Well i dont have a 14 month old, but i dont see your dreams dying!
Many people would die to have a baby, so consider yourself lucky!!!

There will be other meets!! We have at least 2 a year in NY!!!

Plus many mini-meets in homes too!!!

Theres will be plenty of amps, depending on what you want/need.
Ill have like 8 portables, and other people will have some.
Itll really be worth the trip there for you, being you live close.
Plus you can meet people and youll know who to trust online to ask stuff etc.

well i want to hear a rsa amp and see find LOD will work best with my setup.
post #29 of 31
You wont hear a difference between LODs really. For portable use, dont go crazy with wires. I know everyones going to have an opinion about this, and as usual someone isnt going to agree with me.......but the price you spend on a boutique wire could have been better spent on better phones for even more sound improvement.

Personally i cant hear a sound improvement in only 4 inches or so of wire.
I dont think its enough distance for the signal to travel for the wire to impart any changes to the sound.
Yes i hear differences in 3 foot(1 metre) cables and speaker cables.
Also, i just dont think portable equipment is sensitive enough on the average compared to a highend home system.

Just buy a well made LOD that you fancy the looks of for under $50 and be happy with it. Dont make yourself crazy. I have boutique wires. I went that route.
If i see you at the Bayside meet 13 march, ask me and ill be happy to give you a listen and play with some stuff. Ill have different cables for you to try.

Youll actually hear what makes a difference and what makes so little difference (if any) thats its not worth it.

If I had to choose from those three, It would be the Pico. I admit I have never heard it but have read countless reviews on it. Based on these reviews and my experience with Justin's products (I myself own an AE2 which is made by the same company , HeadAmp), I would choose the Pico. I have heard a few RSA's and liked my AE2 better.
