    Edmonton rando here. Never ever been to a meet but I'd be really stoked to attend one.

    As of now this is the following gear I can bring:
    - Stock HFM HE-560
    - Stock Senn HD650 (really keen to compare a modded one though I'll probably apply some dynamat and the coin mod soon.)
    - a good condition original Chord Hugo I got in a trade (it's for sale)
    - Bottlehead S.E.X. with C4S and Bottlehead power cord
    - Oppo HA-2SE
    - Astell Kern AK300
    - Noble Audio Katana
    - Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo Mk2
    - Massdrop edition JBL LSR305 bookshelf monitors (if someone is interested in hearing them)

    I plan to purchase an Eddie Current ZDS and possibly a multibit Schiit DAC (a gimby Bifrost Multibit Modi Multibit flimby of some sort) after the new year.

    For loaners, not sure if randos even participate but I like the concept. Would have to learn more about it before getting involved.

    It was a good meetup last month, who wants another one in about a month from now?

    I am available on the dates between the 25th of January to 30th of January.
    Also do the days between the 20th of February and the 25th of Feb. After that I am going away for a few months. Cheers.

    I'd be interested in trying plenty of headphones with the Bottlehead S.E.X, and other amps to use with HD650 and Focal Clear.

    @slankoe Any plans still for a ZDS? You have an impressive inventory, especially the Utopia which I have still not heard. My headphone setup has diminished greatly but I still have my HD650 and PS DSJr that may be of interest if you wanted to get together. There is a heavily modified Mainline on CAM that's been there for awhile, been curious to try it lol.

    I have made my order for ZDS but they haven' begun production on the current run yet. I am not sure when I will have it but hopefully by August. We will also hold a meet in August with a couple of micro meets in between.

    By the way, we now have a Facebook group and have grown considerably in a short period of time (the Edmonton Journal just wrote a blurb on us!) Feel free to PM me if you would like more info about that.

    Think I saw your focal clears on CAM last night and trying to figure out how i could afford it definitely kept me up longer than it should have..

    Wish there were meets going on here in Toronto, looks like a lot of fun(and gear)

    You guys from Edmonton are funny (in a good way). Most of the gear I sold on CAM went to Edmonton (after Toronto/GTA). And every time a buyer was saying like there are no many of us here (i.e. audio guys) in Edmonton.

    And looks at you now: Facebook group and more meet that there are here in Toronto! Thumbs up.

    I am so humbled by and proud of all the awesome Canadians on CAM, as well as those who have joined our group. I certainly had no idea there are so many of us music -- and gear -- lovers here! *good vibes and music :D

    I was actually born and raised in Hamilton, and its cool to see all you Ontarians here, too.

    Speaking of CAM, a massdrop CTH w/ sdac just popped up and someone should grab it quick.

    If it was w/out sdac ($100usd cheaper) it'd already be one its way to toronto right now
