Hello everyone
 
Our fantastic organizer pkwak has suggested a proposed date for the next (seventh!) Sydney meeting.
 
 
=====================================

Where: Epping Creative Centre (Dence Park, 26 Stanley Road, Epping, NSW)

When: Sunday 26 March 2017 10:00AM - 5:30PM
 
Cost: $20.00 (Lunch will be provided)
 
Important Rules
1. Please note that you will be required to register upon arrival. You will be provided with a name tag and we ask that you display your name tag at all times.

2. You should bring an extension cord or power board if you can (along with other cables necessary for your setup)

3. Please be careful and respect other member's properties, ask before you pull a phone out of a plug – some amps if they are not powered down before inserting or pulling out a jack have the potential to blow. Again be very careful.

4. Be on the watch out for power cords and headphone cable on the floor and tables, you can easily knock over equipment, or hurt yourself – if this is your first meet be weary the floor will be littered with cable.

5. Please restrict consumption of food or drinks to the designated place ONLY and place all rubbish in the plastic bags provided. PLEASE also wash your hands if it is dirty before touching anything.

6. No wet hair, or put anything in their hair at all (e.g. wax, gel, mousse etc). Please also avoid strong aftershave or deodorant.

7. Please clean in and around your ears. Nobody wants their cans covered with earwax.

8. No need to panic or spoil the mood (it's unlikely I'll run off with your 10kg amp) - but leaving keys, wallets or expensive IEMs unattended might not be a good idea.

  Hi there, I'm keen to attend. 
I'll likely bring along the following:

 
That's great. I will make a list of attendees and the equipment once I start to get more replies.
 
 
  I'm very unlikely to be good exactly on the 25th of June but am usually good around then, as it is a family birthday date. But will be watching this space :)

 
The date is not finalized yet, but maybe you can come in the morning and do the birthday thing in the evening....

Hey guys!
 
I've been out of action here for quite some; I hope everyone is doing well.
I want to express my interest of attending because a colleague of mine wants to really get into headphones, but he is not very tech savvy or has any experience in this field. He is however a huge music connoisseur and has grown up with a big musical family. 
 
The gear I can bring is:
 
DAC/amp
Audio-gd NFB-15.32
 
Amp
VE Runabout
 
Cans
Takstar Pro 80
Goldring DR150
 
IEMs
Havi B3 Pro 1
DUNU Titan 1
VE Duke
FLC Technology FLC 8S
 
Earbuds
VE Monk Plus
VE Asura 2.0
VE Zen 2.0

  Has anyone gotten in touch with Wing @Sefu from Minidisc?

 
Thank's @thecrow and @DJScope for bringing this to my attention :)
 
I have a few things coming up this year but no set dates, if it's ok, I will commit closer to the date. I definitely want to come to catch up with everyone.
In the meantime, I have subbed to this post :)

Just an update that the organiser pkwak told me that the proposed (not confirmed yet) date is now Sunday 26 March 2017.
 
For me that feels better than waiting half a year until late June. I hope it works out for everybody.
