    Very nice kit list Martin, you're most welcome to attend!
     
    Have you inserted a valve into your MacBook Pro?!? [​IMG] Or have you modified your Isabellina HPA?
     
    Cheers,

    Guys,
     
    As the meet is next Saturday (hasn't the last 6 months flown by?) there are a few things to remember.
     
    1. ALL relevant meet information is in thread post 1 - this includes hall address, meet times, bus routes, nearest accommodation etc.
    2. Sat Nav users it's crucial to input the 171 part of the address, otherwise you'll end up over a mile away as The Spinney is a long road! Also, the hall is at the end of a residential close so you are going in the right direction when it looks like you've entered a cul-de-sac. 
    3. Please write your first name (and head-fi username if you have one) on the badges provided at the hall entrance and attach the sticker to your chest. 
    4. There will be beverages/biscuits and mugshots (noodle thingy) available in the hall to purchase. Bar Hill Tesco is just around the corner to buy sandwiches.
    5. Please thank the retailers present for sponsoring the event and ensuring that it's FREE to enter.
    6. Don't just turn up with loads of gear and feel miffed when there's no table space left - as I've asked repeatedly throughout the thread to be notified of what equipment attendees are bringing beforehand.
    7. PLEASE RESPECT OTHER PEOPLES EQUIPMENT AND DON'T ASSUME THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTOMATIC RIGHT TO PICK UP OR LISTEN TO ANYTHING WITHOUT ASKING PERMISSION FIRST!
    8. Do bring your own favourite music on CD, DAP or USB stick as you know it well and how it sounds on your gear, so it'll be easy to make comparative assessments of other kit.
    9. Please ensure that you have clean non-gelled hair if you expect to listen to headphones.
    10. Bring plenty of £2 coins to buy raffle tickets! 
    11. Inevitably some gear listed in thread post 1 won't be present, as people become unwell, have unexpected things to deal with and understandably can't turn up to the meet. So please don't whinge if you've traveled miles to demo kit that isn't present, as I try to keep the equipment list current.
    12. [​IMG] AND HAVE FUN!

    Cheers,
     
    Andy.

    And make sure if you are using a USB stick that it's virus scanned by a decent scanner as there are some viruses that infest the host computer upon auto-running!

    Meet Charity
     
    Guys,
     
    I think that it's worth reiterating that this meet is not-for-profit with all surplus monies (after costs have been deducted) being donated to Cambridgeshire Deaf Association - http://www.cambsdeaf.org/
     
    This means that 100% of raffle ticket monies, any surplus from beverage sales and all door donations will be given to the CDA. We decided to support the CDA as they are local to the meet venue and do sterling work supporting hearing impaired people. As an `audiophile' I can't imagine losing my hearing, so it seemed fitting to support a small charity that helps people cope with the trauma of hearing loss. 
     
    Cheers,
     
    Andy. 
     
  8. Toxic Cables
    A week left, everyone must be excited.
     
  9. Mattyhew
    Quick question, How easy is it to get from where all the buses go (Stop E4 specifically) to the Train station in cambridge? 
     
    Cheers :)
     
  10. smial1966
    Mattyhew,
     
    Sorry but I have no idea as I live 50 miles away from Cambridge. Suggest that you phone the bus company and ask them.
     
    Cheers,
     
    Andy.

    Kabelmeister,
     
    I'm very excited by the sheer diversity of equipment that'll be present, by finally being able to put faces to the thread regulars who've contributed so much, and by the thought of attendees winning all of the fantastic raffle prizes.  [​IMG]
     
    Cheers,
     
    Andy.

    Guys,
     
    Many posts ago I wrote that Head-Fi supremo Jude was interested in contributing T-shirts to the meet to assist with raising funds for our chosen charity. Well Jude has come up trumps and shipped 30 black T-shirts in medium, large and extra large sizes to be sold at the meet. The design is more Head-Fi specific than the T-shirt already produced but very cool nonetheless. 
     
    In the interests of fairness, if anyone that had previously ordered a Union Jack T-shirt prefers Judes design - which will be revealed at the meet - I'll happily swap your order for the new design subject to availability. 
     
    Cheers,
     
    Andy.

    Nuwidol,
     
    Thanks for letting me know and I look forward to seeing you at the meet.
     
    Cheers,
     
    Andy.
