For me the highlight of the show were headinclouds's gorgeous amps. The JLH Class A just blew my mind - got to be my next project I think :)
I quite enjoyed listening to the HD800s - I found a lot of the 'phones I tried to be too bassy for my taste, but the HD800s sounded good in that respect. I liked the top end too, but for example I found the piano on Pyramid Song sounded a bit odd - kind of nasally if that makes sense. They sounded good with Santana though - but maybe that was the aforementioned amp instead.
EddieE's Beyer electrostatics were interesting - first pair of electrostatics I'd ever heard and they were amazing, really magical with female vocals and top end stuff in general. Very enjoyable!
Didn't know where to start with what to listen to when I came in...the first thing I heard were the LCD-2s, which set the bar pretty high! It was a great experience to listen to all this kit I'd been drooling over on the web. The Audio Technica 'phones were another first for me and I was really impressed. They're on the list...
I wanted to hear a Stax setup but got distracted by too much other stuff before I had a chance. Never mind, there's always next time!
Was great chatting to the sponsors too, a great bunch of folks. Really cool how happy everyone was to let people try their gear and how friendly everybody was. Thanks all!
