    Schiitcago: Rumble in the Windy City!


    Welcome to the September Chicago Area meetup!

    Schiit has very generously agreed to send us their SchiitKit, help us get a space, and have a great time!


    Time: Sunday September 17th, 2-6pm

    Location: 5925 N Ravenswood Chicago, IL 60660



    We have a few exciting attractions in store:

    - Multiple headphone setups displaying Schiit gear Comprising their entire line with the sole exception of ragnarok)

    - Zach Mehrbach of ZMF will be there with his headphones and awesome personality

    - Two-channel gear on display! Come hear Vidar and a selection of excellent speakers

    - Catered refreshments (courtesy Schiit!)

    - A selection of ifi headphone amps and DACs.

    The location is the very cool Experimental Sound Studio, an art space and recording studio in Ravenswood Chicago. The space is fun, full of music, and you can check it out at the link below. Parking is available on the street around the studio. If you are coming from downtown, there is multiple bus and metra options to get you a short walk away from the studio. We hope to see you there!


    Please RSVP here if you are coming, and with what gear (if any) you’d like to bring. Please feel free to invite your friends and family!

    I can bring my TH900 MK2's. I'd love to hear them up against Zach's dynamics.

    I can definitely come down to the city on the 17th. I plan on bringing my LCD-2 (2016).

    Currently, I'm having an EHHA Rev A amplifier built for me. I’m hoping that it will be completed and in my hands before the date of the meet; if everything goes smoothly, then I will be bringing the EHHA, along with a Schiit Bifrost.

    Finally posted this in the Chicago area meet thread. Someone should have told me about it.

    I'll be there.

    Interesting that you are having this at ESS. I've done some projects with them and gave two workshop there, been involved with them since 1990, although haven't done anything with them for like 10 years.

    I might bring an amp or two that I built.

    It will be terrible having try so many wines to find the Illinois Wine we should to take home, though someone has to do it. :)
