Oh boy, today's meet was jolly good fun. First off, I was very impressed by Ingo's 1212M -> HeadFive setup, listening to it with my HD650 the sound was tighter and more extended on both ends than I was used to on the LDII+, that setup really sang with rock 'n roll (oh, that SS bass).
Steve's new Microstack is surprisingly small (and the power supplies surprisingly large). To me the MicroAmp sounded pleasantly smooth and neutral out of the DAP, I'm sure it'll sound even better out of a dedicated DAC, I can't wait till our next meet to try it with the MicroDAC!
Again, thanks to Steve for being a wonderful host and to MaGG and Ingo for their awesome company. It was great getting to know you guys and I'll say, I think you guys are pretty cool.
