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

    People who are setting up gear, get there a little early if you can...space 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 ears...you're going to be trying on other people's headphones and others will be wearing yours...it'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!!

    Hi everyone, I've been a lurker for a while but finally registered for this.  I can't give a 100% for sure answer yet but I'm really hoping to attend this.  Only recently got into this stuff and very much looking forward to learning and trying out some new gear.  I lived in Lansdale for a couple of years so I know this area pretty well.  I'll post again when I'm confirmed.  Thank you for hosting -- I'm excited!

    Score! I haven't been to a meet in years. Definitely time to rectify that. Count me in!

    If there is an interest, I can drop off my Rockhopper Beta 22 (3 Channel with Sigma 22 PSU) for loan if someone wants to set up with it. I probably won't be able to attend the whole event but can drop off the "legendary" amp for all to enjoy.
    Let me know, Lee!
