    LATEST UPDATE: There will be a raffle at this meet! The prize? A little Schiit stack- a Magni 3 and Modi 2 (yes, both together). Tickets are $10 each, limit two (2) per person to preserve fairness.

    Date & Time:
    Saturday February 10th, 2018


    Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix/Avondale
    11460 W Hilton Way
    Avondale, AZ 85323

    *Wifi Password is HGI123*

    *Please note the slightly different starting and ending times. For whom it may concern, setup start time will be the same as the Oct 21st meet*

    Vendors and all sorts of gear welcome yadda yadda yadda. Maybe it's too soon, but hey! Our last meet was absolutely fantastic; let's make this one even better! Our friends at Schiit will be sponsoring the event once again :) We will be meeting in the same space as last time.

    At lunch time, attendees should note that there is a Culver's and a Ruby Tuesday's in the same parking lot, as well as a plethora of places near the i10/101 intersection. However, there will be complimentary snack items at the meet. PLEASE ENSURE YOUR HANDS ARE CLEAN AND DRY BEFORE PROCEEDING TO ANY AUDIO EQUIPMENT(and the food itself, for that matter). Anyway, members will be able to enjoy a light dosage of crackers, cheese, fruit, and a few cookies on-site. Water, napkins, and moist towelettes will be provided. It should also be noted that the hotel has it's own restaurant/bar area, which is open for breakfast until 11AM(?), and re-opens at 5PM for dinner (closed during lunch).

    Finally, there will be another raffle! The prize will be a little Schiit Stack- a Schiit Magni 3 amp and Schiit Modi 2 DAC, together. Tickets are $10 each, with a limit of two (2) tickets per person.

    Without further adieu, here is the list of juicy audio bits! Please let us know what gear you'll be bringing, and it'll be placed below.

    I *still* need to listen to that "boring" stack. Closest thing I've heard is the Gustard H10, the supposed Chinese Violectric clone.

    Right on guys. Hell, I’m ready next week.
    This last meet was so awesome and I believe this next one will be even better. For
    Me it’ll be so much better just because I finally got to meet everyone, hang out and enjoy the great company and gear.

    Say, am I crazy to say that I want to try and get Senn, Beyer, and Fostex in on this? :) alongside the usual suspects, of course.

    That’s incredible news. Knowing that ahead of time ensures the next 2 meets will be as good if not better then the last. Lots on planning ahead in the upcoming months. Come oooooon April!
  11. Astral Abyss
    I'm in! Looking forward to hanging out with you all again. The last meet was a lot of fun.
  12. funch
    I be in.

    Okay everyone, the room at the Hilton Garden Inn is once again reserved, however we did have to move the date back one month to February 10th, 2018. The meet time will be from 10AM to 6PM (setup time is the same as last meet, for those who are aware).

    Oh darn! We have to do it a month early. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Totally unrelated to the meet, but hoping Phoenix people are sub'd to this thread. Anyone have a Mojo that they'd be willing to part with for a week or so? I'm interested in giving one a test drive before dropping the cash. More than happy to provide collateral, beers, pizza, or jazz cabbage in exchange.

    Long shot, but figured I'd give it a try!
