According to someone I just called at the hotel, self parking in the structure on the property is 1st floor only. So if the spots outside fill up, you can use that, not sure about what to do since there is the $10 rate for people attending the show. She said it was automated in and out, so I would talk to someone about making sure you get the $10 rate.

Coffee at hotel's usually aren't that great.. but then again, i'm kind of a coffee snob according to some. lol.
HD600's are cool to bring but keep in mind that the place will be loud so open back headphones, no matter how well you know it's sound signature, will make it hard to gauge the product you're trying to listen to. I used to bring my HD650's but now i'll bring one of my closed back that i'm very familiar with to reduce outside noise interference and even that doesn't really help. I'm going to guess I'll be the only person walking around with the Sony CD900ST headphones as it's pretty rare in the states. It's been so the past 3 years for me so I have a sense of pride for that. LOL. plus it's been ways for others to recognize me.
I've been to quite a few CanJam & meets and have never had a problem with too much background noise to gauge an open-back 'can because I just simply turn up the volume accordingly in these rare instances. Probably I'd like to see your Sony's if that's cool.

With me in the building no open backs are safe. :ksc75smile:

Hello Fellow Head-fiers - unfortunately, we're not going to be a vendor at SoCal 2019 this year, but we're excited to hear about all the gear at the show this weekend. Drew attended CanJam Singapore earlier this year and he was super impressed with some new IEMs from QDC and audio gear from Matrix Audio.

QDC is an IEM company from China and is one of the leaders in both consumer and military/police contracted in-ear monitor development work. Matrix Audio, also from China, has some great high-end component headphone amps/DACs. We're thrilled to be able to bring both of their product lines to the US at Moon-Audio.com. You can check out their CanJam Singapore setups (from our blog) as a preview for this weekend (likely similar). They'll be exhibiting at SoCal all weekend, so go check them out when you get a chance. You won't be disappointed.

Enjoy SoCal and have a great weekend everyone!

I plan on coming Saturday afternoon and Sunday, so I am hoping the parking is adequate. I driving in from Riverside County both days which is about an hour away.

Is there an official (or unofficial) buy/sell/trade place at CanJam? It's been a few years since I last attended.
I was also wondering about this, maybe we could figure out an empty spot or something inside or outside the complex to sell pre-owned items.
Or ill make a sheet of what I'm selling and tape it to my backpack, well see what happens xD

We could set up a thread where people are going to be there can post stuff for sale / trade.

Excited to swing by tomorrow. It's been a couple years since my last CanJam. The upgrade itch has finally struck again...

Denise prodded me to do this, and Ethan OKed it, so here goes: we're trying something new at CanJam SoCal this year.

Specifically:

"Build (and test) your own Magni 3 or Modi 3 for $79."

Yes. That's right. Build your own, save some money, and get a CanJam-only sticker showing the world you built it.

Sounds scary? It's not. We'll have people there to help you with any part of the process, from assembly to Avermetrics analyzer testing. There's no soldering or any dangerous voltages. It's literally only a matter of minutes to get to a finished, working product (or two, you can build one or both if you'd like.)

So why are we doing something like this? Because Alex Martin, our head of operations, had so much fun doing this with middle-school kids on Career Day at our local schools that we thought you might like it too. (And don't worry about the kids at the school, we weren't selling Magnis to the, just giving them an idea of how manufacturing works. The school district was so pleased we won an award for it. Maybe Alex can post that up.)

But I ramble. I hope to see you there--I'll be at CanJam both days!

Looking forward to seeing all who will be there on Sunday. I will be flying in and out the same day. It will will be first time out of the house (except for medical trips) for almost 4 weeks--after coming down with pneumonia during a Memorial weekend trip.
