    That's perfectly fine! So long as you come with a cool attitude and can put up with us weirdos we're happy to have you.

    For this meet (if I can), I'll be bringing the same gear as last time:
    - MrSpeakers Mad Dogs v3.2
    - Hifiman HE-400i (w/ Cotton Mod)
    - Garage1217 Project Sunrise II
    - Schiit Modi

    Only this time, I'll be bringing my pair of Taction Kannons.
    And I'll also be bringing a 6SN7 tube.
    From what I've seen of this list of gear, it looks like comparisons between one of ZMF's old headphones (Ori) and two of their new headphones (Eikon and/or Atticus) will be interesting...

    BTW - if anyone has Senn HD650's and a non-stock cable that I can try - I'd be grateful for the opportunity to A/B during the meet.

    Good to see your attending this year as well and I'm happy your running 6sn7s now too ^^ If you'd like I'll bring some for you to try with your amp as I have quite a few spares. I'm also curious to hear the Taction my self!

    I'll throw out a budget challenge for the meet. Let see what $500 will get you. My entry:

    SMSL M8 DAC - $85
    Millett Starving Student Amp - $75
    GE 6829 Tubes - $15 a pair
    Fostex t50rp Modded - $200 with Shure Alcantara pads or Senheisser HD700 with Modhouse mods - $275

    I think this system might just compete favorably against some of the non-budget rigs and I certainly think for those new to audio that we live in a perfect time to get really good stuff without spending a fortune to get it.

    Ugggh, Ok @Wiljen I'll bite. I need to barrow on of those DT 880 250 ohms though

    Then it's

    EL Dac $250
    Schiit Vali Gen 1 $70
    DT 880 $180

    ;3 you guys will have to forgive the super cheap second hand pricing on the Vali 1, as you can only get it second hand these days!!
  7. Wiljen
    No forgiving necessary - my list was all what I paid for it most of which I bought from the classifieds here.
  8. Wiljen
    Got the confirmation from @George-gearbest on the door prizes. We will have a Kz Zs5, Zs6, and Zsr in ears and a pair of Superlux HD660s and HD668b as door prizes. A big thanks to Gearbest for providing these for us.

    Another question / request

    1) (previous) - anyone have a aftermarket HD650 cable they can bring for me to try?
    2) current - does anyone have a iFi Micro iDSD USB DAC and Headphone AMP that they can bring?
  10. Army-Firedawg
    That's awesome!!! Please tell them I said thank you so much!!

    @Afghan Vet I can't answer one but I'll have the Nano iDSD BL (not a micro I know) and an iCAN PRO coming

    So, I just found out I won an Audeze contest for the new MX4!!! Which is beyond amazing! That said, I'll be bringing it to CANFEST!

    Wow! I definitely want to get a listen to that one. I have yet to even see one let alone hear one.

    Well that's awesome man lol! Where were they running the contest?

    I'll also have one there too :3 so there will be two of them floating around I will likely hook up one of my Cables to one I bring so we know which is which! I'll have the Clear as well! But no confirmation on the Auteur... fingers crossed though

    No promises, but I might have a set of Sony Qualia Q010 from my family if I can get them down here from DC quickly enough. Stay tuned.

    Nice catch with the mx4. How did you enter?
