Previous Meeting Pgm Notes

Sunday, June 28, 2015
 

This was a great meeting! At first I didn’t think many people would attend as we had gotten a late start on the advertising. The breakthrough came when our friend Purk told me how to get on the front page of Head-Fi.org. His info worked and over the next few days a lot more people contacted us. We really had a great headphone meet with support from Joe Saxon of HeadphoneAudiophile.org, Alan Jones from HiFi Buys, and Stephen Mejias from Audioquest. (Our own Lee Scoggins was responsible for the HiFi Buys and Audioquest support!) Also, a number of our members came with equipment as well as many of the folks we had been talking with on Head-Fi.org. Overall, there was a lot of equipment and systems to which we could listen and also many conversations about the equipment and music.

 

This year I was able to get around to hear many of the setups and headphones. I missed the Oppos and a few others, but I really enjoyed some of the expensive planar headphones that were available. I confess, that I am basically a Sennheiser guy, but I really liked the HiFiMan and the Stax units available. I guess if I had to pick my favorite of the show it was Chuck’s ART Audio tube amp and older Stax Gamma 'phones! Really lovely sound. Everyone seemed to have a great time and there were over 40 in attendance… at least they signed in. I think there may have been more who didn’t sign in… possibly around 50 total.

 

We were thanked by most of the Head-Fi’ers for putting on this meet as there are no meets scheduled for the Atlanta area this year other than this one. After the meeting, several of us got together with the Head-Fi’ers and the consensus was that we should do it again next year, but name it so the headphone hobbyists would understand what we were doing. We are now looking into a bigger and better “meet” next year. I have talked with the gentleman who put on CanLanta 2013 and it is OK for us to use that name format. So, if you want to help us put together CanLanta 2016, give me a call. There will be lots of fun activities associated with putting on that meet, including contacting manufacturers and distributors to get them to attend!

 

For more details on this meeting, read Tom Horner’s Minutes as soon as they are available! You will be notified as usual.

 


  
 Next Meeting - ANNUAL PICNIC!!
Sunday, July 19, 2015 - 2 PM - 6 PM
 
 
To be held at the beautiful home of Tom and Dwana Horner. As usual, being audiophiles, we have our picnics inside, with lots of music available for listening! The club will once again provide the main course, picnic side dishes, and soft drinks. (There is a rumor it will be that great BBQ from David Jackson's Old Hickory House.) Attendees can bring salads, snacks, and desserts.
 
Come on out and hear Tom's "new " music room. Tom and other members of the club have contributed to some of the best sound you'll ever hear! You don't want to miss it!

Wait until you hear what we have planned for this month! The announcement will be emailed to all active members this Friday, July 10, 2015.

STAY TUNED!!!
