Nice pics, Ari! What did you do to mod your ESP950's like that?

Any impressions/comparisons to report?

That's it? Looks like you guys were sitting around watching football with headphones on, not having a meet. I'm not sure you even formed any impressions.

I am hoping its because they have so very many impressions that we haven't heard anything. Its definitely a huge opportunity.

Pictures say a thousand words. We had a blast.
C'mon, we had 3 of the nicest stat amps in current day existence, we set it up so that we could listen to the same song from the Meridian using the tape loop out on the WES, and each of us using a different headphone while switching off to compare. I threw this meet together in a parking lot 3 days ago, and sandwiches and Long Island Ice Teas were involved. BrownieLaydee's food played an active role in belly satiation.. The headphones were state of the art. It doesn't get any better than that.
The only fluke (beside the one in my closet that measures voltage and continuity) that we had, was when we hooked up my terabyte flac music HD to Kerry's Thinkpad, so he could co-axial out his home built DAC to his homebuilt Blue Hawaii, and we magically lost my external hard drive. It disappeared of of all of my desktops magically into thin air. A couple of reboots and power plug refittings later, and we were back online.
We ended up using my Esoteric DV-50 balanced out to Kerry's Hawaiian treasure, and he flew solo while the rest of us shared musical bliss on 2 very good stat amps.
davederek stopped by for a while, and he had a big smile on his face most of the time (...better than a good day at work).

There was a pretty sunset, and while most other people were doing laundry and buying Halloween decorations, we were in audio nirvana.

So if Kerry hogged his own amp, no one can name a winner ...
