Winnipeg Head-Fi Meet - Sunday June 15th, 3pm
My house in Fort Richmond (not Lindenwoods), on Tulane Bay.
Please respond to the pm or call/text me for exact the address.
 
It'll be a bbq as well (weather permitting) and I'll set up a couple tables in my garage for all the gear. Bring stuff to toss on the grill if you like. I've got a firepit as well, though perhaps headphones and fire are not the best combination.
 
I think we need to make a running list of who's bringing what. How about I make a list in this post that I'll keep updated?
 
Armaegis:
- Hifiman HE-6 and HE-300
- Nuforce HA-200 monoblock amps and uDac3
- Echo2 (dac)
- Mad Dog 3.2

Other stuff I can bring if there's interest...
 
Furutech powercords
Beyer COP with T50rp drivers
Amperior with 600 ohm drivers
my own modded Fostex T50rp
Centrance Dacmini PX
Nuforce Icon/HDP/LPS stack
Munitio Pro40
 
 
I'd really like to hear some other balanced sources to plug into my monoblocks. I'm potentially looking for an upgrade from my Echo2.

Nathan, if i can't make it I'll drop by your place at an earlier date and drop off some gear for the guys to listen too. Message me the date and time and I'll get back to you. I feel rather guilty you've been waiting this long to hear the AD.

Hey guys, I'll also have the bbq ready to go, so bring stuff for the grill if you like. I've got some smokies I can toss on. Currently have a bunch of home made burgers in the freezer, but there's a high likelihood that I'll be consuming those in the next couple weeks

There are DIY tutorials online as well, if you want to take Iron Maiden's advice and bring your daughter to the solder (that's the song's title, right?).
 
I'm pretty sure it's easy to re-cable Grado 'phones.

It all comes down to how easy it is to open the cups. Some of them are hot glued, so a hair dryer or steam will loosen it up easily. Others are almost an epoxy, or the inner is wooden (and sometimes cracked) which makes life difficult. I've had some that came apart with nothing more than my hands pulling the cups. I've had others where I literally had to cut the cups off with a dremel. Then there was that one time I discovered you could melt grados with acetone...

Hey does anyone here have an old desktop computer they'd want to sell or trade for audio gear? I'm looking for something to replace my mom's old machine

Just thought I should point out that the meet is on Father's day (I didn't realize that when we were planning it). Does that affect you guys who've got families?

Good point! With me working the whole day, it might be a stretch for me to spend the balance of it in some guy's garage listening to headphones. I'll give it some thought.
