Brisbane, Australia Meet 17 July 2010 - Impressions - Page 2  

post #16 of 88
Thread Starter 

I came home injured. It looks like the MS ultimate mod finally ko'ed the crappy Grado glue holding the driver shield in place. I've been putting off this for half a year and it took all of 4 minutes to do lol. Now I want to redo the other side too.

 

Well I've got the audio bug again. I have money. Oh crap...

I happened to have listened to all of the four (owning 2). The HE-5 is pretty different to the other three with a much larger and more spacious sound. JIGF was saying that he's had a hard time finding an amp to drive them better than the EF5. They sounded good to me out of the EC Balancing Act but I never got a chance to listen to the EF5 :p. The other thing that was interesting was how smooth the HE-5 was compared to say a RS-1. 

 

Oh yeah, I almost forgot to say how unimpressed I was with the W5000. Jrisles was saying that he was pretty disappointed at first but over time began to appreciate them. I have a similar experience with my AD2000s. Must be an AT thing :p.

 

The time really does fly. 10:30 to 5:30 felt like 2 hours. The room was probably the right size for the amount of people but it was pretty hard to do any critical listening (noise). 

 

It's tomorrow, so who had the cameras...

It's ok don't stress. I can look after all that excess money for you, consider it a safe investment for your (my) future?

On a more serious note I too am awaiting pictures. Go go camera fiends !

Hehe, it's not an ideal listening environment so you can only learn so much from the meet.
 

post #22 of 88

any STAX or LCD-2s there?

 

would love to hear a comparison of those to the HD800s and T1s

Hey guys, I will start by thanking Niall and whoever that was involved in the organization of such a great and healthy event; and thanks to all the members that put so much effort into bringing such amazing gear, truly hope it repeats. Everyone from the girl with the incredible body two tables from where some of us ate to the workers driving a truck into the parking were great.

 

I will post pics first, then I'll post my thoughts when I get time to summarise them. Please excuse the lousy photography, and please identify the ones I am not sure about. They are in chronological order.

Wew photos! :)

post #28 of 88

Good pics.

I noticed the absence of QUSP in the pics.

He must have been stuck in the broom closet finishing off the work that overwhelmed him at the Sydney meet.

I wonder if he will get to listen to a headphone at the next meet - probably not - there's always something to build, repair, fiddle with, tune, waste time on, or desecrate.

Thanks to Niall for putting together the meet. It was a great event with a good turnout :) was very cool that we had a few guys travel great distances to get to the meet.

 

My favourite pair of headphones are still the HD650, I always seem to go back to them. Favourite setup would be Jeff's, his Eddie Current Balancing Act amplifier was simply amazing. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to try it running balanced headphones, maybe next time :)

I think QUSP came towards the end of the meet, so he didn't get any photo ops. Was able to try using a USB DAC with his iPad, pretty cool stuff :)
