normal listening, 2:00 for rock. Picked up a pair of Amperex PQ’s, while it’s been a long time since I listened to Dan Clark’s Crimson in Nashville, it has many of the same traits.
