Thanks Voltron - and I can see what you mean about the wallet already! I had already broached the possibility - and price - of perhaps getting UE-10s with my wife (surprisingly) without major upset. (It probably helps that I just turned 40 and haven't talked AT ALL about buying a sports car ) But I haven't used IEMs before so maybe I need to start out with a cheaper pair (LiveWires or SuperFreqs?) to see if I can live with them. And while that will be very useful, maybe it would be better for home listening to get a decent pair of more traditional cans as well. And a decent amp really lifts the experience into another realm...and portable amp requirements are very different from home amp requirements...
Mazz, perhaps you might want to start out with some very good iems, eg. shure e5x0, etymotics, ue 5s or better yet triple.fis, westone um2s, altec lansing etc etc before jumping on customs or rather than starting with the cheap units, getting excited and then working your way up the food chain.
as far as sport cars go, one approach is to start talking about motorcycles first, then 'compromise' with the sports car.

Thanks tyrion!

I'm not going to need a room - I'm at a hotel near the work conference (maybe 15 minutes drive away) for the full week and a bit. I don't have the stamina to change hotels for the weekend so I'll commute down to CanJam.

Did anyone invite Xin? Maybe he could personally deliver some Reference amps.

I'm going tomorrow, but I probably won't be able to make it Sunday even though I live like 20 minutes from the Embassy hotel.

I'm excited, it's going to be my first meet.

Looking forward to hear all the amazing gear you all have!

I'm bringing my DT880s.
