Yahooooo!

Where:
Radisson Hotel San Jose Airport
1471 North Fourth Street
San Jose, California 95112

When:
Saturday, August 6 2005
10am - ??? (doors open at 9am for setup)

Directions:
From Oakland
From North Bay
From San Francisco
From Santa Cruz
From Modesto
From Bakersfield

The Deal:
- $10 cover charge. The room is free, but this will go towards paying the hotel staff that will be working the event, kind of like when you eat a free meal you still tip the server. Some additional perks may be thrown in later on...

- Please dress appropriately. The Radisson has other stuff going on that day besides our meet, so wear pants, shoes, a shirt...that type of thing. We'd like to a.) encroach on their business model as minimally as possible, and b.) leave a good impression so we're invited back again!

- Food Fajita grill in house for lunch. Dinner is a free for all.

- If Tyll will have us, the Headroom tour will be in the house!!!

- We need some volunteers to help set up/clean up. The major stuff will be taken care of by the hotel staff, but we'll need some people to help set up and move tables around, make sure all our trash is picked up, etc.

- If you're coming from out of town (or even if you're local) and you'd like to stay at the hotel, PM Sleestack, he can hook you up with a discounted room rate.

like I said in a very recent post in the previous thread, I definitely will not be going to this meet. I'll be on the other side of the ocean somewhere in Tokyo, Japan at the time.

Definitely bringing:
K501, CD3K, ER-4S/P
Gilmore Lite V2 (stock PSU), desktop Pimeta, portable Pimeta
iPod 4G, Sony D303
I will probably have AD843's installed in the desktop Pimeta. (Normally I'd listen with 8620/8610, but I suspect the AD843 would be of greater interest at the meet.)

I can also bring any/all of the following if anyone expresses interest:
HD25, HD280 w/Tyson Blu-Tak mod, HD201, A900, AKG K26P
Porta Corda II
Things I'm especially interested in auditioning:
- SA5K, HD650, DT880
- Headroom Micro, Headamp AE-1, Ray Samuels Hornet

Yup...I'm pretty much always interested in good pc audio solutions.

I'll be there...in addition to what's already in the list above I'll bring a Rotel RDP-980 (dac) and my source A/B test setup (a Digital Domain FCN-1, Fidaudio Quintete, and associated cables).

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

We both have one, although Morsel's is better than mine. We'll bring them.
