    I plan to attend CanJam NYC this year, but will only be attending for one day, as I’m all out of Marriott points to stay at the hotel for free this year. I have friends trying to make plans for me on this weekend, so trying to gauge what day you guys want to meet up.

    This will most likely be my last meet in the NYC area, unless we have a mini-meet sometime shortly after. It’s looking like my last day of work will be 3/31 and then I’m being sent back west.

    Updated the OP with dates for CanJam NYC (feb 17-18) and Men I Trust concert (march 22-23).

    Chinese New year falls on Feb 16, so I'll have to see if that saturday or sunday would work better for me. Either dates for Men I Trust should be fine though.

    NYC-area friends and/or contributors:

    I'm about to receive a new run of SBAF cat and dog shirts from the printer. The plan is for me to Q.A. them and then ship them all to Marv so he can start selling them to other members. I have been authorized to pull some shirts for NYC people that want them before I ship him the rest for the general sale. If you are an NYC-area friend or contributor and want a shirt, fill out this form before Tuesday 1/30:

    https://goo.gl/forms/6REF2UmWATBN9fLJ3

    Some notes:
    • All shirts are printed on black American Apparel 100% cotton fine jersey tees
    • I can only hold one per person since run quantities are limited. You are free to buy additional shirts once the run is officially on sale
    • Final pricing has not yet been decided, but should be comparable to or cheaper than the last run. If you prefer to know the price in advance, please wait for the official sale.
    Thanks!

    Well, I will not be able to make it to CanJam this month. I'll be travelling for the rest of this month in CA/ NV for work.

    I have plans to see Men I Trust on 3/22 at Mercury Lounge. I'll be dropping into Fool's Gold next door for a drink and bite to eat before. They have great beer. Feel free to tag along.

    I won't be able to stay after canjam due to family obligations, but I am open to going either days. Which day are you guys likely going?

    Any NY pyrates have a balanced cable compatible with Oppo PM-1/PM-2/AZ PMx2 that I could borrow for a few days. (I believe that cables compatible with HE-560, HEK and HD 700 all work.) Not sure whether or not my next amp will be balanced or not so did not want to commit to buying a new cable if I end up with, for example, the ADI-2-DAC which is SE only. If anyone can help out please PM me. Thanks.

    I’m really sorry @Colgin that i hadn’t gotten back to you yet. I’ve been stuck in bed with the flu. I do have an extra balanced cable for you to use, but it might take a few more days for me to be well enough to get you the cable if you needed it sooner. (Btw, for any other NY folks who might be able to help, the PMx2 uses dual 2.5mm jacks).

    Thanks. Please take care of yourself. Flu has been wicked awful in NY this season. Let's catch up whenever you are feeling better.

    I'll be mostly tied to the FiiO booth again this year at CanJam NYC. Stop by to say hello if you can. I'll be flying back to the west coast on Monday night, so I'll have some time to chillax after the event.

    Colgin, I'll be bringing my soekris dac1541 if you want to try that with your PMx2. We can visit the sonarworks station and they'll have a RME-2 Dac parked there so you can do your AB comparison there.
