    Hi chaps. Wondering if there's any appetite for an SBAF meet in the UK sometime? I'm not sure how many UK people we have on here, but let's see if there's any interest...

    Well, depending on where it was, and how much I was struggling with schedules and my own enormous
    social awkwardness at the time, I would be, potentially.

    Well let's see how many people are interested, and where they're located. I used to be extremely shy...one thing that really helps I think is socialising with people who share a common interest. Honestly, I still have no interest in social occasions unless they're about audio gear or bicycles :)

    Ah, yes, I shall now look shifty about the three bikes in the garage, which I no longer ride due to being scared of the cars on London's roads. I ended up taking up running to get that endorphin fix instead...

    ..but yeah, it'd be nice if we could flush out a few more local types.

    Heh funnily enough I'm also in a running phase at the moment. Very time efficient. I probably wouldn't ride much if I lived in London, far too scary.

    Roll up, UK SBAF'ers!

    Technically I'm not from the UK but I'm in Ireland for a few months now, might try to turn up if you guys don't mind and it doesn't clash with my test dates.

    Excellent, you are most welcome mate. Once we get a few people interested we can start talking about dates and location that work for everyone.

    Also, check out the 2017 HF meet that's in the works (thread here and at HF).

    Ah, I'll be back home in 2017, so that's out for me.

    I'm in northeast London and depending on the timing and what's going on, I'd be interested in meeting up.

    Well, I emigrated, and air fares are too high for me now, so I don't expect to be back in London/UK until '17 or '18 or later. But I'd join you people if I was there, so, hey, I'm posting an encouraging note!

    I would have liked to have seen the London canjam, but my visit dates didn't coincide. Seem to remember there has been some other UK meet over past couple of years?

    I'd love to come, but it would require air fare and I'm not sure it's on the cards right now. Keeping an eye on this.

    Based on the utter tosh that you post, I'd certainly take the opportunity to buy you a pint, if we ended up at the same place. I get the feeling that it would be a convivial conversation :cool:

    Ahhh... yes, we could exchange some great tosh! Oh well, another year, maybe!

    Wouldn't Indulgence Show be a good opportunity to hook up?

    Argh, I wouldn't be able to. Would have just left Rochester Kent on the 10th after the lit fest.

    I could, potentially- I think I am at a loose end that weekend, anyway.

    I'm in Hemel Hempstead and London would be great. Or MK or anywhere with a train link....

    Anybody with a new Focal is welcome to come over to my flat to compare to an HD650 out of a Bimby>Mojo 2 chain :D

    The wife is away in Spain with our brand new daughter so if a bunch of you want to come over with TOTL cans I would not complain.

    I can ask the organizer of Indulgence Show if he has a spare table or room for the headphone geeks. If he isn't on here anyway.
