All

I'm helping Ari and Ken with this meet. It will be my first meet, but I've been to CAF many times.

I will be bringing the tubes from the Schiitr Tube Shootout for you all to listen to in a Lyr 3. @Paladin79 is sending them to me for our meet.

If you see something I have in my signature block you'd like me to bring let me know. It is not completely updated.

I've also cross pollinated this thread on the Schiit Happened Thread.

Hey all, glad to see the excitement from everyone! I'm definitely looking forward to the meet and finishing up some last logistics as the date approaches. Couple of us are finishing some outreach to a couple manufacturers for some gear and we'll update as it comes in! E.g. Schiit will be sending us some of their gear (mostly things we don't already have ourselves).

I would like to come and can bring a whole bunch of stuff
Happy to have you as usual!

Not sure if I want to lug the Vinyl and phono gear in, we will see.

Anyone know how stable is the WiFi network is at the venue or if there is WiFi at all? Want to use my setup with roon and tidal streaming.

WiFi shouldn't be an issue, 300 down Cox cable internet which should be enough to stream music for the event and Cisco access points only a few years old that should be able to take a good number of connections. I also have powers to troubleshoot the network if we have issues. Even with that, having a USB drive with a few of your favorite songs is never a bad idea.

We will post the wifi info on the white board. Long as everyone is sensible with internet usage we should be fine for everyone to use things like normal web browsing, roon, tidal, qobuz etc. just don't torrent or update your steam library at the event and everyone should have a good time.

Unfortunate update: we had to send away the Stax and Focal headphones. The perils of borrowed equipment. Hopefully the headphones will still be present at the meet in others' collections.
