I agree. Thank you Erikzen and everyone who helped, especially those who donated time and products to pay for the meet.

It was a pleasure to see some familiar faces and meet some great people today.

I now have a headphone stand.
Yikes did a great job with the auction.

I Look forward to seeing you all again.

I just posted some impressions of the LCD2 vs HE5 in the LCD2 thread.

Also, Did anyone find a 24 V wallwart? I was in the back left corner. I now have no way to power my DAC.

It was great meeting you all. This was my first meet and I will say I will not be my last. Maybe I will think about bringing a portion of my home rig next time.

A few things I really liked were in no particular order...

Ray Samuels setups were my first listen. I love my shadow and I really really love the full sized amp he had set up...I believe it was the thunderbolt. WOW. It did teh tube thing so well.

I also enjoyed the Red Wine setup as well...they had the onkyo ipod dock not yet available going into the Isabellina amp/da combo. This amp/da combo had somewhat of a british sound to me so I was a bit partial to it...ok very partial to it. I would attribute the sound to the clean power it provides. The Isabellina is battery powered only. The battery lasts for the whole day running the dock then charges when you turn it off at night. Brilliant.

Also noteworthy at RWA was the onkyo dock...this doesn't have the sex appeal the Wadia dock has but it sounds identical has more features for syncing and integrating and is a fraction of the price.

I was also able to hear the HD800s and do a side by side with the HD350s there. The 800s are leaps and bounds better...they have a better soundstage, better control in the base, better mids, and better rhythm.

HiFiMan also had his offerings and I will say his player sounds great as does his little tube amp. The portable player, not available yet, is a bit large and reminds me in shape and size and feel of a vintage cassette walkman and sounded great. He had his new IEMS attached. They were half price at the show but even at the $199 msrp they sound great for the price point. Needless to say I walked away with a pair and don't regret it one bit! His small tube amp (I cant remember the name) was also a real nice product. He had it attached to the HD800s and his own HE-5s...which were a nice pairing either way.

These are my first impressions and ramblings...I will probably post more later and thanks for welcoming a n00b!!!!
