Ok guys, so the meet is set for Sunday August 7th.
 
Location: my home in Fort Richmond (two minutes south of the U of M), send me a pm or text for the exact address. I might post this publicly sometime during the week but will delete soon after.
We haven't decided on a time...shall we tentatively say 12pm? Please reply here with your availability or if you have a preference for a different time.
 
Bring: whatever gear you're comfortable hauling, plus maybe some snacks... I will probably have the bbq going. The plan is to set up in my garage with a few tables out.
 
In case of rain, I might have an alternative location.

Noon is ideal for me. I will try to bring some pulled pork, buns and slaw for some really, really, really good sandwiches. (Yes, they are that good!).
 
Folks, have a look at my profile. Let me know what you'd like me to bring.

Oh man, if that's meat from your smoker I'm super keen for that (incidentally, my parents have been thinking of trying that out; any recommendations for beginner equipment?). I've got some nice feta and hard cheeses in my fridge we can cut up for the sandwiches.

I'll be bringing my Simaudio Moon 430HAD, Ether C, Oppo PM-2. a power bar and laptop. If you want me to bring something else, just say so. If you want me to bring the Blue Circle BmPH, then send a truck and two movers to my place, I'm not hauling that beast without some help.
 
As I mentioned earlier, I'll be bringing some pulled pork, slaw and buns. Does someone here have a hot plate they can bring to keep the pork hot? Also, some paper plates and napkins would be helpful. These sandwiches are messy.

I have plenty of plates/cups/napkins. If someone could bring some drinks that'd be great.
 
I've got some feta that needs to be used up. I might pick up some smokies if people want. If I had more time I'd do homemade burgers, but this weekend is a bit scrunched on time for me.
 
Velomane - I've got my bbq outside so if you bring the pulled pork in a pot that should be fine. Leave the BmPH at home though, my back hurts just thinking about it

Also I don't think anyone has a Mojo, but @DigitalFreak has a Chord 2Qute

It was great to see everyone today. Extra thanks to Velomane for bringing the awesome pulled pork sandwiches.
 
Unfortunately my phone died trying to take pictures, but we had a pretty impressive list of gear on the tables (and even more in the cars that never made it out!).

As usual I spent more time chatting and eating instead of listening, but I did enjoy a moment feeding the Yggdrasil into my Bryston B60. It was literally the thump of the very first note and I could tell it was far better than the built-in dac in the B60 (which admittedly isn't the greatest). I didn't get a chance to hear the Yggy into the Moon 430HA, but I'm a little afraid to.
 
I'm surprised how quickly some of you picked out the difference between the 2B and the B60. Not shabby for a $200 upgrade eh?
