Got a few confirmations:
LTA will bring the Z10e, which is the EL84-based amplifier with higher power headphone outputs than the MZ2 and an electrostatic headphone output. We'll have the same estats as at CAF: Stax SR-009S + L700, MrSpeakers . . . Dan Clark Audio Voce.
LTA will also have the microZOTL Preamplifier, which is basically a super upgraded MZ2.

Both amps are single-ended output, but both offer balanced inputs. The Z10e has one balanced input utilizing a tube-based balanced>single-ended converter and the microZOTL Preamp has one balanced input with a Lundahl input transformer as a balanced>single-ended converter.

Regular headphones will be:
ZMF Auteur + Eikon
Focal Stellia + Utopia
Klipsch HP-3
Meze Empyrean

Maybe some others. Let me know if you want to hear any of these (or if you want to buy any of them): Meze Classics, Audeze LCD-3, Fostex TH-900 Mk.II, MrSpeakers Ether Flow (not Ether 2), MrSpeakers Aeon closed (not Aeon 2).

I think it's okay to send duplicate items so we can audition them all while using different cans-dac-amp combination without needing to tranfer cans from amp to amp . Just thinking about that.

I am hoping to attend. While I have a bunch of equipment moved into my corporate apt I could bring a solid hotspot for internet, a roon server with music, a beyer T5P 2nd gen hp, focal utopia's if folks want, an auralic stack 1st gen (taurus, vega, altair), a mobile solution with the 1st gen a&k Kann and tia fourte's (I can bring some tips if folks want to try them). Its been awhile, hope everyone is well.

Tim from Kitsune has generously let us hang onto the Holo Audio Spring 2 KTE for the meet. That also means that we'll have it in the shop until then, so anyone interested can also come by in the next few weeks to listen to the DAC with any gear they'd like to bring. We'll be sure to bring an extra DAC to the meet in case someone wants to borrow the Spring 2 to use with their own stuff.
