    Hello my fellow audio enthusiasts! It's that time of year again!! Carolina CanFest 6, and this year is shaping to be amazing. But we can still always grow bigger and better. So if you would be so kind, please share this on your social media. The event is FREE, there's FREE lunch (courtesy of Schiit), and this may just be my thoughts, but there's some pretty awesome people to meet and greet. Everyone's welcome and we'd certainly love to have you!!!!!!

    I'm also going to be trying my best to see if I can get a couple vendors/reps./MOT's to attend and will GLADLY accept any help from you in reaching out. During Carolina CanFest 5, we had two very nice gentlemen who represented Bryston Audio and Master Dynamic and the other representing iFi respectably. It was an incredible experience both talking with them and learning about their products.

    FEB 17

    Concord Fire Department, Fire Station 7, Community Room
    250 International Drive NW
    Concord, NC 28027

    (Right off of Kannapolis/George Lyle's Parkway off I-85 Exit 54)


    For lunch, there's a couple restaurants nearby but courtesy of Schiit, we will be having delicious catered food.

    Those wishing to attend!!!
    Please RSVP here if you are coming, and with what gear (if any) you’d like to bring. Please feel free to invite your friends and family!
    • If you're unable to bring any gear, 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!!!
    • NO SPEAKERS!!!!!!! (as in like bluetooth etc...)

    *Vendors, M.O.T. etc...
    IF you are a manufacture, representative, or member of the trade and would like to have your products featured at this meet, please contact me via PM for details, specifications, and 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.​

    Some quick guidelines because this is an active firestation (and MINE)
    -If you are wanting a tour of the station, fire apparatus, etc... please get with me so that I can notify on duty staff.​
    -Please show respect to all on duty personnel and listen to any instruction given.

    Prices, Customs & Courtesies:
    • The cost to attend this meet is FREE!! But any donations would be very appreciated.​
    • 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 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 to not damage quite sensitive material,​
      • i.e. turn the volume knob down before and after use, while not blasting it out while you're listening.​
    • Be mindful of those around you. Keep voices low when talking, wait your turn and please don't be selfish with equipment.​
    • Please remember to bring an extension cord and extra outlets There's a fair amount of outlets but you may have to share wall outlets.​
    • Lastly, PLEASE, bring source material. I.e. Laptops DAP's etc... I foresee this making things quite difficult especially 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, ads. 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.

    If you're unfortunately unable to attend, please at least share this post on your social media, etc... so that we can have as great a turnout as possible

    I'd like to attend this one as well! No idea on availability, I have blackout at work from Nov 10-December 30

    Though I'm off on the 29th so there's a possibility

    Otherwise it'd be the first week of January possibly
  6. Army-Firedawg

    THAT'S AWESOME!!! I'd love to be able to talk with ya again! And no worries, dates are still up in the air and'll be more focused the closer the dates get and more people we get. Any idea on what gear you'll be bringing this time around?
  7. 16hz lover
    Count me in, only have my trusty 23 year old Beyer DT-990 Pro headphones to bring.
  8. Army-Firedawg
    What's up man!!! Glad to he able to chat with you again as well! I'm on shift today so I'll add you to the list when I get home tomorrow. Any dates work best for you? Or are you pretty open on those dates?

    Edit: I like how you're STILL a "new head-fier" despite being here for over 12 years XD

    I might be able to come late-October/early-November, perhaps. I would bring some Beezar and ECP Audio equipment.
  10. Army-Firedawg
    WELCOME! That'd be awesome we'd love to have you. Are those your only available dates? Anything early next year if possible?

    Also, I won't be near a computer for a little over a week but I'll add you tobthe list as soon as I'm able.
  11. tomb
    Of course - anything later would be fine, too, as long as it didn't conflict with the holidays.

    Most anytime is good for me. Being disabled has a few advantages, not working is the big one, just never been able to get over the guilt part, as I was a very productive person, for many years. Hey, can we get the gentleman that has the Stax-009 phones to come? I need to spend some demo time with them, along with Jason's Focal Utopia phones. I'll never afford them on Disability income, but it's still fun to experience them.
    Let me know if there is any way I can help out with organizing things.

    I don't know why I haven't been active on here. Another Honda VFR forum I have 4,300 posts, 7400 on one of the pipe smoking forums, I just need to put this place on my main page, so when I first open up my home page, I don't forget it.
