    I've been approved! I'll also be taking the train arriving at 12:35 PM at Babylon.

    Out of the gear in my profile, is there anything specific people would like? I was thinking I could bring the HD600 (just to have another pair), K712 (might be interesting to compare to the K7XX), and my IEMs since they're small anyway (maybe we can finagle some universal tips on the K10?). If anyone wants to hear the Asgard 2 / Modi2U, I could bring those too, but I don't have my laptop with me currently so I wouldn't have a source other than my phone.

    Would love to hear the Asgard 2 if you can bring it. It would be kind of interesting to compare the K712 with the K7xx but based on everything I have read they are going to sound very similar.

    Sure, I'll definitely bring it then. I'll just have to make sure not to use it before I leave, so I don't burn a hole in my bag. ;-)

    Looks like most will be taking the 12:35 train that arrives in babylon, I will be driving a dark Blue 2005 dodge caravan & will be parked by the ticket booth. A head count would be good all coming by train.
    I will put sign on the dash that says bozebuttons

    Hey guys! Just wanted to post some basic guidelines and precautions for the meet. I've already met 2/3rds if you, so you guys know what to do at meets. For the rest of you, I'll just take this from Tyll's post:

    We will have a sign-in sheet at the meet for you to sign-in and write down what gear you've brought to the meet. And as an additional precaution, I'd like to advise you guys to make your own checklist for everything you've brought to the meet. You are responsible for your own gear. @sphinxvc will be posting his own guidelines for the CIEM demos that we've obtained from Julie. Additionally since this meet is being held at @speedracer1's private house, please respect his rules and wishes.

    I've received Zach's ZMF Omni and Blackwood today, so I will be bringing them to the meet tomorrow. As a reminder, please bring extra interconnects, power cables, and power strips if you can! I look forward to seeing you guys tomorrow and if you have any questions, you know how to contact me.

    I'm bummed to report that one of my kids just woke up sick and my wife's plans mean that I'll have to stay home with the sick one tomorrow. I'm sorry I won't be able to meet all of you and for bailing at the last moment.

    Does anyone have an extra 3.5mm to RCA auxiliary cable I can borrow during the meet. Unfortunately, I do not really have a portable source and was going to just use that cable to plug an Ipod/phone into my amp (with others being able to plug in their own device as well so they can listen to their own music). Unfortunately, Staples closed yesterday before I could get there. It may re-open before I have to leave but it will be close. So, it would be helpful if I could borrow that cable from someone just in case I cannot get one before the meet.

    Shoot @Colgin, just got on the train at Penn. =/ Had one of those at home.

    Guys, I have the CIEMs as you know. Here are some ground rules: please use the tips sparingly, move your set from ciem to ciem. You can dump gel tips back into a bag/box named "used covers", they will be sterilized. Foam tips are disposable, throw them in the trash.

    For the JH siren series, there's a special screw driver to adjust bass, it's in the case. Dials only turn from 7 o'clock to 5 o'clock. Don't try to turn it 360.

    Don't move CIEMs around without notifying me. Those are the basics, I'll have a full list next to them at the meet.

    I just left my apartment and packed up my Liquid Carbon but left my power cord at home. Oops. So if anyone has an extra AC power cord of any variety that would be appreciated. Sorry for being such a beggar today. Thanks.

    I'm not going to be able to make it. I had to pull over on the way there because I'm not feeling well. I'm bummed. Hope everyone has a great time and I hope to make it next time.
