    Ravi is out. Need to finish the last of deck restoration and a bunch of other non-work things that have been piling up due to the long hours.

    Should I give CEE TEE any of my gear? Pulse infinity + LPS4? GO V2 + balanced cable?

    Any of you dill weeds want to buy my HP1000 or CT's TransDAC?

    Yes please! I can also stop by and pick those up if it'd make CEE TEE's life easier. I have a GO V2 + a balanced cable that I can setup for people to use.

    Adam, do you need more amps or cables or anything like that?

    I recommend people try the same HD6X0 with GO V2's Balanced and SE outputs to hear the difference. I got to try that today...the GO V1 did not offer Balanced ouputs. I didn't have the proper cables/adapters when I reviewed loaner prototype V2. Good stuff.

    Ok, so let's do this from 10am-4pm (or we're all tired out). I think this will be a good meet! I'll forward the address via PM soon. Let me know if anyone else wants to bring something more. I figure we can go grab lunch in Palo Alto.

    I should have all the cables I need, but it wouldn't hurt to bring some backups that would make sense (some interconnects or headphone cables). We'll probably leave things where they are with the cables we have, but who knows! It could get crazy and we'll need some cables for a DAC off or something.

    I've got Code-X if anybody wants to listen. Otherwise, probably don't have anything people would be interested in.

    I'm in for Saturday.

    Recarcar, I'll be driving from Marin so I don't mind picking you and dropping you off if you are anywhere along the way.

    I'll bring:

    Yggdrasil
    Oppo BDP-105

    HD600 - stock
    HD650 - stock

    I live in Livermore. I think what would be easiest is if I pick you up from the bart station in west dublin then I can drop you off later.

    Let me know if that works as well.

    Thanks TMoney and velvetx! I don't want to make either of you go way out of your way! TMoney, if any of the BART lines along Market St. aren't out of the way of your route, I can meet you at any of those. Velvetx, if you don't live too far from West Dublin that might be easier so TMoney doesn't have to take a detour. Thanks to both of you! It's greatly appreciated!

    Dude no joke this is on the way to Palo Alto from the East Bay side literally it's just taking an exit and is on my way.

    Is anyone going down to the event from the Sacramento area? If so, I can supply some LightSpeeds and maybe a Vi DAC. Let me know.

    recarcar looks like you worked it out, but let me know otherwise, i'll be coming from the city and can stop by the post st station, mission st might even be better in terms of location to the freeway.

    I'd love to see it. Especially compared to the HE-6/HE-560/Enigma/LCD-2.2s we'll have there.
