Hey Koolpep! Yeah that would be great! sending you a pm now. 

 

I don't have expensive gear but I'd love to be part of the next meetup. (Only have the Fidelio X1, MDR-1R, RHA750, Meelec A161, CAL etc). Might give me an inspiration to upgrade. :)

 

Thanks for keeping the scene alive here.

Only?

 

That's already quite some very nice gear. Not everyone has to be a "hoarder" like some of us, haha.

If you do it in a house then one can only have around 5-6 people due to space constraints. Does anyone have some kind of office space they can spare on the weekends to be able to include more people ?

Good point Punit although you will need a day to transport your equipment. 😛

out of the few tubes i have 75's are my favorite, it would be best for you to try it imho i can say is they sound life like and the details are greats a up in quality vs the hugo alone - dont know how express sound in jargon haha.

 

just don't have cash right now to try other tubes hopefully soon. (got 3 tubes in mind to try)

 

but pretty much happy with my setup.

 

i still do have an itch to try an end amp, never ending is it :D

NMK Electronics Ent.in deira recabled my lcd with a silver plated pretty good cable and neutrik connectors

post #611 of 613

Thats good to know. But LCD comes with detachable cable hence is easy to re-cable. Whereas T1 has fixed cable, so re-cabling will involve opening up the HP's, desoldering the old cable from the drivers & then soldering the new cable hence involves some risk if not done properly. That said NMK may be able to do it as I am sure they will have skilled personnel.

Afternoon All,

 

Apologies for the minor thread crashing.....I'm living in Doha at the moment, and this thread seems to be my nearest.  I don't seem to have anything by way of audiophile shops around these parts (unless you consider Beats and Bose!).  I'm in the market for some decent closed cans, th-900s, lcd-xc...but in the proverbial mud as I don't have anywhere to actually audition them....I need to get over to the Emirates so can you recommend a shop per chance?

 

thanks for the help

post #613 of 613

I lived in Doha for 3 years

no audio shop at all

there was one in Salwa Road but it sadly closed due to lack of interest..

I think they opened or going to open a fnac in laguna mall(?) the way to the pearl, but i doubt they will have high end cans..

by the way, i bought very much from usa cause there are no fees in Qatar and the shipping is very fast and efficient

good luck!
