That would be my father. It's sitting in our basement now. (He also won the Hornet, incidentally.)
Meeting everyone was great - Jude, Yikes, cfcubed, El Doug and Nikongod, among others, were particularly pleasurable. I came within inches of walking home with Ari's beautiful turntable, but it turns out someone else (sorry I don't know your name!) was especially determined to walk away with it. The headphones I enjoyed the most at the meet were the HD800s (the comfort!), the LCD2s (the warmth!) and the HE-6s (the soundstage!). I loved the LCD2s through the Avenson Audio headphone amp, and really enjoyed the T1s out of Ari's SEX with his fantastic Denon.
The vendors were all a pleasure to speak to and very knowledgeable. I'll be posting some pictures later, but everyone I met there was a joy to meet. Dinner afterwards was loads of fun, with lots of interesting stories to go around, and talk both about audio and not. I'll be posting some pictures later with some more in a bit.
I regret not being able to hear the HP1s, and the time I spent with JH audio was entirely too brief, but there's always the next meet. Erik was great at organizing the meet.
