Since no one else has volunteered for the Texas stop of the tour, I'm going to do so. If it's between missing it all together or hosting it myself, I'd rather not miss out.

The room I have booked is at my apartment complex. The details are as follows.

Wednesday, June 8th
La Mirage Resort
10925 Briar Forest
Houston TX, 77042 [size=large]MAP! [/size] ***The apartment complex is on the left, just before the third traffic signal.***

There's plenty of room and there should be enough outlets. Tables and chairs will be available, couches and even a billiards table. I'll provide some food and drink, even if it's just pizza and soda junk food type stuff. I still have to buy new gear, though, so don't expect too much.

My e-mail is in my profile or you can send me a PM if you have any questions. Be sure to let me know if you are planning to attend and what gear you're going to bring.

So far, it's just me and my Grado SR-80's, ER-4P's and my iPod. I also have a computer I can set up, if there's a need. Woo, party.


Update:

The attendees are:
Myself
Trea
ReDVsion
earache

Hi Guys. Sorry some of you won't be able to make it. Thanks loads, hardbop, for finding a place for the meet. Don't worry about having lots of people. If it's a mini-meet it just means more time to listen for us. I've updated my main post. Looking forward to meeting ... <lame texan accent>y'all!</lame texan accent>

Great! The more the merrier.


I've decided to make a few Tex-Mex dishes for us to enjoy and so we don't have to worry about being hungry throughout the evening.


I'll have my part set up by 5pm and I should have the entire evening and night free. I don't plan on kicking anyone out until every last piece of hardware has been listened to.



There's only a week-and-a-half until the meeting, not much time left for the rest of you to remain undecided. PM me and/or post here if you plan on attending or even if you are going to try and make it. Heck, post here if you can't make it. I can also answer any questions you have and I'll distribute my phone number as needed.

I'd really like to go (and I may make it yet), but it's gonna be a 2.5 hour drive to get to Houston, not to mention the time in traffic inside Houston... then I'll have to drive back (or beg a friend for a place to stay)...

If only it were on a weekend. But that's the way it goes, I guess. Good luck to everyone there. =)

I think it would have been better to have it on a weekend. I have to work on wednesday. I am willing to take a day off if a couple of Austin Headfiers decide to go together. That would make it quicker and more fun during the drive

I will be there and am bringing my Sony R-10s and Senn 650s and some discs. I might bring another amp for comparison, if it wont offend.

I might be able to bring a CD/SACD source, or do we already have one?
