    Thanks. I don't remember any odd resonance, but I've only heard the originals and it was in what I'd expect would be a much larger room and that was probably 25 years ago. I can't say that my memory counts for anything going that far back.

    Well I guess anything is up for grabs - including:

    DAPS:
    • FiiO X5, X5ii, X5iii, X3ii, X3iii, X1ii, X7, X7ii (I still have to finish reviewing the X7ii first)
    • Luxury & Precision L3, L5 Pro (caveat - volume pot is somewhat broken/twitchy - arrived that way), LP5 Gold (that one would need to be on trust basis)
    • HiFiMan MegaMini, SuperMini
    Portable amps & DAC/amps
    • FiiO E17K, Q1, Q1ii, A5
    • IMS HVA
    • VE Runabout
    • Cozoy Aegis
    Planar IEMs
    • UM ME.1
    Hybrid IEMs
    • Dunu DN2000, DN2000J, DN2002, DK3001
    • Oriveti Primacy
    • FLC8S
    • Aedle ODS-1
    • Fidue A91 Sirius
    • LZ-A4
    BA IEMs
    • Pai Audio MR3
    • 64 Audio U10 (that one would need to be on trust basis)
    • Earsonics ES2 and ES3
    • Brainwavz B200 V2 and B400

    • Not sure about these ones - they are all actually owned by me and in regular use
      jays q-Jays, Alclair Curve, LZ Big Dipper (3 switch model)
    Dynamic IEMs
    • Dunu Titan 1, 3, 5
    • MEE P1
    • Rhapsodio RTi1
    • Simgot EN700 Pro
    • HiFiMan RE800, RE2000 (that one would need to be on trust basis)
    Earbuds
    • VE Zen 1 & 2, Azura 2
    Headphones
    • Sennheiser HD630VB
    • Alessandro MS Pro

    I have a lot more gear than that, but I only listed some of the ones people may have an interest in. I wouldn't have an issue some of it going global either (would need to talk with Marv about that). Some of the more expensive stuff would need to be on a really trusted basis - I don't own a lot of it, and just because it was supplied as a review sample does not mean I am not liable for it. I have an agreement with all the people I deal with that the gear is theirs, available for return if ever requested.

    I have more of my own gear, but some of it I wouldn't be comfortable lending until i know the people here a little better.

    Holy shit, just getting any of this stuff on a loaner cycle in NZ would be amazing. By the way, I think I met you once, at the Auckland meetup a few years ago. I was rocking TH600 at the time and the M2U stack.

    I'm also willing to contribute some gear, mostly cheaper stuff as I've actively been downgrading. Massdrop RE00, Beyerdynamic DT150, Massdrop Nuforce EDC. Philips SHE 3590. Also if my BO Play H6 don't sell soon I guess I can put those on a loaner tour.

    Probably was me - I had the LD MKIV on the table, a heap of portable gear, and I had a lot of HD800 owners come and try the L&P LP5 Gold (and going away suitably impressed).

    it was a great Meet. Hope we have another at some stage.

    Another Sydney lurker interested. I'm keen for tours but also short-term swaps if anyone else is keen. Don't have that much gear these days. Beyer T1; Burson amp; He-4XX and HD6XX incoming.

    Hi gang, I'm in talks with Todd about bringing the Apex Pinnacle 2 over for a short and rather exclusive loaner. If you are a friend, and have gear that would warrant a review or the funds to actually consider what would be over 20k aud amp. Shoot me a PM.

    Damn, I would love to hear it but I’m certainly not in the market for it. I can’t wait for your impressions v. Studio.

    I'll see what I can organise.. at this point I'm telling Todd we need a few more people from headfi and stereonet to make it worthwhile as insurance and postage on this amp would be huge..

    Looking forward to the reawakening! @Garns please add me to the list of members. I'm located in rural NSW and have a Meier Audio Corda Jazz-ff amp that I'd be willing to lend to appropriately vetted members.

    Hey guys,

    Any of you heading to The Melbourne audio show. I'm flying down on Friday with a mate, hit me up if you want to meet up for the show or for a bevvy afterwards.
