Anyone know who's selling them?  Maybe they'd be interested in coming to a meet...

 

EDIT: I just sent him/her an invite message, as well as the other person who posted a wanted ad for LCD-2.

 

I just got a part-time job to supplement the farming and my wife's contract work, so I might be able to buy some new gear reasonably soon.  I'm thinking Stax Lambda.

 

I have a feeling the Qualia seller might be a scammer. No feedback, no pics, and their history used to show another sold Qualia (not there anymore) which I highly doubt. I'd sent two messages in the past for an audition and more information and never got a reply. 

 

There's a guy with a Sony V7 that's interesting.

Anyone up for a mini-meet this weekend? I've got some rather ridiculous stuff piled up on the table at the moment. I'd also like to borrow a high impedance Senn or Beyer for a review I'm writing.

I'll be in Winnipeg Dec. 8 - 14, and would love to get together for a meet then - maybe the evening of Dec. 9?  I'll be bringing my HD600s, uDac, and Sony D-5A pcdp - maybe a few other toys too.

 

I'll also be in Wpg. on Nov. 24-25, but won't have time for a proper meet.  I could lend you my HD600 at that time, Nathan, especially if you wanted to lend out the HE-6 (or something else I suppose) for a couple weeks.  evil_smiley.gif  

 

The guy looking for an LCD-2 on CAM, Derek, responded to my email, and I think he's going to post here as soon as I get back to him with the link to the thread (forgot to provide the link in my first email).

Wow, that's a lot of gear that I've been hoping to get to hear someday!  Particularly the Lambdas.

 

Welcome, Derek.  Hope to meet you in the flesh soon.

Setting a meet tentatively for Dec 9 sounds like a plan.

 

Hey Derek, I've added you to my list of contacts. I'm sort of the default guy for organizing meets around here.

 

 

The big toys I've currently got on my table are the Nuforce DAC-100 (dac and amp) and HAP-100 (preamp and amp), and Hifiman HE-6, plus everything else in my profile. Man I really gotta pare this stuff down too. Looking to downgrade if anything. I was perfectly happy muddling around in mid-fi, then suddenly I'm staring down the barrel of these big toys and wondering what the heck happened...

It's called upgraditous and it happens to the best of us. In the next few weeks I'll be getting rid of some stuff also.

It's a list that needs to get smaller, that's for sure.... I have the Duet... although I'd like a Touch so I can play higher rez files.

Hey guys, so I'm having a mini-meet this Sunday (Nov 11) at noon with asqw to try out his LCD-2 with Bifrost/Lyr and compare vs the HE-6.

 

Anyone else want to join in on the fun? This was the showdown that never happened in September.

I can also bring my sons Valhalla and HD598s if anybody is interested.

post #973 of 1869

I've got an HD595 that'll be interesting to compare!

post #974 of 1869

I just picked up this hobby earlier in September, and although my time is currently being consumed by university I may be interested in trying some more headphone gear. I recently purchased the Sennheiser HD 598, and I noticed someone else owns it so I won't be bringing anything new to the table. However it is nice to know there are others in Winnipeg that enjoy headphones.

post #975 of 1869

I'm going to try and make the meet Sunday. If I'm able to make it anyone interested in hearing the V-MODA M-100 headphone? I'll bring it along if anyone is interested.
