There will be a head-fi meet at Music To My Ear on August 4th. @MTMECraig can be messaged for more details about the shop.

The last meet here was a blast with a great deal of interesting gear to try. Returning will be the ZMF Dynamics provided by Zach and local owners to try out. I'll be reaching out to a couple others and will update if any more want to send some gear.

Rules per last meet post my @MTMECraig
"Can Head-Fi'ers bring our own stuff?
Yes!
Music To My Ear has several full setups, some songs on CD, LPs, and Craig & Evshrug will make an "Evaluation Playlist" of songs. So, you don't NEED to bring anything to get a great feel for the differences in gear, but you're welcome to bring your own gear. A couple of things to point out:
* You can bring in your own equipment but you have to a 100% playable rig. Need to have all interconnects ect. He will provide the power only.
* This way, we don't spend forever swapping cables
* You can bring your own CDs, Mac computer sources, or optical output sources.
* No food or drink allowed inside near all the expensive stuff, but there is a Sheetz next door!
* Mark at Music To My Ear is letting us use the first floor (with a Long table and 6-8 chairs), but he will let us use some of the upstairs space if needed."​

Link to previous meet thread: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/pittsburgh-headphile-meet.821324/

The Gear that I'll be bringing is:
-Dragon Inspire IHA-1
-Audio-GD NFB1.28
-ZMF Eikon

Since I'm helping arrange this, I'll be advertising on a few major audiophile boards, primarily here of course. If you are sure you can come please drop me a PM. Also please post what gear you're planning to bring.

Thanks!

I'm getting excited for this meet now that its getting closer!

I am going to talk to the misses to see if I can haul our old kitchen table to bring to the meet lol. I feel like the more table space the better.

I'm still getting over a cold and have a decent bit of congestion, hoping it clears up by Friday so I can come.

Sangaku is out of commission with what looks like a damaged pot, don't think it'll make it to this meet unfortunately.

I’ll be there with my iSine. Audeze is shipping me a replacement Mobius just in case mine was defective while they test it and it should be here in time.

@Audeze have also asked me to bring a demo of their newest LCD model to the meet so I think we’re in for a treat! I guess it’s not efficient, so it’ll have to be hooked up to an amp at the store since I don’t have a desktop rig of my own to bring.

So:
ISine with iPad
Mobius with MacBook
LCD-New-Hotness
