I don't want to take this thread too far off track, but yeah it does have TOSlink and NOS = non-oversampling. There's plenty of discussions on NOS DACs in the source forum, the Ack! and Scott Nixon are two popular US built NOS DACs.

I'll put a notice in the meets forum later tonight and bump with the link - otherwise would like to keep this thread from being moved so Mr. mishkakrisa might get a few more suggestions.

Meet!

Guys, started a thread for a San Diego meet here.

Hmm, are there any headphone shops around the greater Los Angeles area? I don't even know where to begin, and I figure since there's already a thread about it, no sense in starting another one.

The problem with Audio-Technica is all their good headphones are not sold in the US.

Didn't find a lot when I was there before Chistmas last year :-(
Stereo Unlimited was nice tho, except they carry only Grado's when it comes to headphones... I almost ended up with a pair of PS1000's...

I saw the DT770 on display at Guitar Center a while back.  I don't know if they have the DT990.  They had a rack full of headphones hooked up to an ipod, but the DT770 was the best headphone there.

 

The Magnolia store at Best Buy has a couple of decent cans (Momentum, K550, HD700) on display at the Mission Valley store. 

 

Fry's sales headphones, but their stuff is pretty much crap (Bose and Beats).  They do have one or two okay models (Klipsch, Shure, Sony) - nothing high end though. 

 

Dan (Mad Dogs) lives in San Diego...maybe you can convince him to buy him a drink...and hopefully he will bring a pair of his headphones along.  biggrin.gif

 

 

I almost forgot, if you want to listen to a couple of really good IEMs, the Heir Audio distributor lives in San Diego.

Yea i already check out those places, Guitar Center, Frys, Best buy, etc. Guitar Center doesnt hvae that many headphones, I already tried the DT 770 there. Best buy and Fry's don't have anything for audiophile , they all sell entry level headphones that are really cheap, they're mainly for computer stuff, not audio. Who is Dan Mad Dogs? some random guy on Headfi? sorry dont really know him.

Did you try the Magnolia room at the Fashion Valley Best Buy?  They do have some audiophile headphones there that you can actually audition.

It's like their high-end equipment section.  Not all stores have a Magnolia room (I think), and not all Magnolia rooms have equipment you can audition.

 

The Mission Valley store has the best equipment on display (you can actually listen to the Sennheiser HD700 there).   The one in Chula Vista is just okay.   In other Magnolia rooms they don't have a place where you can audition the headphones.   Some stores don't stock the models other stores do.  For instance, the Chula Vista store has the DT1350 in stock, but the Mission Valley location does not.

 

 

The Mission Valley Magnolia room is all the way in the back of the store.
