    I've had a mental tab running of SBAF members that are located in New England. Someday it would be cool to have a meet, if you are located in the north east drop a line below.

    From memory and stalking:

    @JoshMorr - Maine
    @TooPoor - NH
    @Ninja Pirate - NH
    @zonto - Metrowest - probabably Wellessley, loves the marathon and short shorts
    @Kon Peki - Boston
    @Ishcabible - Boston
    @SBAFedu - Boston
    @batriq - CT (do you even New Engladn Bro?)
    @Rynsin - Boston

    Metrowest, but close enough. \/

    There's an annual meet at Fidelis in Nashua, NH. I didn't make it last year.

    There was also a Boston meet in March at Ishcabibles apt that was real good too.

    I was just trying to collect names of people, see if there was enough interest in a summer meet. If we get 5 or 6 people I am sure we could find a date that works and central location.

    More than happy to host a mini meet sometime this summer if people want to make the trek up/down to Nashua.

    @JoshMorr Your dedication traveling from up yonder for that Boston meet was an inspiration to me. That said, I'm not so sure I'd be able to make it up to NH without winding up with a hefty cab fare. Guess I'd be more 50/50.

    Looks like we could have a decent turn out! @Ninja Pirate - can you manage 7 - 8 people? If you can - pick a date that works for you and we'll start there. I have a table and some extension cords / power strips.

    Its almost 2 hrs to Nashua or Boston for me, which is what I have to put up with living so far yonder. My wife grew up on the south shore until I transplanted her so I seem to make the trip down pretty often.

    Hoping to show off a few new toys from the last meet at Kyle's place in Boston...

    I got my SEX back up and running! Also, if @Ninja Pirate can't host something I'd be down to host another thing and have food and drinks this time

    I can handle around 10 people I reckon.

    Probably looking to do it early summer (June, early July) rather than later as my workload will be pretty hectic late July - Sep.

    That's also my headphone amp. What was wrong with yours? Have you ever used 6SN7GTB tubes with it?

    I shipped it from Illinois to MA and USPS must have smashed my package because it came in pieces and I just got around to repairing it. Is it stock? And I haven't experimented much with rolling.

    Nice! Would like to hear the sex. I have been waffeling over which beginner SET amp I should build, a SEX or a P Millet Jonokuchi.

    June sounds great to me - pick a saturday or sunday that works - I know I can make either work. Crossing my fingers but I should have the new black widow to have everyone try out.

    Yeah, works for me too! I actually just got a Mjolnir2 and if I'm lucky I'll have the ZMF amp in time.
