    As I travel nearly 4 hours per day on the trains, subways and buses to and from work my audio focus has been in the portable digital audio space. But I'm getting to a point in my audio journey where I would like to get some real nice home audio stuff too. Currently I have the Cord Hugo and the HE-1000's for home use. I'm thinking about the Schiit Yggdrasil with upgrades, Cord Hugo TT, Lampizator or any equipment that sounds as good or better. Not sure if anyone even has these pieces but I would appreciate if someone was willing to bring it to our meet?
    Sincerely,
    -Speed

    I am sorry but due to work I won't be attending (literally just found out my vacation wasn't approved). I will have to hit you guys up at the next meet.

    Maxx, Higgs, and I all have Yggys. There are currently no upgrades for them though, but maybe sometime in the future. Cradon has the Lampizator Lite 7. I'm not aware of anyone on SBAF with a Chord Hugo TT. You can do much better than the Hugo TT with less money (from opinions I've read). We'll have a pretty nice lineup of amps as well. The gear list is in the first post.

    Aww man that sucks :(. Yeah hopefully when we have another meet!

    Just saw this...is it still open? Weekdays are out for me, I work some Saturdays, free others, free Sunday's. I have the HE-1000 and 560, FAD Pandora VI, Shure 1560, and a lot of iems. Use the Pono as source, also Geek Out Special Edition/REgen, but more difficult to set up. Also have MicroZOTL 2, Liquid Carbon, and RSA HR-2. Would like to attend if still possible and schedule permits. (didn't get to the end of the thread yet...).
    Thanks

    Just went back a bit, looks all final, oh well, have fun y'all.

    Hey guys!

    Just wanted to post an update since we're getting a bit closer to the meet date. Could the people who need rides or a pickup from the babylon train station please say so here? speedracer will supply us a big hero sandwich and drinks but if anyone would like to bring some of their own food or dessert to share, that would be awesome! If you guys have extra power cords or strips, bring those as well. I'll pm you guys the address around a week before the meet.

    We're planning to start the meet at about 1pm so if you guys take the LIRR at 11:15 or 11:45, you'd get to babylon at about 12:35 or 12:51/1:01 respectively. I'll be there a little bit early to help set up.

    Was just looking into trains. Looks like best train for me is from FORREST HILLS STATION in Queens leaving at 11:31am and arriving at BABYLON STATION at 12:35pm. Just an FYI for other train-takers.

    Oh man, I hope the Alrist Audio Heron 5 makes a surprise visit. I've heard it's the best amp ever ;)
