    I'm going to try and make this one. If I can get there,  I can bring a some oldies but goodies:
    Sennheiser HE-90
    Sony R-10
    AKG K-1000
    Stax Omega 2 Mk.1 
    Denon D-7000
    Somebody is already bring a Focal Utopia, so I won't (but can if need be).
    If I can find it, I can bring a Jecklin Float also.  If that happens, anyone who tries it has to agree to be photographed wearing it.

    Just saw this.  I have relatives coming into town this weekend, so I'm not sure if I can make it or if I could bring anything if I am able to stop by.  I don't have anything too exotic and most of my gear looks like it will already be represented though.
    I've been making do with the Sony MDR-CD1700, the MDR-R10 is legendary!

    I will be there if I can make it, only no earlier than 3pm.

  12. bharris
    Wow, I just saw this. I hope I can make it. I only have a small portable kit with me at the moment but...
    If I can make it, I can bring my:
    Cascadia Audio Talos
    and my
    ALO National 
    Really looking forward to hearing/seeing the Jotunheim, Mojo, Ether C's, Primes, Stax and more and more!
    @h2rulz I'm not 100% that I'll make it but if I can I'd be interested to see your Crack build 
  13. h2rulz
    Sure, I'll definitely bring it if I can make it.

    I will be there (i'm pretty sure) with some stuff:
          T70's (250 ohm) w/ pleather earpads (@sorrick might be interested in trying the pads on his)
          HD 480 II
          DIY OTL amp (I'm pretty sure I've figured out what's causing the hum, but still need to fix it: the 14f7 input tube is VERY sensitive to AC in the heaters, so it'll be heated with batteries or a 12v wall wart)
          Schiit magni 2 uber
    as far as DAC's are concerned, I'm not sure what i'm doing yet because I have no DAPs or USB DAC's, plus I don't have a laptop to use as a source. I might use a blu-ray player or a raspberry pi w/ a pidac module running volumio 
    Edit: DC heater didn't fix it. [​IMG] Next on the list of potential causes is my PSU resistors, whish are cheap-@$$ inductive wirewounds (not non-inductive) They are probably picking up stray EMI from the massive toriodial trafo. At least, that fits the measurements. Unfortunately, fixing that means buying new resistors, and they won't be here until Monday or Tuesday. I'm still hoping to find a ground loop, though.
  15. h2rulz
    Although I'll probably be there late if I do make it, I am very interested in the NFB1.
    And is it safe to assume that @gandhisfist (btw, thanks for organizing the meet!) will be bringing the NFB27h?
