    I've never been to a meet but am curious to try new stuff (especially higher end Schiit). Not sure if any meets are happening down here but wanted to find out. Or if anyone lives in Austin and likes showing off gear...

    There's an annual meet that I've been to twice that I found about on head-fi, though it was on Jan. 23rd this year so that may be a ways away. I'd be interested in a mini-meet though.

    P.S. I have an Asgard 2, Modi 2U (but if the modibit is released Monday, I'll return it and get that), and a pair of HE-400is. Nothing *too* fancy, but a pretty great rig that is affordable by a high school student.

    I'll be in Austin for a conference in early November. I'd be up for a small get together.

    Looks like I'll be in Austin mon nov 7. I'll be there all week, but that is the only night I'm available. I'll be at the DoubleTree by Hilton Austin NW Arboretum. I'm actually flying out to LA for the SBAF meet, then from there to Austin for a conference (Tableau software). I plan to being my PMx2 and ether C. I'd love to get together in the evening to hear some cool stuff-maybe a Mimby and a jot :)

    If you want to get together at my place I have a Yggy, Black Widow, Mainline, HD 800 and other gear I may or may not sell before then (Ragnarok, SpeedBalled Crack, HE-560, HD 800S) that we can all play with. Historically though I end up not actually selling gear (I have a very understanding wife) and just hanging onto it. Anyhow, I'd be down for an SBAF hangout and any other local interested Friends are welcome to join as well. None of my local friends or family understands my audio love so it would be cool to hang with people who get it.
    If anyone wants to hang elsewhere I can transport all gear except the Yggy to wherever people want to get together. It has been powered on from day one and will remain as such.

    Cool! I could probably leave the conference by 6:30. Hopefully the traffic will be a little less by then. I'll post again closer to not 7. Hopefully we can get one or two others. You equipment sounds awesome.

    I'd be up for that as well... I live close to downtown Austin, but can commute short distances, I have a scooter.

    I've been wanting to hear Yggy and BW!

    I'll be getting Jot in a few days, have a Mimby, T90, may have an HD650 soon and may still have Valhalla 2...

    Colt, since you're local I'd be down for listening sessions/meetups at other times too. Always happy to talk shop and listen to kickass tunes. I'm signed up for the Joti/HD650 loaner tour but could feasibly bow out of that if I can hear your setup. I've been very much wanting to hear an HD600 and HD650 without having to purchase them first. I already bought the HD800S and HE-560 without being able to hear them first and to my ears they don't compare to the HD800. So far that headphone is the only can to scratch my audio itch but I feel confident that other deserving cans are out there and many people here rave about the HD6X0 so I feel the need to audition them. Let me know if you want to have a mini-meet.

    Yeah, I'd be up for that, of course... what part of town are you in?

    if you dudes aren't blasting Bardo Pond at the Austin meet, will start hitting the dislike button.

    I'm heading to the airport in an hour or so, due back on Wednesday. Normally Wednesday and Thursday evenings are best for my schedule if that works alright for you. PM me for address/ph# info.

    I have a pretty insane work schedule. Have to go to bed by 8, to be up at 3am. Wednesday evening I have to be in bed by 8... so might be better to try next week. I need to take a look at my schedule though...
