IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 103

post #1531 of 1862

I've deliberately kept my nose out of that thread. What's been happening?

post #1532 of 1862

A lot of banter and discussion along with a lot of third party seller posts which is a huge no no. Curra shut down the thread twice and started new ones in an attempt to try an keep the rule breakers at bay. In the end he just gave up and locked the thread for good siting if people are just going to ignore the rules then why bother

I'm sure the Black Friday craziness contributed to it...

Future Shop has a Cyber Monday deal on Senn PX-100ii.  $50.  That's great bang for buck, in Canada anyway.

post #1535 of 1862

That's a really good price... so the question is: do I need a second one?

post #1536 of 1862

I don't really need them, but I'm thinking of getting a set.  They sounded really good at our first Wpg. get-together, and I think they'd be more practical at work than my KSC75.

The PX-100 were my first set that I was super satisfied with. My very first "hifi" headphones were the Grado SR80, but I was never to keen on them.

 

Sadly, I no longer have my original PX-100...

For me, the advantages are that they are very nice-sounding, and really easy to put on and take off (my work doesn't lend itself to long listening sessions).  I'd love to have something really hi-fi at work, but really, I need something I can throw on my desk roughly when someone comes into my office to see me.

amazon.ca had a killer deal on the HD598 a few days ago... $140, but it was sold out right away

Hey guys, what do you think about doing a meet sometime around end of Feb or beginning of March?

I'm cool with it as long as you don't mind a grubby 14-year old with sub-par headphones hanging about.

post #1542 of 1862

I might be in Winnipeg on the weekend of Feb. 21, but don't plan around me, because I'm usually too busy to do anything social when I'm in town.

It can't be a clothing-optional gathering this time if there's a minor coming, but that shouldn't be a problem I guess.

And if I whip out the bbq again, does that make it a sausage-sausage fest?   :blink:
 

post #1544 of 1862

Anyone have any new gear?  I don't, unfortunately.

post #1545 of 1862

New stuff...

- Wadia 121 (balanced dac)

- Nuforce HA-200 (monoblock balanced headphone amp... haven't even wired it up yet)

- FiiO e17 (portable dac/amp)

- FiiO a1 (mini speaker amp)

- Beyer DT770 with transplanted COP drivers.

- Beyer DT860... why do I have so many Beyers? I don't even like them
