    Please join us on November 18th, 2018 for The WickedSchiit Meet - New England. This event will give New England Head-Fiers a chance to network, show off their gear and try out some other schiit they haven't heard before. You may even leave with some free gear!

    Raffle:
    Each attendee will receive one ticket (no cost) for a drawing that will take place towards the end of the event. Right now I have a Schiit Lyr 3 w/DAC (4490/DS) and some Audeze t-shirts to raffle off.

    10:00am to 5:00pm

    Location:
    DoubleTree Hotel
    5400 Computer Drive
    Westborough, MA 01581

    Highlights:
    Schiit Audio
    is not only generously sponsoring this event but they are also sending us most of their current product line for us to check out. As an added bonus, they are sending a Lyr 3 w/DAC (4490/DS) for us to raffle off.

    Audeze will be sending most of their current line up. If there is an Audeze headphone that you have wanted to check out now is your chance. They are sending some t-shirts for me to raffle off as well.

    Empire Ears is sending us the Phantom universal and the Legend X universal. If you have wanted to try these before you buy them this is your chance. Bring your own tips/DAP/source. They are the standard size. If you have questions let me know. Please see me during the meet or let me know ahead of time if you want to try them.

    Other Notes:
    - The venue does not allow outside food or drinks but there will be catering provided.
    - There is plenty of parking around the venue.
    - Please remember to respect each other's gear. Ask before unplugging anything!
    - It's a good idea to mark you gear. I use blue painters tape with my screen name when I attend meets.

    Hey liked the Oct. date better, but beggars can't be choosers.

    My plan is to bring -
    Senn HD800S
    ZMF Atticus
    AKG 7XX
    ...and maybe something else

    ...my ES9023 based DIY All-In-One Streamer-DAC-AMP based off a Beagle Bone Black (Volumio), ACKO S03 re-clocker, ACKO ES9023 DAC, and "The Wire" amp.
    ...and my 6DJ8 based output transformer coupled amp. http://diyaudioprojects.com/Tubes/6DJ8-Tube-Headphone-Amp/

    Can't wait for the fun!

    Great! Let me know if you can't make it. I added you and your gear to the list.

    I managed to snag an amazing deal and traded my hd650 +$400 for a HD800 S. So I'll be bringing that instead of hd650.

    Sounds interesting. I don't have very interesting cans, but, my electronics might be useful.

    Sounds good! You'll have a chance to try out some new stuff. There will be a bunch of good headphones there.

    I assume it's mixed equipment, like DAP's and amps (input from CD, Comp) sort of anchoring, with phones moving around in some cases and staying in others. Please set that straight if I'm wrong.

    I could bring my Rag & Gumby along with a junk Sony CD changer. I don't have the update Gen 5 on the Gumby yet, so USB might not work so well.

    My HE-500 modded probably are interesting enough to bring, and

    I didn't see a MD X00 Mahogany on the list yet (but I may sell mine before hand).

    Might bring my modded Fostex FH-500RP which I didn't see listed either.

    Suppose I could bring the HFM 4XX modded too.


    Can't wait to hear a HE-6.
