I was particularly happy that I got a chance to try out two different Woo Audio amps, the 6 and 22. I am looking to buy a new nonportable amp, and these listens probably was the nudge I needed to move past the Cayin or similar and on to something a bit more pricey...woe is my wallet :-)

 

Also, this was my first meet and I thoroughly enjoyed it - will definitely see you again in 2011, where I conveniently enough will have moved to Jutland.

Did you forget to listen to my WA2? ;-)

 

It was a great meet, lot's of interesting stuff to listen to and enjoyable company. Who wouldn't like a hole day of listening to and talking about headphones?????

That wa2 was seriously sweet with the high impedance cans!

Had to hurry home and purchase both "Dear Heather" and "A Hundred Highways" after listening to tracks from those CDs on your setup smily_headphones1.gif

No, I actually did listen to your WA2, and tried to tell about it. Apparently I just couldn't control my hans enough to stop myself from accidently adding an extra '2' on the back of it. I meant your WA2, and it was great.

 

Edit: Spelling.

Touristy things could be

 

  • Rosenborg Palace with the Danish crown jewels
  • Christiansborg palace (house of theDanish parliament)
  • Amalienborg palace (home of the royal family when staying in Copenhagen)
  • Chruches (Frelserkirken on Amager, Holmens kirke, Marmorkirken)
  • Museums (National museum, national art gallery, Ny Carlsberg glyptotek, Thorvaldsensmuseum)
  • Must sees outside Copenhagen reachable by train from central station (Frederiksborg palace in Hillerød, Kronborg castle in Helsingør (Shakespears Hamlet), Vikingship museum and Cathedral in Roskilde)
  • Nyhavn where you must have lunch in f.ex. Nyhavns Færgekro (you must try the herring buffet, typically Danish)
  • A good place for dinner and to try some Danish beer could be Nørrebr Bryghus (they brew their own beer on site and incorporate it in the food as well, reservation essential most days)
  • Another good dinner place (if you can get a table, might be easier for lunch) is Noma that has just been named best restaurant in the world. But it is EXPENSIVE.
  • If you get a nice sunny day and like to see old rural building go to the open air museum (Frilandsmuseet in Sorgenfri)
  • The Cistern glass museum in the old water cistern under neath the big lawn outside Copenhagen Zoo.

 

All of this and a bit more I did in 4 days together with anthonyfirst when he visited me in August.

Also remember good warm clothes, there is an fair amount of snow in Denmark atm and the temperature is around zero degrees at day and well below at night.

 

NC, how about Tivoli, is it not open? That is a must see ;)

 

Then there are always things like the little mermaid, but I dont know how interresting this is for you :)

Aamanns are making a revolution for the traditional Danish lunch, still they are true to tradition, just skipped the boring stuff.

Too bad that one site isn't available in english. Oh and the Noma place is out of budget wink.gif
