ok, last news
I went to the Hilton today to set up the room, and here are some good and bad news:
) We do have the room (I couldn't reach Michel Plante for the last week so I was a bit worried).
) We are not alone: planet of sound distribution has a table in the room.
) Good news, they only use headphones, and they have a pair of Beyer T1s!!!!
) Right beside us is the sennheiser booth, and they have a pair of balanced Hd800s.
) The room is slightly noisy from audiobasics near us, but it is not too bad as some rooms are right in the open (the sennheiser booth is at an hoooooooorrible location, right beside the electric stairs).
) I set up my stuff and everything works fine.
) My twinhead sounds brighter than I recall, but it should work wonders with warmer phones, especially high-Z ones.
) We have more than enough sources and amps to serve everyone this weekend: sources [xindak cdp, denon 5900, raysonic, cambridge 89 for budget setups if you want to try it, music hall mmf-5, hifiman hd-801] and amps [burson 160, head-direct ef5, asl hb1, asl twinhead]
) We might be missing some cables, especially interconnects. Bring everything you have!
See you during the weekend guys!
