there is a possibility of a high-end headphone and digital source expo in Auckland later this year (2010). Grado PS1000, Ultrasone Edition 8, maybe HD800 along with some digital source to match.
Will keep you posted.
Good to see so many Kiwis on here. I'm in Christchurch so couldn't make the Aukland meet sorry, but if there was ever a meet down here I'd be interested and I'd happily offer up my flat. I'm currently limited on gears, ATH-M50 headphones, AMB Mini^3 amp, GrubDAC, sansa clip+ and a loads of music but I've currently got a few projects on the go including some wooden HPs using HD650 drivers that I hope to have finished by then end of Jan.
Newcomer here, forgive me for hijacking an old thread...
Would anybodies in NZ be interested in meeting sometime in the not too distant future. I am interested in listening to some more headphones and amps and talking gear and such. I have some K701's and LCD-2's but I'd love to listen to some HifiMans and some Grados and if anyone has a stax system I'd be very keen. But it's be fun just to meet people whatever the gear.
I can travel anywhere in NZ so long as a few people are interested. Cheers!
Im very new to being an audiophile, but id be keen to meet like minded people, and very keen to hear some 'full setups'.
Currently listening to my grado sr80i powered either from my PCs sound card or my Clip+, also have a freshly built CMOY.
plan to buy a desktop amp and dac so would be great to hear some higher end gear in person.
I live in wellington, so im biased towards it as the location, but I could always travel a bit (train/ferry/bus) to get there if there was enough interest in another location.
Just out of interest, how did the other meet ups go? (I presume they went ahead).
I'm from Auckland. Would be keen on a meetup of some sort to hear different gear combos. I've only really heard the (limited) number of headphones I've owned so would be really interesting hearing differences between amps/dacs/hps. Especially keen to hear some hd800's as compared to my 650's.
I'm keen. I can bring a couple of pairs of balanced HD800s, balanced AKG702s, A couple of A-g Reference 7.1 DACs, A Reference 7HE DAC and a NFB7.1 DAC and Amps. My Stax SR009s should be here shortly.
Auckland would suit me well. I'm in the Waikato so not too long a drive.
