Chicago Mini Meet - Saturday May 14th - Page 5  

post #61 of 91
Thread Starter 
Please come to the meet. Ray indicated there was room when I talked with him recently. Just come to meet the head-fiers is reason enough.

My brother lives in Valpariso. I would just use Google maps to find the route. The only way I know would be I80 to I90/I94 up to Skokie.

Sorry but I'm not going to finish my Crack amp with Speedball upgrade in time for the meet.

I will bring the headphones that I mentioned.

If anyone wants me to still bring the Oppo for cd's let me know.

As long as the wife doesn't decide to drop the baby that weekend I am there.  Getting more interested in really seeing what everyone else is using out there.

We are now just 1 week away.  Can't wait to see everyone.  It should be a great mini meet.  

 

There is still room for a few more if anyone else is still on the fence. biggrin.gif

I just looked that up on Ray's site.  For $DEITY's sake that's insane.  Its good to know I can weld with it when I'm done listening to my headphones.

 

He just should have double one-upped Schiit by calling it the Ragnarok....

If any one has the LCD-2 please do bring them as I have the balanced cable from Moon Audio. We can listen to them on the DarkStar amp. I do have the HE-6 with balanced cable from Moon audio also.

We have limited outlets so please bring what ever AC wires you have to share with others.

Looking forward to seeing you all this coming Saturday.

Cheers.

Ray,

 

I can bring two Whiplash/Locus Design power cables with me, as well as a HE-500, courtesy of Fang.   My HE-6 will not be available as it is being hardwired.  Also, the portable gear shown (iPad 2/Solo/iBasso DB2/SR71B+HE-500).    Just as a fleeting initial impression as I started the burn-in, but the sound signature--using the balanced stock cable of the HE-6es--reminds me of the balanced R10s in terms of sound stage and midrange performance.  It takes a fraction of power out of the SR71B to drive than it's older brother.   Should be pretty exciting to listen to it with Ray's source gear and the Dark Star prototype.

 

Sorry for the low-qual iPhone photos.

Wow. Very excited to check out the HE-500s. I will have my HE-5LEs to compare, and the Little Dot VI tube amp.

Does anyone have any high resolution jazz or vocalist CD's to bring to the meet?  Ray has a fantastic CD player that would play these and it would be great to get to hear his new Dark Star with his CD player and high resolution CD.

I'll bring some good ones.

Wow, I wish I'd seen this thread earlier.  If I can break my prior engagements, I'll be sure to let you guys know.  I could bring just about anything in my sig.

I talked with Ray today and the "Dark Star" has landed.  The casework came in yesterday and Ray was able to get it anodized as well.  He was putting the back plate on it when I called.  Thank you Ray for going the extra step to have it available for all of us to get a chance to listen to it Saturday.  biggrin.gif
