    Come join the Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia headphone enthusiasts for an awesome meet hosted by Gramophone in Gaithersburg. We're looking forward to showcase some fantastic local gear to kick off Spring. Not to mention you can go check out the Gramophone showroom!

    8513 Grovemont Circle
    Gaithersburg, MD 20877

    Technically using the meeting/office space to the left of the store. We'll be sure to point people in the right direction.

    Saturday, April 7th
    10:30AM - 5PM

    Feel free to show up when able! People will be there starting as early as 10 to start setting up.

    Let us know if you will be attending and what you will bring! Nevertheless, always feel free to come as you are and try what there is to offer! We're always happy to meet new enthusiasts!
    As always, power strips and extension cords are more than welcome (load up the car!) and we'll be looking for some additional folding tables and chairs if you can spare.

    Will be here, undecided on what I will bring, but likely just my dac1541 and an eikon

    gandhisfist, if you'll be bringing them, will be looking forward to hearing the prototypes again(closed version), as well as maybe he6/k1000?
    You haven't brought those to any meets in a while?

    I'm also undecided on what exactly I'm bringing. I know I'm gonna at least bring a bunch of my stax headphones.
    Since if @willsw shows up, I do wanna compare them to the voce again.

    If anyone is interested in hearing a bunch of other stuff, like some audio technica woodies, I can bring some of those as well.

    I can bring chairs too @Silverion77, if these will help?
    I have potentially three amplifiers inbound to me between now and the time of the meet. So I too will need to update my post, when I know what I'll have:
    • Eddie Current Balancing Act
    • MassDrop Liquid Carbon X
    • MassDrop MCTH
    • Metrum Acoustics Onyx
    • Schiit Lyr 3
    See you there!

    I'm looking forward to this! It will be my first DC-area HeadFi meet.

    I will bring:
    • RME ADI-2 Pro
    • Euphony Audio PTS music server (if there is WiFi available at Gramophone)
    • Beyerdynamic Amiron Home

    What are the five songs mentioned in #9 above?
  8. Silverion77
    Good catch. It seems to have been lost over the years of copy and pasting :laughing:
    Also, let me check with the wifi, but I'm pretty sure we'll have it.

    Certainly will be helpful if we get some additional tables. There are 2 additional office rooms that we can fill with 2 tables & a set of chairs (plus chairs in the main room).

    I'll see if I can, the dac1541 can't drive them and I'm unsure of whether I want to bring my larger setup or not.
  12. SuperDuke
    I will likely bring the Susvara and an amp that can drive it (maybe a 300B).

    I have been surprised and pleased by how good the entry level amplifiers are from Schiit. Yet I remain optimistic and curious how the products from MassDrop will fare against these.
    I updated my post with what I plan to bring, assuming the delivery schedules are on target.
  14. Medicake
    I'll be there, right now I'm thinking I'll just bring HE-6 and my Ragnarok
