Being a student audiophile... - Page 10

So I guess the consensus is that we should have a mini meet of a sort. Since we all live so close together, it wouldn't be too much of a hassle to do in on any weekends in the near future. What time is the best for cal poly students? Since most of you guys are from calpoly, I'll just go along with the time you guys choose. I'm still a freshman with a lot of time :)

 

Also, can one of you guys look for a room we can use at calpoly maybe? I can try, but I don't think you guys would want to drive to CSUF...

 

So, if you are in on the meet idea, please post the date you'd prefer, and if possible, a potential location for our mini meet to take place in!

 

This will be FUN!!

I think most of the rooms in the engineering buildings are open over the weekends 24/7. I don't know the date yet though. Weekend would be the best.

I don't know my way around poly all that well but I could ask my uncle if he has any ideas if you guy's are having trouble finding a room at Poly (Like I said he's a professor there). Another idea is to ask an EE prof, I bet they would be more than supportive of something like this, tinkering is half the fun.

On Saturdays the EE building is open from 9am-3pm. Shouldn't be a problem getting a classroom in there though unless you guys come during finals week heh.

Nice setup you got there V3ng3anc3

Yeah, early spring quarter would be the best. The sooner the better, before I have to start cranking out 20+ pg lab reports or something. :p

 

Thanks Tinola, I can't wait for my desktop amp/dac to arrive (hopefully a step up from portable). :D Are you planning on bringing your Gilmore Lite to the meet?  Would love to try out one of headamp's products.

Yeah, I think so too. If not, we can try getting one of the study rooms in the library on the third floor where they have study sessions, near the elevators. Weekends would be the best, not only for us, but other people that don't have parking passes since parking is free then too. Although if it's on a Saturday I won't be able to make it till sometime around 2-4 pm, due to club meeting (making a competition rocket :D).

Do you guys think I should make a separate thread on Cal Poly mini meet so people that don't know about this thread can also consider coming? More the merrier right? unless there's a restraint on room size?

Sure wish there was a meet in the daytona beach area.

You (or someone else) probably should. would make things easier, and we could stop jacking this thread lol.

 

As for rooms, engineering west and the cic always have open rooms on the weekends.

Yeah, I actually just paid for it today haha. I just need headphones for em. I pretty much started from scratch since I was not really that content with my setup. Probably looking to sell/trade my last headphones(UM3x) for an SR325i or MS2

the EE lounge is often open, that is a good place to do it, good luck on finding sympathetic EE professors, there are only a few who are very approachable (dont go to arakaki or agbo), the grad students in there are generally more approachable, and they have keys to much of the building.

and to the OP: i got into this "vicious cycle" by finding my pair of DT770's at my friend's house that an old tenant left because only one side worked (lucky me). i google'd DT770's, found head-fi, tore them apart, resoldered everything and they worked fine. i've been super busy so i just got around to recabling them and buying an amp after some research on head-fi. being a 4th year ME student and working a part time job i totally understand V3ng3an3 - i hate life right now. anyways, juman231 if you're serious about this stuff do research and get a job then you'll be satisfied.

 

p.s. this is my first post! i've been lurking head-fi all this time haha.



 


HOLY CRAP! (if you have not heard the story yet) that is how I got my sennheisers! the cable over the top was cut so there was only sound out of one side, I bought them off of a guy on clist for $5 and repaired them in the EE project lab. Was some guy just getting awesome headphones and cutting the cables? that is so weird.
