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 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!

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 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.
