    Big thanks to @DannyB an @Army-Firedawg for all their help! 
  2. Army-Firedawg
    This is the list of attendees for the Charlotte NC meet.  I'll post who is located where so we can get a decent idea where everyone is so people can potentially car pool etc... Please let me know via commenting on here or PM the following:
    1.)Where you're located (city/state)
    2.)What gear you are bringing (if any)
    *If you're unable to bring any gear, for whatever reason, that is ABSOLUTELY fine and ok! So long as you come with an awesome attitude, sense of humor and an excitement to meet the rest of us audio geeks, that's all we (or at least myself) want. OH but you can bring cookies. Everyone likes cookies!
    *Vendores, M.O.T. etc...
    IF you are a manufacture, representative, or member of the trade and would like to have your products featured at Carolina CanFest 5, please contact me via PM for details, specifications, as well as what your requirements are (i.e. table space etc...). We are extremely grateful for all interest shown in our event from vendors and want to ensure you and your products are given due notice. 
    If EITHER list fills up IT'S OK!!!! I will simply make another one.
    Prices, Customs & Courtesies: 
         The cost to attend this meet is FREE!!!!! This is thanks to the host & sponsor of this meet @DannyB. So please be sure to thank him when you see him, he's the "really good looking guy". If you could donate a anything to the cost of the room it would be greatly appreciated but is by no means required, he couldn't stress that enough. 
         Please be respectful towards ALL attending members AND their equipment, there will be a 'you break it, you buy it rule' but I'm sure this will not be an issue for we're dealing with adults not simple minded privates here.
         When demoing a piece of equipment please see either the owner or their instruction left at each item on how to safely and correctly operate their gear as no not damage quite sensitive material, i.e. you should turn the volume knob down before and after you're finished while not blasting it out while you're listening. 
         Be mindful of those around you. Keep voices low when talking as to minimize noises heard by listeners. Wait your turn but also DO NOT be selfish with a piece of equipment. 
         For those bringing guests just please be sure they mind the rules listed above and don't mock or gock at the prices some items will have. I'm sure most of us have had that moment where people can't fathom spending x dollars of gear and love inserting their 2 cents about they feel it unnecessary and/or wasteful and no one wants to sit threw that
         Lastly PLEASE bring source material. I.e. Laptops DAP's etc... so far from the list very few people are bringing computers. I forsee this making things quite difficult especcially when trying out dacs. So if you've a computer or applicable media you can bring PLEASE do so.
    For those who're considering selling their gear.
         Selling of ones personal gear is allowed SO LONG AS it does NOT deffer from the intention of the meet. List of prices and equipment sold can be either discussed via PM, ad. on ones account, personally via face to face, or via small card at the meet. Do NOT post what you're selling nor prices on the thread. This is a meet designed to put faces to names and listen to gear that's otherwise unlikely to have ever been heard; not an auction house due bare this in mind please.

    Come on everybody let's get some interest going on here!! We've a collaboration of 2 meets going on. First in Charlotte and another in Wilmington NC so should have an awesome interest between these areas! Let's hear from you
  4. Mshenay Contributor
    Right right, it's nice to see Rasta's got an LCD 2 to bring! 
  5. RastaDolphin
    I think we should start a petition to the Head Fi admin to make a map component to the site that shows Head Fi-ers nearby (if they opt to share their city location) to facilitate meets more easily -- not to mention more regular smaller meets with folks in your area. And yes, come hear my LCD 2s but also be impressed with the competitive $40 open-modded JVCs! :)

  6. Army-Firedawg
    The map idea is BRILLIANT. That would be awesome and I don't see any issue with users posting their city/ state location 
  7. RastaDolphin
    :) Maybe I'll start a thread, then. Is there a way to tag someone? And does anyone know who to tag as far as admins go?
  8. Army-Firedawg
    .....Um Jude?!! haha. And yes you just put the @ simple then type their head-fi user name. I honestly don't know any admins name off the top of my head.
  9. RastaDolphin
    Actually, I just found a place to send programming suggestions. I'll try that and see what happens.
  10. RastaDolphin
    "Heyyyyyyyyy @jude. Don't make it bad. Take a sad siiiiiite and make it betteeeerrrrrr"

    ooh nice a modded can :D 
    nice man! 
    An yea the map idea is great! an even if it's just us 4 I think we'd have a blast! 
  13. dailydoseofdaly
    I would be interested, especially in Charlotte. 
  14. dailydoseofdaly
    i can bring my stax rig and my portable rig I've been working on. ill keep an eye on the thread and see when/where abouts you guys are thinking of holding it 
  15. Mshenay Contributor
    ooh a stax set up, I'd love to hear it. 
    I think Charloette might be the worthwhile city for us to square up the meet in, I don't think having two meets, on in Willimington an Charlotte is advantages
