I attended the big LA meet once in 2009. But have only gone to some local meets ever since. Head-fi meets have changed dramatically over the years from just people bringing their gear to show and listen, to a full blown commercial trade show. There is very little left in it for DIYers, unfortunately.

head-fi is borderline hostile to DIY, anyway.

like amb, I only go to local shows that are DIY-friendly. and even the headfi local shows are mostly a 'who can outspend the other guy' contest ;(

Yeah I know that's a bummer that cjam is like CES. I think the hostility has cooled down, but the damage to the community is done.

Diy in general seems slow since niche is so commercialized now.
