Stumptown Head-Fi Meet FTW! - Page 2  

post #16 of 70

Thanks to Ken and to all the Portlanders who made us Sounders feel welcome. Nice to See Andrew from Maximo again and meet Alex from Audeze.

Never been to Portland before. The Portlanders made it a great first experience. And many thanks to Equus for being able to Carpool with him. Sachu you are the tour guide.

The one thing besides the people that made the meet for me was finally getting to listen to the PS1000's. I listen to them on many rigs. Seamasters Modded WA22 still smokes a regular WA22. Was able to A/B them with the PS1000's. Got to listen to the LCD-2's again. On the Computer rig with Vinnies new amp/dac the T1's sounded better the the Audeze with New Order playing, Audeze were better with AC/DC. Just a few thoughts

Looks like everybody had a Great Time. I wish I could have been there, but this weekend was the worst. Both of the other Weekend/Graveyard techs were gone so I had no one to ask to cover my Sunday shift. Lokk forward to the next one and the new store

Cheers

The improvement made on modded WA22 compare to stock WA22 is quite large, it surprised me too. It even drive PS1000 to a point I don't have too much to complain. I know I have been bad mouth about Grado. Honorble mention to 6GV8 Micro Tube Amp, priced at $265, sound very good driving LCD-2 and T1. For the price, it is a steal

That is great Hammy What did you get? How did your rig sound with the CD's? Did they make your rig sing or rock your socks?

Great meet.  Really enjoyed the variety of music at hand, seemed like a lot of LCD2s there but that was one of the main things I wanted to listen to again, and besides there were only fanboys there anyway!  Planning on getting in the waiting list soon myself.  I'll make sure to bring cables to the next Seattle meet so that the Zero amp can be a little more than just a tabletop accessory.

Seamaster, watch out. A few more meets and your wife will have her own table of gear. She was listening to a lot of gear this time!

I thought he wasnt going to bring his wife anymore. Be careful, she might find something expensive that she wants.

We agreed in order to go to Portland meet, we hit the Coach store on the way back. But I manage to milk it untill 7:00pm when we got there , Coach store was closed. Perfect!

 

And I got my LCD-2 coming too!

Hahaha...that's pretty devious, Seamaster.

 

Nice to hear about your LCD-2's.  Hope you enjoy them.  Now you gotta find an amp that satisfies you, huh?

Seamaster,

 

Thanks for the evaluation on the cables it was great talking with you and the guys. Please do email me that info we talked about. Again guys it was a great time must do that again soon when we get the new shop all dialed in. I will try and get some guest speakers or something out of the ordinary for future ones.

 

Ken

This is one thing that I am very eagerly looking forward to..trying out the LCD-2 cables.

 

That'll be really cool if you get guest speakers and such Ken..we'll rock out at your new digs when it opens up shortly. look forward to it...

 

I could've sworn there were more pictures that were taken yesterday..perhaps Alex has been busy and hasn't posted them yet.

Where are those great after meet pix, only have one on the phone?

post #29 of 70

Thanks again to Alex for coming up! (Was that the biggest selection of LCD-2's actually being used at one time, that you've seen? Anyway, I still intend to find a way to get you/Sankar a case of good Portland IPA.)

 

Thanks to Dave for the premium snacks. And to Gil and John for some great music. As well as to the Seattle contingent just for making it down.

 

And of course thanks to KB just for being the swingin' dude that you are!

 

It was great to see everybody, and try out the latest unobtanium. I just wonder what the PDX meets are going to be like, once everybody has their LCD-2. I'm already missing the "homebrew ortho tuning of the week" vibe!

 

And of course "Mr Orange" (Donald), you were sorely missed! I'm sure you are representing, up on the shores of Lake Michigan. Able to find anything to drink there yet? At least there's the custard (I recommend Oscar's in Waukesha).

Funny about the custard.  When we lived in Milwaukee, we were only blocks away from Kopp's on Port Washington Ave.  I still crave that stuff and stop in anytime I'm in Milwaukee.
