South Florida Meet Early 2018

  1. wazzupi
    Hello everyone, welcome to the South Florida meet thread !

    What we currently have lined up is a meet sometime in Jan-Feb(TBD) it is currently looking like a in-home meet with a spacious dining area enough to accommodate 25 people and it will be an all day event. the goal is, we're hoping for a large enough showing so we could have it located in a larger area(meeting room or convention Center) in hopes of gaining a following of vendors for everyone in Florida to have a taste of what a CanJam could be for us floridians and anyone else who would stop by from all around the world !

    We will be reaching out to local stores and possible vendors at this time but we need you, your support if you could post any interest in such an event please post in this thread !

    Interested. I'm in SW Florida around Sarasota. If I come of course I'll bring gear. My last head-fi meet was back in 2011 and I'm curious to hear what's new.
    It seems the last thread got very heated and was closed, but I wanted to echo my sentiments. Also, I'm interested to hear what Tyrion and JP had planned.

    I'm also interested. I'm in the market for new headphones and I've had a very difficult time finding local audio stores that have demo pairs available. I only have lower end gear at this time (Fidelio X2, ATH-M50), but I'm in the market for a higher end pair. I live in Palm Beach County, but I don't mind driving some.

    Glad to hear from you MCPT and Hope to see you at the meet.
    PS Best Buys with Magnolia stores usually have a decent amount of mid-fi headphones unforunately they don't have proper amp/dac setups. I don't know about palm beach but down in miami there are a few stores I haven't been to any of them in a while though.

    More details will be available after the Holidays !!!

    I appreciate the tip. I've checked the Magnolia near me and they only had a couple available. I've also listened to the LCD-X and HD 800S at Audio Advisors in WPB. They were very different from each other. Of the two, I preferred the 800S, but I would have liked it to have more bass/dynamics. I'd like to hear some of the following: Focal Elear (and soon to be Elex), Beyer DT 770/1990/Amiron, Hifiman 400/560, Mr. Speakers AFO, etc...

    I contacted a Focal dealer in Miami and they told me that they don't stock any demo pairs anymore because too many people would use them as an online showroom. There is definitely a need for these meet-ups. I appreciate you putting in the effort to make this happen.

    Enjoy your holidays!

    Hey

    I'm also interested in attending; Any traction on this?

    I'm in a similar boat as MCPT. I own hd800s with a lyr 2 and bifrost but am looking for a warmer heaphone with more bass for certain types of music. Ive been to all the local stores as well. I listened to the lcd 2 and x at advisors today, as well as the hdvd800 and mt50 amp. I much preferred the mcintosh amp to the senn, but the lcd 2 was slightly sub par to the hd800's. I would love to A/B my current stack with the new mc 150 heaphone amp; but like the heaphones, dealers dont really keep good or up to date stock.
    before I buy a 4k solid state amp I would really love to hear an all tube SET amp, like the wa5-le ( and lcd3 or 4)


    Im considering just going up to can jam in ny. Flights are like 110 dollars round trip today.

    I also find it hard to demo a product when the dealer only has a limited selection of music to test with(audioadvisorscoffcoff), any store display should include at least tidal or a record player or a cd player so folks can listen critically to tracks they know well.
