OK, there's just so much speculation around these "new" flagship sennheiser headphones it makes me smile whenever the subjects mentioned. I am interested as well, but for the life of me I don't why I still currently think about selling my HD650s in anticipation for something that hasn't even been release and might be a year if not more away. If at HF2 I think we would have heard by now too.
TY 909!!!

Have a nice day!

Wow, a lot of new amps unveiled. I'm really curious about Singlepower's new SS amp, though. Anyone know a rough price range?

Also, I'm assuming there will be thorough video footage of this meet (particularly of the amp manufacturers panel) like last year?

Sleestack ordered a Singlepower SS. If he doesn't mind, he'll be able to enlighten us with the rough price. I seem to remember him mentioning it some time ago. It was a lot

WHAT?!?! Where were the 10$ docks?!?! WTF!!!

Are there any left? I think I am coming back tomorrow, so maybe I can pick one up.

EDIT: Oh, Impressions...

It was AMAZING.

I was very impressed by the Denon cans, and the K340's were great. The orpheus was not my cup of tea (which I was shocked by) and I loved everything from stax, the basic setup will definitely be my next purchase. I didn't get a very good chance to listen to Todds new amp, but would like to tomorrow. The shure 530 was a blast to listen to. My first experience with the K1000's was a great one, if I were able to use those, I would almost definitely start saving for a pair.

Probably the coolest thing I saw was the new ALO Grado Woodies (yes, it is official, and they sound GREAT)

I found out my amp SUCKS for my Grados, I also found out I pronounce Grado wrong (Graydo, not Grahdo), and I wish I could have tried an RA1, but much to my dismay, there wasn't one there.

I was very impressed by the woo3, it paired great with my cans imo.

I didn't get to try the headroom desktop speaker setup, but it looks really cool, hopefully I can try it tommorow. The new desktop portable (dac/amp combo) is awesome, sounds great and is extremely functional, looks like we have a new Aria/Opera competitor.

Ray's new amp (the apache) was quite impressive, especially when paired with the balanced PS1's he had with him. :-o

The new singlepower mini was awesome (it's a mini tube amp), great sound in a tiny package.

It was amazing. I wasn't planning on going back, due to school related stuff, but I decided I can put it of, I am definitely going back tomorrow!

Had a great time meeting you guys for the first time. Here are some pics I took.
Ray Samuels is a great guy, he brought some beautiful equipment and his beautiful wife.



TTVJ introducing Steve Hoffman


Steve Hoffman did an astounding job regaling us with his tales and tunes


Yours truly showing off my Cowon D2 with my head fest skin from Blessingx. Sorry he couldn't make it.

Yup, he said they have been married 20 years. I told him I had only been married 33 years. I may go back tomorrow. Gotta pick up up all the free stuff I won. I hope.

Ya, why not? I just gave it the UN-OFFICIAL title as a joke. But it was the first impressions thread started, and as far as I know, the only one so for, so it's official. I'll change the title.

For some reason I've always liked bands that had the guts to release "Worst Hits" albulms, so the UN-OFFICIAL thread title was intended to follow along those lines.

I expect there to be a flood of posts and pictures within the next two days. So far it's actually been pretty slow in terms of pictures.

Wish I could be there, but at least it's nice weather on the East coast!

Enjoy day two!

Has anyone there had a chance to listen to the Channel Islands Audio VHP-2 headphone amp?

lol, I like that reasoning. I suggest a compromise: The Official Unofficial Impressions Thread.

EDIT: Also, watch out for that damn guitar game; I almost had a nervous breakdown after playing it for 15 seconds at the NYC meet.

Looks like you guys are having a great time. Can't wait to see more pics of the various rooms. After attending the first and missing this one... it is pretty much certain I will be at the third.

We had a little micro meet today [pixelpusher, looser101 and I] to help with the 'International meet anxiety'. Did some tube rolling and found out that my amp can drive balanced PS-1's quite well.
