What about a biblical name like "Duderonomy"?

The holyness association can also be factored in with the underware line.

Anyone bringing a Rudistor amp? Like an RPX-33 or an RPX-100? Thanks.
post #168 of 678
Dang. I go off to work for a couple days and this thread is filled with two new pages of expected drivel. I shall redirect:

Gear. I have nothing new that I know about, and just sold my Darth Beyers, stock K340s, and Hornet, so I'll have even less. I just ordered the TakeT, but based on projected waiting time, Gene's may be the only one in attendence. The Diablo was reported to have been shipped last week, but no surprises here......nada. Thrice has modded my Canamp by replacing the garbage power cord and putting black gates in the power supply. Per his pm: "BTW, that amp with a pair of Sennheiser HD201...has no business whatsoever sounding THAT good. I think you'll like it." If true to my ears, I'll be selling either my PRII or SR-71 or both. So, to cut to the chase, here's what I'll definitely bring:

Headphones:

K1000 (stock/Equinox tail)
MDR-R10
K340s (maybe...if I keep delaying sending them to Larry for retermination)
HD650
HD600

Amps:

Extreme Platinum
Heed Canamp
Heed Obelisk integrated
FirstWatt F1
Larocco PRII (maybe)
SR-71 (maybe)

Sources:

Exemplar Denon 2900
Lector 0.6T
imod
ipod (photo and nano)
MacBook Pro (looking to try out DACs)

Should I bring...

For those interested, here is the stuff I'll be dragging along. I know there are some common components, so tell me if I can leave it at home:
  • HD650 (stock)
  • HD600 (full Larry mod, cable and closed wood)
  • SR-325i (full Larry mod)
  • RS-1 (stock)
  • PX-100
  • Stello DAC
  • Manley SkipJack (might come in handy)
  • HeadRoom Cosmic Reference '04 w/ BS One
  • Meier Audio Aria
  • Dared MP-5 (no extra tubes...)
  • AKG-701
  • DiMarzio ICs
  • Zu Power Cable(s)
  • SR-60
  • headphone splitters (one made by Larry) and diverse other cables

As you can tell from the list I will not be bringing along any significant source, maybe my iPod, so I'll be looking forward to trying some of your stuff if the opportunity presents itself.

If you can manage, I'd be interested in the SR-71, so tag it along if you have it. Also, if you can think of anything else that may be of value over the weekend, let me know (pm).

Cheers,
Markus

...the Larocco would be awsome to try too!

Add a Rockhopper Mini³ to my list! Thrice must have accidentally dropped one in the Canamp box, and he's never getting it back. I've been listening now for about an hour with my Yuin Pk1s, and am suitably impressed, orange light and all. This is a no-brainer for someone looking for a portable amp in this price-range, and even above. Stomps the Go-Vibes I've heard. Gotta find where I hid my adapters so I can try it out on my full-sized cans. THANKS, STEPHAN!!!!!!! You will not be buying your own Mind Erasers at the meet!

So that's where that went

Glad you like it.

Yup. I'll also bring the SR-71 you asked for in the other post and the Larocco. Miguel's PRII is different from mine, so it will be a nice to compare them.

Now we're cooking! I am very much looking forward to hearing all of the above. Hopefully some of the things I am bringing along will be of interest as well. Thanks!!!

It will be definitely interesting to hear the diff between HD600s. I'm also interested in the Stello.

Worried about Mike.

Not only is he selling his speakers, look what he has done to his K1000s!!!!! Sacrilege, I tell ya!

Sacrilege? I don't think so. This is a very special headphone hanger. It was a chair from my sons room when he was born. I couldn't figure out to do with it so it's my new headphone hanger.

post #179 of 678
What a combo. Beer, Fender, and a giraffe - I should look around my son's room to see if I find something as handy as that!
post #180 of 678
This is a proper K1000 stand:



not some mutlicolored giraffe son's chair thingy. Even when factoring in the sentimental value, it just ain't right.
