I have not seen or heard the 800's in person yet, myself.
I am still sold on the speaker route. And... I went and bought the HD-800s anyway.

These things happen.

Great news!

I was a little let down by the sound of the one he had in LA. I'm glad it wasn't the final-final. That's show biz though. Even when you know that it isn't ready for prime time, when the curtain goes up,.. it's time ta dance!

Jack should be picking up a lot of the sales that would've gone to SinglePower IMHO. The voicing is similar but the build is in a whole different league.
A real pro!

My HD-800 and HF-2 will be there. I don't want to drive them all the way to San Francisco if you're not going to show up, so you better be there.
Sweet!

Which I admit probably makes going to this meet a bad idea since I should be looking at getting a new car rather then a new pair of headphones but I just can't resist.
Hopefully a Marin County member can hook you up there are 3 or 4 folks up that way potentially. You may need to meet them somewhere though to make it easy on both of you, I hope you can come.

Put me down as tentative. My wife's bday is 8/6 so I need to let her know she will be going to headphone meet. It's a good thing our couch is comfortable.

Is it too early to ask that I don't have a car and would really appreciate it if somebody coming from San Francisco give me a ride (with some trunk room because I plan to bring some serious equipment )? Anybody nice enough to do so will get a pair of custom interconnects. Unless of course it's my buddy rhythmdevils, he gets a special present

I am more than happy to give you a lift. I have a mini van but live in Cupertino. It will be easier for someone who lives in the city to drive you. At least you know that you have a back up.
If it happens, buy me a drink instead!

ok i am locking in the hotel on Monday with a deposit so we are definite for 8/8 at the Doubletree in Burlingame. I'm going to see if we can get a local audio dealer or two to attend given the interest in dacs recently.

Sweet I need to let Audeze know I think they are sending one of their guys up. Product should have shipped by then... very tempted to up my order to 2 pairs

No way that things going bye-bye ;p He's a Parasound convert now! (Though to be fair the Parasound he has doesn't spank it, but it does better in a few areas including detail but isn't as airy and some other random stuff but it was only 90 bucks).

Assuming the HF-2 actually ships before August 8, of course.

The HD-800 will be there - I've got it on right now.

There are a few HF2s in circulation up here so no worries on that front
