What do you all think about aiming for September 2021 for an in-person meet? That's the earliest I'd feel comfortable doing it. I really enjoyed the meet at Gramophone in Gaithersburg. Maybe we could work with them to have another meet there?

Did people bring their own gear to Gramophone?

Yes. I wasn’t the organizer of the event, so I’m not sure if Gramophone provided any equipment themselves or just the space in their office area that we used.

I gave Gramophone (Gaithersburg) a call and inquired about a meet there in September/October. Will report back here when I hear something.

Gramophone did provide some equipment, on one of the first tables nearer the entry to the room (spare space). Though most of the equipment was from local enthusiasts bringing their own gear. I heard they made a few sales, so were quite happy with the turnout/results. However, I also heard later that the space might have been repurposed shortly after that meet.

Wish you luck @dcguy73, and would like to get back to events!

Is Urban Hi-Fi a potential location? I met a bunch of you there a while back and it's a great place.

Hey, this is Nicholas from LTA / Urban Hifi. Our workshop is an option, but it is a bit small. The last two local meetups I attended, which were fantastic, would have exceeded our space by two or three times.

So, push comes to shove, LTA can host, but a larger space would be better if available.

Count us in for attending and bringing gear and headphones whenever the next meetup happens - wherever it happens...
