    Wish I could make it but I don't get back to NOVA until July. :/
    Any chance for a July or August meet?

    I think canmania is still happening on the 10th of July at capital audio fest, though I can't make it there.

    Anyone interested in a DC-area SBAF meet in the fall?

    Yes! I'll be back from Virginia Tech for Thanksgiving break.

    I'll need to see what happens, lots of things in my life are up in the air right now.

    I think the DC-area crew should have a social gathering and go hunting for vinyl and get a few drinks :bird:

    Idiot me missed all 3 gathering in the recent months. I would love to have a get together. Can't legally drink yet but would love to be a DD and shop for some vinyl.

    Around Thanksgiving there should be room to hold the meet in the Urban HiFi store in Takoma Park. This would also allow any speakers or speaker amps to be demoed.

    Are you looking at that weekend after Thanksgiving or before? 19/20th would be the weekend before and the 26/27th would bet the one after. I don't mind helping out setting this thing up.

    Whichever most people can make it to can most-likely be accommodated. Right now we're still getting our fire alarm permit and haven't laid down the floor in the front listening area, I'll know more about how we'd best accommodate a meet as we fill in the store, but we're wanting to do community events so having room for people will be a consideration.

    I think Thanksgiving time works well for a meet.

    I would like to setup something when Joe's Record Paradise reopens in a month or so. There is a pirate themed bar in downtown Silver Spring called "Piratz" that is appropriate for our crew

    If I don't get the job in Pittsburgh, I might bring some Dennis Had speaker amps. The 6L6 amp comes with switches to go between triode and ultra linear, and can be changed on the fly for comparisons. The other amp is a 45 SET. I'd bring my speakers, but they'll probably be gone as I don't have room for them

    You could always come demo them and then sell them for a good price to someone of the people that are interested!

    They're probably going to my brother, but we'll see. Again, this also depends on me not getting a new job and moving, and that process will take another 4 weeks or so.

    I figured this is a good place to check...is there anyone in the DMV that has a Jotunheim? I would really like to hear this amp. Also if anyone has modded HD650's I would be interested in hearing them too. I am debating doing the mods to my stock 650's but I am hesitant about the mid-bass accentuation I keep reading about. Please PM me to set something up, thanks!

    I don't have a jotunheim but I do have a completely modded hd650. I'm 25 minutes outside of Baltimore in Maryland if you wanna do something in the future?

    Did we ever get something going for a meet around Thanksgiving time?
