    We will be having a local meetup at Blink HighEnd in Cambridge at 1:30 on saturday 11-11. Blink will be hosting us in their new studio on the 4th floor. Parking may be an issue but I think we are in for a treat. We are currently tracking about 14 people to attend. Please let me know if you can attend, it is a secure building so we will need to have our names with security. Hope to see you there, Lou.

    I wanted to thank everyone who came out. I think we had a great showing and great hosts. It was my first meetup and I was not disappointed. It was great meeting everyone. It was a unique experience getting to try so many different headphones and gear in one place. A few pics that I managed to snap in between using my phone for a controller.

    Thanks for organizing this event, and also big thanks to the host in letting us use his place for the meet.

    I wish we can do this more often. I love hearing other people's setups as hearing many setups/discoveries by others helps in getting an idea of how various headphones perform under different setups.

    Lots of great headphones, and impressive setups. Thanks for bringing your gears for us to listen to guys!
