People have done it in the past, streamed tidal. My main source is a Fiio X5, debating whether I should just bring a old gemini cd player with coax out to my DAC, just tell people to bring CD's. The Fiio is great, but have observed in the past that people who don't have experience with one may not know how to navigate it.
I would definitely bring some CD's if you do end up bringing a CD player. Also, that way, if anyone wants to wander over into the regular library section, they could always just check out something to listen to as well.

Going to really try to make this one, should be able to, at least as of right now.

I'll be bringing my custom woody HD650s and custom woody Beyer DT770s for sure and probably my Ultra-Fi DAC41 and upgraded Elekit 8200 amp along with them, with plenty of tubes for folks to try of course! I also have a portable setup if anyone is interested, a Cowon Plenue D with V-MODA M-100s.

While I would like to bring my main source along too, as I've done quite a bit of work to it, however it is really massive and is harder to travel with. Some of the custom things it has is a Paul Pang PPA Version 3 USB card that is powered from an external linear PSU and feed from a SSD that is vibration mounted, lined with an EMI/RFI absorber, and also powered from the external linear PSU. The case is also covered internally with EMI/RFI blocker material, among many other things including an internal steel separation wall. All of this affects the sound from the source and adds very nice improvements, however as arteom already knows, it isn't small nor very portable. So, unless there is some interest here in it, I'll probably just leave it at home and bring a more portable setup, such as a tablet, to run into my DAC, etc.

Cheers to the meet!

February is always iffy for me, but I'll try to make it, depending on weather and date. Don't have much left, but I could bring Sony WM-1Z, Empire Ears Phantoms, and 64 Audio Tia Fourtes, both with Effect Audio 8 wire cables; one a Thor silver 8 and one an Eros silver/copper hybrid 8.

Would love to try those cables :)

I may be able to make it... I think the most interesting things I have is the Yggy/V281/Abyss Phi CC chain and maybe the Audeze Mobius.

What source do you have? I’m going to try to bring Lampizator—>Wells Headtrip—>Abyss Phi with CC pads. Could be interesting to compare.

I will also be bringing a Project Ember II with a ton-o-tubes. Also, if it arrives from China in time, a Khadas Tone Board DAC.

Not sure why I hadn't originally reserved first hour of the room, but have done so now. The meeting space will now be available from 9AM-4PM.

Chord Hugo 2 TT arrives from uk this Friday so it appears I will be able to bring some of the latest head tec from across the pond . I’ll also bring ak320,Hugo 2 portable, AK 380 amp and Ali CDM and lcd-xc Jh Michel ,Kimber kable Axios CU, plussound exo 6 gold plated silver and numerous red Allen cables . Cardas clear light etc...
If anyone has speakers the are over 96 dB sensitive we could see what that sounds like with the Hugo 2 TT.
