Hey'o! I can Attend this! I lucked out and already have these days off

Only qualm right now is sleeping, ideally I'd love to have a couch to crash on! I'm doing shows 2 weeks before and after so less hotels is nice BUT I can get a double twin room at a discount via my wife's employment if any one is interested

Anyways for stuff I'll very much have the following

Aune X1S
  • Schiit Vali 1
JDS Labs EL Dac / OL Dac
  • Atom
  • EL Amp
Auris Euterpe

RME ADI 2 [With Topping D-10 running USB to Coax]
  • Ember II with Noise Nuke & All circuit Bypasses
  • Recapped/Modded APPJ pa1502a
  • RHNP Precision Headphone Amp
Headphones;

Audeze;
  • LCD X
  • LCD 2C
Sennheiser
  • HD 800
  • HD 600
Mr Speakers Aeon C
Campfire Audio Cascade
  • Stock Filters Removed

An If any one would like I can also bring

SONY MDR V6
Superlux HD 668B with Velours
iBasso PB2 with external LPSU
ALO RKMX3B
HeadAmp Pico Power
HM901
Geek Out V2+
JDS Labs The Element

And I might have some ZMF stuff on hand, still waiting to get confirmation on them/that and I may or may not have Modi 3 and Lyr 3, I'll need to check with Schiit if I can keep em a bit longer

An part of what I have is on temporary loan from a few vendors, so I want to also thank them for allowing me to bring this stuff to this meet! I love what I've heard from these products and I'm excited for those of you who have not heard some or most of this gear to get to hear it!!!!!!!!

Will anyone be able to bring Victor HA-FW10000 iems? I'd bring a DX220 with amp1 mkii and amp8 and Sony IER-Z1R iems for comparison. Having a 4.4mm balanced cable would be ideal.

I won't have any IEMS and quick update, I will not have LCD 3 or 2Closed Back, slight miscommunication on my part so maybe in the future at other meets I'll have em

But I'll still have 2Classic Open Back and LCD X

anyone got Hifiman Arya or HE1000 V2 or SE?
I will be there with my HE-1000SE and Hiby R6 Pro, possibly some other stuff. I'm looking to sell my ADI-2 Pro Anniversary Edition, if anyone's interested.

Kind of goofy but I hope it's something you guys will look forward to

I have a shirt from zmf a shirt from JDS labs in the shirt from linear tube audio and I'll be giving away at the meet no raffle or anyting

Now if somebody hosting this is actually doing a raffle I'm happy to contribute the shirts to that just reach out to me

And the shirts are just stuff that I've gotten in the last couple of months and I feel it's going to be best to share them with you guys ^^

I'm working at LTA again. Just building stuff mostly, this time around. There's a more qualified guy in charge of talking to people about the company and products. We're almost certainly coming to the meet, though we're still figuring out who's going. I'll tag along with whoever else goes to help with stuff but mostly just to go to the meet. Should have the MZ3 and the ZOTL10e (electrostatic + regular headphone amp) but can't confirm yet. So here's a post saying that LTA will probably be there, probably with new stuff, and probably will post again confirming these things.

Can anyone convince Doshi to send up their newish headphone amp?

And thank you, Ken. We like giving raises to good employees not just looking for a Summer job. You can learn neat stuff.

4 hr really isnt enough. The pre-meet went by really quick, especially if it just a pre-meet and so many gear were brought, I didnt even get to listen to everything. Anyway have fun guys, too bad I cant be there.
