Hi Folks,

First DC area meet was small but a lot of fun. Let's try to do it again. There are new headphones, new amps, new interconnects, and lots of things to hear. In addition to my amps and headphones (see my profile), I've also got a Maxed Out Home loaner from Headroom. It's due back before then, but I'll check to see if I can keep it here for the meet. And if not...there's a strong possibility that there will be a Max here instead.

It's slightly short notice, but Sat Aug 24 should be a good date for me. Start at one pm, and go until we're done.

If interested, please reply to this thread, or use the email link in my profile. I prefer not to use PM for this, as it creates too many places to check to stay organized.

Directions will be e-mailed to those coming (I prefer not to post directions to my home on the net)

There are four of us so far, so this is a definite go!

Ha, I'm getting back into DC on the 25th.
Oh well.

How many DC-area Head-Fiers are there, Hirsch?

If you should turn up early, you're welcome to join us.

I'm not entirely sure. There were five of us at the last meet, but a lot depends on who decides to attend. There were a good many more Headfiers present at the Headroom World of Headphones Tour, and I'm hoping some of those decide to attend as well.

5 hours in a regular car, or 5 hours in your wrx?


You know you want to come. In addition to Hirsch, me and the spec v will be there.

I've received a suggestion to change the date from the 24th to the 31st. Any feedback?

The only feedback I got on the date change was negative, so the 24th it is. 1 pm, my place, Rockville, MD. I'll email directions out about a week ahead of time to everyone who's coming.

For those unable to make it this time, I'd like to do this on a regular basis, if people want to.

So far there are four of us, but there are a number of people in the area who haven't responded one way or another.

I do have too many headphones. I forgot to put the Etymotic ER-4S on the list


Also, I've been working on my turntables, and will have analog as well as digital sources set up (The Ariston IS working, but with a Grace instead of the Grado arm). There will be lots to hear...

Hirsch,
I'm seriously considering making this 4 hour trip for this get together. I'd be bringing my Ety 4S's as well as a Sugden Headmaster. Could you please PM me with your exact address so I can input it into Mapquest in order to see exactly how far this endeavor will be. Thanks.

^^^^no distance is so great that it wouldn't be worth it in order for me to hear the headmaster


that's how I see it anyway, though you may see it differently from your perspective


btw, mapquest gives me 3 hours, 41 minutes from nazareth pa to rockville md, and in my experience mapquest always overestimates the time it takes.









of course, maybe I just drive like an ass.

Just got confirmation from Headroom.

We will have both a Maxed Out Home, and a Max with stepped attenuators at the meet. How close does MOH come to the Max? How do the Headroom amps compare to the SHA-1, ZOTL, RKV, and many others?
Come and find out!

I'll be sending out directions this weekend, so if you'd like to come but have not posted to this thread or notified me, please get in touch with me soon!
