    I'm in Fairfield County, Connecticut with NYC being an easy train ride away. I'm new to the NYC area, but lived near the SF Bay Area until early 2014. I used spend a fair amount of time going to meets/ mini meets with many of the Bay Area members on this site. Being near a metro area with a good audio community again, I'd like to fall back into that habit.

    Hi there! I won't be organizing another NY SBAF meet for some time, but maybe we'll see you at Canjam in a few months. Welcome to the east coast!

    Sorry to hear about your JH13's. What's the story behind that?

    I got my CanJam tickets a while back, so it'd be nice to run into a few folks from here.

    As for the JH13s, I could dedicate a 'wall of text' post to it, of which would certainly be out of the scope of this thread. Here's a long story short version...

    I've owned my JH13 for five years. Never had an issue with JH's service or quality. All of my experiences with them have been A+. I've sent them in for cleaning a couple of times over the years, once for a damaged shell, and one previous left ear refit in January 2013. I guess my left ear changes over time more than the right. I sent them in for a left ear refit in in April. After seven refits on the left ear, they still haven't got the fit right. They're in for refit number eight since April now!

    The refit journey for my left ear piece has been:
    1. Full reshell with new impression: Canal is too tight.
    2. Still too tight.
    3. Still too tight.
    4. Still too tight. This IEM doesn't even look my ear anymore.
    5. Full reshell again with new impression: Still too tight in the canal, too much prominence in the crus of Helix.
    6. Still too tight, still too much crus of helix prominence!
    7. Still too tight, still too much crus of helix prominence!
    8. Waiting for it to come back. We shall see.

    JH has been very friendly and very responsive both by email and phone throughout this process. The IEM always comes back in an absolutely beautiful and top quality shell. They just haven't been able to get the fit right this time around.

    So what do you guys think about phase 1 of the Second Ave Subway (SAS) line being completed? Unfortunately as someone commuting from the Bronx to FiDi, I honestly don't think it'll make much of a difference at all. The 4/5/6 trains on Lex are already crowded when they get to 125th st from the Bronx. The SAS doesn't do anything to relieve the load from the Bronx unless it can eventually be extended to 3rd ave 138th st.

    Please add me to the list; I would be interested in attending a small-ish meet. It would be my first time doing so and would just be overwhelmed by something large like canjam. Product wise I don't think I have anything worth contributing but could bring a HD6XX and modded 650 if someone wanted to compare the unmodded and modded directly.

    SAS won't extend to the Bronx anytime soon as the proposed station expansions for Phase 2 end at 125 / Lex and that new station (as planned) turns and faces west, not north; and there are no plans to do so as Phases 3 and 4 will only be about going south below 63rd. So SAS will offer a connection with the IRT at 125 but Bronx riders will already be in Manhattan at that point. They may have tail tracks at the new station for future connection to the Bronx but who knows when that would be. http://secondavenuesagas.com/2016/03/06/16153/

    Done.

    That's the problem... the SAS won't do anything for the Bronx once it's completed. People are making this extension out to have more of an effect than it actually will. Time will tell when Phase 1 opens up in 2 weeks.

    Thanks. SAS was rebooted to alleviate ridership woes on the Lexington line due to the east side access project bringing more people, LIRR riders, into grand central in a few years. The Bronx was never the focus AFAIK.

    Yeah of course, the outer boroughs won't get the attention that they need.

    CanJam NYC coming up in 3 weeks. Who's going, and on which day? Maybe we can get together for lunch or dinner after it's over.

    I'll be at the show for sure on Saturday and heading back into Fairfield Country sometime on Sunday.

    I'll be there Saturday and part of Sunday. Like seeing what's on the tables, but also what's in development that most don't get to see. The show behind the show is the most fun for me at this point. See you all there.

    Also I'll have both an NW-WM1A and NW-WM1Z with me if anyone wants to compare and contrast outside of the Sony booth.

    Cheers

    I will be at CanJam. Probably on the Saturday, but perhaps Sunday as well. I guess I should hold off on any major purchasing decisions until after the show. (Andros, must resist. ;))

    If I'm around I might end up going to CanJam, but really can't think of anything new that I'm genuinely interested in hearing other than the Atticus/Eikon. Is there supposed to be any hype train fuel debuting at CanJam NYC this year?

    I'll be there on Sunday and would definitely love to hear how the Sony players play with my Z1R. If the A has a nice synergy with the Z1R, I just may take the dive.
