    It's more important that we've found each other again.

    This is awesome, I'll definitely be there. How do these things work? Should I bring all my gear in a backpack (just in case?) I'd love to hear some Focal cans.

    We will be there with a ton of great gear to keep everyone listening! Glad to see some familiar faces will be there!

    I'll be there but I'll be concentrating on speakers
  14. ribosradagast
    I'll be there, though I regret to say that I don't see Focal anywhere on the vendor list
  15. Billheiser
    True, but I bet the odds are good that some vendors (of amps, DAC's, etc.) will have Focals there. And likely that members of this DC Head-Fi group will have some too.
