Greetings!

Looking for a possible meet targeted for sometime after the First Semester Examinations say after 20th of June? Kindly post the following:

1) The earliest date you'll be available and how long you'll be available after this date.
2) Suggested meeting place (including the number of power sockets available!)
3) The gear you can bring! I'll compile a list to avoid people from bringing dublicates.

I'm guessing it to be small and unprofessional so don't go expecting to have catered food! Er... I'm trying to get this meet off the ground but I'm not really overall in charge okay? Not that I'm irresponsible!

UPDATES!!! TIME, DATE AND VENUE ARE NOW CONFIRMED:

Day and Date: Friday 24 June, 2005.

Time: 2pm onwards.

Location: Headphonic, 21 Harrogate St Leederville WA 6007 - (click here to see where.)

If you're able to make it and have not yet posted in this thread, please keep us informed!

2) I can't suggest any place other than Snufkin's place. (www.headphones.com.au) I'll have to PM him...
3) I can supply:

d) Sennheiser HD280
e) Sennheiser HD600 (with Oehlbach cable, I'll also bring the stock cable)

Okay. Snufkin's fine with the meet being at his place. At the rate things are going, I'm going to have to PM everyone in the previous meet thread.

Any headphones in stock will be available for demo as long as they aren't in annoying packaging.
Amp stock is a bit low right now.

Tuesday, 21st June? At Snufkin's place? Time: After lunch at about 2pm?

I've yet to PM the people involved in the last meet. Will do so now. I'll ask for the first two responders to suggest a date and that'll be that.

Sorry to hear that seiko had some problems. I bought a pair of md33's from him and found them to be great. Considering getting better canalphones but these ones seemed so good for the money (I think he charged me 25 bucks AU). I had to mod them, but it was easy and they work great.
I would be in on a meet. the time is a bit dodgy, as I work full time (well, as a teacher). Unless it is during school holidays, then I am sweet.
