Cool--I'd love to compare the Ragnarok to your KSA-5 clone and the BH Crack to your modded WA3.
 
My list for the meet--
 
LCD-X, HD650
Ragnarok, Vali, Crack+Speedball
Gungnir or Yggdrasil (gonna try to have one for the meet)

Yes, very cool! I've got a pass-through on the WA3 so we can run the BH and it on the same source easily. :)

I'll have a Uberfrost/Valhalla 2, LD I+ and Modi and either my HD650 or T1.
 
It sounds like there will be some fantastic gear. I'm looking forward to the Ragnarok/Yggdrasil, BH Crack, Gungnir, and HD700, as well as hearing an LCD X again. That might be my favorite of any headphone I've ever heard, but it's unfortunately out of my price range right ow.
 
Anyone have a PS1000? That's only headphone I really really want to try and haven't had a chance to yet.

That would be a great comparison.  I really want to hear the Speedball Crack.

I would love to hear the T1 that's one of the few headphones I have never heard.

I'll bring my SR200s, HD650s, and maybe some T50RPs.
Couple of USB DACs...  iFi iDSD Nano and Audioengine D1
Those little DAC/amps do "okay" depending on the headphone and source material, but I'm still in need of a proper headphone amp for the HD650s. I've pretty much been waiting to hear the Crack before I make any purchase decisions, so I'm looking forward to that.
In addition to the laptop I'll bring a tweaked CD player or two.

I definitely want to hear the Crack+Speedball and WA3. I have been listening to HD650 on Schiit Fulla and Schiit Valhalla.
This will be my first meet, so I definitely want to walk around and see more than I would want to "be seen". However here are some of the other things I could bring:
 
  1. Pure i-20
  2. PeachTree DAC-iTx
  3. Meridian Explorer
  4. AudioQuest Dragonfly ver 1.2
 
I'm not sure how people feel about regular CD source. I do not feel comfortable dismantling my main source, but I could bring Marantz SA-8260 or Toshiba SD9200.
