    Hey guys, I'm thinking we should have a meetup sometime mid-march or later (that's when my MCTH is going to come in). I have a friend that's just getting into the hobby (he got himself a vali 2, a couple tubes, modi 2, and a pair of 650s) and he's dying to try out some gear haha. Do we want to start planning something? I'll find out what days will work in about 2 weeks or so. I hope you guys are having a great new year!

    Sounds like a plan! I could bring the following:

    Headphones:
    HD800S
    Audeze LCD i4
    Sennheiser IE80
    Simgot EN700 Pro

    DAPs/DACs:
    Lotoo Paw Gold
    Sony PHA-3
    Shanling M3S

    IEM Cable:
    PW Audio No.5

    And hopefully, (by the time we meet), I would have bought myself an amp for the HD800S and possibly a HD6XX and have it modded.

    If all goes as planned I will already have moved out of the country by March.

    I am bringing a modded HD650, (possible my sister's KISS modded HD6XX) an sdr modded HD800, Modi Multibit, Asgard 2 (if anyone wants to hear it), MCTH, a pi based digital transport w/ the pi2design hat and a linear PSU I made. My friend has a currently unmodded HD650, Vali 2, and Modi 2 (4490). I've also been messing w/ my measurement mic and my 10 y/o brothers Monoprice 8323 if anyone wants to hear it for shits and giggles (it's crap but good for the $17 w/ dope build quality). I also have a pair of Shure SE215 special editions that anyone can try.
    Aww we could meet earlier but I'm also really wanting to compare my MCTH with some amps. When are you moving? I hope you enjoy your new home. :)

    If it's between the 14th and 23rd of March I can probably make it. Can bring any of my stuff that anyone cares to hear. Ether Flow. CA Vega. Aeon closed. Hd800 super Dupont. Q701. Jotunheim. Lh Labs GO2 pro infinity.

    I live in the Dallas area, but I might be game for a road trip to Austin!

    I have an Eikon, the MD MEE buds, MCTH on the way, Bifrost Multibit on the way, and MD Plus on the way.

    If the Austin meet stays in March, and you want to do something before your move, you and @Cryptosom and whoever else (not too many) are welcome to have a mini-meet at my place this month or in early-mid February. That is, of course, if you're keen for a short trip to Dallas.

    Let's definitely start planning something. It's always fun to get together with folks and listen to some tunes.

    Hoping to finally make a meet for once haha. Got a Black Widow, Liquid Carbon, Gungnir Multibit, and Modi Multibit to bring.

    I can make it anytime late Feb or March, except 3/9-3/18 (UT's spring break) :)

    Any more thoughts on potential dates? I have to decide my March work schedule soon. Delay until April?

    It looks like my MCTH is coming in Thursday, so anytime after that works - I'm busy weekend one in April, but most weekends should be workable. My Spring break is the 9th through the 18th, so it would be preferable to schedule around that but if that's the only time that works for most people I can try and make it - no hard plans yet.

    Hey folks,
    Schiit has been looking at doing a Schiitshow in Austin Sometime not too far from now. I can come down with the Schiitkit (and two-channel possibly?) And help find a space. I can usually get some other vendors to bring stuff (Audeze, ifi, etc.) so let me know if you'd be interested in any of that and I can help with planning.

    Yeah, I'd definitely go to a schiit show if there was one here and I didn't have to work.

    I would be interested in doing a meetup after all the SXSW madness is over.

    Hey all, sorry to hijack the thread. I have a trade going on with someone I've never met and am posting this to give some accountability by throwing it out there in front of the community. I've traded before with @jexby @JoshMorr @MisterRogers @kirayamato and a few others, as well as hosting a couple of mini-meets in my home which have been documented here.
    If any of you that I've traded with in the past would like to vouch for me, even better!

    The trade in question is HD800S going from me to @seersha - and a Breitling watch from @seersha to me.

    Once the trade is complete and both parties are happy, we'll update this thread as complete.

    Again, sorry to thread-jack, I just couldn't find a proper place to put a thread of this nature.

    Once again putting out feelers for a meet. Would be good to hear equipment I can't afford. I've had a mini meet at Erroneous' place a while back, where I got to hear his HD800 (which I didn't own at the time), 800S, HE-560, Rag,Yggdrasil, BW.

    I was really impressed with the BW and 800. In the interim I got my own HD800 and a Torpedo 3 which I'm extremely satisfied with. I sold my Gungnir Multibit to fund a TOTL 4K TV but the DAC inside my Onkyo CD player is more than adequate until I save for another Gungnir Multibit.

    If anybody is game to get the meet train moving...
