IC: Philadelphia,Delaware and New Jersey Are mini meet - Page 3  

post #31 of 99

Just added a Little Dot MkIII and a pair of 650's to my arsenal.  I'll bring'em along.

post #32 of 99

Hi there... I just registered to this forum so I could post in this thread.  I'm very new to high-end audio research and don't have any equipment really... all I have is a set of Sennheiser EH-150's but I am looking to upgrade soon.  I thought attending this could be a good learning experience for me.  If it's ok, I'd love to come, except I don't have any equipment to contribute.  I can bring snacks and beer though :-)

 

I'm hoping to be pointed in the right direction.. as of right now I'm leaning towards ordering an amp from Schiit. I'm uncertain if I should get the tube or tubeless design.  And then after that upgrading my headphones to something like the Sennheiser HD555 or the Grado SR-60i's to start. I have plenty more research to do before I order anything though.  I currently mainly listen to digital files from my pc but I'm slowly building a vinyl collection that I'd like to listen to through my new set up.

 

Thanks!

Thats great. I also never have heard the 650. My Taboo is in the house now so it will all fine tuned and ready by the meet.

It's great to see both newbies and veteran members showing up. This is what Head-Fi is all about. I know Frank will be a great host. I'll help out the best I can. If anyone has any questions please feel free to PM either Frank or myself.

I would suggest if you have a GPS to use it. If not Google Maps will do fine.

For those of you bringing equpiment and it's your first time going to a meet, make out a check list so you don't forget to bring anything or leave anything at Frank's. Things like extension cords and power strips are highly recommended. Don't forget your interconnects. If you have headphone stands, it's not a bad idea to bring those also. Bring your favorite music. The best way to test new equipment is to listen to something you already know well. There's a good change between Frank and myself we have something you know, but you can't be sure. A DAP with a mini-to-RCA cord isn't a bad idea.


As for the old timers, just come and enjoy.


See you there.


Peace,

Ross

Frank, have you been compiling a list of equipment being brought (not to add to your list of things to do since you are the host bigsmile_face.gif).

I just edited the 1st page. If I missed some gear please post on this site and I will add it as I see it. Gonna be a blast with the gear showing up.

It would be great if we could get a pair of Hifiman HE-6s.  Can anyone get a pair for the meet?

immtbiker has HE6 but I was waiting to see if he was going to bring any other stuff before posting it. But Aaron has a pair and last time I checked he was bringing them.

Also Ross was right. Do bring power strips and extension cords and your own power cables as I only have one spare cable in the house. I have maybe one other power strip that can be used for the meet. I am setting up another tables coming out of my dining room and we should be able to have 12 completes setups for sure. I will PM my phone number and address as we get closer to the meet. Aaron and our new member are bringing the beer. Ross and I are providing the food. I will also have soda for non drinkers. Its shaping up to be a nice time. I also hear Aaron wife makes a mean brownie. So if you want them send PM to Immtbiker for the brownies request.

Super.  I want to see how they play with my Leben before I get them.  Ask him to bring the single-ended adapter as well as the speaker adapter (if he has that).

post #43 of 99

I got a phone call yesterday for a side project and decided to jump the gun and order some stuff.  I ordered a set of Grado SR125i's and the Schiit Asgard.  This seemed like a good start for me.  So I will bring these as well as the beer.  Any specific requests?

Yuengling :)


Yes, please remember all your cords, wires, cables, connections, extension cords, power strips and what not. I'll bring an SPL meter for those that want to volume match. If anyone else has one it's not a bad idea. I'll bring my volt meter. Did you ever want to see how closely your drivers are matched? Also if you're AR like me, a few microfiber towels might come in handy.


Good list of equipment coming so far. It'll be fun.
