With the Phoenix, it doesn't sound as good with XLR as it does with the CAST connection. I'm still wondering how it will sound via XLR through other amps and I don't think I'll have my ß22 ready by then because I won't have the money to do the chassis.
I've been trying to hear this DAC since before CanJam. I want to compare it to the parasound unit, so I'd be using RCA to make it more comparable. I'll look around for some used XLRs though to see how big the jump is going from SE to balanced on that DAC.

I will probably be able to attend. I'll bring the B22 and AD2000's. XLR->trs and an spl meter will also come. JH13's will be there but they (probably) won't fit your ears.
If anybody wants to hear anything else in my sig, that's fine too, but the rest of the gear is not special.

At this point, about 60% chance I can come.

K1000 + Audio Note PS2E

DT880/K601/K501 + DNA Sonett

If anyone has portable headphone dac/amp other than Predator (e.g., pico) please bring. I find the predator has waaaay too much bass for the Westone 3. Sounds fantastic with the Grado 225s tho.

I'm also interested in any Grado's higher than 225, Sennheiser 600/650, AKG 701/2, Westone UM3x, AT ck100 (yeah, right!)

Oh yeah, and last but not least... I highly recommend Napa Valley Pizza and Pasta for lunch. BEST 4 cheese pizza you will have in your life... and if you don't agree, pizza's on me. On Newport Blvd near 19th St in Costa Mesa.

That sounds good! Do you know if they deliver? Would it be OK to have food and, uh, "refreshments" in the clubhouse? Enjoyed away from the gear, of course. I'd be more than happy to load up a few six packs along with the gear.

They don't deliver until 5pm. I'll run out and pick it up. Not sure about clubhouse rules. I'm really not into , so I'll leave that to someone else

Hopefully, I'm tempted to skip work and join you familiar faces...

Hmm...

Well, put me down as tentative for now:

Headphone: K1000, JH13 Pro

Amp: Manley Stingray, RSA Shadow(If it ships by then.)

Fantastic news Gary! I really hope you can make it as you have some of the gear (K1K, Stingray, ECD1) that I've been dying to hear!

I'm also going to have the new eXStatA DIY electrostatic amp in my rig for sure, and possibly the 4070 with another SRM-717. It should be helpful to get some impressions from you guys on how the eXStatA matches up to the Stax amps, and I bet some will like the 4070 a bunch.

Donald: Do tell about this special K1K amp

OP: Do you think you could edit your original post to have an updated gear list in order to attract more potential attendees?
post #28 of 136
Turns out I'll be bringing some of my equipment from home, so I should also have:
DAC/Amp: Beresford TC-7510
Portable Amp: Meier HEADSIX, old Headroom amp (Haven't used it in a long time, I'll update this to specify model when I get it from home)
Headphone: SR-60
Source: Creative Zen Vision:M 60GB, PS3, Laptop
I also plan on picking up 1 or 2 more headphones before the meet.

Hopefully I can make this one, I can probably bring along a few suprises myself
