sorry to cause confusion, and thanks Doc for clarifying that.
'mikel' was already taken on Headfi so i used 'Mossback' as i'd used that on some non-audio forums in the past. most audio forums i use my own name as my moniker if mikel is taken. but i noticed that on Headfi everyone has a moniker, and tried to go with that flow.
anyway; i'd like to say thanks to all the attendee's on Saturday for making me feel welcome to your group, and especially to Doc B. for his hospitality. in retrospect; i was having too much fun with people wanting to listen to my Stax set-up and asking about my digital source that i did not spend enough time listening to other stuff and meeting everyone. the vibe on Saturday was very nice. it was great meeting 'Eli from Bellevue' who was just learning about how fine audio can sound.....and many other 'young' guys that have the passion. it's a bit different (and refreshing) compared to my audio club or High End show.....in a very good way.
i did get to hear the Audeze LCD-2's in a number of set-ups which was something i wanted to do and listened to the Jades in Ironbut's tape/custom amp set-up which i loved. as a big tape head i can say there is nothing like good RTR tape.
the LCD-2's did many things right, but i think i like the O2's better so far; simply more detail and the LCD-2's seemed a bit heavy/dark and not as open as the O2's. of course, the LCD-2's were with different amps and sources so it's hard to know exactly what is what.
at some point i need to try and get some LCD-2's to spend time with in my system.
i had a fun time at the Meet and look forward to the next one.
