    I have a pair of Orions that are just sitting at home (i'll be back in vancouver december 22nd to January 5th) that i'd be willing to hand off to Griffon or another GV/Richmonder to go on an extended tour.

    @sphinxvc Maybe we can coordinate something?.

    It'd be selfish, but I'd love to get my hands on an Elear. I don't think I would participate in the loaner until I had something of at least modest value to contribute on my own; HD700s probably aren't in very high demand to see how they sound, even if my pair are modded.

    I spoke with @Armaegis and @Mikoss, so hopefully we can have a good time with some sort of loaner tour.
    Armaegis has one of my Makoyi (pronounced Mah-Goy-E for anyone who was curious) and many tubes to try.
    Hoping to also do a loaner tour in the new year as well for my OTL amp, Natayo (Nah-Die-Yo). Unfortunately not nearly as tube-rollable, but it sounds and measures very well.

    I was thinking randos like me can get some credibility for loaners if we can pitch in some items for tour in return for a demo of some loaner gear, not that much of my gear can probably match the loaner selection for value, but it should be equivalent to a contributor title. Just a thought on how to work out the plan for it to be more available to others. Looking forward to input.

    I don't imagine that i'll be taking part in any loaners until the latter half of 2017, If we want to get a Orion loaner going please let me know by early January so i can hand it off to an established Friend so that they may handle the logistics while i'm in California. With that said, i'd like to reiterate that i'm totally okay with loaning out my Orion for a while. Let me know. @Griffon @sphinxvc

    I'm perfectly fine with an Orion loaner at any time. Much thanks!

    Hey guys, just thought I'd post in here again to see who's interested in the Wolf Ear Makoyi for a loaner tour. I've got one all packed up with a ton of tubes. Due to the weight and value, we'll start this one in Canada and friend status and figure it out from there how to get it to the Yanks down south. I believe @Mikoss stated interest already. Anyone else? We'll ask the sphinxmeister to make a thread later.

    I would be tentatively interested, depending on how the time frame works out. Also in Toronto.

    If any friends would like to test a Jotunheim with DAC module, I have one and would be willing to loan it out.

    Just a heads up, I recently got my SDR from @sorrodje in and I bought two, if any Canadian friends would like one I will send one out for the cost of postage.

    Ok, so it looks like we've got a few heads interested in the Wolf Ear Makoyi... @Mikoss and @k4rstar

    Mr @bxh I don't believe I know who you are. Do you have feedback on headfi or elsewhere?

    Assuming shipping and stuff goes alright, I have some Elears on the way. If they end up being my "to keep" pair, I may consider donating my modded HD700s to a Franada loaner program incase anybody feels like 'trying them out' due to curiosity and/or masochism.

    I'm a doofus, I forgot to tag @sphinxvc to make a loaner thread for this one.

    I'll add my name to the list of vendors/manufacturers in the True North. Calgary, AB.

    "Vendor/manufacturer" may be an overstatement. I'm in the same small business category as Wolfear. Quality gear, hand made.

    Updated, thanks.

    In case any Friends or Contributors missed it earlier, the Campfire Audio Orion loaner tour is underway in Canada.

    Hey fellow Canadians,

    I'm in North Vancouver, and thought I would pop in to say hello after barelyincollege sent me a link to this thread. I'm in Scotland currently but if there was a meet locally and I was in town, I would definitely try to swing by. I'm selling some of my gear currently so I don't have anything interesting to loan out sadly.
