IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 117

post #1741 of 1858

So I've gone today to the store to listen these Shure's and they sound too high, without the bottom. Completely not my taste.

 

I took the ATH-M30X, M35, M40X, M50 and M50X and listened to all. I decided for M50X.

M30X, M35 sound very light, not much power in it. M40X sound quite powerful, slightly lighter than M50X (on Mac OSX I had to give them one more level UP on system volume), but the lows are not really interesting (it's very similar to M50X but without that much power, not cleaner in any way, just quieter). The old M50's are loud but they lack of lows and the treble is too distorted.

M50X have power, they're loud, lows a little bit too charged, mids are quite flat and clean, highs are clean (but as I said before a little bit calmer than Grados).

I will EQ these in home studio, and should be nice.

 

For outdoor use they are also perfect.

 

I also listened to AKG K701 - nice reference sound!

Which store did you go to, Ernest?

So it looks like its gonna rain sunday. So, Nathan are we still having it at your place if it rains?

post #1745 of 1858

We'll have to play it by ear; maybe relocate to my parent's place if it rains. I don't have enough space indoors at my house to host (my house is practically more walls than space, chalk it up to 60's compartmentalized design... I want to tear out the walls between the kitchen and dining room to open things up, but that's a project for way in the future).

 

Hopefully it rains itself out in the next couple days.

I will be back in WPG on saturday evening, so if there's something going on on sunday, I would like to meet You :)

Do you need me to bring a folding table? I have a 6 foot long 1.5 foot deep one.

Also, I am still digging around looking for the headset but so far have not been able to find them.
post #1748 of 1858

I have two folding tables; that's probably enough. No worries if you can't find the headset; it's a very minor thing.

Ok I am doing final packing for meet (I am going over directly from an overnight at friends house on Sunday).

I am bringing:

 

Grado HF-2

Senn HD800 

Denon D5000 

Rega Dac

Schiit Bifrost

Schiit Lyr

Yulong DA8

Yulong A28

Violectric V200.

 

I have only one source I can bring (my Squeezebox w/ 40 albums in it),which will be used with the Yulong stack.

Nathan do you have a source I could hook up to the Schiit stack?

My only source will be an iBasso DX90. What do you guys usually use for sources at these meets? What about power supply? Also, with Viper's DA8, is there any point in bringing mine?

More the merrier!
Mine will be anchored to the a28 and v200 full time so another da8 might not be bad if ppl want to try it with other gear..
Good point about power supply. Should we bring any power bars? Will we blow Nathan's fuse box with all these rigs? :P

Look at all the gear everyone is bringing.  Sadly, I have nothing to offer, as those who already met know.  I think I have a pair of Etymotics ER-4S?  I can't remember, I bought them to use for a trip but, never used them and forgot what trip I was suppose to use them for.  I do have the ODAC, somewhere...AKG 240M 600ohm headphones, fostex T50RP and probably misc IEMS lying around.  I guess I shall just bring some snacks.

My source will be my laptop and whatever I can plug into it. I'll have my Echo2 usb dac, and probably my Nuforce HDP (in the big triple stack). I should have a Sansa Fuze and Clip+ somewhere as well.

 

I don't have any "fancy" power, just several mid-grade APC surge protectors*, then a few cheap home depot brand stuff. If people want to bring power bars, an extra one or two wouldn't hurt.

*basically these: http://www.amazon.com/APC-11-Outlet-3020J-Surge-Protector/dp/B0012YFXSW

got them at costco for $20 which is a great price for them

 

Velomane, if you could bring your DA8 then I'd like to hook that up to my monoblocks at some point. Can the drivers be installed without having the DA8 plugged in?

 

For anyone who wants to try my Echo2 dac, you can get the drivers here: http://echoaudio.com/products/echo-2#downloads

 

 

Right now I'm hoping the weather rains itself out tonight and tomorrow so it'll clear by Sunday. Even if it rains, we could still do it in my garage. Either that or relocate to my parent's house... but for now plan for the garage unless it's a monsoon.

HP2 is gone to Ian.  Forgot about the electret, they are somewhere but, I doubt there will be any interest in them.
