    I wouldn't bring a desktop setup, just some favorite cans and maybe portable daps/amps if you are really particular and want -your- source driving a vendor's HP.

    There is a lounge section in the middle to relax, talk, listen to people's portable gear. But no folding tables with power run to it for attendee's rig setups like in a local meet. It's a Vendor show.

    It will not sell out. You can bring whatever you want to listen to no problem.

    Last year I went both days, the first day I was burned out after about 5 hours. The next, after like 3 hours I way done. How many headphones can you listen to before it all starts sounding the same? Your brain gets tired. In fact, by the time I had a chance to listen to the HiFiman Shangi-la, I wasn't interested, I just wanted to go home. It gets to be sensory overload after a while, at least for me.
    This year i'm making a list of specifically what i want to listen to, so I can do it all first before burn out sets in!!!

    That's the way to do it! :)
    Also, take a 30-minute break from listening to stuff, eat something, and let your brain recover. Do that every 2-3 hours, and that would carry you through the day. Works for me at least...

    Signed up for this and booked my stay for 2 nights immediately upon it being announced. The NYC meet is the highlight of my year in terms of this hobby. Love it.

    Pizza without a doubt. Really just looking to grab food with other attendees that I've met over the last few CanJams! :beerchug:

    Same here. No Twizzlers or Peppermint Patties since June. :ksc75smile:

    CanJam NYC 2019 was my first CanJam and had a blast - I'll be returning for 2020! Definitely take the advice in the past few posts from @szore and @Zachik - don't burn your ears, take a food break, and most of all talk with other attendees and vendors. I learned a ton. Junior's Restaurant and Bakery is just outside of the hotel - a great place to grab a snack during the day.
