    Potentially changing to a new source, and testing if my solid state amplifier can get up-and-running under meet conditions (it prefers to run 24/7). I will post my setup once these issues are resolved. Setup at the moment:
    • Audeze LCD-2 Classic
    • Chord Qutest
    • Eddie Current Black Widow
    • Eddie Current Super 7
    • Sennheiser HD580
    Updated - just bringing my standard faire.

    Not sure if I can, but will try to drop by.
  5. kendavis
    A of now I expect to bring the following Schiit gear

    Loki, Jotunherm Multibit, Gumby and Lyr 3, Magni 3, Modi 2 Multibit, Eitr, amd maybe one of my Yggys (old analog, stage I'm afraid)

    Maybe not a full-fledged Schiit Storm, but at least a bit of a shower.

    As far as items to audition at the show for sell/trade...

    I'd like to trade or sell My Linear Tube Audio MZ2-S... see first FAQ (https://www.lineartubeaudio.com/faq-1/) for details. The power supply is the Mojo Audio Illuminati Linear Power Supply...I'm afraid I don't know which version (S/N: 17011900). I'd like trade for a Ragnarok or get ~$1500 for both together, but I'll consider any offers as well

    If you might be interested... let me know so I can bring them to the show so that you can listen while you're there...

    I have a few more items as well and I'll post them as I look up the details

    BTW, I may not have original boxes for all items

    Okay... you drive a hard bargain... $1250 for both... but I'll only bring them if I hear from an interested (not committed) party... here or by PM
  8. harrisonjr98
    I will definitely try and make it if I can! I've wanted to compare Eikon and Atticus for a long while. Afraid for the safety of my wallet, however.

    Thinking of bringing either the Elekit 300B (w/ Susvara) or the BHSE (w/ Stax 009). I am still sorting out tubes for the BHSE so we'll see.

    I'll try to make it.

    If I do, I'll have
    Modi MB -> Magni 2 u
    Audeze mobius (if they show up before then)

    If anyone wants to hear a pair of 1more triple driver IEMs, I can bring those.

    I'm hopeful (but not too optimistic) that my DIY electrostatic headphones will be done by then. If they are, I'll have those.

    It's likely I won't be able to make it until around 1:30pm, but I'll be there. I'll see what I can bring. I bought the new $60 Fiio Bluetooth receiver if anyone wants to try that out. I'll certainly bring the amp I've been playing with and HD6XX + HD600M. Some cables.

    I'll see if anyone from LTA wants to participate.

    I may not be able to make it, but if I can I'll have my MCTH in tow, maybe HE400is as well. Probably will have the CTH up for sale to bankroll some other stuff.
  14. harrisonjr98
    I actually pulled out the 400is to listen to them today for the first time in a while, and it turns out they have developed what appears to be a soldering issue I have never noticed causing the left channel to cut out regularly. So I'll probably scratch them from what I'm bringing, and stick to the MCTH and toss the Fulla 2 in my bag as well because why not. :)

    Silverion, my wallet trembles in fear at the news that you're bringing some ZMF stuff. Been wanting to try out some of zach's stuff for a while. I get more and more tempted by that TOTL fit and finish with each passing day. :L3000:
  15. Silverion77
    I can take a look at those 400is if needed. Obviously can't repair there, but I'm local to the meet area so we can check them out.

    As for the ZMFs, will have both of them on hand. Atticus is a very nice Camphor sample (imo) and the Eikon is Barnyard cherry :)
