Sydney/Blue Mountain Meet July 11

post #1 of 170
Thread Starter 

I'd like to welcome you to a Sydney/Blue Mountains meet, on July 11. From those I have already spoken too, the gear promises to be excellent. The meet will be held at my home, I have 3 main areas of space that could be utilised.
I'm located in the Lower Blue Mountains, in the suburb of Blaxland, parking will be plentiful and I'm also on the trainline (around a 70 minute trip from Central Station and a 15min casual walk from Blaxland station). I will firm up a time, as well as loads of other details as we move closer to date.
If numbers are around the same as the meet we had at Sydney Uni, space will not be a problem. But there may come a point where I'll have to limit gear, let's just see how we go.
If you are interested please post here and let me know what gear you'll be bringing. If you have any ideas or requests please let me know, I'll do my best to help.

You do not have to bring any gear to attend.


Train timetable.

Check the correct date is selected since is not yet available.





I’ve reached the maximum number of people I can hold for this meet, I’m sorry if you missed out, but for the convenience and comfort of other members I’ve had to limit attendees.

w00t, about time

I'll be there. My gear list will likely change by then, but currently what's in my signature will be what I'm bringing:

Pico DAC-Only
Burson HA160 amp
HD600's with Vortex cable
Cowon S9
post #4 of 170
Excellent =)

I'll be there with:


Pico Slim


Dt880pro will be there.
For others info my beta22 is balanced only and 4-pin terminated so feel free to bring your correctly(!) terminated 4-pin cans.
Just like John it is setup for an overall gain of 4x so k1000's may see the end of the dact's travel...

I plan to have my b24 finished by then so if it is I'll bring it for the light show hehe.

That's awesome of you John, thanks! I'd love to come along of course, and can bring the majority of what is in my signature, plus a pair of HD800 that should be arriving in a couple of days Like Covenant, my gear list is sure to change, but any changes will be upgrades

Please let us know of course if there is anything we can bring along, or if we can chip in financially to help out. No reason you should have to fund the day when we all get to enjoy it so much!

Hi guys. Great to hear there's a new meet happening. I'm keen to attend. As for equipment, I can bring a pair of Taket H2 which have just had a major structural and electrical overhaul. They can now be driven directly from a powerful speaker amp, so I'm curious to hear them driven by one of the balanced b22s

I might also be able to bring a DAC of my own design, which is currently at the assembly stage. Hopefully enough of it will be finished by the date of the meet.

How are they terminated?
post #8 of 170
At the moment, single plug 4-pin XLR. I'll reterminate to whatever though.

How much voltage can the b24 put out? This thing needs 50Vpp to get loud. The impedance ranges between infinite at DC and 50 ohms at the top.

So we're competing with the Brissy July meet?

If there are some nice Stax there I'll try my best to turn up.

I can bring anything that's in my profile (but knowing this is head-fi everything is subject to change).

I just checked the web site and I assume you have the transformer box?
You'll need that to connect the headphones to any speaker power amp afaik.

We could combine, do a Brisbane to Sydney 24 hour Tour de Headphone?

LOL, so you're going to fly down here?
post #13 of 170
Well, considering I am saving for my new rig I might have to walk.
post #14 of 170
Wow this is great news. Id definitely love to attend my 1st meet. I can bring what is in my sig. Really looking forward to it.

I don't have the transformer any more. These are heavily modded, they can be driven directly from some power amps. The bal. b22s should do well.
