I live in the midrange!
It's tentative at this point, but work should be slowed down enough by then that I should be able to make it. I'll list gear later

Gordolindsay and myself are in towners, so it would be a great meet for us to attend. I'll check with him to see what up.

Unfortunately all i can offer to bring is the iPod, C&C Box and Superfi 3's and 5's, Koss 75's. The pod w/ the superfi 3's and C&C box are my bulldozing rig, so it will look pretty rough...but it's a charming, used kind of rough!

Thanks for organizing....and for insuring me!

Ok, I'm in. It's been a while since the last MI meet and it'd be nice to catch up with everyone again.

My only gear right now consists of:

Shure E4
Koss KSC-75
and
iPod Classic


It'll be nice to listen to some real headphones and gear again!!

I'll come if I don't have too much work that weekend.

I've never been to a meet either.

Equipment list:
Keces 151 DA Converter
Little Dot Mk3 Amp
GoVibe Magnum Headphone Amp/DAC
AKG K701
Alessandro MS-2
Sony A729
Shure SE530

I'll bring my laptop too, since almost all my equipment runs of a USB source. I do not own a CD player.

I can bring an OLD Denon cd player if we need an extra source for amps or whatever. It doesn't even have digital outs for DAC's though.
