Yeah, my modest setup is in my dorm. Laptop > Audiophile USB > SR-60's, KSC75's, or ER6i's via Foobar2k with ASIO. Not bad, but could stand for some upgrades soon. Just PM me or IM me or whatever if you want to drop by.
I would love to host a meet at my house any weekend. I am a full time college student so I am free any weekend. I can host as many people as would want to come. Depending on the number of people we can meet at my house or at my store.
The only problem is i live in Bremerton, WA! So that would require a bit of a drive (or ferry ride) for most of you. Let me know your interest....
After attending the National meet, I'm pumped for something local. C'mon Seattle area Head-Fi'ers - Let's get something going!
I'm willing to drive 'round the water to Pickle's place. I'm also open to starting a meeting somewhere near Seattle. As the weather gets better, we could easily meet at any Eastside park that has power (like Marymoor park). We might be able to make a BBQ afternoon of it as well.
Good job mochi. I, too, was considering a library as well. I have a feeling they might be free.
Renting a place likely would not work. I think people in general just need a place to hang out for free. Now, if I'm wrong, that's cool. I would certainly be willing to puay my fair share for an afternoon of headphone goodness.
EDIT: I just called the Bellevue Library. You can reserve meeting rooms for free. I will stop by tomorrow and see what is available and when.
I just checked the City of Bellevue web site's facility rental page. Among other places the city rents out, a 240 sq ft meeting room (occupancy up to 15) at Crossroads Community Center can be rented for $25 per hour.
If we're talking weekends, Sunday is no good for me but Saturday afternoons (between lunch and dinner, 1pm-4pm?) usually work. I'm a little ticked that I missed the national meet and would love to get together. I should be able to bring most of my stuff with me.
Let's set a date and see who can make it. May 26? I think if we can get at least 4 people, then it should work. If we rent a place, I'm willing to pay more than a single share to make a mini-meet happen.
Great job, team! Smeggy, thanks for the offer as well. I think if the cost is really that affordable, we can all pitch in. I'm willing to put up some bucks myself. I am trying to remember where the room is at Crossroads, but we can get to that later.
For now, I'm in for May 26.
socrates63: let me know how big the room is at the library. If it is larger and free, that might be a great place to start (feel free to pm me as well).
Well if we can agree on a time/date/location we should start advertising in sigs so we can gather a decent group and have a damn good little meet. People around Seattle have been itching for a good meet forever so I'd hate to see this one fizzle and die.
