    For those who have asked how this while thing works...

    People who are setting up gear, get there a little early if you if first come first choose, so the best spots go quickly.

    BRING EXTRA POWER STRIPS AND EXTENTION CORDS. You can never have too many and someone will forget one and be in need of borrowing.

    Don't sprawl out all over the tabe...keep it tight...lots of people need to set up.

    Bring a source! iPod, computer, CD Player, turntable, whatever.

    Label your gear! Lots of people may have the same cans or amps.

    It's nice to make up a paper listing exactly what you're showing so others don't have to ask and you'll have more freedom to wander.

    While I've never been to a meet where something was stolen, I'd rather not have my meet be the first. So be aware of your setup or ask the person next to you to keep an eye on it when you go listening or to the bathroom.

    Did I mention to bring extra power strips?

    Those of you who are coming to listen...

    We're thrilled to have you! The head-Fi community is exceptionally welcoming and willing to share. We love showing off our gear and the sound we have achieved.

    We do ask that you be courteous:

    -NEVER unplug headphones with the volume up or the source playing.

    -many of the top headphones are open back...that means we all hear your conversations while we're listening. Remember to use your 'inside voices'

    -Take a shower that morning and wash your're going to be trying on other people's headphones and others will be wearing's just commen sense and courtesy.

    -bring your favorite music on your portable audio player...but please ASK the owner of the rig to which you would like to jack in to help you make the connection rather than just unplugging their current source without asking.

    Then just have fun and enjoy the company and the sound!!

    Very cool to see the list begin to fill in! Looking forward to a great event!

    I will attend, just not sure what will be on the gear list that far out, thanks for organizing this I loved the last one and the space is fantastic! 
  11. kazsud
    Bring the 2A3!!

    Man oh man, as much as I'd love to hear the Prime (and weep afterward at my inability to buy one), I a little more more curious about the VPI Player. Any chance Mat might loan you one for demoing at the meet (or just show up himself)? The Head-Fi crew is certainly the right target for it, after all. Assuming anyone would find it useful, I could bring an audio interface, do some recordings between whatever decks you brought, and allow people better A/B comparison between them. I'd be too nervous to bring my turntable to such an event, but my Denons, various iBasso DAC/amps, and even my Nova Phonomena phono preamp would be easy enough to bring over if there's any interest at all.
