    We probably will be finishing setting up at that time. The reason to start early is do that we can get the guys from Bangalore to catch their transportation in the evening at a reasonable time.

    I don't think parking's going to be a issue. If it turns out to be you can park near @Koth Ganesh's place, which is like 5 mins walk. It's not work, so you can be there any time you want.
    By 10 I will have Gumby/Yggy + ZDS / BW + 650 singing :)

    Guys I look forward to seeing you all on Saturday. I will be bringing 1 almost audiophile cousin who I'm trying to convert. ;)

    Can any of you lend me a portable DAC/amp or DAP until Saturday?

    I can pick up today and return on Saturday. I live in Chetpet.

    Please let me know.

    Ranjan, I'm sorry I saw your message only now. I was down with a bit of the flu last few days. Unfortunately, my Sony ZX2 is coming back only this evening (on loan).

    Abhishek and Karthik, we have proposed a 10 am start. Arun and I will be setting stuff up and ensuring they all work. Let me know what time you guys expect to arrive.

    I am expecting my friend to show up. He has a Decware amp and an amp from Bottlehead (its not the crack). Forgot the name.

    Finally, last call for @gurubhai.\/

    Add: We will begin the session with an invocation to @jexby

    Nick, navigate your way to Venus Colony 2nd Street Alwarpet, park anywhere and give me a shout. I'll come and get you. It's a 5min walk from there. Don't forget the HD 800 :headbang:

    Venus Colony 2nd Street? Isn't that over the other side of the junction?

    Noticed Ganesh Towers the other day, as I was driving to Venus Colony 1st Street: Asthika Samajam. Been there twice this week.

    Ganesh Towers is near where Tulsi silks used to be, right?

    If not... send me a location link on Whatsapp please.

    HD800? Could I bring the cat instead? He's sounding quite good at the moment --- but I wish he hadn't learned from TNS.

    Yes, it's in the other side and it's where Tulsi Silks used to be. Then it's fine if you know the place. And no, no cats.

    For complete clarity: HD 800 only, no cats

    Great. Bringing the cat.

    Yes, I know the area quite well. One of my fails: could have bought an independent house in one of those lanes.

    It lived! It Breathed! It even had lunch. :D

    I expect we'll get some pics and comments up very soon. I had a great time doing much the same as I do on the forum: taking an interest in one or two bits of gear and chatting a lot about vaguely-audio-related stuff. And stuff.

    But hey, let me open with this personal observation: The Utopias are... Utopian!

    @Koth Ganesh, with the help of @Arun Kumar, went to enormous trouble to carry and set up a huge collection of kit, which was all wired and working by the time I arrived. One may imagine Mrs Ganesh watching as item after item was taken out of the house and loaded into the car. Apparently, she had never seen it all together before, and words to the effect of. "You bought all this stuff? Seriously?" were spoken. I guess it is a good thing he didn't leave the price tags on! :D
