We where ,Giants almost blew the game ,Jets plain sucked
Thanks to Aaron for hosting this mini-meet,& brownielady for the sandwiches.
Great to hang with Kerry,Ari, Aaorn & Dave(for the little time he spent at the meet).
The three amps all had differant presentations.As well as the Headphones them self.
I used the Jade, Omega MkIIs MkI,& MKIIs,He90 on all three amps
I also used the Sigma Gammas on the Wes,I would call the Gammas a smaller Omega ,Very similar in sound just not as deep a headstage or wide.
I missed the Koss not reallizing what they where because of not having the plates on the earpieces(next Time).
I was impressed how good the Jades sounded with the three amps.WES
Had the deeper & wider headstage of all the 3 amps present ,a
little lusher sounding as well in a good way (not to be mistaken for uncontrolled) it had good bass ,highs & detail.
I sat on the couch with the OII Mk1s with my eyes closed & just stopped Listening to the equipment ,just to the Music.
HA you are going to be very Happy with the Jades with The WesRSA A10
Grabbed whatever headphone that was plugged into & held a vise grip to it,everything was tight with this amp it seemed to have more omph .
The A10 had great dynamic swing a more upfront sound,very lively.
Using the HE90 it was easily noticeable that the width & depth of the headstage colapsed compared to the Wes.Not meaning it didn't have decent headstage the Wes was better at it.Blue Hawaii Kerry Version
The Kerry BH was setup by itself with the esoteric DV50 as a source( a better source then the GO8).
Kerry did a great job with this amp.
The OII MkI really shined with this amp,this is the first time I actually got to hear the BH in a quiet enviorment.The BH seemed really well balanced in sound.
It did a good job with the other headphones as well,but the OIImk1s seemed like its soulmate.
The He90s where a little bright with the BH ,I would have liked to try some NOS Mullards instead of the I believe where JJs.
Three great amps ,prefferance & headphones used would make which one to buy.
I could live with any of the three & be very Happy
