    EDIT: MEET IS ON!!! It's a ZMFestivus for the rest of us!
    Sunday Nov. 10, 2019 10am @ChaChaRealSmooth's place. Mark your calendars and contact him via PM to get his address.

    Also, please RSVP using the poll to get a proper head count. And food/drinks is welcome/appreciated, comment in the thread if you are able to contribute.


    Anyone interested in meeting up in the near future? I mentioned this in the ZMF Verite closed loaner thread that I have all ZMF dynamics except Eikon on hand and I would love to let others get a chance to hear them. I know Verite closed has a lot of hype right now and very few opportunities for people to get their ears on them. So anyone want to get our own ZMFestivus happening? Also, @Inoculator graciously offered to ship down his Eikon to complete the lineup.

    I live in San Diego in a small 1 bdrm apt so my place isn't ideal for a large group gathering. Though there's a standing offer for anyone to come by my place to audition any of my gear (see my signature), just hit me up. I'd be willing to drive up my gear to Orange County or even LA area if someone wants to host a meet. Sometime before the holidays would probably be best chance to include the most people. Reply here if you are interested in hosting or attending.

    This is a super cool idea, as I was getting serious FOMO from seeing pics in the recent ZMFestivus. I don't think I can afford to drive up and down San Diego for a meet due to my studying schedule, but would love to participate if there's one in LA! I can bring my Verite and ECP 3F/ Ravenswood for anyone who wants to hear the combo. I think there was already some talk of a small SBAF meet in LA in the near future right @ChaChaRealSmooth ??

    Yeah I recognize there's probably not a lot of people this far south, so like I said, I'm totally willing to the make the drive to LA if there's interest and someone that can host. The only bad weekends for me are 10/26-27 and 11/16-17. Other than that I'm pretty clear up through xmas.

    I would also be super interested in hearing the 3F Ravenswood.

    Could potentially use my place (I live in OC/LA county border). I'll have to clear it with family first.

    Just let me know a date

    @I_want_all_the_tacos fosho, I can bring the amp for ya :)

    @ChaChaRealSmooth My schedule is pretty flexible. I'll try to make time for whichever date is chosen. I just need to study a little extra couple days before the event.

    maybe we should make a poll to get a rough headcount and possible dates?

    It should be mentioned that if I host, I do have a small dog. Full disclosure in case of allergies, general hatred towards animals, etc.

    Haha oh man that's quite the undertaking. But I am a data nerd so I just might do it.

    So it seems like 11/3 and 11/10 are the best dates so far. @ChaChaRealSmooth are these a good date for you and your family? I know you're sick and all right now so no rush :) I just don't want this possible meet up to lose momentum

    @netforce Hey Alan, is it possible for you to bring some stuff from TSAV like the SR1a and maybe Utopia? I've been dying to try the Raal headphone for a while, but haven't had the time to drive to

    Think it should be fine since they are fairly small and portable/have travel cases. Would we have an amp to drive the Raal? I don't mind lugging my Vidar out to wherever just the guy is heavy.

    I don't have any amp capable of powering the Raal. Only have a single Aegir.

    Yeah I agree, those 2 dates were the ones I have been eyeing. I guess I am personally in favor of Sunday 11/3 because I'm going up to LA on that previous Saturday night for a Mac Ayres concert and I'll be staying overnight in either LA/OC so I'll be up that way if we meet on Sunday.

    And thanks for asking Alan about SR1a...I was meaning to ask that same question, that is the one piece of gear I have dying to hear. Thanks Alan for agreeing to accommodate!

    Anyone else interested in joining us? I know there's usually more socal people around here and it doesn't seem like a meet has happened in a while.

    Some of the dates voted on are approaching; are there any updates to the plan? If I'm hosting, I'd really like to know at least a week in advance since it'll be hard for me to adjust my work schedule to accommodate with a shorter notice.

    How is 11/3 11/10 for a tentative date for this? That's far enough ahead for me to request some time off, and also have the house ready for the meet.

    Right now, I think you've got the only proposed venue. If you're kind enough to still offer house I think you should give the final OK as far as date (since it's your home).

    Based on the size of your house how many people do you think would fit?

    I think up to 7 members, not including myself, should be pretty comfortable. I can extend the table to hold all the gear.

    I mistyped; actually I'd prefer having it 11/10. Updated my above post to reflect this.

    Thanks for hosting us, I'm really looking forward to meeting you guys and the gear list among this small group is still really solid.

    It looks like Sunday 11/10 also got the most votes as well, so let's go ahead and lock that in. Go ahead and pick a time slot that would work for you. And not sure how you want to distribute your address/contact info, maybe have everyone PM you for that?
